about zinnia


I have been a Licensed Massage Practitioner (LMP) since 2001.
I am skilled in various techniques including Craniosacral, Neuromuscular Technique, Deep Tissue Massage, Swedish Massage and Sports Massage.
In addition, my practice includes experience with injury evaluation and treatment, hydrotherapy, pregnancy massage and Reiki.

I received the foundation of my massage training from 2000-2001 at Brian Utting School of Massage (BUSM) in Seattle, Washington. I was also fortunate enough to be an instructor at BUSM for two years early on in my career as a massage therapist.

My interest in craniosacral work began while I was attending massage school. Over the years, I have taken a few different craniosacral courses but it was not until after my husband and I returned to Seattle that I had the opportunity to expand my practice with this wonderful modality. In May 2016, I completed the Craniosacral Certification program offered by Pat O'Rourke and I am profoundly grateful for the opportunity to share this gentle and deeply potent work with my clients.

I currently maintain a small private practice as well as a part-time schedule at Paul Perrotta Massage Associates, both based here in Seattle, Washington. In the past, I have worked in various settings, including the Sonnenalp Resort (Vail, Colorado), Seattle Tennis Club (Seattle, Washington) and Massage Therapy Center (Los Angeles, California).

Because of my personal experience with voiceover & acting, music & talent representation, and sports & dance, I especially enjoy working with
athletes & artists of all kinds.

Whether I am working with an elite athlete or a desk jockey, a stay-at-home mom or a professional musician, I bring the same level of intent and specificity to my work and – whenever possible – I try to address the roots of the problems, not just the surface issues. I also strongly believe that relaxation and therapeutic bodywork are not mutually exclusive. True relaxation is ultimately therapeutic and therapeutic work is the only way real, lasting relaxation and balance will be achieved.
