Client receiving Oncology MassageYou can relax, and I won’t be chatty.

First, you’ll enjoy your massage in a quiet atmosphere & without feeling rushed.

My friends say that I’m funny & caring. But when I’m giving a massage, your session time is concentrated on you. I won’t be talking when you’re trying to relax.

Get focused time on your muscles that need it the most.

Besides the fact that you’ll get some peace & quiet, your massage can be focused on a specific area where you feel tense or stressed. Are you on your feet at work all day, or do you sit at a computer for work or school? Is there a “spot” where you most need help?

Don’t put off feeling better! Come see me to get help with your sore or tight muscles. Massage is especially effective for the tension in your neck, arms, shoulders, or back.

Before beginning your massage, we can talk about your goals and make a plan to customize your session.

Oh, by the way… your 60-minute massage means just that. You’ll get 60 minutes of actual massage time on my table. None of that “50-minute hour” stuff.

Convenient, quiet office location.

Located in Virginia Beach, VA.

*Finalizing details for my new location, and reopening in July! Please sign up for my email and I will send you an update!

Specializing in support for clients who are dealing with cancer.

If you have been affected by cancer, massage may help you with your physical and emotional side effects. Research suggests that oncology massage can offer many benefits, when you’re going through treatment and afterwards!

Can someone with cancer get a massage? Yes!

There are some special questions that I will need to ask about your treatment and how it’s affected you. Plus, some modifications that can make oncology massage a bit different from Swedish or other massage styles.

And so, I’ve taken advanced training to be able to work with you safely. I’m a preferred provider with the Society for Oncology Massage. And if it helps you feel comfortable, please ask any questions you have. Learn more about Oncology Massage here.

Book your massage online.

When I resume offering massages, I will have convenient online scheduling… so you can always see what’s available in real time. You will be able to check my calendar and reserve your appointment easily, without having to play phone tag!

How my massages can help you:

Massage therapist works on a client's lower leg• Relieve your headaches or back pain

• Ease some of the side effects of cancer treatment: such as pain, anxiety, depression, nausea, and fatigue

• Manage stress and tension from your job

• Enjoy weekend activities & sports with less soreness afterward

• Take some time for self-care!

Quiet Strength is just me… a local, one-person business.

You’ll be confident that you’re working with the same therapist (me) every time… instead of taking your chances that your favorite LMT will “disappear” from a franchised massage location 🙂

Your massage is the way you want it.

Need an extra pillow? Want the table warmer turned up, prefer a certain genre of music, looking for help with a specific muscle group? I’ll keep notes about your preferences for your next appointment.

Don’t put off feeling better!
