As a massage therapist and bodyworker, I practice a whole-body treatment based approach when helping clients reach their health and performance goals. I’m fortunate to have studied from both Eastern and Western philosophies as well as spent 3 months dissecting cadavers with medical students, which allows me to bring a unique blend of therapeutic strategies with anatomical depth to help the my sessions.
I specialize in assessing and correcting muscle imbalances, mobility restrictions, myofascial pain, and stress-holding patterns. With a background in weightlifting, yoga, and personal training, combining manual therapies to help clients feel and move with ease is my number one goal. As an avid hiker, backpacker, and trail-runner, I especially enjoy working with those who also share a passion for the outdoors. I know first-hand what it feels like to cover long-distance miles, carry a heavy pack, or work on a wildland fire crew. With extensive study in muscle imbalances, I have been able to help clients who have suffered from chronic orthopedic issues such as hip, knee, lower back, and neck pain.
I enjoy learning from each and every client of how their body responds to certain therapies and what patterns they fall into which lead to dysfunction. I strive to keep an open mind, listen to my clients, and provide high-quality professional treatments every time. Maintaining a healthy lifestyle and managing stress through massage therapy, movement, breathing, and nature have changed my life and I’m excited to share those gifts with others. I believe practicing and studying in the field of massage therapy, movement, and healing will be a continuous lifelong endeavor full of reward and purpose.
