ABOUT

ABOUT ME

I am a Licensed Massage Therapist and Nutritious Movement® Certified Restorative Exercise Specialist. I provide therapeutic deep tissue massages that blend Swedish, Shiatsu, Tui Na and Thai massage techniques, and provide Restorative Exercise instruction. My approach to pain is to focus on addressing chronic postural imbalances with both passive and active therapies. 


Massage is an invaluable tool. It promotes healing, better moods, better sleep, better digestion, and a reduction in muscle soreness from workouts, injury or overuse, relief from fascial restrictions and trigger points. However, passive therapy alone cannot achieve the results that are needed, relief that is not just temporary but long-lasting and exponential. My clients will experience the relief of massage but also the empowerment that learning how to address their pain on their own can bring.

I have personally experienced how movement with an imbalanced body or imbalanced approach can be injurious, even if we have the best of intentions. Movement can hurt us or heal us. We have to be educated about our bodies in order to navigate safely through fitness routines or start massive undertakings like high-intensity exercise, yoga, running, long-distance hikes, transitioning to more natural movement like barefoot walking o/r childbearing. Restorative Exercise is a way to get more fluent in movement and give you tools to help yourself move more safely in the world. 

 

Through my own experiences with recovering from injury, chronic aches, pains and discovering my own imbalances, I have learned a lot that I hope to bring to my clients in order to aid them in their own path towards healing themselves. I continue to build my skills, acupuncture and herbal medicine coming soon in 2020!
