I am honored to serve so many different people through my touch work. Each person who puts their trust in me is my teacher.
As we age (the inevitable process that begins at birth), we collect stories and memories throughout our lives. Each body holds that physical and emotional history that releases and relaxes as their bodies let go during a massage or bodywork session. That collection of information is not only stored in the brain but in the cells, the tissues, and the muscles of the body. Letting go of what no longer serves us, and holding on to that which benefits us or protects us, is the ultimate goal, though it is not always easily attainable. Sometimes it just takes time, trust, space, patience and compassion. By working with me, I will help you to begin to be more present for yourself and to improve your ability to honor yourself. Only then can you let go of things you are holding onto that are no longer serving you. This "letting go" will enable you to be there more fully for those you care about as well as be better able to find and embrace your life's true passions.
