"I offer a unique holistic structural approach as a dually certified therapist in the western & traditional forms of massage therapy. I have learned, lived & experienced therapeutic bodywork the way it's done in the East & West & in several traditional cultures. First hand, extensive experience as a giver & receiver has allowed me to understand that structure relates to the body's interdependence between all parts from point A to Z, yet holism refers to  body, mind, emotion, experience & time..."

Offers for Women's Wellness 

Wellness Massage Therapy

As a certified Massage Therapist I work with a combination of techniques which I have amassed through nearly two decades of training & experience, to provide a holistic approach in my uniquely spiced technique that combines my knowledge of East & West therapy &  bodywork into uniquely built restorative wellness sessions. I offer tailored therapeutic massage for wellbeing, relaxation or pain management; as well as transitional bodywork for women during pregnancy, postpartum & those experiencing the journey of peri/menopause.

Traditional Bodywork

At any stage of transition, women need extra care & support. Therapeutic massage offers enormous revitalizing benefits, yet sometimes we need a more traditional approach to wellness. I am trained as a Thai Massage Therapist & offer sessions of Thai bodywork for all journeys, including pregnancy. I also work with traditional techniques such as Ayurvedic Massage, which promotes body-mind balance & traditional Mexican Rebozo, a deeply restorative form of bodywork from my Mexican lineage.

Motherhood Offers

For the past several years I have dedicated my work to helping mothers in pregnancy and postpartum. As part of my own evolution I am reducing my motherhood offers to focus on Massage Therapy, Bodywork & Women's Wellness in stages of transition. I do, however continue to offer a few key services which are centered on wellness for the mother in the journey from conception to years down the line in their extended postpartum. 

Wellness Offers

Although my main line of work is massage therapy & bodywork, I am deeply invested in women's wellness. My own journey includes several experiences that have continuously put my body-mind balance in a state of dis-regulation. From facing PTSD/depression while recovering from medical trauma; to  living as an expat for two decades; from transitioning into motherhood in my late 30's & early 40's under the stigma of "geriatric motherhood"; to having started my own peri-menopause journey in a time frame that blurred the lines of what lays behind years of hormonal imbalance. With a background on women's studies & empowerment, my passion for women's wellness is crossing over from massage & bodywork to a deeper place from where I seek to guide & support women in various stages of transition. The journey within/in-between is my inspiration to bring a space for women where intuitive awareness meets surrender & accountability. A space to safely go back to the you within.

A massage session for women looking to treat structural discomfort, chronic pain or common aches related to stress & the strain modern life has on our bodies. Resulting from almost two decades of exploration & insight into what massage therapy can do for the body & mind, these sessions are intuitively created for each client. Beyond being holistic in the sense of working the entire psycho-physical structure, the sessions I offer are wholesome: I believe the root of our discomfort lays in our hips & extends from there to our core & limbs; we are more than a singular muscle, we are a unit held together by many components, all of which need to be addressed. I have been blessed with the opportunity to amass knowledge from the East & the West, the current techniques & the traditional approach, all of which I combine on my theraputic sessions to give every woman what SHE needs at one specific time. A uniquely designed combination of deep & firm with warmth, stretching, long strokes to stimulate blood flow & mobilize lymph, & trigger points to release fascia & deep tightness. Deeply soothing yet profoundly therapeutic.
