Massage involves 2 people - the practitioner to manipulate the body's tissues and the receiver to be in touch with what's happening in the body and to let go.

After I took my first basic massage course in 2005, I kept on going and learned the specialized technique of Orthopedic Massage. Orthopedic Massage assesses and treats pain and dysfunction in the body. It works on those areas that cause discomfort or physical suffering caused by injury, acute dysfunction or chronic misalignment caused by incorrect movement patterns.

To enhance the healing process, your involvement is important - the more you can be aware and tuned into your body during each session, the better your results.  I can help you to relax and then you can help yourself to release.

Since learning yoga and meditation in the late 70's, it has become a daily practice for me with profound effects. The traditional Ashtanga yoga I learned is steeped in selfless service, humility, non violence, truthfulness and subtle wisdom. I bring these qualities to my massage practice for a deeper understanding of the nature of life and we the people who live it.

I have been certified in 2 different orthopedic courses - by Tom Hendrickson and by Whitney Lowe. I am a California state certified massage practitioner with 950 hours of courses and am fully insured. I have a private practice in Berkeley Ca.
