I am a professional massage therapist certified in Swedish, Deep Tissue, Shiatsu, Polarity Therapy, and Reiki. I studied at the Institute of Psycho-Structural Balancing, The Heartwood Institute, The Massage School of Santa Monica, as well as studying with other Reiki Masters and healers. I offer very intuitive work seeking out the areas you need attention most. I can focus my work on chronic or immediate muscle, tendon, or fascia tissue pain or I can work on simply smoothing out the entire body through the tissue and energy systems. The energy work has the potential to sink you into a deep theta brain wave state. The theta brain wave state is a deep meditative state where profound healing and peace can occur. My pressure can be as light or as deep as you would like. I can also focus more on the energy work or more on tissue soreness depending on what you are looking for. I am trained and certified with fifteen years of experience. Exceptional Bodywork for the Connoisseur! Please visit my website for more info. There is a link on the toolbar to the left. Also, if you would like updates from me you can like my Facebook Page. The link is to the right as well. Thanks!

Below is a list of the modalities I offer with a description of what they are.
Swedish Massage or Circulatory Massage is a lighter pressure massage that affects the top layers of tissue increasing oxygenation in the bloodstream, reducing stress, and soothing stiff muscles.
Shiatsu is a modality that uses pressure to affect and engage points on the meridian lines as illustrated in traditional Chinese medicine. Different from acupuncture, fingers are used instead of needles to affect the flow of energy or Qi. Some areas are considered “jitsu” where energy is concentrated and stagnant. This appears as knots and tightness. These areas require smoothing out to release the stuck energy. The converse areas are called “kyo” where energy is deficient or missing and are seen as holes that ache and cause pain deeper under the surface. These points require direct pressure to draw energy into them and give them strength to halt the pain. The combination creates a body that's in balance and harmony.
Deep Tissue Massage uses slower and deeper strokes that reach sub layers of muscle and fascia tissue. Deep Tissue Massage helps to realign connective tissue and the deeper muscle layers in order to alleviate chronic pain.
Reiki is a Japanese technique that uses the body's natural life force energy to promote healing and eliminate stress. Reiki affects the body, emotions, mind, and spirit creating deep relaxation and feelings of security and well - being.
Pola rity Therapy-
Polarity Therapy is a technique based on universal principles of energy that was developed by Dr. Randolph Stone. Polarity therapy addresses the health of the mind, body, and spirit by using the energy in the hands to affect the body's field of energy. This technique releases tension and energy blocks.
