"When I am healed I am not healed alone."

Bodywork is personal. It becomes an intimate relationship between both practitioner and recipient. It is my intention to work closely with you not just on a physical level but one of heart and spirit.
I am deeply committed to holding a sacred space and offer an integrative and holistic approach to healing so that you feel supported and cared for on many levels.
I am professionally certified through the Esalen Institute, the State of California, and the National Certification Board of Therapeutic Massage and Bodyworkers. I've been in practice for 12 years, served as member of the massage crew at the Esalen Institute in Big Sur California and have a private practice in Provincetown MA. where I offer sessions from my home studio, spring through autumn.
Integrative Therapeutic Bodywork
With intuitive guidance& reverence for the physical and energetic bodies, sessions are offered utilizing a unique blend of methods and techniques depending on the needs of each client. Below are the most common modalities of bodywork I integrate into a session.
The foundation of my Bodywork practice was taught to me at the Esalen Institute in Big Sur, California. I creatively utilize this technique through presence based touch, deep listening, nurturing and long flowing strokes to relax & integrate ones body and being in a holistic manner rather than individual parts.
With a special interest and passion for Deep Bodywork, this technique is applied with focused precision and slow, thoughtful consideration for the clients sensory capacity. Deep Bodywork has a profound ability to relieve and introduce healing for chronic to acute physical injury. Through this process, I have experienced for myself and many clients its potential to unbind and heal deep emotional traumas that may have been stored in the body. Deep bodywork is most effective through a series of sessions to allow time for the body to integrate and unbind to access deeper layers of healing through physical, emotional and spiritual levels.
With intention, methodical compression, stretching and movement of the body, I incorporate this ancient style of bodywork into a table massage. Having studied Traditional Thai massage in Chiang Mai, Thailand, it is among the most versatile and effective applications of bodywork.
With emphasis on the subtle body and nervous system, Cranial Sacral is applied using gentle touch and deep listening of the cranium (head), sacral (sacrum) and the spinal column. This technique allows a more direct connection to the nervous system to allow time and space for your bodies own genius to self regulate and regenerate.

Upon confirmation, you'll be welcomed into my home studio on the east end of Provincetown. All sessions begin with a consultation to allow you an opportunity to express your current requests for healing and discuss how we may best work together.
Post consultation is followed by seventy five minutes of hands on treatment. Beginning with an invocation, guided breathwork and the use of aromatherapy to shift to a place of deep receiving. Upon completion I offer a sage ritual (cleansing of energetic body) & you'll have time on your own to resurface and check in with one another before departing.
