I listen to each of my client’s goals for their massage; keeping in mind that every “body” is different, and therefore so is each massage. Whether you are interested in massage for relaxation, stress reduction, pain relief, injury recovery, or as part of a training program- I can help. I use a combination of Swedish, Trigger Point, Myofascial Release, Deep Tissue, stretching and Lomi-Lomi to address your needs and to achieve our goals for each session.

Massage helps us to connect with our body and find peace there—an excellent way of handling stress and the aches and pains that come with moving through life. I believe my work as a therapist is a sacred one and approach it with the upmost respect. I have experience working with a physical therapist helping clients manage chronic pain and recover from acute injuries and surgery. My techniques include deep tissue massage, myofascial release, trigger point therapy and Swedish. Whether we are doing a deep tissue massage or relaxation massage, my goal is to always make that massage the best part of your week.
