My Story“How did you end up here?” That was the first question we were asked as we gathered in a circle and introduced ourselves on the first day of massage school. My brain can track it all: growing up with a terminally ill brother and yearning to see a better bedside manner. Insight. Compassion. Idealism. In my 20s, shortly after his death, I fumbled through a pre-med program at Harvard thinking I could "become the change I wanted to see", but the warmth I craved wasn't in Cambridge. I lasted a year, then quit.
I was in my thirties––married, a mother, living out west as a seasoned creative professional––when I came to find (and appreciate!) really good bodywork. I experienced massage in college, unphased, but something shifted for me when I fell into the hands of a masterful therapist who somehow -- by her touch, warmth, her skill and presence -- helped me dissolve some of my guardedness, and open in new ways. I went again and again. I remember relaxing and receiving so deeply during those sessions. A quiet, inner universe opened for me, and I felt I had been led to a wellspring of peace I didn't even know I was searching for. "A reunion with myself" is the best way I can describe it. A seed was planted, and years later, tired of non-stop computer work and eager for a major life change, I enrolled in the Healing Spirits Massage Training Program.
I am honored to share my practice with my clients, and in doing so I have found new inroads to my own experiences of yoga, mindfulness, breathing, wholeheartedness, and rest. I am grateful massage is a part of my day to day life. My practice is small, I split my time professionally between bodywork and design, but so incredibly valuable. It is busy and loud out there in our world. Stressful situations are everywhere we look. I have learned that self care -- be it massage, or anything else -- is the one of the best kinds of health insurance we have.
My massage style is deep, integrative, unhurried and nurturing. I alternate between specific and holistic techniques in every session. I am intuitive, and I have a sound knowledge of bodily systems, anatomy and physiology. You have my assurance that I will listen to and honor the whole of your being -- so come exactly as you are, and give yourself the gift of slowing down, reconnecting with your body and breath, and allowing deep healing to replenish you. You are all welcome here.
I think it’s valuable to mention that receiving massage--receiving anything--is a skill that can be practiced and polished. The more massage you get, the better you get at receiving it. Healing and rest comes at the pace you allow it. With time and a therapist you trust and like, the benefits of bodywork are exponential. After a while you will notice that your experiences deepen. Your posture changes, you feel lighter, more connected to your heart, your body and your wisdom. Your breath unfolds from deep, rich places and shows up to assist you in all of life's ups and downs. Pain that once defined you is manageable, and many people report feeling more grounded, peaceful, and more in charge of their lives and time. Truly: the profundity of receiving heart-centered, therapeutic massage becomes clearer and clearer the more you invite it in.
Be patient with yourself if you’re new to massage. If you love bodywork like I do, share your experiences; don’t postpone joy! Book your next session, spread the love and treat yourself well.
My massage table is a sanctuary. I invite you to come relax, receive and refresh!
A warm thank you for your interest,
