A gentle holding of the sacrum, spine, and cranium with powerful and deep release of fascial restrictions, allowing freer flow of movement.
I am honored to participate with you in your journey toward optimal wellness through both massage and bodywork as well as nutritional microscopy.
With the intention of enhancing the body-mind-spirit connection, I tailor my wellness practice around listening to each client's body story.
Accepting. Holding. Listening. Allowing. Releasing
In sacred, healing space, we discuss your goals and what you would like to achieve with your session or series of sessions; how your body is doing in general; what you eat; whether there is anything going on in your life that you see might be related to your pain or condition, and if the pain or condition could speak, what it might say.With patience, presence, compassion, and skilled technique, I tune in and explore with you the unwinding of your body-mind-spirit toward alignment, balance, and harmony. Together we facilitate profound and lasting change within. (more…)
Aroma Therapy with Therapeutic Essential Oils
By connecting with your body's innate intelligence, therapeutic-grade essential oils stimulate your body's natural healing response and have long been appreciated for their uplifting, calming, and clarifying effects on emotional wellness. They are vibrationally charged, multi-faceted and complex. Depending on the specific constituents in the oil, you may begin to feel the release of negative emotions, the soothing of undue muscle tension, or experience the cleansing effect of the oils as your body eliminates toxins.Come experience the benefits of my growing apothecary of therapeutic-grade Young Living essential oils. Therapeutic grade essential oils support the body to come back into balance without harmful side effects of chemical based, perfume grade oils and products. Essential oils can diffuse throughout the blood and tissues instantly in a matter of seconds, and can quickly raise the frequency of the human body, restoring it to its normal, healthy level because they have a high bio-electrical frequency. Through the olfactory system, oils cross the brain-blood barrier and reach the amygdala and limbic parts of the brain that control our mood, emotions and behavior. This is oxygenating and nourishing to the brain. Essential oils can help us mitigate and diffuse our feelings of anxiety, stress, anger or other emotions. (more…)

Gudrun is a highly talented, skilled massage therapist! Amazing!! I’ve never experienced this type of therapeutic massage. Gudrun is so professional yet warm and eager to assist the client in every way. I had particular issues I wanted to address (lymphatic), and Gudrun was so appropriate for my needs.
Not only was the massage therapeutic, it was eduational and specific to my needs. Gudrun asked for input beforehand, she listened well and implemented. She had no trouble finding my “hot spots” and was able to work areas in one place that affected problems elsewhere. Gudrun is professional, courteous, thorough, and personable. An A+ experience!

Gudrun is a wonderful massage therapist. She gauges the intensity of your massage therapy according to your body’s needs and doesn’t use excessive force or intensity. She is flexible and intuitive so that she senses what muscles and tissues need work thus each massage session is unique and meets your body’s needs. She’s also just a really nice person and wonderful to get to know and talk to.
How lucky I was to have located Gudrun just by googling! Her massage is by no means “spa-esque”–it was tailored to my body’s individual needs after she pinpointed them. In 90 minutes she found every sore muscle, and I left feeling relaxed and energized. This was the best massage I have had on 3 continents. A bonus is Gudrun herself: she is a spiritual being with an amazing personal journey.
