My goal is to provide a place and time for you to relax deeply into your own wisdom of healing and rejuvenation. Our session will begin with you sharing yours goals and your body will also communicate a map that may reveal similar and additional areas related to your desires for relief. My intent is to meet your need for information, your need for relaxing touch, and provide you time to be inward and separated from the daily tasks and demands of your life.

My goal is to provide a place and time for you to relax deeply into your own wisdom of healing and rejuvenation. Our session will begin with you sharing yours goals and your body will also communicate a map that may reveal similar and additional areas related to your desires for relief. My intent is to meet your need for information, your need for relaxing touch, and provide you time to be inward and separated from the daily tasks and demands of your life.

When you come in to a session, I listen to your goals and your desire to shift any issue or two for a single session or through a series of sessions. Listening involves you telling your story about a part of your healing journey and will also involve my hands listening to the rhythms of your fascia, and your tissues which reflects its stresses. Both help direct where therapy will begin and guide the types of techniques that will be beneficial .

I strive to provide the right balance between communicating information your mind needs to feel safe on the table and to create a touch that nurtures and honors your inner wisdom. The body and mind has an awareness that needs to be acknowledged for stress to melt away. I am grateful to practice this healing art of manual therapy and honored to be on this journey that is of your choosing. It’s a privilege that requires a mindfulness of our whole being.

REVIEWS for my Bodywork services

by Marsha on Sep 18
Today I went in with an aching back from too much yard work. I am not exactly sure how CS works but I left with no ache in my back and felt much more flexible for the entire day.
