Needs and preferences vary from person to person, and the same massage client rarely needs the same session twice. I’m here to meet you where you are today.

Here are some of the techniques I might bring to a session…

  • Esalen massage techniques focus on activating the parasympathetic nervous system, assisting the lymphatic vessels, and consciously addressing multiple layers of muscle tissue. Quickly reduce the effects of stress, set your cares aside, and get deep relief that relaxes along the way.
  • Hawaiian lomilomi brings the oceanic power and graceful flow of indigenous healing work to my sessions. Lomilomi is always nurturing, never jarring or “pokey,” and highly adaptable to meet the needs of many body types and physical conditions.
  • Craniosacral therapy helps to release constriction in connective tissue, from the diaphragms that hold our organs in place, to the dura that protects and helps nourish the brain and spinal cord. All of this connective tissue is interrelated, in a web that spans the entire body – a release of constriction anywhere in this system is of benefit everywhere!

Please call or email today to book a session for yourself, purchase a gift certificate for a loved one, or ask any questions you don’t see answered here.
