Certified Massage Therapist
In the process of healing and awakening to compassion I found myself moved to learn and practice massage therapy. Beginning my practice at Irene’s Myomassology Institute awoke a new passion in me. Through integrating mindfulness and bodywork and drawing from such modalities as myofascial release, reiki, shiatsu, reflexology and a host of other techniques, each session I offer is intuitive and fresh. If you’re suffering chronic pain or seeking help in correcting postural dysfunction, I offer therapeutic massage and deep tissue work. If you’re feeling swayed by day to day life and looking to come back into balance, I offer relaxation and a healing touch to instill peace and wholeness.
Certified Massage Therapist
I truly believe that the body has an innate wisdom to heal itself – your body wants to work for you but sometimes there is a disconnection or dis-ease stored in the body. I graduated from Irene’s Myomassology Institute in 2015 and studied with the Arvigo Institute in 2016 to bring this work that has been so helpful in my own healing to my clients. My massage style is about listening to the body, using intentional strokes and therapeutic modalities to hold a safe and sacred space for your healing work. The Arvigo Techniques of Maya Abdominal Therapy® are external and non-invasive, done on the abdominal area and low back. Our goal with this work is to manually reposition reproductive organs, improve blood flow to digestive organs, and encourage unrestricted flow of lymph and energy. I offer the Arvigo Techniques of Maya Abdominal Therapy® to men, women and children and so look forward to giving you another tool to guide your body through healing.

Yoga Instructor and Receptionist
My journey of yoga started in 2010 with a calling through sound, and the practice of Kirtan, one of the 8 limbs of yoga. I was drawn towards classical Indian music and how chanting moved energy throughout the body. Ever since, with much gratitude for my teachers passing on a strong lineage of wisdom, I have studied and practiced many different yogic techniques including asana, pranayama and meditation. This has guided me deeper into my authentic self, grounding me deeper into the whispers of the mystical teachings of our natural world, leading me toward studies in Ayurveda & Herbalism, as well as many expressive art forms. Ultimately, I was called to the motherland of yoga to experience her full power, embarking on a 3-month journey throughout ancient mama India. This challenged those teachings and depths within myself in the most divine ways. Here I am now to share with you a journey through the teachings of yoga, as it is fluidly woven together with grace and understanding into our everyday lives.
