I am in private practice as a Registered Nurse. Nursing care is intrinsically holistic, and so is stress. Whether something affects us first in the body, heart, mind or spirit, it will eventually affect us in all these levels of ourselves; the best solutions are therefore going to also be whole-self. Bodywork with me has a focus on releasing the congestive physical effects of your stressors, along with encouraging whole-self integration.

If you like, both bodywork and consulting sessions can be combined for you (in separate appointments) in your personal care plan, which we will develop together during your intake session. Clients are also welcome to come in for only bodywork, or only consulting. Please see Scheduling and Fees for that info.

Relaxation Massage is done on a standard massage table, in a lovely private room. You may leave on whatever clothing you want to; I can work with it. Your direction and feedback are welcome, and your comfort and safety are top priority.

Yoga Instruction is based on my several decades of experience; most recently, I taught for nine years at a popular local gym. Restorative Yoga is for opening and deep rejuvenation; Yoga Nidra is the science of profound relaxation; Ananda and Satyananda are the schools I studied with. Strengthening, cleansing and refreshing are on the menu. Currently offering only private instruction. Hear my free Yoga Nidra session here.

Contact Improvisation Dance is a very unique movement art. It is not about steps or following music; it is more about meditating with a practice partner, staying centered, being present. It offers an experience of connection and oneness that is independent of personal relationship. I recommend it for our touch-hunger, loneliness, and scatteredness; it’s very grounding and physical. It is also an excellent practice for couples to deepen connection. Constatic Fusion (my naming) is a blend of CI and Ecstatic Dance, a freeform, music-driven consciousness practice; the most fun I personally know how to have! Private instruction available.
