Why receive massage therapy?
Bodywork can be a deep healing on many levels. While working to relieve pain, it can also be a process of going deep -- a meditation, a place of quieting the mind--of being in what I call "The Universe Within."
With a bachelor's degree in the sciences and extensive training, I have been practicing the art and science of massage since 1993. Using multiple modalities--deep tissue, trigger point, sports, myofascial release, Swedish and subtle energy work-- together we find the most effective path for your healing, from injury, chronic pain or everyday stress. My work combines academic knowledge with skilled intuition.

Where east meets west massage therapy
There are infinite reasons to experience massage therapy. It can be healing on physical, emotional and spiritual levels.
Receiving regular massage helps you tune into your own body, learn your vulnerable areas, the places holding stress.
You'll begin to understand that sometimes your body aches more than you realized and you'll learn to listen to it better.
You'll give yourself the opportunity to rest, breathe and relax...and learn tools to help you in-between sessions.
Ultimately, we'll work together to learn your body, your needs and the steps to restore, promote and maintain health.
My training and experience are extensive; know that you are in good hands.
