"When the abandonment to gravity comes into action, resistance ceases, fear vanishes, order is regained, nature starts again to function in its natural rhythm and the body is able to blossom fully, allowing the river of life to flow freely through all its parts."
Especially in today's fast-moving world everyone experiences stresses, which often translate into holding patterns of tension in our bodies as well as in our emotional lives. When we brace and hold ourselves, our natural flow of life is impeded, and this can lead to pain and discomfort in the body. In working with you, I hope to facilitate your healing process by helping you to release restricting patterns, allowing your body and whole self to flow more freely and with greater ease and liveliness.
Using compassionate, soothing touch, I help you enter a relaxed state where your body can restore, unwind and heal, and provide fulcrums around which your body can release tension and reorganize itself. I practice craniosacral balancing as well as integrative massage, in which I incorporate Swedish massage with long, flowing strokes, trigger point therapy, myofascial therapy, gentle stretching, and energywork, as appropriate. I also love to work with mothers-to-be, and find giving prenatal massage a great joy. More than anything, I find great fulfillment in helping others bring their awareness to sensing and feeling their bodies and emotions, cultivating a deeper connection to their whole being.
