• Bodywork

    Mens sana in corpore sano

    I am a CA-certified biomechanist, ergonomist, bodyworker, massage therapist, and Reiki Master.

    I also teach classes for dancers on how to avoid and manage pain and stress, and how to live and dance with ease in our unique bodies.

    I have a deep somatic and energetic understanding of bodies and how we live and move in them. My bottom line is listening: I listen to bodies and to people, I am present for them where they are in their lives, and we work together toward optimal health and ease in body, spirit, and mind. I have spent years studying all kinds of bodywork practices, from the ancient (Nuad Boran Thai massage, Qi Gong, and Karate) to the brand new (Zero Balancing, Ortho-Bionomy, and Gyrokinesis). As a dancer myself I also have in-depth personal experience with addressing injury, pain, and physical stress patterns in dancing bodies. I bring the fruits of every bodywork master class I ever took, every yoga mat I ever sat on, and every physical therapy exercise I ever learned into my practice and share this with my clientele, through workshops, group classes, and private bodywork sessions. Please contact me for more information.

     

    Here are some of the modalities that inform my work. After thousands of hours of training, I am certified in many of them and have also taught many of them individually. I prefer to let the situation and the clientele indicate what tool is right for that particular moment, and work with whatever mix is best suited. Please click on each modality to learn more about them and how they can help you live your best life.
