Bodywork

claire 2010 pic verticalI specialize in an intuitive blend of Deep Tissue, Shiatsu, Reiki, Swedish, Hot Stone, and Sports Massage to suit the unique needs of each client, using trigger point therapy and myofascial or Hot Stone techniques to enhance the depth of my work as needed. Integrating Western and Eastern approaches to massage and health along with yoga and meditation feels natural to me and it’s how I live my life. Over my 16 year practice, I have developed a unique approach that is both intuitive and scientific, nurturing and empowering, healing for the mind, body and spirit.

Sessions encompass not only the hands-on massage, but time for relaxed intake and pre-chat to inform the session, and self-care instruction to allow you to continue the healing at home between sessions. The post-massage time may include custom yoga asana / stretching sequences, in-home ergonomic assessment and guided meditation or meditation instruction for stress relief.
