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


  • Helen is a gifted healer. She brings body work to all new levels by combining various techniques that not only address the physical body but the emotional, mental and spiritual aspects of the body as well. The results I have received while working with her have nothing short of amazing!

    Helen has been seeing our now 6 year old for several months now. I'm so grateful for her persistent care which has made space for our child (who has a lot of energy and who can have a hard time identifying and vocalizing feelings) to feel calm and safe. Thank you Helen!

  • Helen is a gentle person, thoughtful, amazingly skilled with human anatomy, and provides a customized bodywork experience. I can’t wait until my next session.

    Helen does a great job of understanding how to achieve the best outcome.

  • She's amazing. I felt a difference right away. I didn't realize that the business is in her home. That wasn't a problem at all, just a surprise. And the covid protocals were reassuring.

    Helen was very professional and good at listening to what I wanted in a massage. She checked in with me a few times during the massage to make sure that I was receiving the right pressure. I appreciated her covid precautions. The massage was just what I needed and I would definitely schedule with her for more in the future.

  • Helen is one of the best massage therapists I've been to. She's constantly adding to her skills as a teacher, and with continuing education in new modalities, combining the best of science and subtle skills to work with the body, sprit, and mind. She uses gentle techniques that are effective, nurturing, and supportive.

    It was my first time trying Reiki and I had a great experience. I've already scheduled a second appointment to try CranioSacral massage. Helen is very kind and professional.

  • Helen is a true healer. The kind of work she does is exactly what is needed particularly in theses times.

    I would recommend Helen. She was very informative and kind.

I am a Covid long hauler. I had been debating on trying Craniosacral therapy for months because others have shared it had been helpful in improving their long haul symptoms. I finally decided to give it a try a few weeks ago. I have had two sessions with Helen so far. I am so glad that I did. All of my symptoms have dramatically improved. I have made more progress in two weeks than I have in a year with care I have received in four medical systems. I am very grateful for the care Helen has given me. I feel like I have my life back.

Helen went out of her way to make sure I was comfortable in the space and with letting her know if any pain or discomfort came up during our session, then checked in periodically throughout. She used a few different healing modalities and told me about each of them. I felt amazing afterwards, will absolutely be booking with her again!

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 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.

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.
