I use Biodynamic massage as a base for the work I do. Biodynamic massage is a combination of deep Swedish, myofascial release and cranial therapy. It involves taking the time to warm up the tissue while being present with how the inner body is responding. The work can fluctuate from light to deep and deep to light touch. there can be periods of sustained pressure and periods of large inclusive movement. The focus is to help the receivers body guide in the healing process. My role is to be attentive and supportive as the layers of muscles and inner tissues unwind to create a healthier environment.
I am proud to have a long history as a massage therapist. Upon graduating East-West College of the Healing Arts in 1997 I accepted a job in the admissions department helping new students through the enrollment process and teaching introductory classes. While there I continued to take additional classes and workshops to hone my skill. In 2001 I left to work full time at one of Portland original Day spas. I began my private practice in 2005 and have been practicing and evolving as a massage therapist ever since. I am honored that I get to do the work I do. Everyday is new experience.
I accept Personal Injury protection, PIP, for healing post auto accident. I also accept a variety of health insurances. You may have coverage, I can help you find out!
