I think touch has the power to transform.  It can be simple, yet profound, and just require that the receiver allow it to be.

Covid-19 Update

Last year I made a number of changes to my practice to ensure the safest possible experience for us both. After nearly 18 months, these changes are an established routine.

I have made every effort to minimize the impact of these changes on your experience. Things like improved air quality from an air purifier with UV light and enhanced disinfection protocols happen behind the scenes.

I plan to continue to work as long as it is sanctioned by our governing bodies, such as the State of Vermont and the American Massage Therapy Association.  And of course, as long as I am healthy, and all of my family members are healthy as well.

Massage Therapy

Every body is unique and different on any given day, so I offer massage therapy that is  tailored to meet you in the present, emphasizing your preferences and needs.


Whether you seek relaxation,  relief from stress or chronic pain, or rehabilitation from an injury, I will craft a session that's just for you.


Drawing on my 20 years experience and training in many styles of massage, I take pride in being able to weave a seamless experience for you. It is an art, and I am grateful to be able to share this with my clients.


I have been practicing pregnancy massage since 1999, but it has been since the birth of my own two children that I have deeper connection with and love of this work.


I can effectively address your needs while promoting deep relaxation to create a container for present-mindedness.


My clients leave calm and centered. To book your session or learn more, click here.
