We spend a large part of our waking hours unconscious of our bodies and engaged in pattern-dependent, habitual tasks. I feel that there is always an opportunity to slow down, stop in our tracks, and reorient ourselves in our bodies. But we are social beings and we need help!
My approach to bodywork is grounded in tai chi and dance. Through a flowing, subtly powerful touch, I encourage my clients to deepen their awareness of breathing, body alignment, and natural internal flexibility and strength.
I work intuitively with each person to address their daily and long-term concerns, to build a deep and caring massage treatment that meets that person where she or he is at in that moment.
Though I have a background in martial arts and dance, for twenty years I found myself sitting behind a computer screen, working as a Japanese/English translator. The yearning to work more consciously with my hands and entire body brought me (back) to bodywork.
In my spare time, I love to work with my hands – gardening, cooking, rescuing furniture, delving the luster in old things… A New York/Massachusetts native, I lived in Kyoto, Japan for 15 years before moving back in 2011. (Bio here.) I now live in Cambridge with my wife and our two soccer-crazy sons.
