HI, I am Kel and I utilize massage as a radical tool for you to be comfortable in your wonderful body.
My massage is therapeutic, soothing, consistent and full of presence. My style is a blend of Esalen massage, craniosacral therapy, Feldenkrais movements and a sprinkle of deep tissue manual therapy. My goal is to soothe your system into a parasympathetic state where healing happens. The deeper and slower we can get your breath, the more potent the healing effects. I believe in the body’s natural and innate ability to heal itself and that belief is fundamental to my work.
I completed my initial massage training in the Sonoran desert in 2009. I had the pleasure of deepening my craft while living and working at the Esalen Institute in Big Sur, CA from 2014-2020 before landing and rooting in pacific northwest soil.
When I’m not massaging, I am mothering, writing/reading or wandering. In the summer, you’ll find me in the river, and in the winter I’m checking out all the hues of green the forest offers. I’m also a big fan of authentic relating and circling.
Feel free to arrive 10 minutes early to our appointment and I’ll have some tea ready to sip. Then, we can begin to drop in.
