I offer intuitively detailed massage and energy therapies, drawing from 20 years of clinical experience and ongoing professional training in specialty women’s wellness modalities.
My mission with this work is to help women of all ages achieve more ease in their body, increase healthy body awareness, and learn self care practices that support wellbeing.
My sessions support women in :
– their menses, fertility, pregnancy, postpartum, perimenopause, menopause
– muscle pain and tension, fascial restrictions, soft tissue injuries, soft tissue recovery from falls, whiplash accidents, etc., TMJ, hip and low back and foot pain
– nerve pain due to soft tissue, nervous system tension, PTSD, headaches
– scar tissue from surgeries or injuries (including mastectomies, and hysterectomies)
To do this, I may use a variety of modalities including integrative swedish, lymphatic drainage, intelligent deep tissue massage, trigger point therapy, craniosacral therapy, maya abdominal massage, massage cupping and energy therapies such as shiatsu. You are unique, no two sessions are the same. I will customize your therapy according to your needs that day.
Our time together is a safe space to let down tension, relax, and be nurtured. Sessions are intended to help you not only feel better, but function better over time.
Please have an intention for what you’d like support with in your session. I will listen to you and your body and let that guide me as I work with you.
Appointments average 75 minutes, which includes 5-10 minutes to discuss your needs that day, 60 minutes of therapy, and 5 minutes of follow up.
Sessions are by appointment only. I do not accept walk in requests. If you are a new client, please call or email me so we can discuss what you are looking for and if you are a good candidate for my work.
I offer strictly non-sexual therapeutic massage. I am compliant with state and national guidelines for ethics and professionalism.
Covid 19 has changed the way massage therapists operate. I follow the national, state, and local guildelines recommended for transmission prevention/sterilization/PPE in my profession. Before your first session, we will go over what this different protocol will look like, and you’ll have a chance to ask questions to ensure you feel comfortable. Should there be a mandated shut down of my profession, I will be closed.
Please contact me for current rates.
I use my own handcrafted organic herbal massage creams and oils in our session.
Why does this matter?
Simply put, our skin absorbs what we put on it; within a short amount of time, it’s gone into our bloodstream. This is why if you rub the bottoms of your feet with fresh crushed garlic, you’ll taste it 20 minutes later without having eaten it! If we make choices to eat good food and care for what goes IN our body, it is not a stretch to tend to our choices of what goes ON the body.
Women are exposed to an average of 500 man made chemicals every day… from their cosmetics and soaps, shampoos, and perfumes to air deodorizers, personal and home cleaning supplies. It’s simply unnecessary to do this to ourselves when there are healthier alternatives.
For the time we work together, I want to know that I am using life affirming, organic, nutrient dense creams and natural oils with you… so that I am not adding to your body’s toxic chemical load, or to mine. Folks consistently mention how they love the way these handcrafted creams feel on their skin.
