For over ten years, I have been fine-tuning my powerfully effective style of bodywork. This style blends a practical understanding of anatomy, body mechanics, and holistic health with meditation, mindfulness, and creative movement. My goal is to provide a deeply soothing, satisfying and healing experience for my clients.
My journey in massage therapy began as a student at the East West College of Healing Arts in Portland, Oregon. This institution produces high quality, respected therapists in both medical and alternative health fields. Since completing my initial training in 2009, I have continued to learn and develop my skills through personal study and hands on experience. I have helped thousands heal through my novel style of massage – a style that works with the body rather than against it. This approach is compassionate, reduces post-massage soreness and provides great benefit in little time.
Energy work is integral to my style which nourishes body, mind, and soul simultaneously. I provide a warm, beautiful, and safe space for you to relax. Let go and transform. After your massage, continue your path of healing with suggestions for supportive self-care practices from a wealth of personal experience and current research.
Personally, I have travelled to India twice, four months total, on meditation retreat. I have spent over 15 years of devoted practice in meditation which allows me to bring a highly focused and loving presence to my work. A love of conscious dance adds sensitivity, subtle beauty, and flow to my sessions.
Self-care is of great importance to me. By treating my body and mind with love and respect, I can be fully present for you. I believe in a world where everyone is supported, nourished, and enjoys an energetic, fulfilled life.

A Portland native and first-generation Czech-American. A country girl at heart who hikes barefoot on muddy trails in a white dress. An avid winter camper with a love of wood stoves, tipi tents and my sweetheart, Scott. I value laughing, food as medicine, and curiosity. I advocate for ethical tourism. Other interests include rock hounding, mushroom gathering, and quietude. I love meeting new people in all their uniqueness and meeting you to see how we might inspire greater joy and health in your life!
“Believe me: It is no teaching and no instruction that I give you. On what basis should I presume to teach you? I give you news of the way of this (wo)man, but not of your own way. My path is not your path therefore I cannot teach you. The way is within us, but not in Gods, nor in teachings, nor in laws. Within us is the way, the truth, and the life.” ~ Carl Jung
