Hands-On Somatic Adjustments

About my practice

Gentle adults and teens of all genders are welcome in my practice. I work out of my home studio in Chelsea, Michigan, surrounded by gardens, forest, and gorgeous views. Join me here to experience deep care in a tranquil setting.

What to expect during a session

Sessions are fully clothed and masked

I’ll start by asking you a few questions about specific goals or major medical conditions you may have. You’ll find a comfortable reclining position, fully clothed except for your bare feet, on a massage table equipped with pillows and bolsters to support you. I usually begin with a soothing foot massage using cocoa butter. The pressure is light, but not at all ticklish.

As I work with the reflex zones on your feet, I can “check in” with your whole body to see what is asking for help in that moment. That may take the form of more foot massage, gentle movements of the legs and arms, and focus on moving energy through areas where it seems “stuck.” As the energy flows more freely, your body can make adjustments, relax, and heal itself. The ultimate goal of the work is for you to be able to make adjustments yourself and not need sessions to handle everyday stresses and pains. We might end your session with a few movements you can do at home to continue your healing.

This form of body work is very gentle. Pressure is firm and soothing; there is no deep pressure on sore points and no “bone cracking” when moving limbs and joints. My clients have ranged in age from 6 to 95, many with old or chronic injuries, and the most common reactions I hear are relaxation, anxiety reduction, pain reduction, and increased mobility.
