    Between stimulus and response there is a space. In that space is our power to choose our response. In our response lies our growth and our freedom. ~Viktor Frankl 

    Taking care of your body may be last on your to-do list but your body does so much for you—when was the last time you did something kind for it? Getting a massage is a great way to show yourself some compassion and kindness. Are you ready to befriend your body? There are so many reasons to disconnect from yourself but you’ll gain a fuller life by becoming embodied. One common reason to disconnect is unresolved trauma which can show up in your body. Oftentimes a specific body part may tense for no apparent reason, you don’t want to be touched in a certain area, or certain situations, feelings, or people can cause your body to have a specific repeated reaction. A common saying in the massage world is the issues are in the tissues. Even experiences you might not have considered traumatic, such as a minor car accident or that one time someone shoved you in the playground, can have an impact on your body (both physically and emotionally). It is constantly sending you signals and storing away experiences and those experiences show up in your posture, gait, or how you carry yourself in the world. It’s up to you to decide how you want to show up for yourself.  Don’t allow fear, discomfort, and pain to hold you back any longer.

    Discovering your authentic self is possible and so is gaining a deep wisdom from within. I became a massage therapist because I saw the positive effects it had relieving some of my mother’s symptoms of diabetes and depression and I want others to experience those same positive effects. It is difficult to live in a body you may hate (or wish you could control or change—disordered eating and eating disorders tend to make living in your body feel like a constant threat), feel uncomfortable or unfamiliar in, or one that doesn’t function properly. I know what it’s like to be at war with your body. You don’t have to keep fighting this battle alone. Through my personal experiences and various trainings, I act as a guide as we navigate and  learn about your innerworld so that you can feel your best and start living the life you deserve. Together using various modalities, we can explore ways to find your authentic self, connection, and gain embodiment.

    I am a Licensed Massage Therapist, graduating from the Cortiva Institute, and a member of the Associated Bodywork & Massage Professionals. Also I am a Certified Hypnotist through the National Guild of Hypnotists. I have experience working with a wide variety of populations including veterans, those managing chronic pain, disordered eating and eating disorders, pregnancy, and mental illness and trauma. I enjoy mindfulness and meditation and have completed Brown University’s Mindfulness Based Stress Reduction (MBSR) courses I and II. During a session, I may incorporate or recommend MBSR techniques if appropriate. At Mind Body Co-op I also offer hypnotherapy and can incorporate chakra balancing into a massage session using singing bowls.
