Certified Therapeutic Bodyworks offers Swedish massage, integrated massage, hot stone massage, prenatal massage and Reiki. I also offer youth massage for ages 12 and under.

Massages are available for one hour, 90 minutes or two hours.

I use all natural products at my place.

I also mix the lotion that I use on my clients from local beeswax, coconut oil, olive oil and vitamin E oil.

I offer a discount of 10 percent to police officers, teachers, military personal and firefighters.

A Swedish massage is done with very light pressure.

My basic massage is the integrated massage, which is also very relaxing, but we use more pressure to break up the knots and tensions people are holding.

Hot stone is an integrated massage with warm stones worked into the session.

Reiki is an energy healing. It doesn't require hands on at all. The client lies fully clothed on top of a blanket.

A youth massage is also a light-pressure massage, a shorter session of 45 minutes since their attention span is shorter. A parent must accompany them.

Prenatal massage is for anyone in their second trimester of pregnancy. A light touch relieves some of the pressure on their body.

I'm available seven days a week, by appointment only.

Entry: I'd had a desire to work in massage for a long time. I bought a table and went to Cumberland County College for training. After graduating, I went to work at Utopia Salon & Spa in Vineland.

The next person I worked for was closing her business, so I decided to start working for myself.

The future: I'd like to add Ashiatsu, canine massage and sports massage. I hope soon to market my lotion for sale, but for now I just use it on clients.

I have a special for anyone who has never had a session with me, $49.94 for any one-hour massage they choose.
