Hi, I'm Holly. Thanks for stopping in. I am a Certified Massage Therapist (CMT) and a Registered Nurse (RN) in the Northeast Kingdom of Vermont. I also have my Bachelor's of Science in Nursing (BSN) degree. I love to learn, and will continue to learn. I have over 600 hours of training from Elements of Healing (located in Essex Junction, VT), Massage and Fundamentals of Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM) program. Together, we will work to free any stagnation in your body and mind by using a holistic approach and multiple healing modalities.  Come in for the relaxation, working out of tension and sore areas and let me help you begin recovery from your injuries, surgeries and illnesses. We are partners in your wellness, let me help you achieve balance within your self. Please don't hesitate to contact me with any questions you may have by emailing me at



I wish to help others understand the importance of reaching balance in their body, mind and soul. Stress is toxic to the body. Stress can come from many sources. Learning what causes your body stress and how to get rid of it is the foundation to your healing. Massage is a basic way to help disburse stagnation in the body. Stagnation is in sense, a form of stress. It blocks the free flow of your bodies energy system. Pain can manifest in many ways in the body such as physical, mental or even emotionally.  Through a variety of alternative treatments and approaches, I work to unlock the potential of self-healing in each client, often seeing improvements from the very first session. Trust my hands and energy, and trust your ability to heal and allow yourself to feel better than you ever imagined possible. Contact me for more information.
