“The gateway to our feelings is the physical body, the key is the breath.

Breath is the bridge between all levels of awareness: mental, physical, emotional, and spiritual.” Gilles Marin

Neuromuscular Therapy for Chronic and Acute Pain

Client centered,  compassionate and intuitively guided bodywork for pain relief. 

With over 25 years of experience, I skillfully guide your body to release and realign into balance. I work with clients who suffer from headaches including migraines, hip pain such as sciatica, cervical spine pain, foot pain, TMJ disorder, and many other pain and stress related complaints. I have extensive experience in treating those with injuries, post-surgical complications, and stress related dis-ease, including anxiety and nervous tension. 

5 Elements Work

Chi Nei Tsang Internal Organ Massage

Based in 5 element theory of Chinese Medicine, this belly treatment addresses a number of digestive dis-orders as well as the nervous system. Examples include; infertility, IBS, diverticulitis, constipation, anxiety and panic disorders, withdrawal from pain medication, PTSD, and stress induced insomnia.

It is a nourishing treatment with breath work that soothes the nervous system.

Healing Foods, Herbal Education and Referrals

After an initial consultation I can help you come up with an ideal whole food diet that includes healing herbs and supplements based on 5 element theory, traditional herbal medicine, and nutritional healing. I also offer a wide referral network of local acupuncturists, herbalists, and alternative medicine practitioners to support more specific healing needs.

Complementary Therapies

I’m happy to offer three complementary therapies that can be integrated into your bodywork treatment or added on as an extra. Cupping, Tsuboki Japanese Face Massage, and Zen Shiatsu are all based in Traditional Chinese Medicine and/or 5 Element Theory.

Cupping

Cupping is an ancient and effective modality used to release adhesions and help remove toxins from the body. It moves stagnant energy from painful and stressed areas using glass or silicone cups to create suction and bring blood and other fluids closer to the surface.

Tsuboki includes a deep neck massage, work on over 40 acupressure points on the face, lymphatic drainage, and grounding. Rejuvenating and relaxing, this treatment is indicated for sinus issues, jaw pain, problems due to computer use, headaches, and general stress from overthinking and mental strain. It can also be a stand alone treatment.

Zen Shiatsu

Zen Shiatsu is used to bring balance to the energetic body and the expression of the 5 elements in it.  Nourishing and/or dispersing, pointwork is integrated throughout your bodywork session based on our interview and an assessment of your hara-which is located in the belly. Zen Shiatsu can also include passive stretching movement.
