Hello, and welcome! I am a Board Certified, State Licensed Massage Therapist offering over 20 years of massage and bodywork experience. I'm always taking classes and love using new techniques to help you relax, repair, and rejuvenate.
Would you like to take steps to return to a pain-free, active lifestyle? Two of the therapies I specialize in are CranioSacral and Myofascial Release. These massage therapies allow me to work both structurally and energetically. I will work to calm your nervous system, elongate your muscular and connective tissue (fascia), and increase the circulation in your body. Poor circulation may be causing you both physical and emotional stress. Adhesions, or stuck tissue, may be prohibiting you from moving freely. Clients have told me that they have an increased range of motion, feel lighter, have less pain or are pain free, and can sleep better after their sessions.
If you have chronic issues, more than one treatment may be necessary to provide a long-term, loftier, looser feeling in your body and to free yourself of chronic structural problems. Chronic problems do not happen overnight. Please take care of yourself and take some time to help your body repair by booking your initial session now.
Other modalities that I may integrate:
Deep breathing and meditation techniques to calm the nervous system are essential to help the body relax and may be used in your session to help reduce your stress and therefore bring your body into state of repair.
My love for herbs and nature lead me to Vermont to study herbal energetics, the roots of shamanism, plant spirit medicine, and to take an herbal apprenticeship program. If you would like to work with the energetics or spirit of the plants, incorporate prayer, and use totems, we can incorporate these vibrational healing techniques into your session. I find these techniques deeply calming to the nervous system, therefore repairing to the body and mind.
After your session, I may offer "homework" to help with your recovery from injury, surgery, or a traumatic event. For example, I might suggest foam rolling techniques, stretches, and lifestyle changes. The homework is easy to integrate into your busy day.
I hope to bring you to a peaceful state so your mind and body can repair.
