Professionally, I have been fine-tuning my powerfully effective offering of bodywork for over 10 years. Blending a practical understanding of anatomy, body mechanics, and holisitic health with the fields of meditation, mindfulness, and creative movement, I provide a deeply soothing and satisfying session for my clients.
I am a graduate of East West College in Portland, Oregon. This institution produces high quality, respected therapists in both medical and alternative health fields. My novel approach to Deep Tissue works with the body, rather than fighting or forcing. This approach is compassionate, reduces post-massage soreness and provides great benefit in little time.
I offer energy work throughout my sessions which is integral to the profound benefits of my style – nourishing body, mind, and soul simultaneously. Creating a warm, beautiful, safe space for you to relax, let go, and transform. Supportive self-care practices from a wealth of personal experience and research are offered post-massage, if desired.
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, creativity, and flow to my sessions.
My own self-care is something I set high value on so that I continually show up to my sessions resourced with great energy. I believe in a world where everyone is supported, nourished, and enjoys a full life.
For fun… things I love or are unique about me!
Portland native. First-gen Czech-American. Country girl at heart, who hikes in white dresses barefoot. Camps wood stove and tipi tent in the winter with my sweetheart, Scott. Laughing! Food is medicine. Experiments! Ethical tourism. Rock hounding. Mushroom gathering. Quiet. Meeting new people in all their uniqueness. 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, The Red Book, Page 231
