"It may be a misuse of the term, but I imagine anyone who can stay heartfelt and relatively heart open in this world a true warrior." -Jeff Brown I spend a lot of time thinking about things like- collective, intergenerational and complex trauma, brain science, pain science, cultural competance and bias-particularly within the healthcare system, chronic pain, all of the "isms" (racism, sexism, sizeism, ableism, ageism etc) and am forever learning to walk the path of authenticity, vulnerability and humility. I also spend as much time in the woods and mountains as I can, and fail miserably at providing the cat with enough attention. My training and experience have included fascial release, craniosacral techniques, spa treatments, cupping, trauma-informed care, deep tissue massage, chronic illness and pain, injury recovery, and I am a former instructor at East West College of the Healing Arts. I particularly enjoy bringing relief to those living with chronic pain and facilitating downregulation of the nervous system in all of those living in high-stress scenarios. Nearly every discomfort will be exacerbated by stress and thoughtful massage is one of the best ways to relieve it! You can expect awareness, attention and mindful communication woven into each session, as we work with your goals to connect with your nervous system and work collaboratively to improve your quality of life. It will be my honor to work with you- let's together find a more joy & ease-filled reality!
