“Great bodywork should directly engage the whole person, helping you release unhealthy patterns and engage with a deeper awareness of your body and how it works. That is where the real healing comes from. I'll work with your injuries, tensions, and stress, and I'll also work with you as a whole person - body and mind - to give you the care you deserve.
