What song is always on your playlist?
“Peace Out” by MC Yogi. The tone of the woman’s voice here harmonizes the body and invites a sense of deep calm.
What is your favorite muscle?
Gastrocnemius, also known as the calf muscle. I just love massaging this part of the body… And I love getting this part massaged!
What is your favorite skeletal bone?
The bones of the skull, specifically the frontal, parietal, occipital, and temporal bones. I love to massage where all these bones connect. It seems to just simply take the weight/heaviness out of the head/mind. To help create a lightness in someone’s mind or encourage them to do such a thing, is a gift. And I also love getting this sweet spot massaged, I feel a great sense of freedom with a simple, intelligent head massage.
What line to your clients do you hear yourself saying in your sleep?
“Slowly roll onto you belly and scoot down just a little bit.”
How would you describe your work?
Nourishing, nurturing and, necessary.
