90+ minute sessions
my work draws on swedish deep tissue, thai, acupressure, physical therapy, and contact improvisation. I go deep, facilitating not only physical release of tissues, but restructuring and grounding. In my sessions, embodied memories can be brought to the fore, and I am comfortable and open to working through whatÂ may surface, both with a tender physical touch and verbal support until you until you feel like a new body bereft of old patterns which no longer serve you.
2 minute tune-ups
I am known for my hug-justments (a portmanteau of hug and adjustment) Â : a technique I developed which simultaneously grounds and elevates the receiver - for many recipients hug-justments cause an adjustment and cracking of the spine and are also massage hug which often leaves the receiver in a state of appreciative relaxation and reconnected with their bodies.
turn your event into a treasured memory - book me for performance healing, bodywork, & hug-justments for your gathering ~
cuddling /platonic touch sessions & mentoring
Loving touch is a basic human need. Before I overcame self-judgement andÂ the current cultural climate surrounding touch (typically limiting it to contact between relatives and monogamous intimate sexual partnerships)Â I was touch-starvedÂ due to lack of knowledge of my hunger andÂ underdevelopedÂ ability to express my desire. Slowly, over time, I cracked open my shell and challenged the status-quo and now am passionate about helping others do the same. Through detailed non-judgmental feedback I can teach you touch literacy, how to express your needs and boundaries,Â how to respect the boundaries of another compassionately, and how to inquire about their needs in a no/low stress environment.
