Lily has always felt calling towards healing massage from the age of a young girl. You could often find her making her rounds around the dinner table offering shoulder massage. So with a natural touch, she in her adult years went on to study many modalities in Bali, Indonesia, and then proceeded to enroll into a 600 hour training at renowned Berkana Institute upon returning to the States. She has since narrowed her studies, studying deeper modalities such as Mindful Expressionism.
She now practices with an integrative approach, offering nurturance while going deep within the layers of the tissue. She offers deep understanding the body while holding a grounded space, and offers in her practice: Facial Release, Deep Tissue Massage, and Trigger Point Therapy, as well as modalities such as Reflexology, Swedish Massage, and Hawaiian Lomi Lomi.
As a practitioner, my main focus is relaxation and helping, whether your needs are deep tissue or just a relaxing getaway. My services include deep tissue, Swedish, prenatal, shiatsu and lymph massage. The version of Shiatsu I perform is a relaxing acupressure session performed clothed on the floor. A Lymph massage is a very gentle flushing of your Lymphatic system to help your body with its own beautiful system of detoxifying the body. This type of massage can be useful to anyone with allergies, sinus pressure, back-up of lymph in areas of the body, and just to help with detox in general. My goal is to find the right treatment that can help you live a more relaxed life.
