My trademark massage integrates Swedish and Deep Tissue massage and CranioSacral Therapy. Long gliding strokes, kneading, and gentle craniosacral balancing settle the nervous system and increase circulation, and deeper, focused work zeros in on problem areas to address specific knots and tension.
 
Because I believe in treating each client individually based on their own goals and the way their body presents itself on a given day, I do not follow set protocols. Rather, we will speak briefly at the beginning of your massage session to negotiate what will be happening. You will be able to request a focus on relaxation or on a specific issue or area of tension, and we will decide together how best to meet your needs through a combination of modalities, including stretching, energy work, and aromatherapy as appropriate.

 

What is CranioSacral Therapy?

CranioSacral therapy (CST) aims to improve the functioning of the central nervous system and assist the body in its natural healing process. CST is performed while the client is fully clothed and uses a very light touch–about the weight of a nickle.  The work is generally seen as very soothing and relaxing.  Some clients report that the sensation is very subtle, but for others it can feel huge.  Many clients report falling asleep, or being in a sort of twilight state.

Among the issues for which craniosacral therapy can be especially effective are frequent headaches, back pain and anxiety/stress related issues.

Let me demystify massage and provide you with the tools you need to feel safe and confident in giving and receiving bodywork.  I teach through demonstration and hands-on practice, leaving you with the tools you need to share the nurturing, relaxing, therapeutic benefits of massage with your loved ones.  The lesson will include a brief overview of anatomy, the basic mechanics of giving massage (no more 'weak hands') and an easy to follow protocol for working on the back, neck, shoulders, hands and feet.
