About Me

I am a Licensed Massage Therapist practicing actively in Virginia, and a certified instructor for Claire Marie Miller in Nurturing the Mother®: Pregnancy and Postpartum Massage. I am also an experienced birth doula, certified by DONA International. Since I embarked on my career in the healing arts, I have worked with hundreds of individuals and growing families. 


In my practice, I see a lot of expecting mothers for prenatal and postpartum massage, but I also have a range of clients seeking pain management, stress relief, range of motion improvement, and recovery from illness/injury. I am generally described as a deep tissue therapist, although I firmly believe that deep work does not have to be painful.


I tailor each massage to my client’s needs, using a variety of techniques including Deep Tissue, Myofascial Release, Swedish, Acupressure, and Stretching.  I would welcome the chance to work with you to address whatever issues trouble you!

Deep Tissue Massage

Deep tissue massage involves strong pressure and slow moving strokes designed to penetrate through multiple layers of tissue. Many people find deep work essential to helping them overcome stress-related pain and restricted range of motion. Clients often feel relief even after the first session, and over time they experience lasting improvement in their well-being. I find that many of my clients benefit from a combination of deep tissue work and deep, passive stretching, which restores balance to the body and ease of motion.

Whitney was great deep tissue massage therapist.  She cared for my wellness and is very deliberate with how she breaks down knots while helping to relieve your pain and in my case, severe migraines.  I will definitely be going back to see her.  She’s excellent!

If you need significant tissue, tendon, or muscle work done, Whitney … is your person!  She has the anatomy knowledge and the strength to target work, unlike any massage therapist I’ve ever had.

Whitney is an excellent masseuse.  She worked on several smaller muscles around the neck and shoulders that no other masseuse had worked on; that made a big difference.  I appreciate her skill in applying strong pressure when she works on back muscles.  She is a great asset…
