find balance and relaxation in your body through massage.
Eighteen years of experience
I've been a practicing Certified Massage Therapist since 1997. After attending Alive & Well School of Massage, I opened a studio in Sausalito, California, for two years. Soon after, I moved to Nevada County, and have been practicing here for the past fifteen years.
Over the years, I've cultivated an approach that is both physically deep and attentive to the energy, emotion and intelligence of the body. The sessions give space for both relaxation as well as attention to problem areas that need specific approaches to realign and reconnect the body's capacity to be in balance.
While one could describe the level of pressure as deep-tissue massage, I don't tend to attack a problematic area with force: I do my best to listen to the way the muscles and tendons hold constriction or adhesion, and work to soften them prior to going deep enough to elicit a long-term change.
I offer the option of a fifteen-minute steam prior to or after a massage, and recommend the occasional combination of a BodyTalk session to improve therapeutic benefits.
