Valence Massage in Springfield, MO


Yes, I am still open! (Sort of)

Due to the odd combination of the global pandemic, and the beginning of graduate school, Valence Massage has changed dramatically. I will be attending (virtually for now) full time grad school for my Doctor of Physical Therapy degree starting in late May of 2020 and ending May of 2023! In the meantime, I am staying open to existing clients and referrals only. For now, my hours are on Saturdays only and subject to change based on my study/home-life needs. I will try to keep up as best I can, so wish me luck!

Online scheduling is disabled for now, so email me or leave me a voicemail if you'd like to get in to see me. slots are very limited and first come, first serve. Thanks everyone!
