Thanks for taking your coffee break at
The Stretch Cafe

Here's What's Brewing
We create short videos for the office worker that focus on beneficial stretches they can do throughout the day.
Sitting for long periods of time can cause musculoskeletal disorders (MSD) such as muscle tension and pain, weak core stabilizers and tight joints. Office workers have a high risk of repetitive motion injuries like tendonitis, trigger finger and carpal tunnel syndrome. So, we've designed our stretches to help decrease these hazards.
Benefits of Stretch
Consistent stretching reduces musculoskeletal disorders, Repetitive motion syndrome, headaches and injury.
Stretching increases blood flow throughout the body to supply nutrients to joints and soft tissues. It also increases flexibility and posture.
Just a few minutes of stretch can decrease stress and fatigue, improve mood and boost productivity and efficiency.
A Whole Latte Stretches
Every Monday morning, in time for your coffee break, we'll drop a new video that focuses on a specific trouble spot.
All stretches can be done in a limited space: work-from-home station, cubicle, office, classroom. No excuses.

For over 20 years I was a massage therapist in a corporate setting. I established that business for two reasons. The first was to make massage an affordable necessity for maintaining wellness to people who might have seen it as a luxury. The second was to help, in my way, support a better/work life balance by coming on site, to them, on their coffee break. As Covid changed the work force dynamics, bringing forth all things virtual, my business has morphed. My passion to help others feel good, be less tense and reduce stress, remains the same. My goal is to continue to bring you videos with stretching techniques that will help you improve your well-being so you can discover the joy of a healthy, pain free, stress-free life.
I am excited to announce that I am finishing up my Health Coaching Certification and will make individual and group health coaching services available virtually!
For fun, I love hiking, mountain biking, practicing yoga, trying new foods, enjoying a hot cup of coffee on a cold morning, reading, creating beautiful things and exploring the US with my husband in our RV.
