Tammy graduated from the Great Lakes Institute of Technology in Erie, Pennsylvania and has been offering intuitive, deep tissue, pain relieving, and function improving massage since the fall of 2000. She has since taken courses on pregnancy massage, myofascial release, neuromuscular therapy, essential oils, META MVMT exercise theory, health coaching from the IIN (Institute for Integrative Nutrition), and wellness counseling from ECornell. She is also currently studying herbalism with Aviva Romm.
The practice of Massage has been life changing for Tammy’s own experience of her body; healing from illness, accidents, and injury in a sustainable manner while creating more health as she went along. Tammy is skilled at discovering the appropriate approaches to release what no longer serves in the muscles through a combination of Trigger Point, Myofascial Release, Neuromuscular & Craniosacral approaches. She also supports the client’s experience of relaxation, by listening to the needs expressed and assessing the feedback the body communicates while in session.
Tammy has spent the last 20 years studying health and wellness, seeking ways to improve the experience we have of our bodies, through education that can impact the choices we make each day. She is currently studying Herbalism to discover even more ways to support the body through natural means. Tammy also offers one-on-one Holistic Food, Movement, & Wellness Coaching towards that goal, specializing in perimenopausal and menopausal women at her online practice, Queen City Holistic Wellness.
She is an avid hiker, loves photographing nature, dancing like there’s no one watching, singing & playing her ukulele, gardening, tea & potion making, creating krauts and kombucha while finding the everyday magic that life provides.
“We are in the presence of a massage Goddess. Tammy has the hands of a healer. I came in for neuralgia pain in my neck due to some of the most intense psychosomatic stress I’ve ever experienced. On top of that, I’ve been dealing with a hamstring injury that I’ve been trying to rehab and heal for almost two years now with very slow headway. I came to Tammy and told her about all my aches and pains which also included an old knee injury that flares up from time to time. After just 4 sessions with her, I have full mobility in my hamstring again, zero neuralgia pain, and much better activation in the muscles around my knee pain.”
