I do Massage Therapy because I value a community in which people are calm, healthy, and use preventative measures for their health.
I moved my business from Hawaii to Boulder in 2011. Coming from Hawaii, I integrate aspects of Lomi Lomi into my massage, using a variety of long strokes and forearm massage. I also combine a variety of deep tissue, sports massage and pressure point techniques with Swedish and Sports Massage to approach the various needs of my clients.
I have been practicing massage for over 20 years and have experience with various modalities. I allow ample time before the massage begins to consult the client about their condition and communicate to understand what the client wants out of the massage. I am also available to teach the client about their muscles, joints, and bones and exercises they can do that may improve their condition.
As a runner, cyclist, skier, dancer, and writer, I know that outdoor activities and working at a desk can take a toll on our bodies. This personal experience helps me to understand, on a deeper level, how certain activities can affect your body, and how massage can relieve the stresses caused by such activities. About 50% of my clients are athletes who come in to recover from injury or improve their performance, while the rest come in for TMJ Syndrome massage, Stress and Anxiety relief, and simply relaxation.
