I have been a Licensed Massage Therapist (LMT)* since 2001.
I am skilled in various techniques including Craniosacral, Neuromuscular Technique, Deep Tissue Massage, Swedish Massage and Sports Massage.
In addition, my practice includes experience with injury evaluation & treatment, myofascial & neurofascial release, intraoral work, hydrotherapy, pregnancy massage and reiki.
I received the foundation of my massage training from 2000-2001 at Brian Utting School of Massage (BUSM) in Seattle, Washington. I was also fortunate enough to be an instructor at BUSM for two years early on in my career as a massage therapist.
I became a Certified Craniosacral Therapist (CCST) through the program
offered by Pat O'Rourke
. I am profoundly grateful for the opportunity to share this gentle and extremely potent work with my clients.
My background includes several years working at a medical massage clinic resulting in extensive experience with all sorts of injuries and health conditions (whiplash, concussions, vertigo, arthritis, headaches, tendinitis, insomnia, anxiety, and more). I have also worked in various other settings including the Sonnenalp Resort (Vail, Colorado), Seattle Tennis Club (Seattle, Washington) and Massage Therapy Center (Los Angeles, California).
Because of my personal experience with voiceover & acting
, music & talent representation
, and sports & dance, I especially enjoy working with
athletes & artists of all kinds.
Whether I am working with an elite athlete or a desk jockey, a stay-at-home parent or a professional musician, I bring the same level of intent and specificity to my work and – whenever possible – I try to address the roots of the problems, not just the surface issues. I also strongly believe that relaxation and therapeutic bodywork are not mutually exclusive. True relaxation is ultimately therapeutic and therapeutic work is the only way real, lasting relaxation and balance will be achieved.
