I'm so glad you're here!
My massage therapy career has spanned decades. In that time I have changed and my approach to massage has changed.
I strongly believe that we do not need to endure pain in order to make our body feel better. In fact, I have experienced light techniques producing better results faster that were longer lasting than the deepest work I have ever done.
I take a brain-centered approach to movement and massage. Our brain controls everything; our heart rate, our pain, our movement, our emotions. And all of those things are wrapped up into how our bodies move and feel.
Our body is incredibly smart. It creates protections with our muscles and movements so we don't break. It creates pain sensations as a means to let us know something is needing our attention. I take all this into consideration when addressing your specific pains.
Manual therapy looks at how the brain is communicating with the body and helps to improve any blurry spots in that communication. Movement and hands on therapy
This therapy is designed to alleviate pressures on the meninges of the brain allowing for full communication through the entire spinal cord.
A passive treatment designed to regulate the nervous system in a gentle way. Your comfort is of the utmost importance and your session will be led by that.
Utilizes the nerves in the bottom of the foot as well as Chinese meridians to support the body's natural ability to heal. This technique is incredibly relaxing
