I am a McKinnon Body Therapy Center graduate with a background in Swedish, deep tissue, sports and prenatal massage, with an emphasis in working with TMJ disorders. My skills have been seasoned through working in spa and chiropractic settings, and I excel at weaving bodywork expertise with the energetic aspects of Eastern modalities.
I use my skills and intuition to find the client's challenging areas and to determine which modalities to use to address and alleviate pain, improve mobility, and achieve relaxation. I am willing to meet the challenges and customize the massage according to what each client needs to improve their quality of life.
My style of massage combines tools from multiple techniques, all woven from the intention of full integration within the fluidity of the client’s re-integration process. My bodywork skills include Reiki, Esalen, Swedish, Shiatsu, and Deep Tissue massage. I also practice Qigong and take great care for knowledge and respect of human anatomy.
I intently listen to clients and we engage to identify the ‘what, where, and how’ to focus; whether a relaxing full-body massage experience with fluidity and strength, or perhaps combined with energy work, or along a continuum of more focused and customized therapeutic approach to address specific issues.
I am a practicing healing facilitator utilizing my training and tools, supplemented with the benefits of my meditation practice within qigong and yoga to support my client’s best interests.
