Being new to practice, working on lots of different bodies-getting honest positive feedback- and building close relationships with clients, quickly increased her skills and knowledge.
Her passion lies in giving a balanced approach between healing and relaxing, so that each and every session is a complete and well- rounded experience. She incorporates techniques such as swedish, deep tissue, and aromatherapy as well as other treatment techniques to create an experience that’s customized to each individual’s needs, based on their goals and concerns.
I attended East West College of the Healing Arts here in Portland, and graduated in 1999. I have been doing massage full time since 2010 in the Portland area.
My main goal for you is to achieve decreased pain, with increased range of motion and joint mobility. In addition to utilizing the basics of Swedish Massage, I also employ Myofascial Release (MFR) and Lymphatic Drainage (LD). MFR allows me to go deeper into your muscles without necessarily using a deeper pressure. I believe joint mobility is the key to flexibility and movement throughout your body. LD enables me to remove fluid build-up and reduce inflammation you may experience during a course of bodywork, or in your everyday life.
