Bodywork

Most visits for acupuncture include some massage and bodywork to not only provide the benefits of human touch, but also so I can assess muscle tone and tightness in the joints. I use cream and lotion or will combine acupressure and Shiatsu techniques through the clothing to stimulate certain points, open the meridians, and stretch the limbs.

I also offer full body Shiatsu sessions.

I completed a 50-hour course in Shiatsu Massage in 1998 and received Certification in Massage Therapy with the Vermont Institute of Massage in 1997. Also, I have been trained in Reiki I.
