My Practice

My desire to pursue a career in touch therapy stems from my own struggles with chronic pain and anxiety. Physical and emotional injury, left untreated, can wreak havoc on the body systems and interfere with our activities of daily living. Massage and bodywork may work to improve impaired self-awareness, and facilitate a return to inner balance.

 

Pain is a complex issue that requires multi-faceted treatment.  I believe in an integrative approach to physical and mental well-being that helps people who have experienced trauma reconnect with their bodies, gain control of their health, and feel whole again.

My education and interests center around the art and science of touch. The entire human- mind, body, and spirit- must flow without interruption. I work with your body to customize treatments that help you feel your best.
