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 help to align your posture. I also work with you energetically to help clear out old unnecessary belief patterns. Old belief patterns can hold connective tissue (fascia) in postural patterns your body no longer needs. I will work to make positive changes in your fascia, such as reducing adhesions, stuck together layers of connective tissue. Adhesions may be prohibiting you from moving freely. Clients have told me that they have reduced inflammation, an increased range of motion, feel lighter, have less pain or are pain free, and can sleep better after their sessions. My goal is to have you feel better and empower you. You can take care of your health using simple learned techniques and adapting simple lifestyle changes.
If you have chronic issues, more than one treatment will be necessary to provide a long-term, loftier, looser feeling in your body and to free yourself of chronic postural problems. 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. They are easy to incorporate into your day. I will more than likely use deep breathing and meditation techniques 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 you suggestions to help with your recovery from injury, surgery, or a traumatic event. For example, I might suggest specific foam rolling techniques, stretches, and lifestyle changes. I also may offer an herbal consultation. The suggestions are easy to integrate into your busy day.
I hope to bring you to a peaceful state so your mind and body can repair.
