From my perspective massage is a healing art. Whenever I have created art; from painting, to cooking; from dancing, to writing a poem; I've always valued the freedom to use whatever medium I have, without limits (my body, words, colors) and to let something deeper and less mental to be revealed in an uncalculated way. My massage technique is very similar.
I have had the sincere blessing of learning many different modalities and approaches to massage and healing over the last six years and even before then, and only when I have total freedom to use those tools, do I feel I can accomplish my best work.
Furthermore, I see true healing as something both the patient and practitioner enter into mutually; and it is my hope that your body will remember how (through something less concrete than our concepts) the body heals itself when in a state of balance.
I use trigger point therapy, efflourage, deep tissue, myofascial release and many other well known techniques as the core of my massage sessions. However, I am influenced by my contact with Lomi Lomi, Trager therapy and the modalities listed in the additional link on my home page and will use (after discussing the process with you) the therapies I believe will be most effective.
I come from a local chiropractic family and I am a licensed massage therapist (MA68861) in the Sarasota, fl area.
I do massage from my office at $65 an hour
House calls are $85 for an hour
* I meet for an intake and evaluation of healing goals with any new clients before the first session over tea or coffee.
