Welcome! Thanks for coming. You're probably here for one of two reasons.
First, you may be here because you're feeling a little overwhelmed: You've said "yes" to so many commitments and obligations, that you're finding yourself overburdened, frustrated and exhausted. To make matters worse, you're not getting the time you want to spend with your loved ones, or to pursue your passions.
Second, you may be here because you're in pain. You've got a headache, a backache, or a heartache, and the pain is distracting you from the things you want to be able to focus on. Maybe it's affecting your sleep, your motivation, or your discipline; and you want it to be gone.
My website says Thoughtful Touch "Massage", but massage is only one of the approaches we can take to get you where you want to go. I'm here to find a way to help you feel better. Not just for a couple days, but long-term.
I also offer dialogue-based, body-centered Somatic Experiencing sessions, over Skype or in-person, to help people teach their bodies new ways of handling and letting go of stress.
In addition to being licensed as a Massage Therapist in the state of Washington, I've also received over 70 hours of training in Craniosacral Therapy at Bastyr University, and I've completed over 230 hours of training in Somatic Experiencing through the Somatic Experiencing Trauma Institute.
I'm in office Wednesdays, Saturdays, Sundays, and Mondays, and available for sessions on Skype the rest of the week. I'm here to help you recover from the effects of accumulating stress, and to live your best life.
If you want to lower the impact that stress has on your body, improve your ability to enjoy life, yet continue to be productive, Somatic Experiencing can help.
Like counseling, only for the body instead of the mind, Somatic Experiencing teaches your body to let go of trauma and build resilience.
Whether you've received massage therapy in the past or not, I'd like to challenge you to ask yourself what you want for your body. Less pain? Greater physical capabilities? A moment's rest? I will use specialized massage skills to get you there.
