Massage Therapy

About:

I offer trauma informed massage therapy that works with your body where it's at. Through the power of healing touch I aim to create healing space that helps people reconnect with their bodies, reduces pain and tension and supports rest and relaxation. This allows the body to do what it does best, heal itself and return to homeostasis. I believe in keeping communication open and providing a safe space so your body is able to relax and integrate the work. I use my love for anatomy to address the body as a whole and figure out the best way to relieve tension. Let's work together and tap into the power of healing through hands on practice.

 

I graduated from National Holistic Institute School of Massage. My CAMTC certification number is 94190. I have also completed a 30 hour Thai Massage training and a Reiki Level 1 & 2 training.

Swedish Massage

Swedish massage is a relaxation massage that supports stress relief, circulation and helps relieve muscle tension. Swedish massage incorporates long strokes, muscle kneading, compressions and rocking. I will also incorporate some elements of deep tissue, slower strokes with deeper pressure, targeting trigger points and adhesions and MyoFascial therapy, assessing range of motion in joints to target muscle pairs and support pain relief and increase range of motion.
