Integrated Stone Therapy for Deeper Healing
Your customized treatment at Laughing Buddha Bodywork includes:
Hot Stone Therapy
Since experiencing my first stone massage in massage school, I remain convinced that nothing else can compare.
In the Dakota Sioux stone medicine tradition I learned at Cedar Stone School of Massage, my stones become active massage tools to melt away stress and ease the way for deeper work. Cold stones, often used on the face, reduce inflammation through vasoconstriction.
Who doesn’t want to enjoy more ease of movement? Joint mobilizations optimize the body for any kind of movement and feel great too. They include assisted stretching techniques, passive range of motion, and bodywork from Chinese (Tui Na) and Thai traditions.
While needed mobilizations are part of your massage, you can also choose a mobilization-only session, and wear your workout clothes on the table for a completely different kind of bodywork experience.
My work incorporates Western approaches like Swedish, deep tissue, myofascial release and neuromuscular (trigger point therapy). I also borrow from healing traditions of other cultures, including Chinese, Thai and Native American.
Deep tissue massage
Dancers know the body…and know pain! I was fortunate to discover the benefits of massage early in my dance career. Now retired from dance, I’m thrilled to offer them to you.
Developing my touch since 1980, the broad education I pursued at Cedar Stone School of Massage (where I taught from 2016 to 2022) prepares me to help you with all your massage goals, from relaxation to tissue change and structural integration.
When you book an appointment, I’m able to practice what I truly love: using the power of human touch to bring relief, balance and wellness to others.
