A patient's comfort is the most important aspect of a session and while the Health Intake & Consent Form gives you the opportunity to share your reason for choosing my services, we will also discuss your specific needs and level of comfort prior to the session. While I do verbally communicate and demonstrate how e.g. muscles, tendons, ligaments and the skeleton relate, during the hands-on part of the session, I equally value the benefits of working in silence and anticipate your feedback to this regard as well. As I work on the physical conditions presented, I aim to elicit a somatic (cellular) awareness to the body.
At the start of a session, I typically incorporate a brief posture analysis to best customize the treatment to meet your specific goals. Accordingly, I then apply the hands-on part through a combination of massage, somatic movement therapy and stretching techniques. If you like, to make the most of a treatment in support of any long term self-care aspirations, I offer common sense advice on ways to adjust your individual movement patterns. A session's effectiveness then, can be valued by an improved 'ergonomic functioning' during routine activities, such as sitting, standing, walking, exercises at the gym, dance or yoga practice, sports activity, etc.
If this resonates with your interests, please add a note about your specific needs when you book an appointment via the Appointment Book. You can already preview and fill out the online Health Intake & Consent Form or do so at the clinic.

The inclusion of Somatic Movement Therapy and Active Isolated Stretching into my practice is proving to support both clients' and my own aspirations. Descriptions on these modalities are on the Therapy Variety page and will be expanded over time.
Based on extensive training and nineteen years of hands-on experience, I remain committed to providing the highest quality of professional care in all aspects of treating patients.
In order to maintain a sustainable practice and serve each individual's therapy needs as well as my own professional aspirations, I have redefined my specific services:
Somatic Movement Therapy: If you wish to resolve an acute or chronic condition your body is experiencing, Somatic Movement Therapy offers the necessary awareness to elicit lasting changes, either in and of itself or along with massage and/or stretching.
Active Isolated Stretching: This highly effective method of stretching can be more remedial than the soft tissue manipulation obtained in massage. A combination may be indicated, depending on specific conditions of muscles, tendons, ligaments and overall movement patterns.
Massage therapy: Among the better known and more popular forms of bodywork, my style has an educational and participatory approach, please see the descriptions on the Therapy Variety page.
Massage for Couples: This Having taught formal workshops in the past, I still enjoy sharing the art of performing massages. If you already give each other mini massages and would like to learn more, a two hour session can be a great experience. Typically, couples learn the tricks of the trade quickly and, often already naturally skilled, benefit by receiving a boost of confidence in learning the specific techniques covered.
As always, I greatly appreciate all past, current and future clients ! Each person offers a wealth of insights supporting my ongoing explorations into the ever-expanding realm of therapeutic bodywork.
Thank you for reading.
