I created Calliope Massage Studio in 2015 as a body positive, queer friendly, trans* affirming, trauma informed practice.
After 16 years in the hospitality industry, the idea of creating an experience designed around the specific needs of a client came as second nature. My desire for an evidence based practice led to extensive study about the science behind the pain experience.
Now, 7 years later, I'm moving away from working directly with clients. The best projects evolve. A business degree, experience running two successful small businesses, and a global pandemic inspired me to focus on how I can help support other touch-based businesses in becoming trauma informed.
