I am a certified and licensed massage therapist, specializing in two very unique energy-based therapies:  The John F. Barnes’ Myofascial Release Approach® and Craniosacral Therapy. I treat adults 18 years and older. If you are pregnant please do not book a session. Seek out a therapist with extensive prenatal training. 


Living with chronic pain and trauma is a healing journey. As you integrate supportive, healing resources you can bring balance & harmony into your life, and find greater ease & joy. The John F. Barnes Myofascial Release Approach® is unlike any other type of Myofascial Release in that there is NO FORCE into the body. This approach is about connecting with your body to allow tension to release, rather than pushing through the tissue with force. This is a subtle energy therapy that honors the body in every way.


Please take a moment to browse through my website. The Myofascial Release and Craniosacral Therapy pages provide brief information about each therapy. I would be honored to be part of your healing journey.


Thanks for visiting!
