.: Harmony for body, mind and spirit :.
.: A proud graduate of Fingers Lakes School of Massage and most recently the New England School of Acupuncture at MCPHS University, for over 10 years I have practiced massage on diverse populations, from New York to the Caribbean to the seacoast region of New Hampshire and Maine. With experience working in full service spa environments, dedicated massage studios, doing medical massage in chiropractic offices and my own private business, I am well-versed in a range of modalities and clientele. I gravitate towards deep tissue work, but as a certified Usui/Tibetan Reiki Master, I also appreciate the more subtle powers of energy work.
It's best to work smarter, not harder. The muscles, fascia and nerves will only relax when we work with them, not against them. I also believe a massage session is team effort. I use a carefully applied combination of Swedish, stretching, deep tissue, myofascial, orthopedic and connective tissue therapies along side with Reiki, breathing and emotional awareness; This is where I find the most effective results.
Every body is different - I don't massage according to a recipe or pre-conceived set of assumptions, I do a detailed intake and find out exactly what brings you to my table that day. I feel with my hands, tune into your body, check in with you during your session so I know exactly what kind of pressure you need. I allow myself to be guided by intuition. Together, the session is tailored specifically to you and your body's needs, for that particular day.
I am passionate about what I do and I love expanding my knowledge of bodywork and sharing that knowledge with my clients. If you have any questions about massage or if you are curious about acupuncture and Chinese Medicine, feel free to e-mail me (firstname.lastname@example.org). I'll be happy to answer them to the best of my ability. And if I can't, I'll be happy to point you in the right direction! :.
