Whether you are caring for a loved one or care for others professionally, chance is you have experienced the signs of burnout:
Mental and physical exhaustion
A precarious sense of self.
For caregivers, choosing to care for yourself may not come easy. But, massage can be an important tool to bring your life back in balance. It can soften the hardened places in the body and soul. When you give yourself that time, you will recover a sense of spaciousness in your life that may have seemed lost.
By merely coming to be cared for, you make a choice for your wellness.
Once on the massage table, all you have to do is breath, receive, and let go.
After an hour of nurturing, and good care, you will come to a quieter place, from which you can skillfully and more mindfully do what needs to be done.
Should you wish, at the end of the session, you can take time to map out a plan for your ongoing self-care, as well as receive ongoing coaching for an additional cost.
Staying well in the face of challenge is a choice that is made from moment to moment. A therapeutic massage can help you remain aware of and act from that place of choice.

Professionally and personally Steven has come to deeply appreciate the intrinsic relationship between body and mind, and the necessity to attend to both to maintain wellness.
Steven brings to his practice a deep caring and an intuitive sense of what fosters healing, on and off the table.
