How can I help?

I am a licensed massage therapist with a decade experience working to help others move better in this world. I have found that massage therapy is a simple, effective agent of change. In a few sessions or sometimes a few minutes!, massage can remove stuck energy patterns and get you moving better. From soft tissue injuries, mis-alignments, muscle tension or stress- I have seen the benefits of massage.

Your session is your own. We will work together to come up with a treatment plan or do our best to make the one hour you have be the best hour of your day. You are welcome to call to schedule or Book A Session on the Tab above.

Some conditions I feel confident treating:

Neck pain, whiplash, headaches, jaw pain, stiff neck, stress held in shoulders, frozen shoulder

Sciatic pain, knee stiffness, restless leg syndrome, post op care for hip, knee

Stiff, sore extremities, movement of lymph for swellings, calf pain/cramps, elbow pain, neuralgia

Fibromyalgia, depression, insomnia, anxiety, pain, life changes that feel "out of body"

I trained on the island of Maui in the Hawai'ian healing art of Lomi Lomi and am a Certified Mana Lomi Practitioner. Your session will most likely fall in to one of the three offerings below. If you do not specify which massage style you want; your session will fall in to the Mana Lomi category, addressing your areas of concern while leaving you feeling relaxed and rejuvenated.

Frequently asked questions

Are you a native Hawaiian? If not, are you concerned about cultural appropriation?

I am of Eastern and Northern European descent and am proud of my heritage. It was important to me to train in Hawaii, live with the people I trained with and experience their traditional bodywork first hand. (pardon the pun) My teacher is a cultural practitioner, native Hawai'ian who has personally granted me permission to share this important work.

What plants do you use for healing and how are they applied?

I am a bio-regional herbalist so many of the plants I have crafted into oils and liniments are native to this area which I harvested myself. I also have a medicinal herb garden where I grow many of the herbs used in the fresh plant poultices. All are grown and harvested with the intention of healing. I apply the plants to the areas where you are holding tension or feeling pain. I will also use plants to assist in the healing of emotional trauma or discomfort.

Are my sessions covered by insurance?

I am a prefrerred provider of therapeutic massage with Regence, Premera, LNI, PIP. Your Mana Lomi session is covered by insurance but not the 'Aina Herbal Massage or the Signature Lomi Massage. Your insurance sessions are 55-60 minutes long and include billing service.
