Mercedes has a sincere passion for helping others, which is what led her to become a Massage Therapist. Using a holisitic approach, she takes the time to understand what each individual's needs are. Through doing this she is able to provide a customized treatment to get to the root cause of the issue. Crainiosacral Therapy (a gentle, full body technique) is her preferred modality to use during treatment, though she is able to offer many different techniques as well. She is very passionate about empowering, educating, and assisting her patients to understand the body better. This allows her patients the space to be able to move into the future with more knowledge and support within themselves.
An eternal student, Mercedes is always seeking ways to grow and to expand her knowledge base. When she is not at the clinic, she is most likely at a course with her fiance, reading a book, or even meditating.
