I have over 2,000 hours of training and continue to study and evolve my approach to helping my clients gain deep relaxation and stress relief, as well as freedom of movement and injury rehabilitation. I like to work according to what each client needs to support optimal functioning and health.

My bodywork is infused with the Body Mechanic Method ® principles. The Body mechanic method ® is a sensorimotor approach to learning that engages the body-mind to help clients become aware of their movement, posture, and structural holding patterns that contribute to tension, pain, and unnecessary limitations. These compensation habits—often learned after injuries, accidents, and trauma—will start to change, reminding your body-mind of the way it was organized before the trauma, bringing you back to earlier, more functional ways of moving and being.

I encourage my clients to be active participants in their healing process which brings harmony to mind and body through my nurturing, therapeutic touch. My experience of body mechanics, strength, flexibility, and holistic outlook allows them better body functioning as well as more spacious living.

Outside of my bodywork practice, In my spare time I enjoy spending time with my fiance,  family, and our dog Mikey. Thoroughly enjoy the outdoors, hiking, biking in nature and enriched by traveling. I like to stay emotionally and physically fit with Yoga and bodyweight training. My bodywork has been influenced by many years of these practices as well as meditation practices, which nourish me deeply, professionally and personally.

I had an hour massage and it was the best! I had a pinched nerve in back and he was able to relax me and help alleviate the pain. It was very clean and relaxing atmosphere. I definitely recommend coming here!
