hands

I believe in each person’s ability to return to wholeness and clarity.

I offer a combination of techniques, including traditional swedish massage, myofascial release, trigger point therapy, trager, and reflexology.

My practice is varied: from chefs to athletes, from office workers to pregnant women. I also work with folks struggling with depression, anxiety, PTSD, and grief. I help people feel more comfortable in their bodies; I help people heal themselves.

Working Together

At the beginning of each session, I like to check in with each client to discuss treatment goals. This way, we can be sure that the appointment fully serves your needs.

There are several types of formats, wherein we can work on a full body massage, a specific problem area, or a combination of both. In general, I tend to focus on one or two body areas, accessing deeper muscles and releasing fascial restrictions.

I encourage clients to be actively involved in their own treatment care. Breathing, learning, and observing are important aspects of every massage. Focusing on your breathing has an incredible ability to increase awareness, increase relaxation, and help let go of pain.

In order for clients to continue their own self care at home, I often offer stretches, exercises or practices that will be helpful to add to your personal routine. I have an excellent network of other health care practitioners in the area that I can refer you to, if need be. 

Swedish Massage and General Tissue Relaxation

Swedish Massage and General Tissue Relaxation

My techniques soften and relax tissues, as I tend to focus on specific areas of tension. I also use kneading and friction, which calm the nervous system, relax muscles, and increase the circulation of blood and lymph.

Deep Tissue Massage

Deep Tissue Massage

I also perform a deep tissue massage, using myofascial release techniques for a deep and restorative experience. I use slow strokes and firm pressure to release chronic holding patterns, which allow for healing to take place at a structural level. Although my work can be very deep, I have learned over my years in practice that a tremendous amount of change can occur with little or no force.

Mind-body Therapy

Mind-body Therapy

We will use a combination of touch and talk to create a deeper connection with your internal experience. I will act as a guide to help you access your innate wisdom and unconscious belief systems. Shifts happen when you begin to become aware of this information. We will use breath  and mindfulness techniques to bring present moment awareness.
