For over 15 years I've focused on the anatomy of the body and how it moves in space.  
 

About me...

With extensive knowledge of musculoskeletal health science and injury rehabilitation I help realign your body using massage.  

Using these modalities I balance out muscles. Afterward, I design customized exercises and stretches that will help you with your balance and posture. I also include thermo-therapy using heated towels with aromatherapy, hot rocks, and heated grain compresses.

As a Doula of 8 years, I am also certified in Prenatal and Postnatal massage.  I help ease hip and back pain, carpal tunnel and neck aches, swelling in ankles, and give take home stretches and tips to create more comfort in your body. In Postnatal work I help realign your muscles and organs as your body heals.

I have seen the benefits in my clients lives after helping them align their body, reduce their pain and provide them with genuine relaxation.
