About Us

Every person is different, every body is different -- and everyone deserves to be treated individually.  That is why I tailor each massage or bodywork session to the particular needs of each client.

I understand that pain is a sign that something is wrong - even during a body work session. I will work with you to discover the most effective pressure for your body, so that you can achieve lasting results.  I believe that my role is that of facilitator. I help your body find its ease; I don't force it to do anything. I cooperate with you in your healing journey, and I understand that it is only by working with you that I can help you achieve your goals.  At every step, I work with you -- healing can only happen when you are part of the process.

Additionally, I believe that the best car...

Client Testimonials

Here's what our clients are saying


  • Hi Helen, Thank you for the distance session on Friday. An hour or so afterwards, when I finally sat down and relaxed after finishing the packing in preparation for the drive back to Cambridge the next morning, I felt tingling down my spine and legs like I sometimes do after a visit to the chiropactor and the tension headache disappeared. I felt fine on the drive but VERY tired the day after - normal I would say after a 14 hour non-stop drive! - I'll be getting back to you for another session. love, Ann ps if you wish to alter this email to use on your website or where ever, please do and sign just Ann

    I appreciate that Helen asked me what I wanted to get from the experience. Helen has a very thoughtful approach and her caring about her clients is apparent. I also found it helpful when she explained some of the changes I may notice in my body after the session.

  • I received a distance session with Helen. Helen listened to my body and moved accordingly. I had a wonderful experience.

    A great massage session that really focused on the areas I was having problems with.

  • Helen is very intuitive and was able to quickly evaluate my problem and work towards a solution. She’s very calming and very professional.

    The reiki session was a wonderful experience.

  • Always wonderful.

    Consistently amazing.

  • I have had positive experiences with massage in the past, but Helen far surpasses those. She is attentive, highly skilled, and extremely effective.

    I went to see Helen for back pain, and it was virtually eliminated after my appointment. I regained nearly full range of movement immediately, and I was able to get back to full health within 24 hours by drinking lots of water and doing back stretching and cored strengthening exercises. Without Helen, I would have likely been out of commission for at least a week.

I made an appointment for Zero Balancing massage without knowing much about the procedure. Helen made me feel at ease right away. After a brief discussion of my needs and expectations she wen to work identifying areas of tension and pain. I felt a sensation of melting as she touched these spots. Although I was aware of everything she did I also felt I was in a deep sleep. The hour seemed like 10 minutes. When I left I felt much more relaxed and limber than I had in a long time. It wasn’t until I got home that I realized I was breathing much deeper and more effectively than I had been. After enjoying the sensation of breathing I noticed that my mind was clearing. It was like the fog lifted. So my evaluation of the experience is WOW.

Helen is a vocal therapist, ensuring that you are comfortable communicating about how your body is reacting to your massage. I need an approach like that in order to avoid suppressing the feedback I need to provide for the most effective massage. Helen made same day space for me on a Saturday, because I had thrown out my back and was in pain. I hadn't been able to move for almost 3 days. While it will take more than one appointment and some stretching "homework" to really fix things, Helen had me back from about 15% range of motion back to about 80% range of motion after a one hour session. I was able to take a full deep breath for the first time in 3 days.

Helen is extremely skilled and I have been very pleased with the outcome of both of my sessions so far. My lower back pain level has decreased immensely and I feel better in general than I have in a long time!
