Finding Your Center, Finding Your

Ground

Ground

When a body is listened to, it becomes eloquent.

I customize each massage session for what you need in the moment: centering and grounding, self-care, stress reduction, injury treatment, pain relief, trauma unwinding, emotional clearing, or support for a life transition. On my table, you’re allowed to step back, give your mind a rest, and allow your body to tell its story: what’s working well, and how it can use more support.

Whether you’re a “deep-tissue refugee” or if you’re simply looking for a greater sense of ease with your everyday activities of work and play — whether you’re celebrating a milestone, or struggling with a life transition — whether you’ve received dozens of massages all over the globe, or if you’ve never received a professional massage before in your life — no matter what, you’ll be treated with compassion, safety, and respect.

I strive to be inclusive: race, gender, orientation, ability, size, age, religion/culture, and more. I’m limited by my experiences (as are we all), and I’m eager to listen and learn.

First time client?

What to expect

When you book your first session, my online scheduling program will send an email providing access to my electronic records portal. There you will fill out an intake (health history) form online, update your notification preferences, and fill out any other forms prior to your session forms (such as insurance claim information or Covid-prescreen).

Whenever possible, please wear comfortable, loose clothing to your session; you may re-main clothed during treatment (depending on the session or your personal preferences). Even if you choose to disrobe (partially or fully), per WA state law: clients will either be fully clothed or modestly draped at all times during the session.

I follow state laws, proclamations, and guidelines that govern healthcare providers and LMTs in Washington state: hygiene & sanitation, draping, boundaries, documentation, disclosure, privacy, and ethics. Romantic or sexual contact between a therapist and client is always inappropriate. Any form of inappropriate requests, discussion, or solicitation is not allowed, and will not be tolerated.

If you have any questions, please contact me prior to booking a session. Thanks, and I hope to work with you soon.

Covid-19 Protocols

In place until further notice

Covid-19 Symbol for Health & Safety

Updated November, 2021:

WA State mandates continue to require masks for healthcare providers and their patients. (That’s us.)

I will be following those state mandates in my practice.

  • Masks are (still) required — regardless of vaccination status (yours or mine). Please wear an appropriate cloth or surgical mask when entering the waiting area, while in my office, and throughout the duration of the session. (Masks will be provided, if needed.)
  • Temperature check upon arrival (required by law in healthcare settings).
  • Pre-screening questionnaire prior to each session: Covid-19 Pre-screen (PDF or electronic)
  • Enhanced sanitation & procedures in place: Covid-19 Policies (PDF)
  • I will have these documents available to read (or fill out) prior to each session.


I may inquire about your vaccination status, although I will not require proof. I ask your honesty when discussing vaccination status and virus exposure; I will be honest and transparent about mine. Additionally, I do recommend everyone get vaccinated against Covid-19 (unless you have a valid medical exemption) as soon as possible.

I go to deal with headaches, neck and back pain. Always a top quality massage…some of the best I’ve had anywhere. Plus, Darin quite often has good and last minute availability as an extra bonus.
I consider Darin to be at the top of my self-care team when it comes to bodywork. My first introduction of him was at the Discovery School of Massage. He taught a skill enhancement course. After graduation, I sought him out for a session. I was blown away by his intuitive nature, and capacity to both lead my body into unwindings and also to follow it! I feel SO much better after seeing him. He is truly gifted. One of those amazing people who is brilliantly intuitive.

Darin is a top-notch therapist and overall outstanding human! I felt safe and comfortable working with him, and I left his office with more ease and comfort in my body. I highly recommend this skilled practitioner.

Darin is a miracle worker -- he's helped me with both the physical stress that comes from having a very, very desk-intensive job as well as the physical stress I felt from having surgery and feeling physically ... there in my new body.Most importantly though, Darin is just a lovely person. I felt comfortable from the drop, and that is just so important to me in finding a body work provider.

Darin is my go-to massage therapist for all my weightlifting woes. His focus on long term improvements over quick fixes is what keeps me from falling apart as I get older and keeps me coming back!
