As a Licensed Massage Therapist, I practice a form of active myofascial release to help relieve and prevent tightness and pain. As a Certified Personal Trainer, I help you identify and change harmful movement patterns. The combination helps you find immediate relief and provides you with tools to make that relief last.
Most instances of pain, discomfort and tightness are the result of:
Overuse or injury - which can often be resolved in one or two private sessions, accompanied by self-care.
Habitual misalignment - which requires loosening tightness and changing habits from harmful to good. We help you do that with our mini workshops.
New addition: 30 Minute Workshop for Anyone Who Has Knees. Bring a friend who also has knees.
If you are tired of having to cross your legs before you sneeze to prevent or minimize a sudden bladder leak (however minor it may be), this four week solution can help to reduce or eliminate that problem.
SUI - Stress Urinary Incontinence (the pee sneeze) - is very common and is usually fairly simple to resolve -- without doing hundreds of Kegals, taking drugs, or undergoing invasive surgery. You don't have to "just live with it". Really.
Fearless Sneezing - Four Weeks - $80
Basic preventive maintenance for your body. Minimize injury potential and create more efficient, effective movement habits.
Most of the time, chronic or recurring pain in your low back or hips - and in your knees, neck or shoulders - are your body telling you it isn't happy with your alignment. Starting in the middle - with your pelvis - your center of gravity and your center of mass - we work together in a 4 week workshop to help get you back to where you should be.

If you're looking for help with pain, tightness or discomfort in one area, private or group sessions might be the ticket. I can help with many muscle / joint / connective tissue related issues.
I only do recovery / rehabilitative work and do not offer table or chair massage. There are some excellent Massage Therapists in the area who offer relaxation and therapeutic full body massage. I'm just not one of them.
Private Sessions are $60 for 30 minutes; Group Sessions are $20 per person.
