Signature Wellness Massage

The heat penetrates for deeper work.  The depth and pressure are determined by your level of health, and what your tissue needs.  After our session you should feel deeply restored, and rejuvenated.

Manual Therapy for People with Cancer

After loosing my mother and one of my best friends to cancer, I dug into  learning the essentials for working with people with cancer, and offering comfort-oriented compassionate touch.  I have worked with all stages, and different types of cancers, people in treatment, end of life, and remission.  When working with people with cancer, the key is to place no additional demands on the body.  

I have had the honor of studying with Gail MacDonald, author of Medicine Hands, and Massage for People with Cancer.  I have taken these courses:

  • Massage for People with Cancer

  • Intensive at Oregon Health Sciences University (OHSU)

    • Hematology / Oncology & Radiation Clinics

  • End of Life Ritual and Celebrations (with Meg)

  • Dying with Dignity, Healing Form the Core, Nov 2020,

Manual Therapy with Monika

Manual Therapist since 2008

As a Licensed Manual Therapist (MA 60058291)

I have been trained in Traditional Swedish Massage, and Shiatsu (Acupressure).  I specialize in CranioSacral Therapy, mixed with Myofascial Release, and Visceral Manipulation/Motility. CranioSacral Therapy is my favorite way of working with the body; I believe it is better at resolving issues, and releasing trauma from the tissue.  Of course, many people love a traditonal massage.  My most requested massage is My Signature Wellness Session, most people prefer a 90 min session.

As a CranioSacral Therapist I tune in and follow the body's wisdom, and work with what your body presents at a session. CranioSacral Therapy is a gentle touch therapy, where I listen with my hands and work gently to release restrictions.  This enables the central nervous system to do it's job more efficiently and bring the body back to homeostasis.
