My roots are from New York City where I attended massage school at the Swedish Institute in 2000. My years working with the body have taught me many things. I listen and follow the tissue, dancing in rhythm, allowing for the deepest possible unwinding to occur. My work is a fusion of all that I have learned. My background is in Structural Integration, fascial work, Craniosacral Therapy, lymph drainage, Reconnective Therapy, and Mayan Abdominal work to name a few. Each massage is tailored to you and what you need in that moment. I look forward to connecting.
