After earning a BA in Psychology, Meghan spent several years working before she started looking for something that would allow her to help people and feel good while doing it. A friend suggested looking into massage therapy and the rest is history.
Meghan studied massage at the Cortiva Institute of Massage Therapy. She learned Swedish, myofascial, sports, deep tissue and prenatal massage techniques. She then continued her education with courses in Mana Lomi, Thai, migraine relief and Arvigo techniques of Mayan abdominal therapy. She incorporates these techniques to customize every session. She believes that how an individual handles stress has an immense impact on overall health—and that regular massage, whether for acute injury, chronic pain or routine maintenance, is an integral part of self-care.
