Life in the time of Covid 19- update 5/13/2020

By Order of the Mayor of DC and the Dept. of Health, massage businesses are ordered to cease practicing until June 8th at which time the situation will be evaluated to determine if it is safe to resume working on people.  It could be months.

My practice is closed until the Mayor gives the okay to resume working.

Use for any kind of sessions.


A)                 Get $550 worth of bodywork for $500

(an extra $50) – May be paid in 2 installments


This package is renewable.  When you renew this you will get an extra $75 in credit for the second round. (Pay $500 get $575 credit)

Are you an active adult who wants to keep playing hard as you age?  Check out this Blog post from Laura Di Franco on how Zero Balancing made a huge difference for her.




In April 2017 I was interviewed by a fashion blogger from the Bravo Network about facial cupping.  Check out her article


DEEP MASSAGE  The Lauterstein Method – advanced techniques for well-being

This is a novel approach to body relaxation with influences from Zero Balancing, Rolfing, Myofascial Release and Cranio-Sacral.


Zero Balancing  (ZB)

ZB increases feelings of health and well-being

Releases stress and improves energy flow in our bodies

Reduces pain and discomfort

Supports us through transitions

Amplifies the sense of connection, peace and happiness


Rejuv Miracles : The Natural Face-Lift

Based on ancient sacred wisdom to open energy flows in the body by engaging nerve centers and employing focused patterned strokes to give a natural uplifted look.  This is true table nirvana.
