“Gratitude describes how I feel about my bodywork practice. Before becoming a massage therapist, I sought bodywork for chronic pain and discovered how well Massage, Craniosacral and Lymph drainage work. When there are restrictions in our tissues, the body has to work harder to achieve balance, Craniosacral Therapy helps the body resolve restrictions. Lymph Drainage Therapy is a modality focusing on reducing edema, inflammation and congested tissues. Whether restriction is in the muscles, craniosacral system, or lymph system, I have the the training and experience to sink gently to that layer and support your body to release the restriction.

Each session is creative and dynamic; by listening to and supporting you and your body in each moment, a unique therapeutic session emerges.
“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.
