Handwork Therapeutic Massage
I specialize in working with older adults who often experience chronic painful conditions, although I also see people who need to relieve less dramatic stresses and strains. I work in a quiet, private office by appointment only and tailor each session to your health history and current needs. I have 14 years of experience working with clients because of injuries, surgeries, chemotherapy, recovery from addiction, pregnancy, osteoarthritis, and other conditions.
Bio
An older adult myself, I became a massage therapist after a long career as a professor of religious studies and psychology which included teaching about different approaches to healing. I have been told that my hands are "magical," but they are also well informed.
