I approach every massage session as an opportunity help you resolve pain, and increase mindful body awareness. 

I use Lymph Drainage, Polarity Energy Balancing Thai, Swedish, Ayurvedic, and Orthopedic Massage to reach those goals. I also offer Self-Massage & Fascial Release instruction 1-on-1, before or after your session. (Should you choose that add-on!)

Sessions can be focused very therapeutically, or focused on deep restoration and relaxation. I will ask you details about your health history and tailor each session to your needs. 

In my book, taking really good care of your body, your creativity, and your emotions is one of the most radical things one can do.

REVIEWS for my Bodywork or Coaching services

Miriam spends time during each session discussing progress. She answers questions, and makes intuitive observations. The ligament therapy with Miriam has been extremely helpful, and she gives guidance about being proactive with exercise as I heal. I am very happy to be working with her.

Miriam provides a wonderful space to give her wonderful massage. She is skilled, responsive to my feedback, and offers suggestions for stretching and body work at home if asked. I feel very fortunate to know Miriam and be the recipient of her healing gifts.

Thank you so much for a lovely massage - it was a good blend of therapeutic and relaxing - just what I needed! I can't remember the last time I actually fell asleep during a massage! Thank you!

I loved that I was in a dream like state of relaxation! The built up tension in my body , some that I wasn't aware of, had dissolved shortly after the appointment started. Miriam has a gift of getting to the root of the problem! Her presence is calming and she guides one to a place of knowing that the stored pain will be released .

Refreshing, rejuvenating, relaxing and addresses the areas where I have pain and releases the pain to manageable life levels to continue the healing. Miriam is amazing!

My sessions with Miriam became an instrumental part of my healing journey. I’m grateful for our time together specially because of her care, awareness and knowledge of the gross and subtle body.
