About Solace Massage Therapy
noun 1. alleviation of distress or discomfort.
verb 2. the act of consoling in time of difficulty, grief or pain.
When I began thinking about names for my massage practice, time and time again, I kept coming back to the word “solace.” I like that it means to bring comfort because that is exactly what I strive to do with every person that I am fortunate to work with.
Each session is as individual as each client. Some people are looking for relief from pain stemming from injuries, chronic pain, headaches, TMJ dysfunction, and the like. Others want a massage for relaxation. Some come to Solace seeking Craniosacral Therapy and the healing that can occur from headaches, vertigo, fibromyalgia, and other symptoms. Others may come seeking Reiki healing on all levels…mind, body, and spirit.
In 2017, I welcomed Collette Wilson, LMT, into my practice. Collette and I not only graduated from massage school together, but we also share the same philosophy when it comes to our clients. We are committed to providing you with the best session we can offer. In addition, we are tremendously compassionate about our profession and believe in the importance of mentoring and teaching the next generation of therapists.
In 2023, we were fortunate to add Courtney Harvey, LMT, to our practice. Along with expertise in deep tissue, prenatal and Swedish massage, Courtney also brings experience in Vedic Thai massage, Himalayan Salt Stone massage, Craniosacral Therapy, and Reiki.
We look forward to working with you and thank you for choosing Solace Massage Therapy.

My journey into the world of massage began when I was about eight years old. My father, a factory worker, would often come home complaining of pain in his legs and feet. Not liking to see anyone in pain, I would offer to rub his feet. He never failed to tell me how strong my hands were and one day told me that I should be a masseuse when I grew up. At that time, I didn’t know what a masseuse or a massage therapist was, but I did know that I loved being able to help him and found great joy in knowing that my little hands helped to take his pain away.

Passionate. If one word can describe a person, Collette Wilson would be described as passionate. She is passionate about the welfare of her clients; she is passionate about her chosen profession; she is passionate about health.

The art of massage and bodywork has impacted me in profound ways throughout my life. Beginning with my grandmother giving me acupressure sessions at a very early age. I remember feeling such a blissful sensation and detachment from the world.
