The Balanced Body series can help you restore your natural alignment in gravity and get you free from the aches, pains, stresses, and tension that are holding you back.
I am a board-certified Structural Integration (S.I.) practitioner ready to support you in exploring and releasing patterns of injury, stress, trauma, and pain so that you can live the life you want to live.
For me, working with people is about building a partnership. My practice combines Structural Integration, movement education, and human connection. Each session offers specialized, therapeutic bodywork and movement to balance and organize your body to be more efficient, adaptable, and pain-free.
I look forward to working with people who want to use this experience as the next step in their own well-being.
Many with chronic pain issues seek Structural Integration for relief and change from their current experience.
Many people come to find more flexibility and energy in their bodies.
Others come to rehabilitate an injury, or to do pre-hab before surgery/rehab after surgery.
Many people use Structural Integration to help correct poor posture that is worsening with age or to prevent poor posture from becoming permanent.
Athletes, dancers, musicians, and others who work with their bodies use Structural Integration to improve performance, avoid injury, and extend their careers.
Many parents bring their children and teens to help support them through the process of growing up.

I follow all health and safety protocols to protect the health of my clients and the community; COVID-19 protocols are no different. I am vaccinated and wear a mask during the sessions. There is a window that is cracked for negative pressure in the room. I have a HEPA filter running at all times. I clean and sanitize between clients.
If you have had contact with someone found positive for COVID-19 or if you have any of the symptoms, I will work with you to reschedule your appointment.

The full benefit of this work is best experienced through the Balanced Body series but I suggest making an appointment for one session to see how you feel about the work and you can decide from there.
Though both include hands-on bodywork, Structural Integration work focuses on whole-body alignment including changes in your posture, movement, and physical/emotional experience through education, awareness, and therapeutic touch. The focus is on how you relate with your physical experience as a whole person—rather than on any particular body part, experience, or state of mind.
Pain is never the goal; in fact, it can be counterproductive. My goal is to partner with you to find the amount of pressure that is both comfortable and will encourage a process of release that offers the beneficial and enduring results you are looking for.
As there is more movement involved in Structural Integration sessions than other types of massage, I recommend underwear/short shorts/loose-fitting athletic shorts and bras/bralettes/bandeaus/loose-fitting tank tops. Combine these suggestions into an outfit that feels the most comfortable for you and your body.
