Massage

My training and experience with several modalities give me the freedom to meet the body’s needs using unique styling and flow. Specific modalities from which I draw include Swedish, Deep Tissue, Myofascial Therapy, Shiatsu, Jin Shen Do, Acupressure, Thai, and Reflexology. I have extensive training in prenatal and postpartum massage, certification through Carole Osborne’s Body Therapy, and invariably draw from my experience as a DONA-trained birth and postpartum doula when providing nourishing bodywork for birthers.

Sessions can be created using the modality of your choice, or a combination that reflects your interests. Additional instruments to encourage healing include stones and percussion tools. For in-home treatments, mud wraps and sugar/salt scrubs can also be used.

I am a firm believer in the power of intentional, therapeutic touch to help people prepare for and integrate other deep healing work in their lives. Using a detailed intake process, we co-create nourishing treatments for you that could include various modalities including massage, stretching, Yoga poses and breathing techniques, soaks and scrubs, as well as meditation, visualization, sound and energy work. My goal is to not only address physical “issues in the tissues”, but to help clients experience a deep sense of inner power and connection they can call upon to meet the challenges of a holistic, well, integrated life.

Enjoy deeply nourishing and relaxing massage in the comfort and privacy of your own home or in studio, with all state and local health and safety precautions in full effect*.

Signature Massage**

An ethereal blend of Myofascial Deep Tissue, Esalen-style Swedish, Thai, and Reflexology arranged to meet your individual needs.

Prenatal Massage

Whether you join me in my studio or I bring the spa experience to your home, rest assured that your comfort and safety are my number one priority. Both side-lying and prone positioning systems are available for your massage.

Himalayan Salt Stone Massage***

This cozy treatment helps to ground erratic energy patterns and revitalize with heat and the restoration of key minerals. The heated salt crystals also release negative ions, which help elevate the mood and normalize blood pH. This treatment deeply relaxes, eases tension, improves circulation, and lifts your spirits.

Embodied Journey, In Stillness**

90 Minute Journey {60 minutes of bodywork, followed by a 30 minute Intuitive Journey with hand, foot, and head chakra activations} $200

120 Minute Journey {90 minutes of  bodywork, followed by a 3o minute Intuitive Journey with hand, foot, and head chakra activations} $250

The Intuitive Journey is a guided meditation using impressions and subtle energy readings related through the body. Various places, characters, events, and tasks are explored through creative visualization, and brought more fully to life through intentional touch of the energy centers at the hands, feet, and head. While certain elements of the journey may be suggested by the client and discussed before the session, the details are usually arrived at spontaneously as I interact with your body and energetic field.

Energy Clearing and Revitalizing**

90 Minute Cycle {30 minute clearing and revitalizing of the energetic body using Therapeutic Yoga positions and energy movement modalities, followed by 60 minutes of bodywork} $250

120 Minute Cycle {30 minute clearing and revitalizing of the energetic body using Therapeutic Yoga positions and energy movement modalities, followed by 90 minutes of bodywork} $300

Moving, cleansing, and revitalizing the energy field by skilled practitioners is an ancient practice that extends to every corner of the world. There are myriad modalities used today, synthesizing traditions from near and far, ancient and modern practices, using various tools and training. In my own practice, I use both touch and touch-free methods, as well as specific body positions supported by bolsters and blankets to create an effortless, nourishing placement for your body as you release what no longer serves you, and take in what you need.
