I help people do their most important work:
Healing from injury, pain, and chronic emotional distress with pain-free massage & bodywork.
Providing Massage & Bodywork Services in West Seattle Since 2013.
Finding Your Center, Finding Your
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.
In place until further notice
Updated May, 2022:
Despite statewide changes to masking and vaccination requirements for indoor dining and events — and the lifting of federal mask mandates for transportation — WA State continues 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. (I can provide a mask if you need one.)
- Pre-screening questionnaire prior to each session: Covid-19 Pre-screen (electronic, sent via email)
- 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; boosters recommended as well.
And if you’ve had Covid, please wait before coming in for an appointment until one of the following conditions have been met:
- three weeks after a known infection or symptoms
- after one negative PCR test
- after three days of consecutive rapid tests (all negative results)
Even though we’re still wearing masks while in session — and I’m still practicing enhanced protocols of sanitization and air flow/filtration between sessions — the closed room and the close proximity between myself and my clients increases risk for all concerned. Thank you for your cooperation — we’re all in this together.
