Welcome to Peace at Hand Massage Therapy

A note from the therapist..........

Peace comes from within. Do not seek it without.  ~Buddha

Peace at Hand was born of the belief that peace comes from within, and that we are at our best when we have a quiet mind, an easeful body, and a joyful spirit.  Injury, tension, life events and the simple busy-ness of living in a metropolitan area can all shift us away from our natural, peaceful state. Sometimes we need a helping hand to bring us back to it.

Through a unique blend of massage, stretching and energy work, I can become a guide on your journey towards pain management, relaxation, body awareness or pregnancy relief.  During your individualized bodywork session, you will be given tools to find your way back in to balance.  Massage is never something that I do to fix you, but rather a subtle, often subconscious, conversation between the two of us.

It is an unfortunate truth that feeling centered and comfortable in one’s body has come to be seen as a luxury. I strive to correct that, making massage accessible to every body.  My studio space is located at The Spa Room in the Tenleytown area of Washington, DC and is accessible by public transportation.  Free street parking is available in the neoghborhood surrpunding the building.  In addition to hands-on massage, I teach self-care and public massage classes, and hold regular seated massage events. I also offer a sliding payment scale and make myself available for out-calls on a case by case basis.  All massage services are by appointment only.

Please click through the site, feel free to contact me with any questions (I love to talk about my work!) and remember to take a moment to breathe.

Namaste.

There is nothing particularly special that you need to do, but here are a few things to keep in mind:


Its a good idea to plan for a little extra time to arrive at the space and get settled. Rushing in never sets a nice tone for relaxation, and means that I will have to spend extra time settling you that could otherwise be spent differently.

You will probably be most comfortable if you avoid eating immediately before you get on the table.  Its not a bad idea to give yourself an hour to digest. 

Likewise, try to avoid caffeine and other stimulants within several hours of your massage.

Consider how you dress for your appointment.  Depending on the sort of work we do, it is possible that a small amount of lubricant or essential oil may remain on your skin.  I haven't yet had a client complain, but be aware that those products can stain delicate fabric, and that essential oils are sometimes slow to fade.  As a rule, I try to avoid wearing anything that can't be thrown in the wash.  You may also find that after your massage, you feel hesitant to put on restructive clothing or uncomfortable shoes, so keep that in mind as well.
