Massage for pregnant women, active seniors, those seeking to relax

About

 

I believe therapeutic massage can be a powerful tool to help relieve and prevent pain, support healing, increase relaxation, decrease stress, and nurture the body, mind, and spirit. I bring to my work keen technical expertise, a calming presence, and a deep respect for the body and its innate capacity to heal and maintain balance.


It has been an honor to provide massage therapy to my clients for over 20 years. I am licensed with the State of Washington and am a member of the Associated Bodywork & Massage Professionals. My Washington State Massage License is #00011836.


In 1998, I graduated with honors from the Alexander School of Natural Therapeutics in Tacoma. Initially I worked in a day spa and provided onsite massage to medically fragile and terminally ill geriatric clients and then in April of 2000, I opened my private practice. Since graduation I have taken over 550 hours of continuing education, including the prenatal massage certification training, Bodywork for the Childbearing Year. I also attended the University of Puget Sound, graduating in 1977 with a Bachelor of Science degree in Occupational Therapy.


In my life away from the massage table, I love gardening, cooking nourishing meals, walking and hiking in beautiful natural settings, watching indie and foreign films, Seahawks Sundays, and hanging out with family, friends and my sweet cat Lily.
