Blackbird Healing arts 

massage and bodywork

My approach

I work with women and men of all ages and levels of fitness to help decrease pain, relieve stress and increase movement. I approach my practice with strength and intuition, and really listen to your concerns.  Together we explore the elements that can affect mobility, such as posture, lifestyle, repetitive motions, your work and your experience with pain and injury. I tailor each season according to your individual needs, offering an opportunity for healing and balance in your busy life.

Benefits of massage

Bodywork and massage offer a wide range of benefits that vary with the techniques applied to the body. Massage can increase circulation, reduce scar tissue, improve mobility and stimulate endorphins that reduce pain. No matter what your health goals are, massage is a vital part of the healing process.
