The therapeutic bodywork & massage I offer is based on an educational, participatory approach. While this form aims to feel good and relax, it also instill a more organic sense of the body during your daily activities. Allowing yourself to receive a boost of ergonomic and somatic awareness based on your very own abilities can be profoundly invigorating. You can apply this 'new' body knowledge during a Zumba class, at the gym, on your run or sports game or while sitting at your desk, carrying equipment or standing for hours in front of a classroom. When scheduling an appointment, please add a note in the online scheduler on what your specific needs are.
At the start of a session, I typically incorpoiquesrate a brief posture analysis so I can customize
each treatment to best meet a person's goals. The hands-on part, accordingly, consists of a combination of massage and stretching techniques. If indeed you wish to make the most of your session by gaining insights for self-care, I will offer common sense advice on e.g. stretching & strengthening exercises, which you can easily apply to your personal movement routines.

The inclusion of Somatic Movement Therapy and Active Isolated Stretching into my practice
is proving to support both clients' and my own aspirations. Descriptions on these modalities are on the Therapy Variety page and will be expanded over time.
I greatly appreciate all past, current and future clients ! Each person offers a wealth of insights supporting my ongoing explorations into the ever-expanding realm of therapeutic bodywork.
Based on extensive training and seventeen years of hands-on experience, I remain committed to providing the highest quality of professional care in all aspects of patient treatments.
In order to maintain a sustainable practice by optimally serving each individual's needs
as well as my own professional aspirations, I have redefined my specific services:
Somatic Movement Therapy. If you wish to resolve an acute or chronic condition your body
is experiencing, Somatic Movement Therapy effectively offers the necessary awareness
to elicit lasting changes along with massage and stretching or in and of itself.
Active Isolated Stretching. This highly effective method of stretching can be more remedial than the soft tissue manipulation obtained in massage. A combination may be indicated, depending on specific conditions of muscles, tendons, ligaments and overall movement patterns.
Massage therapy. Among the better known and more popular forms of bodywork, my style has an educational and participatory approach, please see the descriptions on the Therapy Variety page.
Massage for Couples. I have taught formal workshops in the past and enjoy sharing the art
of performing massages. Typically, couples learn specific techniques quickly and, already naturally skilled as well, benefit by receiving a boost of confidence. If you give each other mini massages and like to learn more, a two hour session can be a great experience.
