Your body holds wisdom that your mind might not have access to. During massages, I am "listening" with my hands and heart. I draw from this deep listening, as well as formal knowledge of anatomy, to attune to your body's subtle cues to help you release patterns of tension stored in the body's tissue, relax, and heal.
We are emotional, intellectual, physical, and spiritual beings. Because all of these aspects are linked, massage can impact us on any and all of these levels. Although often massages are purely technical work on muscles and soft tissue, it's not uncommon for people to experience emotional release during massage, have exciting ideas, or even connect with spiritual realms. Any experience in any of these domains is welcome during your massage. All of you is welcome during your massage.
I consider you an equal partner during a massage session. You are welcome to relax into silence during a massage, and equally welcome to give in-the-moment feedback, as we collaborate in listening to your body's wisdom.
