With hands that "listen" I work with the client to find the "right"
pressure, transforming tight muscles while allowing space for
the tissue to fully relax. The effect is often one of a therapeutic,
nurturing, and profoundly relaxing experience. My background
as a ballet and modern dancer contributes to my kinesthetic
understanding of the muscles and connective tissue as I work
not only at the site of pain or tightness, but also muscle groups
that may be pulling in the opposite direction. The muscle and
tendon connections around joints are also areas that receive
particular attention in my sessions. I strive to educate my
clients: offering suggestions for stretches and other practices they can do at home, as well as other health care modalities/massage styles that they may find helpful. The intention and foundation of my work is to invite the client's attention and presence to their body, a feeling of integration, of "catching up" to oneself, a restful haven for body and spirit.
