I graduated from The Ithaca New York Finger Lakes School of Massage in 2005 and became licensed to practice massage therapy in New York and New Jersey. Since then I have become certified in Esalan Massage in Big Sur, California, as well as The Old Medicine Hospital in Chaing Mai, Thailand. Every summer I have taken courses in Ayurvedic Massage with Dr. Vasant Lad. My travels throughout Southeast Asia and the Middle East are also incorporated through my modalities.
Sessions incorporate a wide range of modalities, with an emphasis on Esalen Massage®, trigger point, deeper bodywork and sound healing. I receive each client with presence and connection, catering to what they need and holding space for total relaxation.
Shafa is the word used for "healing" in the eastern persian tradition.
