'Our structure is designed to remain in motion'
Thank you so much for your interest in my work.
I am a licensed massage and bodywork therapist LMBT CA #76349 and am offering massage therapy and movement education in Davis, Sacramento and San Francisco, CA. I teach Continuing Education Courses regionally and nationally.
I was born and grew up in Berlin, Germany. I hold a BFA in Dance and Choreography from the University of North Carolina School of the Arts and a MA/MFA in Scene and Costume Design and Scenography from the Technische Universität Berlin, Germany. I have been working as a massage therapist in both the US and in Germany since 1991. I graduated from the ASMY in 2009. I taught movement science at Salem College for several years with great enthusiasm and continue studying the complexity of life and human movement with the Axis Syllabus, who inspire my work profoundly.
As a massage therapist, I firmly believe that movement and movement education is an essential and irreplaceable part in prevention of and recovery from injury. Movement and manual therapy are uniquely entwined in my work and in my life. I encourage everyone to look into www.axissyllabus.org.

I am inspired by the healing power of touch, by movement, the body, by the healing and freeing qualities of water and by individual, creative expression.
I believe in listening and responding rather than attempting to impose methods or set routines onto individuals who all have uniquely different needs.
My studies with the Axis Syllabus International Research Community (www.axissyllabus.org) have profoundly inspired and shaped my work in recent years. I continue to be amazed at how important movement is, and at how complexly interwoven it is with the rest of our physical and emotional well-being and function.
I dedicate my work to integrating movement and manual therapy. Once the body's components all begin working in agreement with each other, alignment is a natural result, which facilitates agility and freedom from pain.
So: there is nothing you 'have to do', like specific exercises, etc; you just learn to become aware of your body's arrangement, and how it is constructed , which helps you understand natural alignment and gentle use of your body.
