No matter how much you enjoy what you do, there are still stresses and tensions in everyday life that take a toll on your mind and body. Massage Therapy can help reverse the damage done by this stress, and do it drug-free. Massage does more than just relax your mind and relieve tired muscles; it restores function and allows you to do more without NSAIDs or other medications.
At Radiant Healing, you can expect a warm greeting, a comfortable environment, and a customized session focused on your immediate needs. Prior to the session, we’ll discuss your current health conditions, areas of stress and pain, and concerns you may have so that you can receive the maximum physical and emotional benefit every time. Check out our various practice modalities here.
How much does it cost? Our prices are exceptionally competitive with bodywork practices in and around the area. Our clients tell us that they receive extraordianry value for the healing relief that we provide. We often run special deals (that sell out fast), so check out and Like our Facebook Page to keep abreast of those deals.
What’s In A Name?
When I opened the door to my practice in 2012, I was already a seasoned massage therapist, having completed my training and receiving my license in 1994. Years of work, passion, and love brought me to that point, and I can safely say that all of those things are not only still present, they have continued to grow and expand. As I expanded the practice, I kept feeling that something about its name just did not sit well with me. It wasn’t bad, but as I grew I felt as if the name may have limited me in some ways. Don’t get me wrong, “Radiant Hands Healing” expressed what I did at that time – energetic hands-on massage that helped heal mind, body, and soul. It felt right, and I went with it.
Fast forward 25 years later from the inception of my work, and I feel as if there are so many expanded forms of healing that we can accomplish together. Couple that with the pragmatic fact that many clients felt that the name was a little long, so I settled on simply shortening the name to “Radiant Healing”. My original design is intact; the healing that we perform here goes far beyond the physicality of pressing on muscle tissue and releasing fascia – it remains spiritual and energetic… radiant. None of this changes anything for my amazing clients except that now it’s easier to tell someone else to go to “radianthealing.com” to get here. And all of the old stuff will continue to work for now.
