Massage & Other Strategies for Therapeutic Change

A massage Therapist since 1997, Natalie has spent most of the last decade teaching massage therapy at Everest Institute. Now re-opening her private practice, she is looking forward to getting back to hands on work.

"My style is pretty eclectic," she says. "I like to tailor each session to the client's needs, to where they are in their life. I partner with them to help them get back to a state of wellness, of pain free functioning, whatever level that may be."

A massage Therapist since 1997, Natalie has spent most of the last decade teaching massage therapy at Everest Institute. Now re-opening her private practice, she is looking forward to getting back to hands on work.

"My style is pretty eclectic," she says. "I like to tailor each session to the client's needs, to where they are in their life. I partner with them to help them get back to a state of wellness, of pain free functioning, whatever level that may be."

In order to do this, Natalie uses a mix of therapies, ranging from deep tissue to relaxation, and including myofascial and trigger point releases as required. Strategies for improved wellness are designed with client collaboration, and suggestions for home work are given to encourage faster return to, or better maintenance of wellness.

Hot stone and energy work sessions are also available. Please check out the services page for more details.

REVIEWS for my Bodywork services

Natalie is an exceptionally skilled massage therapist. Her knowledge of the musculoskeletal system is amazing. I appreciate her willingness to focus on a problem area and getting me to feel and function better.

Natalie was one of the most knowledgeable masseuses I've ever had! I felt very comfortable and relaxed throughout the appointment. She gave me a ton of information about what she was working on me, and the benefits; she also gave me helpful dietary and posture tips! I left feeling very balanced and refreshed. I would absolutely recommend her to anyone looking for a well-rounded massage experience.

Natalie has given me the best masssages I've ever had. Natalie is so skilled and knowledgeable. I've had a lot of massages over the years-none of them have come close to Natalie's expertise! I highly recommend her services!

Amazing understanding of the human body! I now understand why parts of my body feel the way they do and what needs to be done to relieve pain and have a healthier body all over.
