Massage Therapy
Bodywork...It just makes you feel real good!

Thank you for visiting my website. At this time, my practice is
full and I will not be taking on any new clients or students.

The massage & therapy services I offer can help ease the symptoms of:

  • chronic muscle pain
  • over-use syndromes
  • migraines
  • TMJ syndrome
  • depression
  • low back pain
  • thoracic outlet syndrome
  • sciatica and sciatica-type pain
  • fibromyalgia

I use a hypoallergenic massage gel which is perfect for all skin types.  If you prefer, I can use 100% jojoba oil or 100% organic virgin coconut oil.  Jojoba and Coconut oils are ideal for anyone with any type of skin irritation or sensitivity, psoriasis, eczema, etc.  The choice is yours!

Swedish Massage
A systematic combination of soft tissue manipulation, along with stretching and joint rotation where appropriate.  Increases blood and lymph circulation, relieves muscle tension, calms the nervous system and reduces stress.

Deep Tissue
An intense, liberating treatment focusing on the deeper muscle layers and connective tissues.   Range of Motion used when necessary.

Pre and Post Natal Massage
Prenatal massage is tailored specifically for the expectant mother. In the side-lying and semi-reclining position, and with the use of pillows and padding proper safety and comfort for mother and baby are ensured.
Postnatal sessions are geared to help mother after giving birth. New mommies have special physical and emotional needs that will be addressed and personalized for each individual.

Reiki is the Japanese word meaning "universal life energy", the energy found in all things.  The Usui System of Reiki healing, or Usui Shiki Ryoho, applies this energy through gentle touch for the purpose of healing.  This is a simple yet profound technique for transferring healing energy from the universe to the receiver.

A light, relaxing Swedish massage using a blend of 100% pure essential oils designed specifically for your individual needs.  For this Spring and Summer I am offering the choice of either a Sandalwood Blend from Indonesia and Australia, Organic Lavendar from Bulgaria, Organic Juniper Berry, or Organic Neroli from Italy. Nota Bene:  The carrier oil that I use is 100% pure jojoba oil.

The art and science of manipulating the hands and/or feet with the premise that particular areas correspond to all organs, glands, and muscles of the body. 

Medical Massage
Medical conditions are addressed by targeting specific areas of concern in order to alleviate the symptoms from injury and/or chronic muscular discomfort.

Manual Lymph Drainage
This very specialized treatment targets the lymph system emphasizing the relief of congestion and blockages throughout the lymph vessels and the associated lymph nodes.  Based on the Dr. Vodder method, it is especially appropriate post-surgery or during a highly stressful period of time.

Craniosacral Therapy
This therapy is light and unobtrusive.  CST focuses on assisting and enhancing the production, circulation and reabsorption of cerebrospinal fluid that flows through the brain and spinal cord.  It is based on the training of The Upledger Institute.

Reiki/Swedish Combo or Craniosacral Therapy/Swedish Combo
Here's your opportunity to experience Reiki or Craniosacral Therapy without giving up the experience of having a Swedish massage.  I can devote half the session to Swedish massage and the remainder of the session to the other.
