I am a Certified Massage Therapist (CMT) located in the Haight/Ashbury area and available most days by appointment.Â Take a look at the Services page to see a list of services and prices or the About page to learn more about me.
Whether you are looking to de-stress with wellness massage, treat yourself to a head/foot/hand massage or are looking for clinical massage due to pain, injury, surgery or repetitive stress, you’ve come to the right place.Â About 70% of my business falls under the term “clinical massage” and about 30% is “wellness massage”.Â I offer Swedish, Deep Tissue, Thai/Shiatsu, Myofascail Therapy, Mixed Massage Therapy and Reiki.
I work with the whole person and my approach is collaborative, pragmatic and grounded, using my knowledge of the body as a yoga teacher and a graduate of the National Holistic Institute’s massage therapist program. Â Every session is unique and customized to your needs drawing on many modalities of bodywork as well as a solid understanding of anatomy, physiology and pathology.Â I enjoy keeping my skills current and sharp and am always learning – from both clients and classes such as a cadaver dissection class I took early in 2011.
Bodywork feels good and simultaneously resolves pain, tension, trauma and stress, all of which can inhibit the natural flow of blood, oxygen, nutrients and energy throughout the body.Â This in turn inhibits or slows down the body’s ability to repair and rejuvenate creating a distressed and/or suppressed immune system, “unnatural” holding patterns, decreases in range of motion and a whole host of other joy limiting effects.Â Massage can play a huge role in alleviating such issues and for creating healing not only in the body but in the mind and heart too. Call me or drop me a line and let’s create some space in your body for even more happiness, freedom and love.
