After practicing for over 10 years now, I’ve come to appreciate massage as one of the best gifts of life – an extraordinary art and dance rooted in Loving-Kindness. I marvel at the wisdom of the body and the power of touch to heal and integrate the whole person. Massage can increase performance, circulation and wellbeing, while reducing toxicity and stress. And of course it just plain feels good! I genuinely love helping people feel good, so its a mutual benefit. 🙂 Simply relaxing should not be underestimated, as being in the parasympathetic nervous system of rest and digest is where the magic of our body’s innate healing capacity really takes place.
I like to encourage my clients to engage in a combination of mindfulness, breathwork and Qi gong in collaboration with the bodywork, in order to maximize the benefits. Plus you’ll go home with a new tool to stay grounded and “charge your battery” with.
The head/neck/shoulders are my specialty areas of the body to do focused deep tissue work for people with these particular issues.
**I cannot see someone for both counseling and massage work, it has to be one or the other.
