I facilitate the body’s innate capacity to do its own healing. My work is rooted in Structural Integration, Neuro-Muscular Reprogramming, Connective Tissue release, the harmonic stretch and flow of Thai Massage, and the subtleties of embodied Somatics practices. As a professional dancer and artist, I bring my experiential understanding of the creative, moving body to all of my healing work.

 

I began my bodywork studies in 2012 at the Pacific Center for Awareness and Bodywork on Kauai, a pioneering school which combines psychotherapeutic tools and presence-based awareness with structural bodywork. My work is also highly informed by Axis Syllabus: a community of dancers researching bio-mechanics, fascial release, and structural integrity through dynamic movement. Along with NMR, I have studied Yoga Therapeutics with the Shakti School of Yoga in Boulder Creek, Osteopathic Thai Massage in Southeast Asia, and Energy Medicine in Berkeley with my teacher Lynda Caesara.

I restore structural integrity to the body by releasing underlying patterns and compensations. I believe that healing is a collaborative journey between client and therapist in which the work that happens on the table re-patterns movement and postural distortions that are the root of pain. Being fully present each moment to you and your body’s needs, my work will ultimately create lasting freedom in mobility and expression for you. My strong, intelligent, and intuitive touch allows you to release limitations and expand into freedom and full awareness.
