therapeutic massage & bodywork
thoughtful, intuitive, and integrated bodywork located in
Portland, OR and Stevenson, WA
My approach to bodywork is inspired by cultivating a deeper understanding of the connection among our bodies and Earth. While there are many ways to deepen these understandings, I believe that bodywork is truly a special healing experience. I am very interested in what balance means to you, what your goals are, and to build a session to navigate these goals. Each of us is a unique being; our feelings and emotions are dynamic and this is reflected in our physical bodies. My goal as a bodyworker is to listen to you, to meet you where you are, and together, discover what you and your body are most needing.
I draw energy and inspiration through movement, the seasons and cycles, spending time in the garden and the forests, and allowing time for stillness. In my practice, I integrate relaxation, deep tissue, the breath, myofascial release, energy work, and cranial sacral therapy to create a deeply therapeutic experience. My passion for bodywork continues to grow as I bring my life experiences, as well as intuition, into this work.
I value the authenticity and personal connections that bodywork inspires. Each day I get to discover, and I am humbled to know that I will always be learning. I feel truly blessed to have the opportunity to share this work. I believe that when we hold this space for our bodies and our souls, we have the ability to return to our center.
