As a dancer I understand the value and need for targeted orthopedic work for specific injuries. This work might stay local to the injury or be coupled with other areas in the body that result in unhelpful movement patterns and pain. I have danced professionally for a decade. My experience with and understanding of the physical sensitivity and specific psycho-social layers that are a result of dance training, industry structures, and artistic practices have given me capabilities that translate to my care given to all athletes and people in general.

How do I work?
I like to work slowly to allow the nervous system time to integrate the information/suggestions I am offering. However, I have worked concisely at the Joffrey Ballet School and in other sports-focused contexts. To this end, I can offer 60, 75, or 90 minute sessions tailored to your needs. I value deep listening to the feel of the tissues with the ability to apply very deep pressure or effective light pressure. 
I work to integrate massage and BCST. Many injuries, such as concussions and post-concussion syndrome or high-stress disorders, are better addressed with BCST and can be integrated into any massage session. For example, a client who wants deeper, targeted work on their shoulders and neck but has a lot of anxiety and insomnia can get targeted work first and then be able to integrate as we transition into lighter touch and stillness at their cranium with BCST.
