As a premedical student, I am able to address issues from a clinical perspective informing clients about the science behind the massage, and as a classically trained pianist and dancer, my bodywork embodies a blissfully relaxing flow. My massages balance rejuvenating relaxation with therapeutic results.
I love seeing how the work I do has such a positive impact on others. I am constantly in awe at the power of massage to treat so many ailments, which has allowed many of my clients to avoid or decrease the need for potentially harmful drugs and surgeries. I also harbor a sincere academic/philosophical curiosity for anatomy as a premedical student so I am enjoying the process of learning more about the body--I feel as though I could learn about and work with human antomy my whole life and still not know everything there is to know. Seems I'm destined to be a forever-student.

When you first book a session, you will receive a link for an online intake form in your e-mail inbox which includes some questions about your health history. After welcoming you to the space and a brief walking tour of the studio we will arrive at the wellness room. There we will have a brief consult reviewing your intake form and discussing your massage needs and preferences. Then we will establish your familiarity with the general format of massage. My clientele have varying experiences with massage. Some of my clients are seasoned massage pros, while others are first-time recipients. If you've never received a professional massage, I will spend some time before the session explaining the draping procedures to demonstrate how your security and comfort is to be maintained. Then I will step out of the room to give you some privacy to position yourself comfortably on the massage table beneath the blanket. Throughout the session you should know that you have complete control of your session--if at any time you would like additional or lighter pressure, or if you want more work in a particular area, you should feel welcome to provide feedback as needed. During the session, your most important priority is just to relax. Please let me know how I can help you achieve optimal comfortability.

Massages are $90 per hr or $130 per 90 minutes. However I do also offer a membership to those that want to save money on regular massage sessions. Memberships are $70 per month and entitle members to a massage a month. Members also receive exclusive member pricing for any additional massages that month (for an additional $70).
My clientele is very diverse--all genders, ages, cultures, and walks of life. Some of my clients see me for general relaxation and regular body maintenance, but many seek massage as a complementary therapy for a variety of needs including compromised posture; pain or tension in the body; emotional or psychological symptoms (anxiety, depression, insomnia, etc...) among a variety of other musculoskeletal or nervous system pathologies. My specialities include resolving upper back/neck/shoulder pain and tension, fibromyalgia treatments, and prenatal massage.
In the field of professional massage in this country, there are two large umbrella categories: relaxation, or Swedish, massage (most commonly received in spa settings) and therapeutic massage (which is often performed at wellness centers, chiropractic offices, and sports therapy environments). Oftentimes corrective massage therapists forget that relaxation is still a very important aspect of therapeutic massage. My style of massage, while therapeutically oriented, is integrated within a smooth flow that offers an opportunity for blissful relaxation while treating musculoskeletal or nervous system pathologies.
