My interest in massage stemmed from my passion for health, wellness and spiritual growth. I began a serious meditation practice when I was fifteen, attending multiple in person retreats and meditating for hours each day. My sitting practice led to occasional tension and pain in my back, so when it came time to complete my formal education, I decided to give massage school a try. I had no idea how significant this decision would be.
Bodywork has allowed me to achieve a sense of safety and attunement with my body and mind. It is easier to regulate my nervous system and feel a sense of connection to the world around me. Massage practice has created a deeper sense of self love and humanitarian acceptance. I still practice meditation for an hour each day and receiving regular massage allows me to enjoy my sitting practice pain free.
I offer sessions that realign structure, expand mobility and promote body awareness. Through an intuitive blend of deep tissue, myofascial release, sports/orthopedic and relaxation massage, I guide my clients toward balance and increased life force. Together, we will cultivate a new sense of play and curiosity toward your goals, set by the pace of your central nervous system. My intention is to offer a support system that fosters a sense of resilience and self regulation, aiming for lasting change that impacts my clients long after they leave my table.
