Growing up, I never imagined being a therapist.
Actually, when I was in kindergarten, I wanted to be a tree.
My parents believe in natural healing, so, growing up I got massage and chiropractic. I went to college to be a teacher but after a few years I knew college wasn't for me.
I'm still not sure what drew me to massage, but, after my first day of massage school I realized I had found my passion.
My passion is healing and facilitating the well being and harmony of the body, mind, and spirit.
I use my intuition to guide my clients through each session. Every client is different so no session is the same.
Through my technique of massage, therapy, and reiki, physical stresses of the body and mind are relieved. This allows the body to naturally begin the process of healing.
I have discovered that when you commit to getting massage therapy on a regular basis you will feel healthier, happier, and revitalized. I invite you to experience and enjoy the difference.
I am a nationally certified & licensed massage therapist. I graduated from the Core Institute of Massage Therapy in 2001.
I am certified in pregnancy and infant massage, which is now one of my specialties, as well as being a Doula. I am so proud to have the privilege to provide and help women have a positive birthing experience.
I am also trained in Ashiatsu Oriental Bar Therapy™ . For a complete healing experience, I balance the flow of energy using Teiki and Meditation.
Pure Harmony is my first baby.
I was doing massage at a chiropractic office one day when I realize I wanted more for my massage career and for my life. It was an exciting realization but it made me really nervous and scared at the same time.
I never thought I’d want to own my own business . Until this day I was content working for someone else.
Being able to help people on my own terms was really important to me. If a client needed more time than what was scheduled, I wanted to be able to do that.
If a pregnant client wanted to talk about her birth plan after her massage, I wanted to give her that option.
At first I rented a room at a holistic wellness center, where I stayed for five years.
I loved being my own boss, making my own schedule and having the freedom to meet the needs of my clients. Renting a room helped ease me into running my own business.
In 2010, I realized the holistic wellness center was no longer a fit for me. I decided to rent a room at another massage establishment in Dunedin.
It was a beautiful location and my clients loved coming there.
Two months after I signed the lease the owner informed me that she could no longer pay rent at the studio and was closing in two weeks.
That’s when I started freaking out!
Where am I going to go? What am I going to do? Should I go to peoples’ homes, should I have them come to my house?
Should I open my own massage studio?
I started driving around through Dunedin looking at different places for rent.
I saw the for rent sign outside of where Pure Harmony is now.
It was called Lilly’s, a cigar bar.
My husband and I decided to go inside the cigar bar and have a drink.
It was dark and dingy and I was wondering how I could make this space beautiful serene.
Something told me to go for it, do it, and that everything would be OK.
Two weeks later I signed the lease and got my keys.
That day I came to the space, walked in, and literally cried.
It was so ugly inside, it stunk like cigars and the ceiling was black.
My amazing, talented husband reassured me that we can make Pure Harmony everything I wanted it to be and needed it to be for my clients.
So I put on my big girl pants and we started the renovation process.
It took us 6 months and on August 14, 2010 we had our open house!
I haven’t looked back since.
Although Pure Harmony is my first baby, I also have twins! Landry and Neysah.
Owning Pure Harmony has made it possible for me to work and follow my passion, as well as fulfilling another dream of being a mom.
I love getting to play with my smart, funny and adorable kids. The best of both worlds!
I am so blessed and thankful to have a balanced and happy life.
The twins started Kindergarten this year and I can’t believe how fast they’re growing.
The current location of Pure Harmony has been so amazing. We love Dunedin and being the premiere massage studio serving clients all over Tampa Bay.
I am so excited to say that we need more space! As of October 1, we will be moving just a few blocks from our current location.
More massage rooms, more services, more wellness, more #pureharmony!
I can’t wait to see all of the amazing energy this new space will bring.
I am so thankful to you all for coming on this journey with me. It’s been an incredible so far and the future looks even brighter.
Please accept this as a personal invitation from me to come and enjoy all of the benefits of massage.
We now have a new online booking system and it’s such a time saver! You can book your massage directly online, buy packages, and get a gift for that special someone in your life.
I’ve had my struggles and doubts along the way but I wouldn’t change any of it. Thank you so much for all of your support ~ I can’t wait to see you again!
