"Loving everything about yourself - even the parts you consider unacceptable - is an act of personal power.
It is the beginning of healing."
I believe that within each of us there lies the strength and wisdom to heal ourselves. It is my goal as a massage therapist to facilitate your healing process by helping you slow down, tune in, and listen to what your body is communicating through informed touch. Massage is a unique experience, a verbal and non-verbal conversation that occurs as the therapist and client work together to release tension and create balance. Because the body is a living, breathing, autobiography that literally carries the story of our life, receiving a massage requires an offering of trust. For this reason, I believe that it is an honor to give massage, it is ultimately an opportunity to create positive change in your life’s unfolding story. It is my goal to make your massage experience as unique as you are!
To this end, I offer an integrative and therapeutic approach to massage and bodywork incorporating Deep Tissue, Neuromuscular, and Swedish techniques throughout each session. Depending on your individual needs and goals, I also offer a structural assessment to evaluate which muscles need more specific attention so as to help correct postural deviations. Gentle stretching and traction are also used to help increase range of motion.
In order to facilitate relaxation and release, I offer herbal Epsom compresses, Moist Heat Therapy, and Aromatherapy using the therapeutic grade Young Living essential oils. Other services include: Hot Stone Massage, the Raindrop Technique, Pregnancy Massage, and Infant Massage Classes.
I am NCBTMB Board Certified (#527030-07), a member of the AMTA (#201789), and I am licensed in the state of Montana (#6585). I graduated from the Brian Utting School of Massage in Seattle, WA with 1000 hours of training in 2006. I am also certified in Prenatal Massage, as an Infant Massage Instructor, and I am a Young Living Independent Distributor.
I look forward to listening with you as your healing journey unfolds!
be present, be well!
