Learning how to BE in your own body is what massage is all about. I am passionate about healthy lifestyles that incorporate massage in your health care, training, and recovery. I have been practicing for more than 17 years and part of the Tacoma Center YMCA family. I graduated from Ashmead College in Seattle and quickly ventured on my own, establishing my business, BeHive Massage at the YMCA.

I specialize in working with athletes of all levels, and can tailor your massage to exaclty what your body needs. My experience has led me to working at the 2016 Olympic Trials for Track and Field and it was incredible! I look forward to working with you in our newely remodeled space within the Tacoma Center YMCA.

Dan - P

My name is Dan and I am a recent graduate of Alexander School of Natural Therapeutics. I became interested in massage therapy while I was recovering from a back injury. I was hobbling around on a cane half of the time and doctors were pushing drugs and surgery. Massage and chiropractic sorted me out and was the passion I found in natural health care. 

I am a Reiki practioner and bring this energy to all of my body work. A balanced, healthy lifestyle that includes body work as part of one's self care leads to an overall happier, more productive life. 

My interests include hiking, running, kayaking, reading and relaxing with my family.

Laura Lee - P

My name is Laura Lee and I graduated from Alexandar School of Natural Therapeutics in Tacoma in 2016. There, I was able to learn a variety of massage while always maintaining a focus on full body healing in a holistic manner. 

My style is a blend of calming Swedish massage technique with depper and more intense Trigger Point Therapy with Myofascial Release Technique sprinkled in throughout the session. I truly believe this approach optimizes results of pain management and relaxation. This is my main goal every single session. 

I have extended my studies after graduating from Alexandar School of Natural Therapeutics to include Thai Massage and Manual Lymphatic Drainage. I plan to continue learning as many techniques as possible so I can best treat  and relax all types of people from all walks of life. 

The power of touch is such an amazing thing and is a gift I plan on sharing for a long time to come!
