Massage is not a luxury; it is essential health maintenance, just like exercise. While exercise (including most styles of yoga) is the yang, integrative therapeutic massage is the yin of self-care.
Receiving nurturing touch resets and restores the body like nothing else. Dropping out of focused mind, enjoying connection in the physical body without effort, releasing tension and increasing flow all serve to enhance well-being and reduce dis-ease on all levels.
To that end, I have cultivated a deep, slow and soothing touch, informed by training in Shiatsu, myofascial and craniosacral therapies. My intention is to help you relax, enjoy, and inhabit your whole body. I am honored to be midwife to the healing that happens from this place.
While I specialize in Prenatal and Postpartum massage, I am glad to work with all who are ready to relax and receive.
I offer 60 and 90-minute appointments. I suggest the longer session unless you desire only focused attention to one or 2 specific areas.
What to expect at your massage visit
Off-street parking is available in our lot. You may leave your car here if you would like to take a walk before or after your appointment. Street parking has a 3 hour limit, so this is also a fine option.
My office is spacious, with natural light and a well-padded massage table. The table warmer makes it extra cozy!
There is a nice little waiting room with filtered water and tea provided. Please make yourself comfortable and I will come get you when its time to begin our appointment.
We will take a few minutes at the beginning to discuss your goals for the session. It is helpful if you complete all of the client intake information while scheduling your appointment.
You may pay for the appointment when you schedule online, or you may pay at the time of your visit.
Cancellation Policy: if you need to change your appointment, please give me as much notice as possible so I can offer your spot to another client. I reserve the right to charge the full fee for your session if you cancel or reschedule less than 24 hours prior to your appointment.
I use a BodyCushion for Prenatal Massage that allows you to lie face down safely and comfortably for all posterior work, even in the 3rd trimester!
