Thanks for visiting! I'm Liz.
My mission is to provide high quality massage therapy and personal service in a cozy, down to earth environment.
I'm an Atlanta native, and have been a massage therapist and manual lymphatic drainage therapist since 2015. I have always been drawn to holistic health practices and alternative medicine, but never considered pursuing a career of it until I was already working a corporate job in Public Relations. One day after work, what started as a curious Google search for "healing arts schools" turned into my career.
I believe in the multilayered benefits of massage, and I have experienced firsthand how skilled, safe, intentional touch can bring about physiological and emotional healing. I view massage as a tool for helping people live in a challenging world in a more aware and embodied way. Massage therapy is amazing- it is both a science and an art, and has been a big part of my own health and healing process. I am grateful that I get to be part of that process in other people's lives.
I offer therapeutic massage for relief from stress and chronic or acute pain, as well as oncology massage therapy and manual lymphatic drainage. My work is usually described as slow, specific, and super relaxing. I'm not a "no pain no gain" therapist; I'll use an elbow if the situation calls for it, but I have found that more subtle work can often reach deeper layers of tissue and bring about more lasting relief.
In my free time, I love to be with friends, family, and my goofy rescue dog, Glenna. I love adventuring, and have been all over the world with nothing but a 40L backpack. Some of my favorite experiences so far were working as a goat shepherd on a mountain outside Jerusalem, hiking the beautiful red rocks in Sedona, and walking the Camino de Santiago through Spain.
I would be honored to be a part of your healing and health journey. I hope to meet you soon.
