Choosing a massage therapist is a individual thing. You may not know if they are the correct one until they lay their hands on you. It is my hope that the information on this site will supply you with some insight into my work. For 7 years I have been practicing massage therapy, supporting people as they heal from injuries, cope with stress and navigate life changes.

From Our Website

I have been a practicing massage therapist since 2002. My work embraces solid, fluid, and energetic states of the body. An on-going student of Lymphatic Drainage and Craniosacral Therapy, I still draw from years of experience with myo-fascial massage. I also bring the experience I have gained working in clinical settings to my private practice. I welcome clients with specific therapeutic needs, including self-care, and those with curiosity about the body. Manual therapies can support all aspects of our inherent wellness, as well as address such concerns as musculo-skeletal tension, scar tissue, swelling and inflammation, acute and chronic pain, headaches, digestive issues, insomnia and anxiety, and recovery from traumas and surgeries.

I received my basic massage training at Texas Healing Arts Institute in Austin, Texas, graduating in 2001. My education has continued with ongoing training in Craniosacral Therapy at The Upledger Institute, and Lymphatic Drainage at Chikly Health Institute. In addition to private clients, I have worked in chiropractic offices and clinical settings. Before becoming a massage therapist, I had a career working with plants and gardening. The patterns and dynamics of the natural world are a big resource for me in this work as well.

Did you know that our bodies are more fluid than solid? Lymphatic Drainage is a gentle and effective manual therapy that assists movement of lymph where it has become sluggish or blocked in tissues and organs. People who experience the refreshing and integrating results of this light touch work find it can accomplish surprisingly profound changes. The lymphatic system is a network of vessels by which excess fluid and molecular debris are removed from the tissues, leaving them rinsed and functioning more optimally.

When you pre-pay for 5 sessions, you save. I accept cash, checks, MasterCard and Visa. You can pay online when you schedule your appointment. I do not accept tips. I feel strongly that this work is healthcare, not luxury. Instead, if you are moved, you can contribute to Pay it Forward, a fund I keep that is available to anyone with limited resources to access care. I am so excited about this, and hope everyone will make use of it! It is true that most insurance companies still do not reimburse for manual therapy without a prescription from a doctor.
