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 and the like. Some 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. And, some 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 massage school together, we share the same philosophy when it comes to our clients. We both are committed to providing you with the best session we can offer. We are also compassionate about our profession and believe in the importance of mentoring and teaching the next generation of therapists.
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.
