Touching hands are not like pharmaceuticals or scalpels. They are like flashlights in a darkened room. The medicine they administer is self-awareness. And for many of our painful conditions, this is the aid that is most urgently needed. -- Deanne Juhan, from "Job's Body"
Tension, fatigue and confusion are washed away. With tender persistence, I work as your mind becomes serene, your muscles and bones renegotiate, and your spirit is restored.
I offer everything from relaxation massage to deep tissue work, according to your need and preference. I will probably use essential oils during our time together. If you have essential oil sensitivities please let me know.
Also, I incorporate shiatsu, reflexology and Deep Massage – developed by David Lauterstein – with Swedish massage techniques.
Your session always includes a touch of Reiki.

Reiki (pronounced "Ray-key")
The word Reiki is made of two Japanese words: Rei, which means "God's Wisdom or the Higher Power" and Ki, which is "life force energy." So Reiki is actually "spiritually guided life force energy." -- from Reiki.org
While you will receive Reiki during any of my massage sessions, a concentrated Reiki session is especially effective during emotional upset, major transitions, or if you desire healing and transformation on all levels.
There are a variety of ways you might experience this simple, peaceful energy work. You will probably feel heat from my hands, to start with. Then, you might feel something like electricity flowing through your body. You might see colors, or feel strong emotions. You might feel very relaxed and fall asleep, and when you wake up, think, “Oh I feel much better."
There is no disrobing required for Reiki. I lay my hands along your body in various positions, and the Reiki flows, wordlessly bringing all things back into balance and giving you peace and fresh insight.

I understand that unanticipated events happen occasionally in everyone’s life. Business meetings, project deadlines, flight delays, car problems, snowstorms, and illness are just a few reasons why one might consider canceling an appointment, not to mention COVID-19 (if you think you're in ANY way sick, I do not want to see you! You can cancel w/o fear of fees)
. In my desire to be effective and fair to all of my clients -- and keeping my own needs in mind -- I have adopted the following policies:
1. 24 hour advance notice is required when canceling an appointment (exception: sudden illness, COVID-19 or other emergency). This allows the opportunity for someone else to schedule an appointment.
2. If you are unable to give me 24 hours advance notice you will be charged the full amount of your appointment. A missed appointment that was paid for already, by gift certificate or other means, will be forfeit.
Out of respect and consideration to me and other clients, please plan accordingly.
