After close to a decade in the medical field, I made the organic transition into massage and graduated Wellness Massage Center & Institute, St. Albans, VT in 2010. An accident as a teenager left me with a great deal of healing to do, I was thankfully introduced to massage. Having been helped to recover through massage therapy, I now practice with hopefulness that I can assist others in their personal health journeys.

My technique is simple: Do whatever will help the client to recover. During massage school I learned modalities such as Swedish, deep tissue, Shiatsu, and PNF stretching. After school I have taken many continuing education courses, such as Thai massage, Craniosacral Therapy, and Anatomy Trains.

2020 lead to a new new focus for HRM - movement therapy! In addition to earning a certification in personal training, I have completed a course in Medicupping and have been making strides to orient my work to utilize these new skills. 

Bearing the goal to assist all my clients to improve their health in mind, I integrate all of the appropriate modalities in each bodywork session - ensuring to reach our goals as quickly and effectively as possible. As part of this goal, training the client to take their care into their own hands at home is of paramount importance to me, which is where my Functional Movement Therapy comes into play. This is training for my clients to learn how to change the patterns, weaknesses, and/or restrictions that are keeping them in a state of chronic pain or from a state of better health! This training gives clients the power and ability to work with me in order bring their health to a new level.

I am so excited to incorporate these new modalities to my bodywork and have already been privileged to see their profound  benefits among my regular clients! 

In my free time you'll probably find me outdoors, at the beach, running, sailing, camping, hiking, snowboarding, and general vagabonding. I am fluent in American Sign Language, and my husband and I are active volunteers in our community.  We are still excited to be here in San Luis Obispo, and I look forward to meeting you as well!

 

Whether you require massage for general wellness or a specific therapeutic reason, HRM can help. Every massage is tailored to your individual needs to achieve maximum benefits for you.

Every expectant and new mother requires a special kind of attention in caring for her body. If you are expecting or have recently delivered, specialized massage can help ease the road into and out of childbirth.
