Massage relieves stress and tension, improves circulation, provides pain relief, increases joint mobility, and supports healing from injuries or after surgery. Massage can decrease symptoms of anxiety and depression, provide a felt-sense of well-being, and overall improve your quality of life. I utilize a variety of modalities including deep tissue, Swedish massage, trigger point work, and acupressure, and I may integrate craniosacral work into sessions as desired. Sessions can be focused on specific areas, such as your neck and back, or can be full-body. Appropriate draping is used to ensure your privacy and comfort. I will work with you to find a depth of pressure that is both effective and comfortable to you.
I provide massage for cyclists who participate in Cycle Oregon during the yearly Classic Ride, an incredible week-long ride through various parts of the beautiful state of Oregon, and I also work on occasion with the healing arts team at Breitenbush Hot Springs Retreat Center. I teach a massage workshop twice yearly at Circle of Caring, a renewal program and weekend retreat for healthcare professionals, held at UCLA's Lake Arrowhead Conference Center. Additionally, I have trained as an infant massage educator and provide infant massage instruction to parents.
