Mia is a Registered Massage Therapist with 20+ years of practice experience. Her approach is both intuitive and educated and her clients rave about her ability to help them heal from injuries, release stress and strain and get back to feeling good and living life.
Mia is fully certified as a Matrix Repatterning Practitioner using the Specialized Techniques to treat conditions such as CONCUSSIONS, back, neck and shoulder pain, carpal tunnel syndrome, hip, knee and ankle pain, headaches, as well as numerous other functional conditions
Certified Matrix Repatterning Practitioners are able to precisely locate the source of the problem (primary restrictions), due to an electronic change in the cell structure, which accompanies the injury. Once this is identified, treatment, using gentle manual pressure is used to encourage the structures contributing to the condition, to return to a normal state of tone. By systematically releasing all of the layers of injury, which have accumulated over a lifetime, Matrix Repatterning can allow the entire body to be restored (repatterned) to optimal, pain-free function.
Mia is ALSO fully certified in RAPID NeuroFascial Reset, a treatment technique that combines precisely directed tension and compression with specific passive and active movements that stimulate the nervous system to reduce pain and restore normal function to muscles, fascia, tendons, ligaments and nerves.
Using both techniques, Mia can successfully treat conditions from sciatica, low back pain, headaches, shoulder injuries, fibromyalgia, TMJ, gout, knee injuries, whiplash, chronic fatigue, depression, hormone balancing, chronic pain, shoulder injuries, prenatal & postnatal and much more - she is here to help you regain your health, mobility and ultimately the health and well being you deserve.

Rapid NeuroFascial Reset: As of November 2018, Mia is now a fully certified RAPID Neurofascial Release Specialist.
RAPID NeuroFascial Reset, is a new soft tissue, movement-based therapeutic technique that addresses the central nervous systems role in alleviating tension and restrictions within muscles, tendons, ligaments, fascia and nerves.
Some of the conditions that can be quickly resolved with RAPID-NFR include: headaches /migraines, back pain, carpal tunnel syndrome, shin splints, shoulder pain, sciatica, plantar fasciitis, knee problems, tennis/ golfers elbow, whiplash, TMJ, frozen shoulder, bursitis, bunions and arthritic joints.
What is a treatment like?
Every session is actually a combination of examination and treatment. The RAPID provider uses his or her hands to evaluate the texture, tightness and movement of muscles, fascia, tendons, ligaments and nerves. Hypersensitive areas are treated by combining precisely directed tension with very specific patient movements.
RAPID sessions may be uncomfortable during the movement phase of the treatment. This occurs as the neurological system is being stimulated to restore normal function.
Let me just say, I truly do love what I do and who I serve 💓
"Any time I was feeling out of my own space, she would bring me back together"
I originally started going to Mia when she invited me to come try out her services for my blog. I was hooked ever since. Any time I was feeling out of my own space, she would bring me back together - making me feel relaxed and refreshed.

"If you haven't yet experienced Mia's healing abilities, you don't know what your missing."
The moment you walk into Mia's "office" you'll feel your troubles melting away. She omits positive energy, her calm quiet disposition puts you at ease immediately. Mia uses her strength and her knowledge to heal the body as a whole; mind, body and soul. She has been a miracle worker for me, I leave feeling totally rejuvenated. If you haven't yet experienced Mia's healing abilities, you don't know what your missing. ~Lexie B.
"Mia is at the top of the list."
Mia is an exceptional massage therapist. I have been to many massage therapists over the years, and - in terms of skill, professionalism, and overall approach - Mia is at the top of the list. ~ Joel Stoddart
"She's effective, kind, intuitive."
I have a troublesome lower back that Mia has managed to both soothe and strengthen. When she works on my feet, I relax completely, almost dozing off. She's effective, kind, intuitive. ~ Hilary Graham
"Her style and technique are top notch, and very effective."
I would highly recommend Mia as a massage therapist. Her style and technique are top notch, and very effective. As a nurse I am on my feet for 12hr and frequently turning and twisting my back; Mia has been great with working me to both directly ease the cause of pain/strain, but to also maintain the whole body in a holistic manner. ~Mike K.
"Mia is a very gifted healer."
