Lindsay graduated in 2011 from the Ralston School of Massage Therapy in her hometown of Reno, NV. The curriculum had endured time-tested revisions and gave the students opportunities to volunteer at sports massage clinics in the surrounding Tahoe vistas for triathlon events. Lindsay progressed to attaining level 1 and 2 Traditional Thai Massage certifications at Spirit Winds in Nevada City, CA. She has fallen under the token of luck and had private training sessions from dear friends in the area who were also anatomy gurus and massage school instructors.
She initially embarked on the path of bodywork to come to a deeper understanding of how to assist her yoga students. There was no intention to actually perform massage, but while in school she received sessions leading to cathartic releases of emotions. She has since found massage helpful in healing the balance of giving and receiving in relationships and understands the meaning of therapeutic touch. Lindsay found massage to be an ally as a performing artist, and that receiving skillful bodywork was essential for staying grounded on stage and elevated in the body.
As a recipient of her sessions, clients can expect to get their needs met as Lindsay values being in service. She seeks to understand what the body is asking for while taking into account your direct feedback and requests. Intuitive and inquisitive, sessions with her involve a scientific approach with a spiritual understanding that the body is your temple for expression. Using various techniques such as myofascial release, joint manipulation, trigger point therapy and long flowing strokes, Lindsay prides herself on giving satisfactory pressure so that not only is the body being thoughtfully addressed but so is your perception of what makes a massage excellent.
Outside of the clinic, Lindsay teaches Vinyasa and Yin yoga. She is delighted to be a new resident of Portland and expects to find opportunities to perform on stage as a belly dancer and hooper, to get published as a writer, and discover soulful connections of all sorts.
