"Helping you heal & regain a sense of balance in both mind and body."
I'm a Licensed Massage Therapist with a Holistic Massage Therapy and Wellness consultant practice in South Portland, Maine. My practice is called Balance Back to reflect my beliefs in life balance and its restoration through energy movement, transformation, and massage.
The word “holistic” is an important part of my practice because it emphasizes the importance of working with the entire body, not just one area but rather a combination of treatment. I believe that when we work with the whole person, we can create a more balanced and harmonious experience for both the client and myself. When placing my hand on a client's body, a range of physiological responses occur. These physical reactions affect the skin, sensory nerve receptors, muscle tissue, joints, blood, and lymph circulation.
Our emotions are body-felt sensations, and one of the first things I look to discover when meeting a client for the first time in their understanding of the emotional-mind-body connection. Consider when you have experienced anger, fear, shame, or joy. These emotions are fundamentally associated with a physical response and your experiences, past, and present. When I engage with you physically as a massage therapist, I am in touch with your feelings.
Our bodies also embody our conscious and unconscious belief systems about ourselves. All your physical and emotional responses are present during that moment of touch, but so is my energy, including polarity therapy, deep tissue, hot stone, and sports massage, as part of my therapeutic massage program effective treatment from chronic pain, neck pain, traumatic injury, and deep healing. As a holistic massage therapist, my professionalism means that I will take care of myself elsewhere. Still, I can draw on my own history as appropriate to assist your process. This relatability means I've developed expertise on a holistic level with particular client needs.
I believe energy work is important to overall health and wellness. I've been holding space in this profession for the past 10 years with a foundation of communication, trust, and healing. By restoring balance and harmony to the body in your deep tissue, the flow of life, and soul essence as an energy worker, we can create a more balanced life experience for ourselves and those around us.
The range of possible responses for a specific session is enormous, bringing together the rich complexity of who you are, who I am, and how we connect through the medium of touch.
In my energy work practice in South Portland, Maine, I use a variety of techniques to help restore balance and harmony to the body with the benefits of massage. These techniques include Swedish massage, deep tissue massage, myofascial release, reflexology, acupressure, Reiki, polarity sessions, body treatments, and craniosacral therapy. Each of these modalities has its own unique benefits and can be used to help restore balance in the body.
I also offer energy healing sessions that involve working with the chakras and the body's energy centers. These sessions are designed to help restore balance and harmony to the body, mind, and spirit during your daily life.
