Mission Statement

“…it is important to recognize that it is not so much that the “healer” heals another person, but rather that he triggers the other person’s own self-healing potential.”
~ Jim Gilkeson, Energy Healing: A Pathway to Inner Growth

Thank you for setting your life's intention for wholeness, growth, awareness and healing by inviting me into your journey.

The foundation of my massage practice is to facilitate an awareness in the body to promote healing, while acknowledging the body’s connection to the mind and spirit, hence bringing about a balance of being.

I’m delighted to be with you to celebrate the joy of living in the body. Together we will find a combination of massage modalities which best matches your needs, through Swedish, Energy Active Craniosacral, Deep Tissue, Hot Stone, Shiatsu and Watsu® Massage, or a creative mix of modalities.

Much love,

“Thank you for loving yourself in this way today.”
