I am a Los Angeles-based massage therapist with a focus on deep tissue, myofascial release, and trigger point therapy. Licensed in California, Oregon, and Arizona, I earned my degree in 2010 from East West College of the Healing Arts in Portland, OR with a focus on myofascial release, deep tissue massage, and trigger point therapy.
I believe individuals function better in the world when we take an active part in our health by practicing self care. Maintaining our bodies with adequate nutrition and hydration, getting enough exercise, getting enough rest, recognizing how our emotions affect us, spending time in nature, making art, and receiving bodywork are ways we can contribute to our own well being. By providing massage and bodywork, I feel that I am doing my part to help our expansive community function as best we can. Massage helps lower stress, improves flexibility, improves muscle function and tone, improves circulation and helps to bring our bodies and minds into balance. Massage can also help release emotional and mental grief or anger stored in our physical bodies. Touch encourages us to be interconnected with humanity and with ourselves on the most basic level, and allows us to be more caring and productive in a chaotic world.
I provide a space that allows my clients to express what they are going through and to be understood - not only on an emotional level, but also on a physical level.
