Deshawn graduated from Lifestyles Learning Center, a private and holistic massage school in Illinois in 2006. The curriculum focused on a mind/body/spirit approach to the field of massage therapy. The intense program offered advanced studies in Touch for Health, a system of balancing posture, attitude and life energy to relieve stress, aches and pains, feel and function better, be more effective, clarify and achieve your goals and enjoy your life.
Due to the holistic nature of her massage training, Deshawn entered the massage field with a solid background and distinct advantage as a therapist who not only is knowledgeable about massage techniques and modalities, but who is able to connect deeply with her clients on a mental, emotional, and spiritual level. Her vibrant, welcoming energy helps to immediately set her clients at ease so they are better able to relax and really enjoy all the benefits massage has to offer. Listening intently and following through with a treatment plan specifically designed for each individual is Deshawn's greatest skill.
Deshawn has found much success in working with clients who suffer from chronic stress, chronic pain, and depression. Her overwhelmingly joyful energy, along with her advanced knowledge of various massage techniques including hot stone therapy, cupping, deep tissue, and therapeutic sports massage has garnered her a reputation as one of the best massage therapists in the area.
