Tiny House Massage Studio location was the bees knees. It's a converted 210 square feet tiny house that really takes your breath away. I can honestly say she WAS the neighborhood's best-kept secret (haha!). Now here we are, three amazing therapists later with opportunities to expand! We had to close our Tiny House location until she finds her forever home. However, our same services are being continued at our new location in East Atlanta Village.
What really sets us apart is how empowered my therapists are to give the sessions clients actually need. Any studio can give a relaxing fluff and buff session - but we do in-depth interviews with our clients to determine what stretches and alignment techniques our clients need to not only feel better, but walk out actually being better. There is no upcharge to our CBD products, hot towel treatments, and stretching. I firmly believe that clients should have access to all the tools in our tool belt to feel better now.
I started my career after graduating from Atlanta School of Massage in August of 2010. I joined the healing team at Absolute Healthcare Chiropractic to perform Neuromuscular and Postural techniques. Our goal was to help train our clients bodies to hold a correct posture. There, I fell in love with all the subtleties of massage and the effects they bring to the body.
In 2012, I was recruited by Erika Larson LMT & RT to join a budding field of research massage. She is the lead research massage therapist in the partnership between Emory and Atlanta School of Massage. We were drafted to design and write a study with Dr. Mark Rapport that would begin to shed a light on the emotional and chemical by byproduct of massage with subjects who suffer from General Anxiety Disorder.
The study concluded in 2016. A synopsis of the study is below. After the study concluded, I was inspired to learn more about the human body. I was able to achieve my additional coursework at Chamberlain College of Nursing. After two years of Anatomy & Physiology, Applied Kinesiology, Chemistry, Microbiology, and Pharmacology, I felt complete. I ended my education and started to build my own practice, in my darling Tiny House!
