Nurturing Touch Massage focuses on much more than muscular and neural physiology. Even though it is technically still considered massage, it transcends massage and incorporates other healing modalities and energies as well. It is a much deeper level of touch. Slower, more luxurious and with more intentional communication that you are important, safe and deserve to really relax.

Nurturing touch is calming, slow and very patient. The strokes are lavish and lingering. It has the intention of making the client feel as relaxed and complete as they can in this moment. It is non judgmental and accepts the client as they are without needing to change them. There are lots of additional nurturing touches and holds along with the Deep Lomi strokes.

Because of the personalized nature of these sessions and the need for a higher level of mutual trust and awareness between the therapist and the client, I like to do a more thorough intake session with you. We can do that right before your massage or on the phone if you prefer.  Make sure and let me know that you are interested in a Nurturing Touch Massage session when you make your appointment so that I can plan properly for your session.

If you are considering a Nurturing Touch massage session but you are not sure if it is right for you or if you just have additional questions; please feel free to schedule a complimentary consultation with me to help find out if it is right for you.


I also teach Nurturing Touch and Nurturing Touch Massage workshops for couples, infants, families and aging loved ones. Please contact me personally if you are interested in finding out more about any of these.
