I Specialize in a range of Post Surgical Lymphatic Drainage for Plastic Surgery such as Tummy Tuck, Liposuction, BBL, Breast Augmentation and Breast Reduction Surgery. After Surgery you retain a lot of fluid that can be uncomfortable and painful, that can cause a range of problems like Fibrosis. After Surgery, patients didn’t get the results they wanted. We have other options for patients like ultrasonic cavitation that can help slim you the way you’ve always wanted.

Hi, my name is Bella. I got my license from Eastern Virginia Career College in their 750-hour medical massage program. Massage therapy has always been something I knew I wanted to pursue and had a natural talent for.
Massage has been my go-to for constant self-care, whether it’s for physical pain or de-stressing. Massage can help with anxiety and the overall quieting of the mind when used to engage the parasympathetic nervous system through relaxing modalities like Swedish and therapeutic massage.
Medical massage is great for any aches and pains you may feel through the daily use of your body, from previous injuries to surgeries to any other bodily trauma. These modalities include deep tissue, sports, cupping, and gua sha massage. My massage technique is a balance between relaxation and medical modalities because I always want my clients to relax while still receiving the treatment they need.
Most importantly, I always want a tailored treatment plan for each client.
I’m so thankful to share my passion with you and help retrain your body to function at its optimal level. I’m constantly looking to connect with my clients and make them feel seen, heard, and physically well.

Andrew here! I graduated from EVCC’s (Eastern Virginia Career College) medical massage program in 2016. Since then, I have practiced in both chiropractic and spa settings. Fortunately, I have been able to stand out due to my drive to deliver treatment that makes a difference.
Massage is a beneficial treatment in almost every case, and almost everyone can receive it. When I perform massage, my focus is on joint function, articulation, and mobility. Trigger points, fascial adhesion, scar tissue, and painful stubbornness can be smoothly released via passive joint manipulation. By stabilizing and supporting joints, the soft tissue can be made passive and non-resistant to manual release. You really feel it go!
Every session is meant to improve my client’s quality of life and aid the performance of routine activities once they are off the table. To that end, I most enjoy the opportunity to work with clients who need treatment for pain management; recovery from chronic and acute sprains and strains. We all carry some kind of repetitive use overload in our bodies. It is my endeavor to reduce the frequency and severity of such issues.
