Thanks for visiting! I'm Liz.

I love running a small, local business. 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 massage therapy as a means of healing on deep levels, both physiologically and emotionally. We live in a competitive and demanding world, and massage therapy is a great tool for bringing us out of the fight/flight/freeze response many of us live in. I also love that massage therapy is both a science and an art, and that it empowers clients to develop a deeper awareness of their bodies. Massage therapy has been a big part of my own health and healing process, and I love facilitating that for others. 

I offer therapeutic massage for all types of individuals, as well as oncology massage therapy and manual lymphatic drainage. My work is usually described as slow, specific, and deeply relaxing; I hear a lot of snoring on my table. I'm not a "no pain no gain" therapist; I'm not afraid to use an elbow, but I have found that more subtle work can often reach deeper layers of tissue. 

In my free time, I'm usually hanging with friends, family, and/or my spunky rescue dog, Glenna. I love being outdoors, and am an avid traveler. I've been all over the world with nothing but a 40L backpack. Some of my favorite experiences have been working as a goat shepherd on a mountain outside Jerusalem, and walking the Camino de Santiago through Spain. 

I look forward to meeting you and working together!
