Sanctuary Healing Arts offers postpartum doula care as well as massage therapy for women and their wee ones in Boulder County, Colorado
I am a massage therapist specializing in pre- & postpartum massage, Arvigo Techniques of Maya Abdominal Therapy® and good old fashioned Swedish & deep tissue massage. I have a passion for women’s wellness, stemming from my own journey with Hashimoto’s autoimmune condition. I believe in slowing down, taking the time to move your body in ways that feel good for YOU, eating good food with good people, stopping to smell the roses, developing a deep connection to your intuition and clearing negative mental chatter. I believe we all have the ability to heal and that healing comes from within - touch through massage helps to focus the body, soothe the nervous system and release “feel good” hormones like oxytocin.
My style of massage varies based on the needs of the client, but I generally like to work slowly and firmly to ensure the tissues release as much as possible on any given day (though I love clients who like light pressure or where I can just flow). I utilize Trigger Point Therapy, Myofascial Release, flowing Swedish strokes, rocking, traction and breath work to help you to relax fully. If I feel it would benefit you, I would love to share information about how the body works and ways you can make waves in your self-care off of the massage table. I am constantly reading, trading massages and taking courses to add to my skillset.
You can find me at Sanctuary Healing Arts Tuesday afternoons from 3-9pm, Wednesdays & Fridays from 9 to 3 & during the day on Saturdays. I am available for house calls for Sanctuary Healing Arts postpartum doula clients on alternating Wednesdays & Saturdays, and for private clients on Thursdays.
In my spare time you will find me in my garden, on the yoga mat, in the kitchen, listening to music, curled up with a good book or on the trail with my Aussie, Lulu.
