Hello and welcome to BLTM, (Barnegat Light Therapeutic Massage). Proudly serving South Jersey for over 20 years. Graduating from Lady of Lourdes Institute of Wholistic Healing School program back in 2000. I offer myofascial release, cranio-sacral therapy, epat, life coaching, lifeline technique in addition to massage, to all those who are ready to receive healing and change in their life.
I found my passion for being of service with the fascination of the fascia system throughout the body. I studied with John Barnes, PT, an authority, lecturer, author, and teacher of the highest caliber in Myofascial Release. I also studied with the late Dr. John Upledger, leader, innovator, teacher where I learned cranio-sacral therapy. For the longest time my practice focused on myofascial release and dealing with the physical symptoms created by pain, inflammation, and trauma. The approach is extremely effective and clients report feeling better. However, time and time again I felt a sense that something was not complete, as the fascia was released, there is more… Back in 2010 a colleague of mine introduced me to the Lifeline Technique®. A pioneer of his time, Dr. Darren Weissman developed The LifeLine Technique® as an integrative system for mastering the subconscious mind. To activate positive, rapid, and lasting transformation, in your thoughts, behavior, and your body’s natural ability to heal. During 2020, like everyone, it was a challenge, and we had the opportunity to learn more and shift our focus deeper. I took the time to attain another certification for life coaching. Martha Beck has been someone I have read and followed for many years. Her Wayfinder life coach training was an eighteen-month process that was rigorous yet rewarding. I received my certification in 2021 and have begun to build the life coaching aspect of the business. Life coaching is a great addition to an already deep practice. During these times I was also trained in the use of epat to deepen my myofascial work. This sound wave device has added much healing to my clients, for many it has been a “game changer”. Athletes, those with chronic pain, post-surgery, plantar fasciitis, tennis elbow, scars, all benefit from this added treatment. I seem to refer to epat as myofascial or myself on “steroids”, when you experience a session, you will understand the reference. The results have been transforming and nothing short of amazing.
Along with all the hands-on services we also have added a juice and smoothie bar, Lighthouse Juice Bar. When clients finish their session, they can go out to our takeout service and enjoy an organic juice, smoothie or bowl. It’s a delicious way to end their session and fuel their body.
I continue to learn, grow and evolve by showing up every day and doing my best. If you are ready to begin or continue your journey, I am available to assist from wherever you are in your healing process.
Welcome to BLTM. I bring a wealth of healing, knowledge, and calm to BLTM. I have trained locally at Body In mind, located in Toms River. Trained in massage and additional techniques like cupping, epat and lymph drainage to deepen the clients experience and healing. I find myself always yearning for more knowledge. I continue to seek education to deepen my knowledge base and educate my hands to find restriction and adhesions so that the clients can find relief throughout their session. I originally started my practice a bit north of LBI in a small town but felt the need to be down at the beach bringing healing to both myself, my family and all those that I serve. When my colleague and friend told me of her vision to create a healing and wellness studio in Barnegat Light, I was all in. It was a big undertaking, but I was used to big projects coming from big chain retail manager and regional bosses always expecting more of everything from my stores. I always rose to the occasions and for over twenty years my stores were always top performers. My experience owning and operating a small deli for ten years also taught me to organize, prioritize and know my customer base. These skills came in very handy to help create the studio along with the addition of the juice bar. In addition to my technical skills and business knowledge I was very drawn to the modality of lymph drainage. The thought of being able to clear our lymph system with light hands-on technique to bring balance and wellness to people going through traumatic life challenges, intrigued me. I started the journey of learning lymph drainage back in 2020 when the world shut down. I added this to the practice and have found success and satisfaction helping those clients that experience swelling or discomfort from any illness that blocks the lymphatic system. In addition, we also have added epat to the office. This machine produces sound waves and is directly applied to the area of discomfort which adds additional healing to the clients.
Most of my clients come for relaxation and a bit of tension relief whether it be neck, back or shoulders. However, having epat, cupping and lymph drainage as added modalities it has helped many clients move through some tough phases of their life. I will continue to educate myself and keep adding knowledge and experience to bring to my clients. This is such a great place, and I am happy to be here serving all who seek my service.
