Massage Therapy


Massage therapy can benefit almost every system in the body and can work on the psychological level as well.

 


There is growing scientific evidence relating to the effectiveness of massage. 

I offer several different styles of massage therapy, and they all share some incredible benefits.

On the emotional level massage may:

My introduction to massage practice was in Hawaiian Lomi-Lomi and it is from this foundation that I base my massage style. I have since then explored other massage styles and will use aspects from all these different practices to create a treatment that best serves you.
