How much time do we give ourselves? When we’re not at work, we’re driving to work, or thinking about work.
We want to give so much to our partners, our family, our children, our friends. And at the end of the week,
how much time did we gift ourselves? At the end of the month?
All these activities drain us and stress us. We so want to do it right.
The mind has a trick of ignoring this stress by sending it to the body
where it is stored. Quietly. Until some part of the body can’t take it anymore
and the body fails in some small way. An ache. A pain. A loss of free movement.
A change in the way we carry ourselves. Other times a traumatic injury or over-exertion
(trying too hard) triggers the same loss of function. Our bodies become distractions
that keep us from presenting our best selves.
I do not offer spa services: a good nap can leave you temporarily relaxed but
fundamentally unchanged. I focus on what your body needs for the day ... where
the stress and tension have accumulated. As needed, I seek the deep muscles, the trigger
points, the knots that hold your body in mis-alignment. When useful, I
stretch your muscles and show you simple stretches that can keep the stress
from accumulating too rapidly.
I have a passion to help you reach the vibrancy and enthusiasm you desire
in life. At an affordable price. Professional massage need not be a weekly
activity except in rare circumstances. The only regular commitment I ask of
you is to change those activities that brought
your body to its less than desired state. Daily stretches, body awareness,
ergonomic changes are your ongoing commitments to yourself.
Let's work together to establish your physical foundations on which all
other endeavors rely.
