Works of Heart Massage Therapy by Victoria

Every massage begins with compassionate listening...listening both to what you say as well as what your body is telling me.

My formal training in therapeutic massage and Reiki occurred seven years ago, in Charleston SC, and I have been developing my intuitive skills everyday since then. In order to be truly helpful and beneficial to you, I recognize that no two sessions can be identical whether you have been coming to me for seven years or are experiencing massage for the first time. You can be confident that your well-being, in the present moment, is my priority while you are on my table.

I find massage therapy to be extremely gratifying. By choosing to come to me you are choosing to sincerely be good to yourself. It is my profound honor to assist you by providing the physical, spiritual and emotional support you need to nurture yourself.


"I am so full of joy and am savoring all of the beautiful energy I have been privileged to luxuriate in. You, Hawk and this sacred space that you have created, both physically and energetically,

is truly a place of healing. You both are doing the work you

are meant to do." - Marsha

"Your warmth, wisdom, and welcoming me into your home for

my first Shamanic Journeying experience helped me understand 

a new path. It was special and I am forever grateful.

Thank you dear Ayal!" - Kirsten

  " I can't thank you enough for walking with me on this journey -

     you have helped me make some huge shifts in my life!" - Val
