For sixteen years, I worked as a massage therapist for a busy chiropractic clinic in the Wallingford neighborhood of Seattle.  I spent the majority of these years on a shamanic path, learning the old ways of healing from several different teachers.  I believe education and self-care are very important for optimal healing.   

When I’m not working, I love to spend time outside gardening, hiking, and camping – even when it’s raining!  I also love to cook and talk about food.   

Massage Practice

When I enrolled at Ashmead College in 1999, I knew that this work would be the door that led to everything else in my life. Since then, massage has been my passion. 

After graduation, I started working in a chiropractic office. My long-term working relationship with these chiropractors gave me a multi-layered understanding of the human body.  During my sixteen years of employment at this clinic, I had the opportunity to hone my therapeutic massage and injury treatment skills.  In 2014, I opened my private practice closer to home.  

I’m fascinated by the current research on fascia, and I know that this subtle work has a profound effect on the body.  I enjoy being able to give quality massage to everybody that walks through the door – whether you are a weekend warrior, or you have a spinal fusion.

I accept most major private health insurance plans, including Premera and Regence.  I also take Personal Injury Protection (PIP) and worker compensation claims (L&I).

My continuing education courses include Thai massage, QiGong, Hawaiian Lomi Lomi, Cranial Sacral, and myofacial release.
