Hi Lee!  I happened to be doing email (and posting kind of a rant on this site!) when I got an email that you had commented on the Lyme Disease thread.

I'm going to send you an email shortly with info.  If I can figure out how to do that!  I'm not savvy with these social media sites...

Hi Lee!

What's my massage like? Good question ;) It really depends on what the clients want. I'm big on communication. The modalities I perform the most are Swedish, deep tissue, myofascial release and trigger point therapy. I'm an outcall MT so no great and wonderful 'spa treatments' here ;)

Have a great day and a happy Thanksgiving tomorrow!
