massage therapy bendI specialize in using a blend of massage therapy techniques to enhance an individual’s ability to move and function in daily life and recreation. I use a combination of Deep Tissue Sports Massage, Tuina (Chinese Massage), Structural Bodywork (Releasing and Re-Aligning Myofascia), Fascial Stretch Therapy, and CranioSacral techniques. I design a custom treatment plan for each individual so no one session looks the same.

I strive to meet each client where they are that day. I provide a therapeutic, informative, and healing environment where both client and therapist are involved in learning more about their body and related patterns of dysfunction. I believe clear communication and trust is key to providing the best treatment possible. I specialize in finding imbalances and weak points in the body with assessments such as posture, natural movement, and strength testing, while still providing a relaxing treatment. By uncovering patterns that are resulting in pain and dysfunction we can work together toward achieving balance and ease in your body.


I enjoy working with clients who use their bodies, are active, or are trying to get back into an activity but are experiencing tightness, pain, and need options for enhanced recovery.
