ABOUT ME

Education and Training
I have been working as a massage therapist for sixteen years. A 2001 graduate of the Pennsylvania School of Muscle Therapy in Oaks, Pennsylvania, I participated in 750 hours of extensive training in anatomy, physiology, and pathology, as well as a variety of massage techniques, including Swedish, deep tissue, and sports massage.

I have continued my massage and bodywork education by taking courses in mayofascial release with Tom Myers at the School of Anatomy Trains, in muscle release techniques with Michael Young, in muscle injury with Ben Benjamin, and in Thai yoga massage therapy with Kam Thye Chow at the Kripalu Center for Yoga and Health.

My in-depth training, in tandem with open, confidential conversation with you about your body and health, enables me to customize the type of massage you receive so that you will experience the results you are seeking.

What I Hope to Give You
My overarching goals are to help people regain optimal function of their bodies and to help them tune in to the mind-body connection.

I use a deep, therapeutic, focused, and thoughtful style of massage. I combine deep tissue techniques with sports massage and neuromuscular therapy, which my clients find effective as well as powerfully relaxing and restorative. I work in relationship and cooperation with my clients to understand their bodies and their needs. Most important, I touch people intuitively, respectfully, and with intention.

I have seen firsthand the effects of pain on an individual's body and spirit. I strive to help people understand more about their bodies and why they may feel pain, fatigue, or discomfort as a result of a muscle imbalance, weakness, or holding pattern. I have had the honor of working with many of these individuals to help guide them along their way to better health and greater confidence in their bodies.
