As your licensed massage therapist, my goal is to help you be your best and live life more fully by helping to reduce your pain and stress.
Somehow, people who have been in pain for a long time without any relief seem to find me because of the triggerpoint therapy that can help with that type of muscular pain.
Getting regular weekly massage can also help reduce the effects
of stress which can reduce the effectiveness of the immune system and
other systems of the body such as circulation and blood flow, hormones,
and of course muscles and joints. In these uncertain and stressful
times, now more than ever it is important to get regular massage to help
you through these days. You can read some of the short articles I have written on many topics or find out more about my services and fees.
Each client is a gift and I learn so
much from each person even after all of this time of being in the
profession. I have been a massage therapist since 1989 in downtown Seattle and have extensive experience and training in massage and triggerpoint therapy. I also have training in structural integration which is about postural alignment. When your body is out of alignment, it can create pain. Often where the pain is - is not the problem. I work to get to the source of the pain so you can feel better.
I also write for the massage profession in many of my websites because I want to give back to my community of massage therapists and share what I have learned after 31 years of being a massage therapist. If you are interested in learning more about what I am doing,
you can check out some of my sites.
www.massageschoolnotes.com, www.massagepracticebuilder.com , Please also join my local meetup.com group and get together with other massage therapists in the local Seattle area for coffee, low cost CE, and support.
I also am the author of a few books for the massage profession: Insurance Billing 101 for Massage Therapists, Websites that Work for Massage Therapists, A Career in Massage - Is it for you?
My work for the profession includes being a founding member of the WA State Massage Therapy Association and past Secretary. Currently, I am the secretary of the Political Action Committee for Massage Therapists in WA State - WA Massage Alliance for Health

Soothing touch, whether it be applied to a
ruffled cat, a crying infant, or a frightened child, has a universally
recognized power to ameliorate the signs of distress. How can it be that
we overlook its usefulness on the jangled adult as well? What is it
that leads us to assume that the stressed child merely needs
"comforting," while the stressed adult needs "medicine"?-- from Job's Body: A Handbook for Bodywork by Deane Juhan
