I'm a licensed massage therapist practicing Structural Integration and somatic bodywork. Integrating heart and science into every session, I believe that bodywork, often pursued in relief of pain, can also improve our relationship with our bodies and deepen our experience in the world around us. I bring an awareness of the educational, experiential process of receiving bodywork, making lasting change through awareness and embodiment, in addition to very effective technique. Originally from New York, I trained at The Swedish Institute in New York City (a 1226-hour program) and at IPSB in San Diego.

I've had a Manual Therapy healing practice for 35 years. I consistently observe that the path to healing arises from a deep listening & from attaining balance & flow between the physical, emotional & spiritual aspects of our being. My interest in Holistic Health Care began when I put myself through University & Graduate school working as a Massage Therapist. At that same time, from an inspired vision, I designed, developed, & taught a program on Therapeutic Touch for the elderly at the Desert Institute for the Healing Arts. I hold MA Certification in Gerontology, BA in French Literature & Dance, & BA in Interdisciplinary Studies: Pre Med, Life Sciences & Humanities.

I love helping people who have pain that they may have even lost hope of healing from. I work on releasing fascial adhesions which do not show up on x-rays, MRIs or CT scans. Often it causes mysterious pain that is elusive to track down with normal diagnostic tests in the medical world. But when I work with my client to restore healthy function to their fascia, it finally stops exerting 2,000 pounds of pressure per square inch on pain sensitive structures. This gives my clients hope, freedom from pain they feared was permanent, and restores range of motion and proper function.

Relaxing muscles and aligning structure creates a very nurturing and effective massage. Your massage is designed for you. A connective tissue massage or swed-thai massage can work out many kinks. The micro current device works best to lessen or relieve acute pain. Functional stretches are a great way to help you feel good or better between treatments. I travel to your home or office with my massage table and it is very convenient. Call for your free consultation! A package of 3 is available.

Who can practice massage in Palo Alto?
Most states have licensing requirements that must be met before a practitioner (a 'masseuse' or 'masseur') can use the title 'Massage Therapist', and some states require a license to practice any form of massage. Licensed Massage Therapists in Palo Alto have obtained the highest level of authentication. They must complete academic coursework in anatomy and physiology, as well as on the application of massage and bodywork, business and ethics, and specialized massage techniques. The Palo Alto LMT must then pass a certification exam.
What are the benefits of Palo Alto massage?
Clients use massage in Palo Alto because it relieves pain from muscle aches and sprains, muscle injuries and other causes of pain. It reduces stress and helps clients relax, and can decrease feelings of anxiety and depression by stimulating the release of endorphins and serotonin. Massage therapy in Palo Alto can help prevent fibrosis or scar tissue, increase the flow of lymph, and improve sleep. Palo Alto massage therapy can help rehabilitate sports injuries.

How does massage work?
Massage involves working and acting on the body using pressure from the hands, fingers, elbows, knees, forearm, or feet of the massage therapist. The Palo Alto massage therapist focuses on muscles, tendons, ligaments, myofacia, skin, joints, or other connective tissue, as well as lymphatic vessels, or organs of the gastrointestinal system.
