Life is hard on bodies, a little care and compassion goes a long way both physically and mentally. A good massage not only makes your body feel better, it releases toxins, floods your body with positive energy, promotes healing and enhances mobility. Each body is different so I have many ways to approach treating what is hurting and slowing you down. From basic Swedish massage to cupping and myofascial release, I can find a way to improve the function of your body.
