~About Us~

Our highly trained and experienced massage therapists realize that no two bodies are the same so we invite you to try our signature massage, the Custom Therapeutic Massage. Every therapy service, every session can be customized to meet your specific needs. What sets us apart from the rest? Aside from treating each client individually by really listening to their needs, here at UKAM, caring, educated, gifted and intuitive therapists make all the difference. As a client, you can rest assure that you will not be rushed on and off the table as we space out appointments appropriately to allow time to consult with you before each session, complete your full session (if you arrive on time) and even allow some time in the end for you to relax before getting up. We offer a variety of massage lengths ranging from 30 minutes to 120 minutes. Our goal is not to see how many clients we can squeeze onto the schedule each day but to simply help all of our clients achieve the results desired through therapeutic touch and quality bodywork.

In 2006 I started U-Knead-A Massage at a small two room studio in the back of a warehouse. It was small but it was all mine. I was grateful and excited to embark on a journey that has been the best years of my life. Continuously growing, we currently have three therapists and are always looking for like minded therapists to join the "UKAM Healing Team". My overall vision is to create a truly unique healing environment.

I have and unquenchable thirst for knowledge. Over the last 14 years I have had the pleasure to study with true geniuses in their craft like, John Barnes, completing 5 out of 10 John F Barnes Myofascial Release approach seminars. Some of the other Masters of  Massage include, Aaron Mates, Margie Meshew, Shamaya Cha, Jim Cain, Michelle Manna, and my Thai teachers Therdchai Chumphoopong his mother Mum and brother Mos, Pichest Boonthumme and many more. Each of them taught me something invaluable about myself and the best ways to help heal my fellow man through therapeutic touch. "Healing Through Therapeutic Touch"
