“If you are like most people, then you tend to take on more in life than what the body and psyche prefer. Stress has different ways it manifests in the body; be it for example physical pain, digestive issues, or emotional upset and disease. It does not take long before patterns begin to form as one bodily system disrupts the other. In my practice, I aim to interject in these chronic cycles by addressing the different aspects of dis-ease at hand, as one condition is rarely a stand-alone phenomenon.
“Let your mind slip into a blissful meditative state as your body is kneaded into relaxation through warm oil, hot stones, and a therapeutic massage.

I stay in tuned to the body and slowly strip away built up muscle tension while giving the body exactly what it needs without causing any pain.
