Hello, beautiful soul. It’s nice to meet you.

I am a massage therapist focused on Craniosacral Therapy.

Craniosacral therapy (CST) is a gentle, non-invasive form of manual therapy which aims to enhance the body’s physiological processes. In simpler terms, CST supports your own natural healing ability- which is what sets it apart from the Western style of medicine that we are used to.

John E. Upledger, co-founder of the Upledger Institute and one of the forefathers of craniosacral therapy as it is known today, believed incredible healing could take place if we could join forces with our innate ability to self-correct. With over 15 years of experience as a manual therapist, I hold that same belief. Despite all that science and medicine has discovered, the human form still retains some mystery, and one of the most amazing qualities it has is the tendency towards homeostasis- balance. Think of all we could accomplish if we could collaborate with a system that is exhausted, confused, or diseased and provide a helping hand.

Throughout our lives, stress, injury and trauma often create confusing layers of compensation and holding patterns, which need to be addressed one at a time- from the outside, inwards. The intent I hold with every session is to provide your body what it needs for support in that very moment.
