to your healing place of refuge…
Safe, positive, nurturing, therapeutic touch blended with gentle movement and guided breathe can help you re-establish a trusting relationship with touch and your body.
Trauma informed bodywork works to integrate the pieces back together again. It provides a slow, safe application of therapeutic touch that helps bring you back into your body. It’s a simple approach for working with people who’ve forgotten what it means to be in the present moment; people who have forgotten what it feels like to “feel.” They numb out their joy, their capacity to feel alive and their ability to feel safe in the world.
It may be nothing more than a simple holding of a certain spot or muscle. It may be no touch at all. An entire session of safe trauma informed bodywork might focus exclusively on how you feel in your body, or just helping you learn to rest long enough to feel anything at all.
Trauma informed bodywork can be integrated into any bodywork or coaching session. Please discuss with your Massage Therapist/Coach during your first session, or anytime something comes up during or after a session.
Massage & Bodywork
With careful consideration of words, permission, and personal space a trauma informed session removes potential abrasiveness that would otherwise put a person on high alert and replaces it with soft lights, healing music and support.
Your massage therapist/coach is not a Doctor or Mental Health professional and does not treat the specific trauma or traumas; trauma informed means we have the training and awareness of how trauma impacts all aspects of life. It is more of an approach than a specific therapy. This method can be used in any settings without directly discussing your trauma. One of the main goals is to avoid re-traumatizing.

Probably the best massage I have had. She uses all different methods. Hot stones, hot towels, etc. I will definitely recommend and come back!

I haven’t been that mentally checked out in MONTHS! Your energy is so calming my ongoing anxiety went right out the window! Can’t want to go back next month.

Stop looking for a massage therapist! This is the one!! By far the best massages I have ever had. Cupping along with other methods have improved Sciatic nerve pain along with neck and shoulder knots. I have never felt so relaxed during a massage but also works to heal my target spots. Amazing.
