Marissa finds giving massage almost as relaxing as receiving it. She has a deep respect for the need to balance activity with rest to allow the body time to heal and return to wellness.
Marissa is a nationally certified massage therapist licensed to practice massage in Maryland and is a member of the Associated Bodywork & Massage Professionals. She is also a certified Reiki practitioner.
Prior to graduating from Central Maryland School of Massage, Marissa was a certified personal trainer. She discovered massage at a post-marathon event. The massage helped her recover more quickly than anything she’d been practicing, it even helped her to become more flexible and relieve tight muscles that were hindering her speed and form.
Marissa is a US Navy veteran who loves spending time with her children. Her down time is spent in the gym, at the ball field, on the courts and in the kitchen. She enjoys playing outside with her dog, running and massage as a way to relax.
