It is her belief that exercise should be fun, invigorating and never, ever boring!
Her passion is to instill in her clients a true enjoyment of physical fitness so that it never seems like a chore, but a gift that your mind and body deserves.

Andrew Piekos, Massage Therapist
My mission is to assess each person extensively to design a specific treatment plan tailored to that person’s needs. Results are a key ambition and motivation in my practice.
Therapeutic touch is an instinctive and eloquent form of communication that has been molded into a healing art. We go through so much in life that we forget to take some time to ourselves to just relax and breathe. This is what I can help with: to help you relax, to take some of the tension and stress away, to get the body back to balance.
Here's the beauty of bodywork: Its benefits are compounded when massage is utilized as a frequent therapy. Regular massage is a gift to yourself. Through the power of structured, healing touch, massage helps the body run smoothly, like keeping a musical instrument in perfect tune. The more you get, the more it does.
Taking part in this form of regularly-scheduled self-care plays a huge part in how healthy you'll be and how youthful you'll remain with each passing year. Consider massage appointments a necessary piece of your health and wellness plan.
I specialize in Therapeutic Massage, Deep Tissue, and Swedish Massage.
I look forward to helping you reconnect with your body!
