The massage is performed in a flowing sequence of movements, often referred to as a dance, that focuses on energy lines and specific points along them.
Thai massage is known for its comprehensive benefits, which can include increased flexibility, stress reduction, improved circulation, enhanced energy flow, and overall relaxation. It is suitable for individuals of various ages and physical conditions, although it's always important to communicate any specific concerns or limitations to the practitioner before the session.

Craniosacral TherapyBook Craniosacral Therapy Session
Craniosacral therapy, a gentle and non-invasive form of bodywork, offers numerous benefits for both physical and emotional well-being. One of the primary advantages of this therapy is its ability to reduce stress and promote relaxation. Through light touch and manipulation of the craniosacral system, which includes the bones, tissues, and fluids surrounding the brain and spinal cord, craniosacral therapy releases tension and improves the flow of cerebrospinal fluid. This results in a profound state of relaxation, which can alleviate various stress-related symptoms such as headaches, insomnia, and anxiety. Moreover, craniosacral therapy has been found to enhance the body's natural healing processes by stimulating the immune system and improving overall physical health. It can also address musculoskeletal issues by releasing restrictions in the body, promoting better posture and mobility. Overall, craniosacral therapy provides a holistic approach to wellness, leaving individuals feeling relaxed, rejuvenated, and better equipped to cope with the demands of daily life.

I was guided into body work by my own healing journey. Throughout the past decade I have been exploring different modalities including hands on body work, somatic healing, plant spirit medicine, herbalism and nutrition. This journey of deep self discovery has delivered me to the knowledge that humans have an innate capacity to heal. I use a combination of practices including traditional massage, myofascial releases, abdominal massage, and polarity.
I have a deep passion for working with women, especially during the childbirth continuum. I am a certified Innate Postpartum Practitioner and offer in-home care to growing families in Maine. My philosophy is rooted in women's ability to care for and support one another. I use nutrition as medicine, physiological design, and community as my foundation in helping mothers thrive in their birthing years and beyond. When I’m not tending to others in my community, I like to spend my time hiking, baking, gardening and dancing.
Spiritual healing is my life’s passion. My introduction to energy work came at a young age when I suffered a catastrophic fracture in my right arm which led to significant pain and numbness through parts of my arm. Through cranial work, I was able to regain complete sensation and full mobility! As an adult, I began my journey in the world of healing as a licensed massage therapist in 2012 and received training and education in craniosacral therapy shortly after. As my experience and practice has grown, I’ve had the honor of using the Akashic records to help clear energies at the deepest soul level.
