What People Say
"If you listen to your body when it whispers, you won't have to hear it scream."
When the check engine light comes on in our car we don't say "well, my car is getting older, this is expected"...we would take it to a mechanic and have the car taken care of.
When we feel stiff, tight, have lost range of motion and strength, or feel pain in our body, we often do say "well, I'm getting older, this is expected".
Actually, stiff, tight muscles, loss of range of motion and strength, or pain is your body's check engine light. Sometimes though, just like our cars, we need some expert help to keep us running smoothly.
Hi, I'm Carolyn. I'm a licensed massage therapist and movement educator specializing in pain management and improving functional movement in active middle-age and older adults. I have over 15 years of experience working with people who want to feel better and move with more ease so they can keep doing the things they love to do as they age. Learn more.
I am a cyclist and I do weight training at least 3 times a week, and I am old and have had back issues since my 20's. I am extremely pleased with Carolyn's work on my many issues. I tend to overdo it when I exercise and she has the skill and patience to help me work out the stiffness and soreness I often inflict on myself. She is generous with some very useful suggestions on how to improve my fitness and how to avoid developing bad exercise habits. Most importantly, I have a particular problem with my upper back that started 10 years ago. I have been to MD's, chiropractors, physical therapists, and voodoo practitioners in an effort to relieve the pain with little success. The massage techniques that Carolyn uses has solved the problem. I am forever grateful to her for her work in keeping me pain-free.
“Always an amazing experience with amazing results! I truly have not found anyone else that can give the same type of relief to me with massage. And her yoga practices are amazing. I feel lighter and more flexible on all of my runs after class.”
“At the end of every yoga session I feel as if I’ve done a workout at the gym, had a massage, had an anatomy lesson, spent time meditating, and been to the spa!”
“Carolyn has been a grounding person for me. Her knowledge is fundamentally sound. She can fix the aches and pains physically as well mentally. She listens and evaluates. I appreciate her thoroughness.”
I wanted you to know just how therapeutic your class has been for me. I recently had a total knee replacement and the surgeon remarked on how lithe and flexible my body is which made the surgical intervention much less invasive than it normally would have been. Sincere gratitude to you Carolyn for your knowledge and expertise!
Carolyn listened well to my injury history, and displayed real interest in rooting out my challenges to tailor the treatment to best improve my functionality and comfort.
Carolyn took the time to listen to me and what I needed. Her massage was personalized and focused on the areas that were troublesome. I will book with her again.

Carolyn saw me in an emergency situation of severe hip spasms. She knew how to dig in and find the problem spots. Loved being treated by her.
