I practiced bodywork and massage for 12 full, wonderful years. Due to the onset and continuation of the COVID-19 pandemic, multiple layers of circumstances, remaining in my steadfast and hippocratic belief of “do no harm” and new doors of my life closing and opening, I no longer offer massage as hands-on work in person. However, I feel this has given me an opportunity to pass on the knowledge to others on how to take care of their loved ones and selves through bodywork. I look forward to helping all in this capacity. You can find free video tutorials here on the website.
