y philosophy of care is to treat each person as I would want to be treated: with respect, confidentiality, and in the highest personal regard.

Infant/Child Massage Instruction  -  (Certified Educator of Infant Massage)

Parents learn the ancient art of infant massage.  In addition to learning the strokes for the legs, abdomen, chest, arms, hands, face, head and back, specific techniques are learned
to relieve gas/colic/constipation and for relaxation.  Parents learn to read baby's non-verbal cues to avoid over-stimulation thereby creating a more content, obedient and confident child.
   (Call or email for private & group instruction rates)

Presentations and Demonstrations
are available to private groups, community and senior organizations and in corporate settings.  Presentations can be on the benefits of infant massage for infants/children and parents, or various aspects of "Beneficial Bodywork" including Zero Balancing®, stretching, self-care techniques, breath work, etc.


Zero Balancing® and Craniosacral therapy are received fully clothed lying
face up on a massage table. The goal is to attain a pain free, balanced, and
relaxed session that continues into your everyday life.
