"Helping you move towards a more comfortable state of being"

My goals as a Massage Therapist are to help you improve posture, alignment, and overall health of muscle and connective tissues. I also believe that a soothed nervous system facilitates deep healing. This is why relaxation is an important aspect of the treatments I offer. 

I incorporate Relaxation Massage with Myofascial Release, Deep Tissue work, Neuromuscular Technique, Trigger Point Therapy, as well as more subtle techniques, like Craniosacral Therapy, Lymphatic drainage and Visceral Manipulation. Combining these different modalities makes for a relaxing and effective treatment.

During your first session we will go through an assessment, in order to see what treatment techniques will best suit your specific needs. This also helps me to have an understanding of your body and health history. From there, each treatment will be unique, depending on what you need when you arrive that day.

Very specific techniques working within the Craniosacral system- which includes the  sacrum, spine, skull, brain, spinal cord and cerebrospinal fluid work to balance this system and can provide a gentle release for tension that is being held in the body.
