Welcome to my website. I hope that you find it informative and perhaps an incentive to schedule your own massage and bodywork session.
Since Spring 2015, I have operated my massage business from my Carrboro home. For 7 years prior, I was located in downtown Carrboro. I am happy working from home, and my clients have told me they prefer it to my old office. I am easy to find, and the neighborhood is quiet and friendly. Working from home necessitates that I require a referral in order to schedule you.
I also provide massage on-site at Carolina Meadows, a continuing care residential community in Chapel Hill. Massage can be particularly helpful and welcome as we age, and working with the residents at Carolina Meadows is a continually rewarding experience for me. I offer Carolina Meadows residents a small discount.
For many years I worked at Structure House, a residential weight loss facility in Durham, where people from all over the country (and other countries!) learn to incorporate diet and exercise in order to maintain a healthy lifestyle.
I offer a variety of bodywork modalities including Swedish and myofascial (deep tissue) massage. Licensure in North Carolina requires that I take many hours of continuing education. Some of the workshops I have attended include medical massage, trigger point therapy, acupressure, hot stone work, Chinese cupping, Healing Touch, osteoarthritis massage, lymphatic drainage, foot reflexology, and external colon massage with castor oil. Most recently I had an introduction to "Specific Neuromuscular Reset Techniques." Associated with muscle testing, these techniques are quite phenomenal, and I plan to further my studies in this area with Arlene Green of Chapel Hill.
I can call upon whatever combination of techniques seems appropriate depending upon your needs at the time, and hopefully will send you home with some self-care resources as well (heat, cold, specific stretches, etc.).
Most every massage will include joint mobilization to enhance the production of synovial fluid, the lubricant of our joints.
I take the utmost care to provide a safe and nurturing environment, and one in which your privacy is honored. With every session you may expect to enjoy a clean and peaceful treatment room, a heated table fitted with all-cotton linens, hydrating scent-free organic massage cream, and soothing music. I have a number of energy healing techniques I can call upon as well, always with no additional charge.
