Certified Esalen® Massage Therapy
Esalen® Massage integrates the entire body: your breathing pattern, your body’s response to the world, the famous “long stroke” creating a head to toe flow over the body much like the waves of the Pacific Ocean. My certification as a Esalen® massage therapist has enriched my career and passion in helping others reveal their true selves. Thai massage offers assisted stretching and range of motion while increasing both one’s energy and flexibility. My training in Thailand allows me to incorporate the Thai massage modality into treatment. Esalen® Massage is the melting pot of all modalities, a vast array of influences. Esalen® Massage is defined by the relationships we build.

Floracopeia Aromatherapy Massage
Traditional aromatherapy body massage uses specific techniques to balance the body, mind and spirit. Essential oils enter the bloodstream through the hair follicle, resulting in immediacy.
Using 7-12 individual essential oils (single notes) addresses the autonomic nervous system, helping the body return to a state of homeostasis or balance. The massage reactivates the limbic system, alleviating stress, toxins, and inflammatory response. This massage is a fusion of Eastern and Western massage styles and addresses chakras, spinal pressure, muscle release, lymphatic drainage and foot reflexes.
Supporting ecologically responsible producers, Floracopeia empowers aromatherapy massage.

From my training and certification in Shiatsu to my training and certification in Thai Massage I bring you the best of Eastern modalities with my fusion of movement and meridians.
Thai Massage is a 75 min session offering. My guest is required to wear loose fitting clothing. For women, yoga pants and a loose fitting top. For men sweat pants and loose fitting top. The 75 minute session is not performed on a massage table. Thai Massage traditionally is clothed, no oil, and performed as floor work. Thai Massage mobilizes joints, introduces contrast stretching, while addressing meridian work from Eastern techniques. Thai Massage is a moving mediation in my experience.
My prerequisite for offering the service requires the guest to have had previous experience or exposure to Yoga, Pilates, Gyrotonic, Qi Gong or other body movement discipline which incorporates body awareness techniques. If you are someone that has had none, I would request you book a “Consultation” to have a complete understanding of the technique. The weight limit to be worked on is 250 pounds or below.
In 2000 I completed my studies at The Swedish Institute College of Health Sciences. I spent two years training in Shiatsu. This led me to travel to Chiang Mai, Thailand where I attended The Thai Massage School Shivagakomarpaj & Old Medicine Hospital.
