Booking is currently closed until further notice due to Coronavirus, COVID-19, SARS-COVID-19.
I am greatly concerned about the emerging and still-unknown health impacts of COVID-19. As such, I am not currently taking appointments. I created a linktree so you can review data, science, and global news related to COVID-19. Obviously, my collection is only a collection and information is constantly updated so please seek out multiple qualified sources for the latest in C19.
If you decide getting a massage is important to you, I ask that you please weigh the risks. We can do things to reduce the risk of transmission. What we cannot keep you safe from is the coagulopathy and deep vein thrombosis caused by COVID-19 — regardless of if you are symptomatic or asymptomatic.
I care very much about my clients. To that end, I am not accepting new appointments until further notice.

Black Lives Matter! I continue to check and evaluate my biases, to recognize and call out the racist paradigm I was born into and continue to live in, and affirm the reality that racism has existed as a systemic form of resource control and abuse that benefits the few over the many; a system which benefits white people over all others. To this end, I continue to vote, volunteer, and when possible donate. I gathered a few resources in this linktree (which includes places to contribute your voice, your dollars, your time, as well as other linktrees and documents listing resources and educational material). Multnomah County Library has audio & electronic books available such as White Fragility, How to be an Anti Racist, Me & White Supremacy, So You Want to Talk About Race, White Awake, Stamped, The Invention of the White Race, and many others. Educate , be humble, stay awake, be kind, be an accomplice.
