Welcome to my massage practice! My practice may possibly take a different form from other massage practices you have experienced. Here is how I usually structure a session. First, after you arrive at my office, I allow ample time for you to discuss with me any health concerns or problems you may be experiencing that could be helpful to be considered and addressed in our work together. I am always committed to doing whatever I can, within the scope of my massage practice and professional licensing guidelines, to support you in attaining your own goals for health, pain-relief, and healing. Then, before the massage begins, I will formulate a possible treatment plan for the session which will be based on my knowledge and experience combined with your input and I may also put to use a bit of intuition and the results of my "muscle-testing". This will lead to an experience of a massage modality of your choice, such as Swedish massage, deep tissue massage, Asian massage and bodywork, or even a wonderful combination of more than one of them. Please note that many styles I practice allow you to remain fully clothed if that is more comfortable for you for any reason. All my techniques are soothing and therapeutic and I am also careful to adjust my pressure to be as light or deep as you want it to be. I always do my best to make each session both enjoyable and therapeutic.

I am also a member of the American Massage Therapy Association (AMTA) which supports licensed massage therapists, in general:
