INTERSECTIONAL CARE

Who is massage for?

All bodies can benefit from massage, including:

Large Bodies

Fatness is not a moral or physical "failing": we could all eat the same, exercise the same, exist in the same environments...and our bodies would still look different, feel different, and present in different sizes and weights. Fatness is not a barrier to care.

I offer: tables that hold 150-250kg, in-home massage, body props, and a floor massage mat option

Queer Bodies

Gender and sexuality exists on a spectrum. We can hold difficult, painful, and complicated emotions around how our bodies look + behave. 

Therapeutic touch can be confronting because of past experiences we've had in our private and professional interactions.

Queerness is not a barrier to care.

I offer: a space for all physical and emotional presentations, inclusive language and consideration, privacy, respect

Disabled Bodies

We do not all move through the world with the same level of ease. 

Disability presents itself in a myriad of ways, and for the vast majority it is an inescapable inevitability if not a current, daily experience.

Disability is not a barrier to care.

I offer: client-centered care, in-home massage options, flexible payment options, body-centric approach, assistants welcome

Visibly-Racialized Bodies

In the historical and current world, people have been and are judged by, and are treated differently due to, the color of their skin. There is a vast inequity and deep, internalized commitment to inequality that we must all push back against and eradicate from ourselves and our institutions.

Skin color is not a barrier to care.

I offer: solidarity and mutual aid to visibly-racialized communities, reduced or nonexistent massage rates, commitment to equity in care environments
