  • Nervous System Reset: Integrative Massage and Variations

    If you like manual Swedish massage with some bells and whistles, you'll enjoy an integrative massage. These full-body sessions work profoundly on the circulatory, lymphatic, muscular, energetic, and nervous systems, and include an intuitive integration of bodywork modalities such as rocking or shaking, stretches, acupressure, deep massage, trigger point release, lymphatic drainage, reflexology,  myofascial release, and craniosacral therapy. The pressure can be light, moderate, or deep where you need it most. You leave feeling refreshed, renewed, and more present in your body, with a decrease in pain and tension and an increase in mobility. 

    Variations include vigorous sports massage with stretches and percussion, prenatal/postnatal (side-lying) massage, and hot stones massage (during winter months only, on request). 

    You undress in privacy, and draping is used to cover all but the area being worked on.  
  • Back, Shoulders, Neck, Head

    If you just want bodywork on your upper body, you'll enjoy these sessions. Where do you carry tension? B/S/N/H sessions focus where you need it most: back, shoulders, neck, and/or head, using Swedish massage, myofascial release, trigger point therapy, stretches, acupressure, deep massage, craniosacral work, lymphatic drainage, and scalp and/or face massage. Great for aching low, mid, and upper backs, tight shoulders, stiff or sore necks, and tension headaches. You undress only the areas being worked on, with draping provided.
  • Healing Foot Massage

    If you love to have your feet massaged, you'll love this! Sometimes a foot massage is just what you need. No need to get undressed, and the deep relaxation affects your entire body, so you leave feeling as if you've had a full body massage. Drawing on my training in anatomy, reflexology,  trigger point therapy, Swedish massage, acupressure, stretching and more, after our session, your feet will feel refreshed and energized. 
  • Relief from TMJ Pain

    If you suffer from jaw pain, tightness, clenching, grinding, clicking, popping, etc., you'll love the relief these sessions provide. For those with temporomandibular joint (TMJ) issues (diagnosed or not), this treatment includes an assessment of jaw range-of-motion, releasing tightness in key external and internal jaw muscles, and neck and craniosacral work. Please schedule 90 minutes for your first session; then schedule follow-ups as needed. Just three sessions often bring lasting change.  
  • Craniosacral Therapy for Enhanced Well-Being

    If you want to relax deeply, experience a more subtle form of bodywork, and feel more centered afterwards, you'll enjoy a craniosacral session. These sessions intuitively combine biomechanical and biodynamic craniosacral work to help you relax, become centered, and strengthen your innate healing capacity. In these meditation-like, gentle-touch sessions, you may experience releases of tension, warmth, unwinding, and a deeper sense of being fully present and centered in your body. 
  • Sole-ful Ashiatsu and Ashi-Thai Barefoot Massage

    If you like deep pressure with broad, gliding strokes, you'll love Ashiatsu! Using long, flow-y strokes performed with the whole foot, heel, or balls of the toes, Ashiatsu barefoot massage deeply refreshes your body, loosens knots, and invites spontaneous spinal adjustments. I control the pressure from light to deep. Delicious Ashi-Thai compressions and stretches included! You undress in privacy, with draping used to cover parts not being worked on. 


    Ashi-Thai standalone sessions are done with you fully clothed in loose or stretchy garments. 

  • Extreme Yin/Yang

    If you'd like to experience deep cleansing pressure followed by light, gentle, slow touch, you'll love this! It starts with you face down on the table. Holding onto overhead bars, I use my soft, clean feet and warmed oil to artfully work on your shoulder, back, gluteal, hamstring, and calf muscles, undraping one part at a time, offering deep, firm, broad strokes and working with your preferences for pressure. Ashi-Thai stretches are an option if you want them. When you turn face up, I manually encourage your neck to release its tensions, and then do slow, subtle, elegant craniosacral work on your head, fine-tuning your nervous system. 
  • Discounted Bodywork

    If you like bodywork at discounted prices performed by an experienced therapist practicing new modalities, check these out. The services below are discounted from my regular rates and are sometimes free or pay-what-you-wish. 
    • 30 minutes Zero Balancing $20

      Zero Balancing sessions improve energy flow and structural integrity by working with the deepest layer of the body, the bones. Sessions are done fully clothed, minus shoes, belts, or anything binding. ZB doesn't just relieve stress, it leaves you feeling transformed in your being. Clients have said that after a session, they feel lighter, taller, more poised, more balanced, with great posture and easy movement. 

    • 60 minutes Shiatsu

      Shiatsu is a Japanese meridian-based form of bodywork that uses compression and stretches. You remain fully clothed. Free while I'm learning! 

    • 90 minutes biodynamic craniosacral therapy

      During spring 2015, pay what you wish! Sessions use gentle touch and stillness to connect with deep healing rhythms. If you like meditation and would like to refine your somatic awareness, you'll enjoy these sessions. Done fully clothed.
