Diane began her training in 2001 in Thailand and continued at McKinnon Institute and  San Francisco School of Massage with Art Riggs, Certified Advanced Rolfer and CMT. She went on to become a Guild Certified Feldenkrais Practitioner under Russell Delman, to help people regain easy, efficient, and natural movement in all their lives’ activities. Craniosacral Therapy is her most recent exploration into Stillness and Internal Wisdom as the ultimate healer.

She has worked with chronic issues arising from auto-immune diseases and repetitive strains as well as acute accident injuries. Many clients have been seeing Diane long-term; building caring client-practitioner relationships based on mutual respect, trust, compassion, satisfaction and humor.

REVIEWS for my Bodywork services

by Kiva on Mar 17
Amazing!!! Diane is intuitive, gentle yet powerful, listens to your needs and delivers a magical and accurate healing bodywork session. Thank you endlessly!

As a Qigong teacher, I know the difference between real healing vs. just feel-good massage. Diane has gotten me walking again from severe knee and hip injuries. She also keeps these 70-year old shoulders swimming happily. She has recently introduced me to craniosacral work, and I'm hooked. Such profound healing! For 12 years she has been my #1 bodyworker. Her broad skill set -- deep tissue, craniosacral, Thai massage, Feldenkrais movement -- means she can always help in exactly the way I need. And she can move Qi like a pro!

Craniosacral cured my insomnia. I can't believe it. Just one session. What crazy, interesting work that is. I've always gotten such deep benefits from Diane's bodywork, I never thought of trying her other techniques. I'm so so grateful I did!

Diane was amazing. She was clearly very knowledgeable, and had several suggestions for me related to sports medicine. I'm a runner who's been having trouble with my IT band and an imbalance affecting my hips and legs, and she gave me some great advice for how I can try to work on that. She was very welcoming, professional, kind, and made me feel completely at ease. Her bodywork was wonderful, and left me feeling much improved. I would definitely return to her in a heartbeat.
