I love wat I do! I am a licensed massage therapist with an Associate Degree in Holistic Massage Therapy specializing in the Art of Essential Touch. My training started when I was sent to Big Sur, California, Bali, and Indonesia where I became certified as an Esalen Massage Practitioner. The skills that I have acquired, in both technique and mind-body presence, allow me to be authentic with each client as each appointment.
My goal is to always bring a unique quality of touch to the table and I have developed an intuition about client needs by listening to their preferences, monitoring breathing rhythms and other subtle physical cues during the massage.
During a session you can expect a blend of nurturing, integrative, long strokes along with gentle stretching that will invite you to move easily welcome the deep tissue work. This will allow you to become more receptive to the healing energy within yourself. Your heightened sense of self-awareness in a safe environment will encourage letting go of chronic, tightened muscle holding patterns and will guide you to truly relax.

She approaches her work from a holistic perspective, meaning that she believes in a connection between mind and body and treats them together rather than as separate parts.
