Massage therapy for LGBTQIA+ folks and marginalized community members

I believe that by providing more care for our bodies, we can reduce stress, increase health, and reduce the effects in the body of systemic factors like racism, transphobia, ableism, fatphobia, and the general stress of the world around us -- bolstering our bodies as resistance and wisdom. 

If you've felt left out or don't belong in today's healthcare system, come to me to get treated with respect and compassion.

Types of Massages

What to expect

I will send you an email with more information soon after booking. If you don't get one from me please let me know because sometimes I forget. 

Please arrive around 10 minutes early, if possible, and plan to be here for around 1 hour and 15 minutes. This will allow time for us to chat, you to change, etc. 


COVID safety: Please wear a mask unless for a medical reason. I'm fully vaccinated for COVID and Monkeypox. If you are not feeling well for any reason including any flu like symptoms or unusual skin sores/rashes, please contact me as soon as you aren't feeling well. Let me know if you would like me to take a rapid test the morning of your session.


Please wear comfortable flexible clothes, so that you have the option of keeping your clothes on during the massage if that is what you feel most comfortable with in the moment. I am able and happy to provide massage with you wearing any amount of clothing. Please undress to whatever makes you most comfortable, so you can relax the most.


When you arrive for the session, we will chat for a few minutes about your goals for the session. I work from a person centered, body neutral, trauma informed, queer and trans literate perspective. I strive to make treatments a collaboration between you, the client, and me, the practitioner. We will chat about what areas of your body hold tension, what you would like me to work on, and if there are areas you don't want me to touch. You can share whatever history about your body that you feel is relevant. During the session, we will work together to achieve your goals for the session. If you want to be quiet and relax, that could be a goal! 


Consent is very important to my practice, so if at any point you feel uncomfortable or want something to be different, please let me know. You don't have to find the right words or worry about hurting my feelings. It's my job to listen and adjust the session so that you are comfortable and are getting what you want. It's your body and your time. 


Payment will be accepted at the end of the session. I prefer cash and venmo, but can also take Paypal and credit card.

Please let me know if you have any questions, concerns, or accessibility needs before the session.


Physical access: there is an elevator lift to get in the front door and the office is on the first floor. The larger accessible bathroom is on the basement floor and reached by an elevator. 

Allergies: I use jojoba oil for my massages and a slightly scented laundry detergent.


The massage table is extra wide and has a 750 lb weigh capacity. 

Accessibility Limitations/Areas for Improvement: 
- The massage table does not have an automated lift to easily move up and down.

- Language: I speak English and do not sign. I am very happy get creative with you to use a translation app or write things down to communicate, but I know this is not ideal.

- Masks are not required in the hallways and waiting room.

- Massage is not covered by most health insurance

- My body is white, physically able, small fat, and comes with the privileges those identities hold.
