I have been getting massage therapy and bodywork for about twenty years. At first it was like most people…an occasional treat or indulgence. I lived with chronic pain and felt limited in what I could accomplish in a day because of it. I started to learn more about the body systems, how massage therapy, stretching, chiropractic care, and other modalities of body work can improve not just pain but all functions of the body. I spent years providing amateur massage to my family members and started incorporating some techniques and information into my doula work (if you are looking for doula services please check out my other website: doulaed). When the timing and finances became right I was able to enroll in the 30 week program at Myotherapy College of Utah to become a professionally trained and licensed massage therapist.
During that time I recognized details and elements as a customer that I felt were lacking when I went to get my own bodywork done. I was looking for something that really felt like a luxury experience but was still affordable, and was more than just a relaxation massage–something that combined the long-term effective approach of medical massage that is usually in a more clinical (less pampering) setting with the comforts and treats of a spa. I am so excited to be able to present this combination to my community! The focus of P3 Bodywork is on the needs of the ever-changing body during Pregnancy, Postpartum, and Parenting, but all are welcome. Take care of the mothers and you can change generations!
I have invested heavily into my bodywork education to bring my clients the best comprehensive experience and I will continue to add on new skills and specialities and keep my education current. I have completed the following certifications/trainings/workshops related to bodywork (and many more for my role as a doula!):

A little more about me personally: I am totally sweetand a little bit sassy, organized and observant, reliable, hard-working and generous. I love spending time with people, especially the funny ones that get my wit. I am a mom of five and have an amazing husband and a beautiful home in Heber, Utah, and a life that is full of challenge, joy, love, tragedy, and triumph. My favorite things are Nutella, baking and cake decorating, flowers, cold nights with hot chocolate and hot nights with frozen hot chocolate, antiques, comedy plays, flowers, newborns, cute clothes, ice skating, anything in miniature size, flowers, vintage dresses and heels, decorating, flowers, bubble baths, massages, I Love Lucy, and flowers. Oh, did I mention flowers? If I could make any dream of mine come true it would be to have a garden with an insane amount of flowers so I could go out and make a fresh bouquet every day to surprise someone with. I’m working toward that dream.
