Circus arts can be hard on the body! Luckily, we have a number of excellent bodywork professionals in the Versatile Arts family, all of whom understand the demands made on an aerialist’s body. Some of these folks will give discounts to members of VA community, so please do tell them we referred you.

I provide treatment for injuries old and new, sports massage to keep you going at your best, pregnancy massage to help ease aches and swelling, and always mixing in the right amount of relaxation massage for your body and mind to find their balance. I have a handy online scheduler on my website for your convenience, or you can email or call for appointments.
I accept cash, check, credit cards and FSA/HSA cards. I bill PIP and L&I. I can provide a medical receipt if you want to submit it to your insurance company for reimbursement. $10 discount for VA folks.

Soma is a form of bodywork that uses a systematic approach to re-educate the body to be aligned in gravity. Over time, the body can forget its natural alignment. Postural deficiencies, repetitive movements, and injury compensation can lead to imbalance and tension which, uncorrected, can lead to pain and decreased mobility. With a focus on the connective tissue and its relation to structure, Soma re-balances the body and restores its natural alignment by combining deep-tissue techniques with movement education and greater body awareness. With improved alignment, the body experiences improved posture, less pain and greater range of motion — it can move effortlessly with ease and grace.
Soma has the greatest benefit when experienced as “the series” — 11 sessions, each designed to address specific areas of the body while bringing balance to the whole. Standalone sessions are also available for treatment or maintenance or for those who do not wish the whole series. Single sessions are very effective but results will not be long-term.

I have been a professional aerialist and instructor for the past 17 years and I look forward to applying that knowledge to your care. Free screenings are available for Versatile Arts students.
