Greetings! Welcome to my website! My name is Eileen Monaghan. I moved to the Hampton Roads area in 2002 from New York City. I attended the Fuller School of Massage soon after and graduated in February 2004. I always wanted a career that would allow me to work with people and found Massage Therapy to be a perfect fit. I am a lifelong student; always looking for another class to take to further hone my skills and meet new and interesting people who share my passion for massage.
I also share my love for massage by teaching at the Fuller School of Massage. I currently teach the Prenatal, and Oncology Massage classes.
I will always listen to what you want first and foremost and tailor your session to your needs. I believe massage is a partnership between the client and therapist; each with an important function. I strive to be a catalyst for change.
I allow plenty of time in between appointments so you do not feel rushed.
