Massage & bodywork sessions designed around your goals, your body, and your experience.
My clients include athletes, professionals, parents, artists, and adults of all ages interested in cultivating and maintaining an experience of health, alignment, integration, and ease within their bodies.
I draw on techniques from Swedish Massage, Connective Tissue Therapy, Neuro Muscular Therapy, and Sports Massage to provide a comprehensive treatment to the body. I work specifically and intentionally into areas of tightness and pain while supporting the overall health of the musculature, fascia, and body as a whole. The pressure will be light, moderate, or deep depending on the health of your muscles and how your body receives and responds to the pressure.
Some of the most profound bodywork that I have received and given has been of a subtle nature. I have learned that specificity has more power than depth. First, I focus on working specifically. On that specific level, the depth of pressure will be whatever your body is most receptive and responsive to.
Cranial Therapy (also called Cranio-sacral Therapy) is a gentle, non-invasive type of bodywork effective in responding to an array of clinical situations in the body including headaches, chronic pain, loss of function or mobility, fatigue, and vertigo. Many people experience cranial therapy sessions as deeply relaxing and, some feel that they enter a dream state, or a place somewhere between awake and asleep.
Different from a massage session, you will remain fully clothed. The pressure is very light, and the work is focused on improving the quality of of the rhythm and flow of the Cerebrospinal Fluid (CSF) throughout the body. I tune into the subtleties of the rhythm throughout the body and bring the movement of each body part in sync with the entirety of the craniosacral system. When the movement of these subtle systems of the body is attended to, the resulting benefits can include resolution of old injuries or trauma, relief from painful or limiting symptoms, and a greater sense of ease throughout the entire body.
Movement is a key part of my practice and something I am continually focused on. On a very simple level, I'm always focused on creating the space for shifts and movement to happen within your body, and within your experience of your body.
Movement has become even more of a focal point for me as I go through a 4-year practitioner training program in the Feldenkrais Method, an intricate system of movement that works in the space where the brain and the body communicate with each other to interrupt ineffective movement habits and create new pathways for more effective, easier, and enjoyable movement. More details will be provided as I continue through the training and begin to integrate this method further into my practice.
