Welcome! I’ve been a massage therapist for over 15 years, helping countless numbers of people reduce stress and chronic pain, recover from injury, and find healing and vitality in life.
With extensive training and expertise in Neuromuscular Therapy, Orthopedic Massage, Myofascial Release, Sports Massage, Myotherapy (Trigger Point Work), Deep Tissue, Swedish, Active Facilitated Stretching, Pregnancy and Infancy massage. I continue to deepen what I know about the body, from top teachers in the field like, Tom Myers, Eric Dalton, Whitney Lowe, Bonnie Pruden, and from each and every person that lies on my table, from infants to 90-plus year olds.
Mine is a client-based model. That means, I take the time to listen, ask questions, and assess the whole person, in your day-to-day life, in all it’s stresses and joys, while applying an in-depth knowledge of anatomy and physiology. Because of this, I often hear a “thank-you!” from my own clients, not simply because the massage feels great, but because my focus is on learning about you and your body’s needs, in the very unique life you live.
I bring to my massage practice, an in-depth background in movement and mindfulness therapies, including a yoga certification (E-RYT 200) as well as extensive training in breathing and mediation practices. From 2006-2015, I worked as part of the wellness team at the ESPN world headquarters in Bristol, CT, both as a massage therapist and mindfulness coach, working with some of the top athletes in the world, as well as with the numerous office workers dealing with computer-related repetitive stress issues. I am a licensed and nationally certified massage therapist and an AMTA member. A graduate of the Center for Massage Therapy’s intensive certification program in Connecticut with hours also from Cortiva Institute in Boston, I’ve received over 700 hours of specialized education in anatomy, physiology, kinesiology, therapeutic movements, and massage therapy. I also hold a Masters from Yale Divinity School.
