As a trans person and former competitive athlete, living in my body has been a journey. I’ve struggled to reconcile physical and psychological pain, to accept the limits of my body, and to find gratitude in what it teaches me every day. I’ve also experienced the transformative power of finding joy, pride, and comfort in my own skin. In my life, I’ve sought out numerous therapeutic modalities to heal the pain and bring me into my body. Without a doubt, bodywork and yoga/meditation have been the most effective in helping heal my physical, mental, and spiritual self. I am grateful to be able to offer these same modalities to others. I am a certified massage therapist and owner of St. Albans Massage & Bodywork, located at 142 N. Main St., St. Albans, VT on the 2nd floor of the Franklin Lodge building. I work Wednesdays, Thursdays, every other weekend. At St. Albans Massage & Bodywork, I offer body-positive massage therapy services, specializing in Deep Tissue, Swedish, and Thai Massage modalities. Each session is curated to meet your individual goals and needs, whether that is addressing specific areas of pain or tension, achieving a state of deep relaxation, or the management of chronic conditions. I am affirming and inclusive of clients of various ages, cultures, disabilities, gender identities and expressions, races, sexualities, and sizes, and I am LGBTQ+, BIPOC, veteran, and fat friendly. I am a graduate of the Wellness Massage Center & Institute (VT) and received additional training in the Forearm Fusion technique at the Academy of Massage Therapy and Bodyworks (PA). I am also a certified yoga and meditation instructor and a member of the American Massage Therapy Association and the Association of Bodywork & Massage Professionals.
