Located in the St. Helen/Theater District of Tacoma, WA in the Passages building, at 708 Broadway (not far from McMenamins Elks Temple!), Artful Touch Suite 103 is on the ground floor. Simply enter the Passages Building, veer ever so slightly right, and walk as far back as you can get!
Paid street parking is limited to 2 hours, costs $1 per hour, and is available on Broadway and surrounding streets. There's also a small set of free 2-hour spaces just north of the Passages building on Broadway, if you're feelin' lucky.
Whether in contact via massage or through vocal guidance as in Somatic Unwinding® (and even through the grief recovery program I also offer), communicating deliberately with your built-in message center is the underlying intention of my work. My bodywork education, personal health experiences, social justice research, and athletic experience have all encouraged me to see our emo-mind-body-things as highly intelligent, neurally-interconnected systems.
My touch is confident and satisfying. I like including multiple experiential elements into bodywork which engages and focuses your perception on what is physically happening during manual therapies, like having you breathe into my strokes, visualize inside your body, or resist against me. My bread and butter techniques include Neuromuscular Therapy, Myofascial Release, and Swedish Deep Tissue. I tend to go easy on my avocado/sweet almond oil blend.
My approach to Somatic Unwinding® is twofold: I use the modality to provide an immersive, physically meditative experience in which you have all the power in your personal exploration of your felt sense (which works great for touch-averse, neuro-recovering, and highly sensitive people). I also utilize the results of that experience to focus the manual therapy approaches which may follow.
The human vessel is a remarkably adaptable, creative machine, which will do incredible things to acclimate to the stresses placed upon it: including limiting itself. In the flourish of modern life, the signals of our chronic distress become all too easily ignored, often intellectualized away rather than acknowledged effectively.
The moments that we become aware that we have not been listening, and are called to do something new about it, are sacred opportunities. Honoring these turning points, and assisting in navigating and maintaining them, are at the core of what Artful Touch is about, offering unique, goal-oriented bodywork that is versatile, affirming, educational, relaxing, replenishing, and fun!
What are you waiting for?
Together, with a respect for the ingenious path your vessel has taken in order to cope and get you to where you are today, it's possible to bring you profound and lasting results; probably sooner than you might think! Contact me to set up a session today!
