When your body gets out of balance, your whole life can feel out of balance. Whether you need deep relaxation, pain relief, or help managing a chronic condition, I will tailor your massage session to your specific needs and help you restore that balance.

Latest news ~ July 2018

Embodywork now offers Oncology Massage! In early June I took a 32-hour course in this specialty, learning how to adapt my work to the specific needs of cancer patients while managing the various risks that come with cancer and the side effects caused by treatment. I wrote a blog post about the experience: Even Here: On Learning Oncology Massage.

Do you have cancer? Does somebody you love? Massage can be remarkably effective at decreasing the pain, nausea, fatigue, depression, and anxiety that tend to accompany the disease and its treatments. And when somebody is ill and not moving the way they’re used to, that can lead to musculoskeletal problems – which massage can absolutely address.

I’m in the process of updating my website to provide more information on this subject, but meanwhile if you’d like to learn more I recommend the Society for Oncology Massage, of which I will soon be a member: s4om.org

In other news, the first intense heat wave of 2018 has arrived, and I find myself so grateful for my nice, cool office. It’s air conditioned here. And in a (very lovely) basement. I’m here every Tuesday, Wednesday, and Friday; make an appointment to cool down and relax your body today!

Embodywork is open on Tuesdays from 8:30am to 5:30pm, and Wednesdays and Fridays from 8:30am to 4:30pm.
