"Those who contemplate the beauty of the Earth find reserves of strength that will endure as long as life lasts." - Rachel Carson
About me ~
I've always felt most at home in nature and have found it to be a vital source of restoration, inspiration, and a reminder of the interconnectedness of all things.
"One touch of nature makes the whole world kin." - William Shakespeare
The grounding, healing power of the Natural World is what I strive to bring into my practice, both aesthetically and energetically. I have created a nature-filled ambiance engaging the senses. The decor is filled with artwork, various plants, stones and life-like creatures of the forest. Scents of essential oils, and/or sage, palo santo wood or sweetgrass subtly fill the room. Music is beautifully ambient, often the Icelandic sounds of Sigur Rós, but sometimes Celtic, Spanish guitar or cello are heard. I use Pandora for music, so options are limitless. I love music - share your favorite artists with me.
"The art of medicine consists in amusing the patient while nature cures the disease." - Voltaire
While I adore this quote from Monsieur Voltaire, I know that a simple traipse through the woods isn't going to undo years of knotted muscle and fascia. This kind of healing and treatment takes patience and a variety of therapeutic skills. In the 7 years I've been practicing, I've acquired some specialized training I'm able to draw from including:
Motor Vehicle Accident treatment
Haase Deep Tissue Technique
TMJ Dysfunction Protocol
Aromatic Hot Stone Therapy
Fire Cupping and Gua Sha
Indian Head Massage
Massage for Cancer Patients/Survivors
I have several years of experience working as a Chiropractic Assistant and LMT for various doctors working in Injury Rehab. I am able to use those therapeutic-specific techniques when needed, but now are used in combination with spa-like touches. I have a caring, grounding presence and my massage style is fluid, mainly Swedish/Deep Tissue using flowing broad strokes; however, I am able to tailor to individual needs. Every person's massage is a little, or sometimes a lot different; and as incredibly diverse individuals, that's as it should be. The commonality is leaving my studio in a state of deep relaxation and an elevated feeling of wellness. I look forward to co-creating an experience uniquely yours.
See you in the trees,
