I am proud to offer you a thorough and intuitive process to meet your needs. My approach for you will be customized and specific, integrating some of the following techniques and modalities.
My process starts with a thorough communication with you. Our intake will include information about your physical discomforts and objectives, as well as some sharing, as much as you are willing, about the pressures and stress of your life. The session will be a blend of multiple integrated modalities (see modalities below). Once you are on the table, I will also take readings from your body itself, where it holds its tension, and muscle memory around emotional events your mind tries to bury. My nurturing energies will align yours to your natural state of comfort and well-being.
After our session, I provide guidance for your ongoing self-care. We will also develop a massage strategy to further satisfy your initial concerns and how I can continue to help in those areas; I will provide recommendations on breathing and stretching techniques to do at home and work that will support you staying connected to your body throughout your daily life.
