I believe that each of us is the ultimate expert on our own bodies and experiences. I believe that connecting mindfully to our own bodies is a crucial tool in healing from chronic pain and emotional trauma. I believe that the simple act of taking an hour to slow down and relieve pain can be revolutionary - in every sense.
As a nonbinary trans man and childhood cancer survivor, I spent years of my life feeling completely disconnected from my own body. Bodywork, yoga, and dance helped me to find and befriend my embodied self, and that has transformed my life on every level. It's with gratitude and humility that I want to offer those tools of transformation to as many people as I can.
About My Work
I practice client-centered massage that combines myofascial release, craniosacral therapy, and deep tissue massage to help address aches, pains, and limitations in your body. Whether those aches and pains are from working on a computer, wearing a binder, an old injury, or the crushing pressures of our current political situation, I can help you find freedom and relief that genuinely lasts.
I work with humans of all ages, races, genders, cultures, sizes and abilities. I practice radical body positivity and believe in meeting people wherever they are on their own journeys with embodiment and wellness. I'm especially passionate about working with other trans folx, people with trauma histories, and anyone else who may not feel safe or comfortable booking a massage.
If you are interested in receiving massage but are uncertain whether it’s right for you, please don’t hesitate to reach out via the Contact page. I would love to answer questions and find solutions that feel comfortable and accessible to you.
I studied massage therapy at the Potomac Massage Training Institute (PMTI) in Silver Spring, MD. I graduated in 2015 and moved to Philadelphia, where I practiced sports massage intensively for a year before expanding my practice to include more diverse, holistic practices. I am licensed and insured in the state of Pennyslvania.
