About Me

I am a Healer who uses therapeutic massage as one of many tools. I have been in practice for over 15 years, and during this time I have gained a reputation for detective work, by which I mean looking for the source of dysfunction, rather than a more general relax-and-stretch-it-all-out-and we'll-probably-help-it-a-bit approach.  At the same time, I have been consistently told that my presence is nurturing, warm, and respectful.  When you step into my office, expect to be meet with deep contact and to feel a sense of calm and peacefulness - the state in which healing can best occur.
