Licensed Massage Therapist, LMT

It has been a beautifully long and winding road. I have lived all over the country and traveled all around the world to find myself here in Portland, Maine, where I established Magnolia Healing Arts in July of 2013. I very much believe in the power of self care and the importance of investing in oneself. I see bodywork not only as a luxury, but also as an essential part of longevity, health and wellness. I believe that the very healing that we are seeking is available through nature’s gifts. Massage therapy, acupuncture, healthy fresh food, herbal medicine, crystal energy, and aromatherapy are all important parts of my own self care routine. I strive to keep myself grounded, clear and balanced, so that I may be fully present in each of my sessions with you.

Along with bodywork, I have a number of other passions and crafts. I love working with my hands! Before being a massage therapist I worked as an organic farmer. In Maine I have worked with a few different farms including Left Field Farm and Turtle Rock Farm. I have always been a musician, I play piano, drums, guitar, mandolin and sing. Currently I play West African Drums for a fantastic dance class in town. Learn more and join us at Embody The Rhythm. I love many mediums of art, including metal, ink and even web-design!

Magnolia Healing Arts

Overview of Practice
At Magnolia Healing Arts, I strive to work with a unique balance of science and magic. With a foundation in Thai Yoga Massage, I see the body as an energetic being, and with a foundation in Neuromuscular Therapy, I feel confident approaching each client with a strong understanding of Neuro-Anatomy. I always strive to access the root of someone’s physical discomfort. I became certified in Prenatal Massage, so that I could confidently offer care to women going through the incredible journey of pre and post natal care. I truly believe in the power of self care, and the body’s power to heal.

I trust that when a person gets in touch with their body, it can guide the way toward healing. Letting go of tense, stressed out body and mind, I witness clients leaving my office feeling more grounded, with a renewed sense of freedom of mobility, and more deeply connected to their joy and purpose.
