I graduated with honors from the Boulder College of Massage Therapy in 2006. Over the years, I have learned that the root of the problem is rarely the one spot where we feel pain. It’s never just one spot. In my experience, standard deep tissue massage is at times not enough to create sufficient relief. I take a whole body approach integrating a variety of hands-on styles of bodywork for lasting relief. My deep curiosity for the body has led me to many continuing education courses from Myofascial Release, Manual Lymphatic Drainage, to Scar Tissue Therapy, Visceral Manipulation and human dissection labs. These courses have given me a strong sense of anatomy and physiology, guiding my work sessions for lasting relief. 

 

I love sharing information and helping clients gain more body, posture and breathing awareness in a supportive and educational atmosphere. My hope is to encourage each of my clients to have a more active role in their own wellness program.
