I became a registered massage therapist in 1997. Continuing education and self-care have informed and sustained my practice. I am supported and energized through travel, cycling, practicing Qi Gong in our beautiful parks, trying new recipes, and (I’ll admit it) Netflix.
I provide precise treatment to the main areas of concern while supporting full body integration of any changes as they occur. Primary techniques in my sessions include Fascial mobilization and release, craniosacral therapy and visceral mobilization. These techniques involve grip and light stretch. They can be applied through clothing. The use of lotion is minimal, if it is used at all.
I am particularly interested in working on chronic patterns and symptoms that persist (and sometimes appear) long after the initial injury. It is very satisfying to see a gradual increase in activity and reduction of limiting symptoms in patterns that seemed as though they were here to stay.
