Bodywork & Massage
"And the day came when the risk to remain tight in a bud was more painful than the risk it took to blossom." Anais Nin
My journey as a bodyworker began while I was attending Engineering School at UVA. I saw a flyer in town for the Virginia School of Massage in Charlottesville, VA and decided to go to massage school simultaneously during college and see where my career would lead me.

My journey as a bodyworker began while I was attending Engineering School at UVA. I saw a flyer in town for the Virginia School of Massage in Charlottesville, VA and decided to go to massage school simultaneously during college and see where my career would lead me. Unfortunately, I had a little accident with a finger right before the final exam which promptly ended the possibility of that career. So I became a successful engineer with jobs in hazardous waste management, land development, construction and park and recreation facility development. However, when I moved to Boulder and took some time off of work to be home with my three young children, I realized that there was a void in my work and I wanted something greater, some kind of service that would fulfill my heart. I remembered that long lost dream of being a massage therapist and my finger had healed after the years, so I went back to school in 2010 at the Massage Therapy Institute of Colorado and became a certified massage therapist, and re-launched my career in the healing arts.
In my private practice, my goal is to listen carefully to my clients, and then integrate my knowledge, experience and intuition into sessions that feel both nurturing and supportive. I believe strongly that the gift of healing is innately born within each of us. My job is to support you in your own healing journey. And wow, doesn't it feel fantastic when you break through your own limitations - whether physical pain/illness and/or emotional blocks - to live with more vitality, joy and gratitude for yourself?!
Many of my sessions start with a blend of the most common forms of therapeutic massage, including Myofascial Release, Deep Tissue, Swedish and Neuromuscular Therapy. My studies in structural engineering in college certainly was a natural transition to understand and apply to working with the structure of the body.
What makes my own work unique and transformational is adding my unique style of energy healing into my sessions. Similar to the blending of therapeutic massage forms, I love to integrate all of the forms of energy healing that I have studied and practiced over the years into a nameless form. I was deeply inspired and intrigued with all of my studies in physics in high school and college which informed me of my natural abilities to understand and work with energies. My studies in physics were certainly a gift that I now also apply to the energy field of the human body in bodywork. Common forms of energy work that I often tap into are Reiki, Access Consciousness and Shamanic Healing, but most powerful transformations are always when my client and I step into the mystery of the unknown.
One more unique additions to my work is the Acutonics. Acutonics is the application of precisely calibrated tuning forks on and around the body. The activated forks are placed on acupuncture points (like acupuncture without the needles!), chakras and/or in the auric field. It is a form of sound healing that combines both the ancient wisdom of the East and archetypal astrology, which is relevant to our modern day life in the West.
The common thread among everything that I bring to a session is simply plain old love from the heart.
