Integrated Zero Balancing (ZB):
Using a skilled & precise touch, I assess and treat areas of energetic and structural tension in the body, facilitating whole-body relaxation and alignment. Most clients also go into a deep meditative state of relaxation during the treatment.  After your session you may have better posture, less pain, easier movement, feel lighter, freer, energized and more in tune with yourself.  ZB can be a full body stand-alone session, or I often use it as a base when integrating other therapies, as it has a profound balancing effect that makes any other treatments more effective. Depending on your goals and needs, I may integrate other osteopathic & orthopedic massage techniques, craniosacral therapy, abdominal therapy, or cupping therapy>>read more

Craniosacral Therapy (CST):
When the craniosacral system, which nourishes and protects the central nervous system, is functioning optimally the entire body and mind benefit. Through gentle touch that engages and balances the midline craniosacral system, I support you in slowing down, finding your center, and connecting to your innate health, which allows intelligent somatic processes to arise for healing from the inside out.  I use gentle decompression & unwinding to help release physical restrictions in the system.  I also may use verbal felt-sense awareness and internal imagery techniques to help you become more aware and empowered to release chronic holding patterns, tension, and stress. Clients often report less pain, renewed vitality in their bodies, and even profound inner awakenings. Supports chronic pain relief, personal growth, self healing, and overall wellbeing.    >>read more

Abdominal Therapy:
Mayan Abdominal Massage and visceral manipulation gently treats connective tissue restrictions in the visceral core which can often be the root cause of pain and dysfunction elsewhere in the body. Helps reduce scar tissue and adhesions from surgery, inflammation or injury, can reduce congestion and bloating, helps align spine and pelvis, helps many digestive, urinary, and reproductive issues, can correct hiatal hernias, very helpful for balancing the abdomen after childbirth.  >>read more

Lymphatic & Myofascial Therapy with Massage Cupping:
Massage Cupping is a modern CAM application of ancient cupping practice that is focused on moving fluids (lymphatic drainage and detox) & relieving myofascial restrictions in the body tissues. This therapy often gets impressive and FAST results whenever you have “issues in your tissues.”  It uses negative pressure vacu-therapy massage that is extremely effective, yet generally painless and relaxing.   Depending on the goals for the session, Cupping can be used to reduce water retention and bloating, a comfortable and pleasant deep tissue treatment for fast pain relief, reducing chronic muscular tension, deep adhesions, and for loosening and improving the appearance of scar tissue.  >>read more
