     Welcome!  I have been a Licensed Massage Therapist since 1992, CranioSacral Therapist since 1998 and a Certified Fitness and Yoga Instructor since 2006.

In addition I also practice and teach Reiki, Qigong, and meditation   I enjoy assisting people in finding pain relief and relaxation through bodywork and holistic health.  


     Whether you are looking for relief from a recent injury or illness or recovering from a chronic condition, I look forward to helping you feel and function better. 

                                      
I have over 26 years experience in healing modalities.  I enjoy working with all ages. The youngest I have treated was 2 hours old and I had the pleasure of working with a 92 year young client for many years
!

I do extensive work in the birthing community.

With newborns in treating conditions such as torticollis, colic, reflux, nursing troubles, latching concerns, ear infections, and digestive concerns.

With Pregnant/post-partum moms  Helping to keep mom in physical alignment while pregnant and alleviating the tensions on her changing body. As well as relaxing muscles after the birth. For fetus, CST can help keep the womb soft and moveable so baby can get into proper alignment for birth. If you are experiencing mal-position of baby (Transverse lie, Breech) give me a call.

I also have a passion for working with toddlers and children (please see those pages)

For adults my services range to cover wellness maintenance and recovery from illness and injury. Additionally, I work with people recovering from cancer and surgery. Healing touch coupled with gentle therapies work to break the cycles of pain and stress thus allowing you to feel at your best.

Fitness and Exercise
I love movement! It can be slow/mindful Qigong, or working out specific muscles and cardio. Movement is Health! The ability to move is precious, when it is painful or hard, it changes our whole outlook on life. There are many ways to "get moving again". I love helping people find what different ways appeals to and suits them best!

I do individual sessions that are quite comprehensive, tailored to your specific needs and desires. I have exercise trainings in injury/surgery recovery and well as in preventative.





Teaching

Teaching is a passion for me, these are small size classes that allow students plenty of time to absorb, discuss and engage in the topics.

See the Classes Page for upcoming courses.
