relax . . . recover . . . re-discover wellness

In over 30 years of bodywork practice, I’ve dedicated myself to ongoing education and training to improve my skills and my clients’ lives. But massage therapy is not just about technical skills; it’s also an intuitive and individual process that incorporates the emotional life as well as the physical. My expertise in bodywork will take you to a higher level of wellness, recovery, and self-expression.The foundation of my approach rests on deep-tissue work that addresses structural balance, with techniques that re-educate long-held patterns of movement. I work with the soft tissues to resolve pain and dysfunction, and use muscle testing that changes a passive session into a truly engaging, results-filled session.It would be an honor to work with you, and to bring my skills and knowledge to your journey of healing and personal development.

ABMP_for-websiteThe foundation of my work is my advanced training (over 1000 hours) in Hellerwork Structural Integration (Hellerwork SI). This is deep-tissue work that addresses structural balance and includes resist-and-release techniques that re-educate long-held dysfunctional patterns of movement.

I also emphasize the use of Orthopedic Massage for manipulation and movement of soft tissues to resolve pain and dysfunction, and Neuro-Muscular Reprogramming (NMR) which involves muscle testing so I can more accurately access the issues and body response.
