Making massage accessible to all
Connecting with those in our communities who are most vulnerable and at risk for lack of shelter, food, touch, transportation and healthcare
Thich Nhat Hanh
Massage has always been a natural gift that I've shared with friends and family since a young age. In the spring of 2015, I graduated from Madison College Therapeutic Massage program with a focus in Swedish and clinical massage.
Practicing a mixed healing arts approach, I bring a unique experience blending combinations of Ashiatsu Deepfeet Bar Therapy, barefoot shiatsu, Shoshin Shiatsu, acupressure, deep tissue, trigger point work, swedish and hot stone massage, gua sha muscle scraping, cupping, guided meditation, breathwork, table thai, & aromatherapy.
Whether you are seeking to relax and rejuvenate with a more gentle and nurturing touch, need energetic and emotional space to be held for healing and releasing of scores these bodies keep, or are in need of more focused therapeutic work, I am here to support you on your journey in a safe space where you are always listened to, respected and seen with unconditional positive regard.
As a traveler and nomad at heart, I have lived and worked in communities with fellow healers and body workers throughout Wisconsin, Costa Rica, Hawai'i, México, and Egypt. The connections, additional approaches and techniques I've gained from these experiences continue to enrich my passion for massage, wellness, and my heart for people.
Massage and healthcare are not luxuries, but rather vital necessities to support wellness in order that we may live a happier and healthier life.
Every human on Earth deserves access to health care, and it is the mission of Nomadic Healing Arts to help make massage and other wellness therapeutics accessible, equitable and abundant.
I look forward to supporting you in your beautifully unique wellness journey.
Peace upon you السلام عليكم Paz a vosotros

Should I tip? It depends! Tipping an independent massage therapist in their own office is sometimes optional (though still much appreciated!), so check in individually with different places. At our home office, it is not considered a slight if you do not leave a tip. On the other hand, consider tipping your therapist if you're receiving a mobile massage or going to a spa! Spa therapists make only a fraction of what you paid for the massage.
How far do I disrobe? As much as you are comfortable. Generally, most clothing is removed for any massage involving lotion. Many clients prefer to keep their underwear on; this is completely okay and does not affect the massage. Your modesty is assured regardless by careful draping of the top sheet. If you feel nervous or uncomfortable and would prefer to stay clothed, just speak to your therapist about it - we are trained to accommodate such requests.
Is Nomadic Healing Arts a spa? Nomadic Healing Arts is not a spa, though we have many spa amenities. Retreats facilitated by Nomadic Healing Arts will vary in their locations over the moons and seasons to come.
*Nature's Healing Hills ~ Camping Retreat Center* will be home to many of 2023's retreats.
The campground is located outside of Hillsboro, in the Driftless Region of Wisconsin - aka the Ocooch Mountains, named after a small band of Native Americans living along the Kickapoo River pre-colonization.
Do you offer walk-ins? No walk-ins. Appointments are by advanced booking only.
How much talking is okay during a massage? Client's choice! If you strike up a conversation, we'll happily respond, and if you prefer to zone out, we remain silent. That said, any feedback about the massage itself is not only okay but highly encouraged! We want to give you the massage that you want, and open communication is important for that. If you'd like to talk about other things going on in your life as well, we are happy to lend an ear. Anything you say during the massage is generally treated as confidential.
I'm nervous that I might have gas, need to pee, or... or what if I experience sexual arousal?
Crying, laughing, other emotional releases, passing gas, body shakes/twitches, falling asleep, getting up to pee (let's remember to go beforehand), and yes, even sexual arousal, plus basically any and every other thing the human body and psyche do, can and may happen during any form of bodywork.
Please remember; We are simply beings being human and you are respected unconditionally with positive regard in this safe space.
