Hi, my name is Hillary. I'm half-Japanese, half-American and I grew up in many different countries around the world. In my previous life, I worked for several years in international development. I fell in love with massage when I was working in Thailand and I used to receive massages regularly for work-related stress and chronic tension headaches. After experiencing the life-changing effects of massage first-hand, I took a Thai massage class in Bangkok and realized that I, myself, could help others experience this relief through my therapeutic touch. I received formal training in therapeutic massage at the College of Wilmington shortly after moving here in 2021.

I am also a mom of two little girls, a passionate environmentalist, and a certified permaculture designer. I dream of one day bringing my interests together and opening my own garden-to-table spa, where I can incorporate native herbs and spices from my garden into my spa products.
I love working one-on-one with people, getting to know them and sharing the amazing benefits of massage with them. I'm so happy to be at Relax, and I'm really looking forward to meeting you and being a part of your wellness journey!

Hillary was so nice and so amazing. I had my first massage here as a birthday gift from my husband, I’m just wondering why I’ve never done this before now! It was the best experience and I will definitely be going back, if I could go every week I absolutely would! Worth every penny!
