Giving Hands Massage & Healing Arts goes far beyond the simple treatment of sore muscles. While athletic and occupational injuries are within the scope of my practice, the ultimate purpose of my work is to free the client from the entanglements of the mind that manifest as stress in the body.
Because each client is unique, there is not one specific technique that will always work. Instead, I pay attention to what the client's body tells me—which areas are tense, how much pressure to apply. The result is a healing session that is tailored to the needs of the client.
My therapeutic massage technique is based on deep knowledge of physiology. My work is meditative and intuitive. Before I begin, I breathe, center myself, and connect with the client. I feel the locations of tension and set about freeing them.
