Bodywork Offerings:

60-Minutes: $90    ·     90-Minutes: $125

Zen Shiatsu

My heart's work is Zen Shiatsu, an intuitive style of bodywork that originated in Japan through the lineage of Shizuto Masunaga. This work is done in comfy clothes on a supportive mat on the floor, where there is room for stretching and moving the body. Working on the floor offers a firm depth of pressure and a deeply grounding experience. Zen Shiatsu is a uniquely nurturing, holistic meditation for both the giver and receiver. 

Table Massage

Relaxing, therapeutic Western-style massage on a table using pure jojoba oil and your desired pressure directly on-skin. This work is practiced with partial or full undress, fully draped with sheets & a blanket.

Bodywork Add-Ons

These can be added to any Shiatsu or Table Session (the method they are applied will differ for each format). If you have questions about any of the Add-Ons offered, please reach out to me and ask!

Warm Towels: $10

Cupping Massage: $15

Warm Stones: $20

Tarot Card Inspiration: $20 (add 15 mins)

Chair Massage

Massage can be a brilliant addition to your workspace or a special event you are hosting. Bringing a portable massage chair, I will set up shop on-location and offer short massage sessions (anywhere between 10-20 mins). Contact me to learn more about how it works!

Movement Education

Integrating Somatic therapies such as  Alexander Technique, YogAlign & Nutritious Movement to create a customized experience for your body. Movement work can be integrated into any of the bodywork sessions listed above or offered in a group workshop format. Contact me for more details.

 

 

Sliding Scale:

Don't let finances stop you from tending to yourself. One Sliding Scale session is available per week upon request, starting at $60. If that amount of money is not available to you right now, perhaps we can work out an exchange of other types of resources. This may mean an art trade, a skill share, or even a thoughtfully prepared meal. There is room for creativity in reciprocity!

Send me an email today to snag this week's sliding scale session.

Bodywork for Artists

 

As a theatre artist, I have found that bodywork informs every artistic endeavor I pursue. After that initial whisper of inspiration, continuing to deepen my connection with myself through somatic awareness and relaxation allows me to tune into my intuition, unfurling my creativity and inspiring fresh ideas throughout the creative process. I invite you to experience this connection in your own body as your art unfolds. 

When we meet, we will set an intention to explore whatever feels ripe to you physically, emotionally, and artistically, and then begin bodywork of your choice. Perhaps you are feeling patterns of tension developing from repetitive use (stooped over a drafting table, for example) and need to release physically. Or maybe you are coming up against a blockage in your creative process and need to reconnect with your gut impulses. We can work together to unlock your body and perhaps awaken the often-elusive muse.
