My goal as a bodywork and energy work practitioner is to provide a safe and nurturing space for you to come home to yourself. To allow you to feel more comfortable in your own skin by releasing tension and blocks, and assisting you to cultivate a deeper relationship with your body and being. I practice deep listening and loving attention alongside modalities such as warm bamboo deep tissue, myofascial release, trigger point work, Gua Sha, breath work and Reiki.
My entry into the world of bodywork came in 2011 when I enrolled in Cortiva Institute of Massage in Seattle. I had been working as an intuitive healer and spiritual life coach and could see the gap between knowing who we are on the deepest level and embodying that truth in daily life. I now know that embodiment is the key to transformation and living a full and joyful life, and massage is the perfect access point to begin that exploration. All our answers lie within, and if we can clear the layers of holding, stress and tension in the body with our love and presence, those answers can rise to the surface more easily.
I have worked in several different clinics with a wide range of clientele and focuses including pre-and post-natal massage, injury treatment and recovery, subtle energy work, and spa relaxation massage. All of these experiences have led me to cultivate a style of work that is gentle and nurturing yet deep and effective with an awareness of the whole person and the flow of energy in the human system.
We will begin and end each session with a mindful check-in about where you in relation to your body and what you are needing most today. I may invite you to hold an intention for yourself and encourage you to stay present with your breath and the sensations in your body. This helps to ground your energy and open a conscious space within for deeper physical release and inner transformation to occur. I also offer intuitive wellness coaching if you would like to explore how to work with your own energy and make the lifestyle shifts needed to support greater health and wholeness. I specialize in working with highly sensitive people or Empaths who tend to take on the weight of the world to become empowered with practical tools to overcome chronic stress and burn out.
In my spare time I enjoy practicing Yoga, making scrumptious healthy food, spending time in nature, and watching ocean documentaries. I look forward to working with you!
