Hands on Health
Release, Relax, Restore
After over a decade in a variety of medical settings, I've come to believe in the healing power of skilled and caring human touch. Massage reminds the body that it is capable of greater wellbeing. My goal is to empower you through hands-on work to improve your health, whether that’s lessening your pain naturally, teaching you important injury prevention skills, or helping you to relax and unwind.
"When you touch one thing with deep awareness,
you touch everything."
- Lao Tzu
THERAPEUTIC FULL BODY MASSAGE
90 MIN- $180
Over the past decade I've studied and practiced many modalities of body work. When you come for your treatment, I'll be crafting a treatment specific to your needs pulling from my background in these modalities:
Deep tissue, Craniosacral, Gua Sha, Hot Stone, Pre/Post-natal, Reflexology, Thai massage, Shiatsu, Sports massage, and the ever classic Swedish.
Correcting your posture is key to changing the patterns of pain you experience daily. No therapeutic massage would be complete without homework to keep those effects lasting longer. As part of each massage there will be recommendations post-session of stretches and exercises to empower you to make lasting change.
JAW, NECK, AND SHOULDERS
45 MIN - $110
Perhaps you're a professional singer with some jaw or tongue tension and you're looking for help retraining those muscles. Maybe endless Zoom meetings have you clenching your jaw all day, or perhaps you wake up and realize you've been grinding your teeth all night. Specific training in TMJ pain relief means I can help. (And if I can't, I know the best people to refer you to.) We will focus not only on the muscles of the jaw from the outside as well as with gloved intraoral technique, but the muscles of the neck and shoulders.

Neela is one of the most gifted massage therapists I have ever gone to. I've experienced posture problems since I was a child and have regularly visited massage therapists for the last 10 years. I found Neela by chance, and working with her has been life changing! She helped me with a hip problem. I have no more pain in my hip and a much greater range of motion. I consider Neela a true healer.
I visited Neela after my daughter recommended it. I was impressed with Neela's professionalism and knowledge. She has helped me with some problems with my arm and hip and I have experienced significantly less pain since working with her. Neela has also been able to help me release a lot of my stress and tension.
