I have been helping people experience more relaxed and pain free lives through therapeutic massage and bodywork practice for over 17 years. A native of Germany and a graduate of the Esalen Institute, Big Sur, California, I am NCBTMB Board Certified in Therapeutic Massage and licensed in Washington and Indiana. I combine a number of techniques, including Deep Tissue (neuromuscular and fascial release work), Triggerpoint, Stretching, Cranio-sacral, Reiki, Position Release, Hot Stone, Swedish and Esalen-style massage. I draw from each of these modalities, intuitively weaving them together to create a custom session for your needs. I consider it a privilege to be present with you and facilitate your process toward health, healing, and well-being.
I have practiced yoga since 1998 and taught Vinyasa style classes since 2009. This has expanded my understanding of the body and the use of therapeutic movement, which can be integrated as self-care for clients who want to participate more fully in their own healing process.
My interests include traveling by VW camper on extended road trips to nature’s treasures, sailing & kayaking, rock climbing, photography, spiritual development, homesteading skills, natural foods and most especially, spending time with my two children.
