Shawn's athletic background gave her the desire to better understand the body and spirit. That led her to learn massage therapy at the Desert Institute of the Healing Arts. She then expanded her massage experience by working in spa facilities, health clubs and resorts. Over the past two decades, Shawn has continued her work and education to better her skills. She also expanded Body Benefits services to provide a mobile massage therapy option.
Shawn completed her certification in Paul St. John's Neuromuscular Therapy in 2000. In addition to these NMT skills she specializes in deep tissue and focus work. She works with the intention of treating the fascia, muscle tissues and their injuries. Shawn has kept NMT a primary focus in her practice. This brings her more of both challenge and reward when it comes to giving relief to those looking for long-term pain management.

I am experienced in treating clients with Developmental Disabilities such as Autism and Cerebral Palsy. I am versed in billing third party support for clients with account beneficiaries. I am trained in Medical Massage, Cranio-Sacral Therapy , Sports and Swedish Massage.
I graduated from the Soma Institute National school of clinical massage therapy in November 2001. My specialties include swedish, deep tissue, reflexology, clinical, sports, and trigger point massage. I have worked in a variety of settings and find much passion and fulfillment knowing I have made a client feel better either through relaxation or pain relief. My goal is to bring the healing aspects of massage to as many people as possible and to continue to educate clients on the benefits of regular massage on the body and mind. I am always interested in reading about new massage research and taking continuing education to broaden my skillset. Some of my other interests are going to concerts, walking in nature, travel, and helping people in any way i can.
