CERTIFIED MASSAGE THERAPIST
Sessions range from light energy work to deep tissue techniques and stretching – integrating Swedish, deep tissue, sports massage, myofascial release, trigger points, active/passive stretching, visceral massage, Craniosacral therapy, Polarity, somatic coaching, Reiki, Jin Shin Jyutsu (acupressure), reflexology, tuning forks, aromatherapy and passive joint mobilization techniques. I also practice pre/post natal pregnancy massage, hot stone massage, body wraps and scrubs. I appreciate working with clients regularly and witnessing their progress through the healing process.
I began exploring energy work with Reiki in 1999. In 2010 I graduated from the Institute of Psycho-Structural Balancing (IPSB), studying holistic massage therapy; receiving a strong grounding in anatomy and body-mind awareness. I began studying Craniosacral and Polarity therapy at the Life Energy Institute in 2015. I now also offer distance sessions via video call.
Massage and energy work is a powerful combination that allows healing on multiple levels. The lightest touch can work the deepest, from the inside out, while “deep tissue” work helps open the physical pathways for energy movement.
I previously worked assisting elderly with mental and physical disabilities. I also served on the board of an environmental non-profit. I enjoy learning about wild edible and medicinal plants. I make tinctures, herb-infused oils and salves which I use in sessions. I practice yoga and qigong and enjoy sailing and kayaking.
