I work with my clients to create space and flow in the body. I do energetic, intuitive massages that include a myofacial deep tissue base with stretching, joint mobilization, energy work, as needed. Some of my clients call what I do sports massage. I do prenatal massages as well. I have acquired many techniques in my 20 years as a therapist which I utilize as I am guided.
It is my passion. I love feeling the muscles and being able to connect in a way that I am able to relieve tension, stress and pain for my clients so they feel good.

Barb is gifted at massage. I feel so much better now after seeing her on a regular basis. I have much less chronic pain.
I talk to them prior to the massage to learn what they are looking for and what their expectations are. Find out what type of pressure they generally like. If they have had injuries, where are they in the healing if recent. If there is anything I need to avoid - anything they are uncomfortable with. I talk to them about my approach, what my plan is,and then get their agreement.
i check in with my client with throughout the massage to make they are comfortable.
