Listening to and navigating the body's inner landscapes

Since 2002, I have enjoyed helping people relieve pain, prevent injury, build mind-body awareness and generally support their overall wellbeing. It is truly rewarding to see others grow and live life more fully because of the work we do together. Using massage and energy work techniques, we can unlock the body’s wisdom and voice for enhanced integration and wholeness.

Since 2002, I have enjoyed helping people relieve pain, prevent injury, build mind-body awareness and generally support their overall wellbeing. It is truly rewarding to see others grow and live life more fully because of the work we do together. Using massage and energy work techniques, we can unlock the body’s wisdom and voice for enhanced integration and wholeness. My heartfelt goal for our time together is to co-create self-sovereignty and greater connection to self & all life. Whether we work physically with massage or energetically, it all adds to your journey of growth and coherency. This time is truly for you and your nourishment.
I have training in and utilize a variety of modalities to customize your session to create results that last and continue to evolve beyond the session. They include Myofascial Release, Deep Tissue & Trigger Point therapy, as well as more soft-touch and vibrational techniques such as CranioSacral Therapy, Acutonics (tuning forks) and Ortho-Bionomy. I am also certified in Pre & Perinatal Massage for our new mothers out there! My energy techniques include Reiki and a self-developed modality called “Body Hologram” where we release or bring into awareness what is not working for your body and transmit supportive elements for you to powerfully carry forward beyond the session.
The key –
The difference between my work and many other bodyworkers out there is patience. In my 14 years of doing bodywork, I have found that tissue and energies do not release in a lasting way without waiting and making friends with “what is so.” Most of the guarding around pain and holding patterns in our bodies requires this kind of patience and trust. I provide this facilitated witness and expertise so your body can heal itself. We also look at practices, habits and products that further support your progress between sessions.
I received my massage certification through Chicago School of Massage Therapy (now Cortiva Institute) in 2002. I received my advanced Myofascial Massage Therapy certification the following year and pursued further training in the other modalities mentioned above within the first 5 years after graduating.
My energy work has developed since 2005 in response to what I was seeing and feeling during my sessions with clients, especially during Cranio Sacral sessions. My work is subtle, but powerful, with far reaching results that include finer body awareness and integration, perspective shifts, greater alignment with your life path, and release of old scripts and patterns that hold us back. Most of this can be integrated into a session passively, other times I am guided to share what is revealed or ask more questions to help a client navigate their own choices. Sovereignty and voice are given to those areas of our body that hold wisdom for our journey to wholeness.
Me –
I am blessed with 2 children, one with autism and the other with massive creativity: they have taught me I have a keen eye and ear for activism, sovereignty, and long term success. I have brought that into my work and look for ways to bring voice to the voiceless when the timing is right.
I love and practice many forms of self-care, a constant balance with two children in tow.  I love taking hikes and being in nature, finding nutritional and energetic ways of healing my own body and calming my mind, and practice ways to develop my own voice through creative play and acting on behalf of the autism community. It is truly a joy to be part of both the holistic and disability communities and hope to integrate them in some way in the future.
I look forward to our work and play together. My intention is to bring greater depth and understanding to your journey and enjoy your embodied ride here on planet Earth. <!--[if gte mso 9]><xml> Normal 0 false false false EN-US X-NONE X-NONE </xml><![endif]--><!--[if gte mso 9]><xml> </xml><![endif]--><!--[if gte mso 10]> <style> /* Style Definitions */ table.MsoNormalTable {mso-style-name:"Table Normal"; mso-tstyle-rowband-size:0; mso-tstyle-colband-size:0; mso-style-noshow:yes; mso-style-priority:99; mso-style-parent:""; mso-padding-alt:0in 5.4pt 0in 5.4pt; mso-para-margin-top:0in; mso-para-margin-right:0in; mso-para-margin-bottom:10.0pt; mso-para-margin-left:0in; line-height:115%; mso-pagination:widow-orphan; font-size:11.0pt; font-family:"Calibri","sans-serif"; mso-ascii-font-family:Calibri; mso-ascii-theme-font:minor-latin; mso-hansi-font-family:Calibri; mso-hansi-theme-font:minor-latin;} </style>

Carrie was warm and welcoming. I enjoyed my massage as well as my time in your office. I've schedule a massage for my husband as well as another massage for me. I'm convicted...and am happy to have found a good massage therapist in the Evergreen area. Vera Guebert-Steward

You will feel well cared for by Carrie. She has the ability to heal beyond the physical realm by identifying, connecting to and helping release trapped emotional and spiritual energy. She is truly gifted.

Carrie was most thoughtful and knowledgable. Her technique was more deep tissue which I preferred. She was great!

Friendly and professional. Highly skilled massage therapist
by Bill on Mar 11
I liked that the massage was therapeutic. I liked that Carrie could tell what muscles were tight and then work on those muscles. I was sore immediately after the massage. However, the soreness became less as the day progressed.

I loved the massage. Carrie found the spots that were tight. The raindrop method of essential oil application was wonderful.
by harder-Axtell on Feb 28
It was excellent!! You got right to the spot! I'm feeling much better today. Thank you Carrie.

Carrie's is simply amazing! She is skilled, varied in her modalities, and gentle approached allowed me to relax enough to help me regain some balance and understanding in a very difficult situation I am dealing with (father's Alzheimer's). Her insight, explanation, and clarity brought me to a higher level of understanding, acceptance, and forgiveness for all involved. I highly recommend Carrie's to anyone for she has many skills in her tool box that she can pull from to best meet one's needs. The work she does with her tuning forks is amazing! She is gifted. Thank you Carrie!

I liked her gentle approach, firm touch and quiet, efficient work. She pays attention to what the muscle tells her--the ability to recognize and respond to that feedback is rare.

Carrie was amazing. She made me feel relaxed even though I was a little nervous. I left feeling like a new person.
