Massage therapy is not a luxury but an important part of a healthy lifestyle. Bringing the body into better alignment allows you to move, sit and sleep without the stress of nagging pain, increasing efficiency in work and play. In my practice, your massage is just that - your massage, responsive to you and your body. I am a graduate of the Brian Utting School of Massage and the Vodder School International and a lifelong learner, embracing continuing education as a means of expanding my skills.

I have two ideal clients. The first is someone managing swelling either pre or post surgery or some other reason. These client's goals are to bring the swelling down! As well as decreasing pain, bruising and supporting their healing and increasing their range of motion. They want speedy results so they can return to their daily activities and vibrant living. My second ideal client is seeking to loosen up tight muscles or a tight body. Their issues are headaches, neck pain and ache, sore shoulders, limited movement, low back pain, leg and arm pain. They want relief and they want it quickly without incurring additional pain.

Practicing with gratefulness and delight since 1988, I meet each person with respect, curiosity and appreciation. I bring a depth of presence and a wide range of skills to each session which I tailor to the individual's needs and goals. Whether we focus on relaxation, injury treatment, stress reduction, increasing awareness, maintenance, personal exploration or inquiry into body symptoms, or a combination of any of the above, I aim for the individual to leave the session feeling in some way better than when they arrived.
