COVID-19 Response: Updates & FAQs

Who I Am:

After a few stints of living overseas, I have now settled in Minneapolis with my husband, Chris. We enjoy traveling nationally and internationally, preferably with family, and enjoy learning about history, cultures, and foods from around the globe. I especially enjoy spending time being active and outdoors with family and friends.  A few of my favorites are kayaking, biking, hiking and trail running---and of course visiting our Yurt!  Chris and I like using our hands and making things from scratch.  If we're lucky we'll get in a class on making wood-fired pizza ovens at the North House Folk School in Grand Marais by the end of 2019!

What I Do:

I believe strongly in the great healing potential of the human body if given the right ingredients and environment. I have a strong commitment to health and am here to encourage you to add Shiatsu or massage to your toolbox of self-care!

My certifications are as follows:

  • AOBTA Certified Shiatsu Practitioner by AOBTA (American Organization for Bodywork Therapies of Asia).  Graduate of the Minnesota Center for Shiatsu Study.  2001.
  • Certified in Graston Technique (Level M1 and M2)
  • Nationally registered Occupational Therapist and licensed in the state of Minnesota, 1990
  • CHT (Certified Hand Therapist) by HTCC-Hand Therapy Certification Commission, 2009

I am I offer various types of massages including:

  • Shiatsu
  • Myofascial Release
  • Graston Technique
  • Swedish Massage
  • Cranial-Sacral Therapy

What To Expect From Me:

  • I tend to use deeper pressure but modify my techniques depending upon individual needs.
  • Shiatsu is the type of massage I practice most.  It is performed through lightweight comfortable clothing and without oils. Shiatsu means 'finger pressure' in Japanese.  Shiatsu can help reduce stress, contribute to overall well-being, and help you keep the body balanced when subtle symptoms arise.
  • Sessions can include stretching, pressing, kneading, and tapping techniques.
  • I perform massages over comfortable, loose-fitting clothing to better control the pressure.
