Learning is a lifelong passion of mine. When I was a child I wanted to be three things: chef, psychologist, and massage therapist. I began cooking for my family at the age of eight and entered the professional kitchen at 15. After completing culinary school in Baltimore, MD, I continued my journey as personal chef, restaurateur, event planner, caterer and healthy lifestyle coach.
My adventurous nature manifested in a life-long love of travel and in the performance world, creating fire dancing, stilt walking and adagio balancing acts for crowds as big as 50,000.
Seeking more knowledge, I earned my Psychology degree and then worked in hospitals and research laboratories managing clinical trials. I knew it was time to shift my focus after moving to California, where I chose to explore massage therapy.
Once I began my journey into the healing arts, I knew it was what I am meant to do for the rest of my life! I took all of the massage courses the college had to offer, then continued to train in prenatal, orthopedic, Thai, and shiatsu with lymphatic drainage and craniosacral as my main focus. I am drawn to these gentle-touch, clothes-on therapies because of my life -long battle with chronic pain and swelling. I have not only seen their effectiveness for my own pain management but also for many other conditions such as migraines, inflammatory diseases, Lyme disease, TMJ disorders, depression and anxiety. My unique style combines both eastern and western medicine for a holistic approach to massage therapy.
I am excited to support clients’ pursuits of improved well-being through massage therapy in Chattanooga as well as education and creation of delicious and approachable, nutrient dense meals. I seek to help each person feel empowered in their healthcare.
I started realizing the profound impact of holistically working with the body when I began my yoga teacher training. I have taught many different styles of yoga on both the east and west coasts. Through these gentle stretching and movement techniques, I became curious to learn more about the human body.
I chose to pursue this interest by attending massage school, I graduated from National Holistic Institute of Massage Therapy in 2014. After many years as a sports massage therapist, I started down the craniosacral path. The most transformation observed with clients occurred with light-touch modalities, not brutally stripping muscle tissue. Since then Craniosacral Therapy and Lymphatic Drainage have become my focus.
I am dedicated to continually furthering my education and honing crucial skills in order to be of the most benefit to my patients.
Cypris and Dustin met in San Jose, CA in 2014 at one of his awesome yoga classes. They instantly bonded over their similar goofy and geeky dedication to the crafts they choose to pursue. After enjoying separate adventures spanning the United States, they are excited to reunite in Chattanooga, TN. Their mission is to spread the word about the power of gentle-touch massage modalities.
