The focus of my practice is therapeutic and corrective work. It is impossible to schedule the appropriate length of time without knowing more about you and having an idea of why you're coming to see me - so I don't use online scheduling.
The difference between bodywork therapies and massage is that bodywork therapy affects structural changes in the body through the use of various forms of touch therapies, manipulation, movement and/or neuromuscular re-patterning, while massage therapies are systems of structured palpation or movement of the soft tissue of the body.
All of my sessions are customized to best maximize the results you want to achieve, regardless of whether you need stress relief or structural correction.

Therapeutic Massage / Bodyork
Therapeutic massage is a general term that describes any type of massage modality that helps relieve pain, reduce stress, and work on a specific problem—such as a frozen shoulder. People tend to assume therapeutic massage means deep tissue massage, and that they will get a very strong massage. But this is not always the case. Deep tissue massage is great at breaking down scar tissue and getting your blood circulating, but it may not be what you need on a particular day. A good therapist applies the specific techniques and the right amount of pressure to address your needs, and sometimes that’s a lighter touch.
There are several different types of therapeutic massage in addition to deep tissue massage, such as:
- neuromuscular massage
- myofascial massage
- trigger point therapy
- sports massage
- medical massage
I use a combination of techniques depending on what your body needs.
Using a combination of Myoskeletal Alignment Therapy, Ortho-Bionomy, and other advanced techniques, these sessions work to correct postural deviations such as torsioned pelvic girdles, restoring leg length, scoliosis, rotation of the torso and/or pelvic girdle, returning hips and shoulders to equal height, improving Dowager's Hump, improving spinal curvatures, etc. These are outcome based sessions - sessions end when your body has accepted its maximum correction.
