Enhance Your Overall State of Well-Being with Massage
Melt Away Muscular & Mental Tension and Promote Healing
I have been in practice for over 20 years in the Portsmouth area. My style is eclectic in nature, utilizing the many techniques I have learned over years of giving massage and taking continuing education courses. I specialize in several massage and bodywork techniques including Deep Tissue/Deep Muscle, Muscle Release, Pregnancy Massage, Thai Yoga Massage, Energy Work and Onsite Chair Massage. I tailor my sessions to accommodate the preferences and needs of my clients. Of course the fundamental techniques of Swedish massage with it's continuous effleurage strokes, deep kneading and stretching of tense muscles almost always shows up in a session to allow full body integration to take place. Some form of Thai massage is often included or can be given as a separate treatment on it's own.
I have a special table for Pregnant clients so they are able to comfortably and safely lie face down on the table.
On-Site Chair Massage or Corporate massage is another vibrant aspect of my practice. A 15 minute massage is administered in a specially designed chair while clients are fully dressed. Great for parties or gatherings as well.
I also instruct my clients in self-care techniques to ensure that healing and lifelong well-being is supported.

Bio
I have always worked or volunteered in the helping professions. In my early years in Canada I worked with the elderly in their homes or assisted living facilities, helping them with their everyday tasks and needs. In 1980 I graduated from Life Chiropractic College (now Life University) in Marietta, Georgia as a Chiropractic Assistant and worked many years in that profession. I finished my CAADAC training (certified alcohol and drug addiction counselor) program in the mid eighties and volunteered at a hospital in Houston, Texas facilitating aftercare groups. After moving back to the northeast, I went on to study Transpersonal Psychology at Burlington College in Burlington, Vermont, and acquired my BA. in 1995. I then proceeded to study at the Muscular Therapy Institute (now Cortiva) in Cambridge, MA, and graduated as a Muscular Therapist in 1997. I have been in practice ever since and continue to enjoy the fascinating healing mechanism of the mind/body connection. It's a privilege to participate in a clients' healing process, and to promote a sense of well-being by helping them manage stress, relieve tension, improve posture, flexibility and circulation, and to address any injury rehabilitation needs they may have.
I am thrilled to offer such quality care, and I love the work that I do!
