2022 practice update

I am still practicing on a limited basis, mostly home calls to already-existing clients.

I am *not* taking new clients at this time without a direct referral from a current client.

This is year 32 of my practice. It’s not what I envisioned at ALL for myself at this age! Pandemics are funny that way.

Currently, this website is mostly my garden blog, because I volunteer every week at the Native Medicinal Plant garden out by the airport. It is absolutely part-time job in and of itself, yet still, it’s all volunteer work.

The garden is open dawn to dusk, 365 days a year to visitors.

2021 is here, and with it, renewed hope that I can open my practice back up on a limited basis.

In 2020, I became a certified Mindfulness Meditation teacher as well. I offer group and individual sessions via Zoom.

I am also available to teach restorative yoga sessions online.

Please contact me at the NEW phone or current email listed at the bottom of this page for more information.

An update about my practice:

If you’ve been following along, or even if you haven’t, you’ll notice that I’ve been quite conservative in my re-opening plan for summer 2020.

I am working over the summer to pivot what I can offer to people to things that work well in an online format. Obviously, massage therapy isn’t something that I can offer over Zoom. While I miss providing healthy touch something fierce, the time off from working has helped me look at what I find most important about my work, and how it can still be essential moving forward in times of uncertainty.

Look for some new offerings coming soon to this site. I hope that you will be inspired by them and that you will enjoy them.

2020, the year of the coronavirus, would have been year 30 of my practice.

I suspended my work on March 13th, 2020 because of my increasing concerns about both community and direct spread of the virus. Six months after this virus (as I write this) appeared in humans, we still do not know enough about how it manifests and how it sickens and kills people for me to be able to return to practice safely.

I will see you sometime after the next few waves of this virus subside, and we hopefully have a vaccine for it.

Compassionate touch and client education are my passion.

I finished my Oncology Massage program in 2018 and have been implementing those practices and finding wonderful clients by referral.

I work primarily in an integrative style, using various Swedish, deep tissue, neuromuscular, muscle energy technique, structural, connective tissue, and energetic approaches along with Reiki.

My goals are to ease physical discomfort, educate and enlighten clients about biomechanics and movement in daily life, promote relaxation and stress relief, and help get people back to doing the things they love to do comfortably and happily.

I invite you to get in touch if you’re in the Lawrence, Kansas area and are looking for a stable, reliable, experienced therapist.
