Welcome - Music Mountain Massage and Wellness in Bethel & Essex, VTBetter Health Starts Here!

My goal is to help you achieve optimum health and wellness. Having evolved over thousands of years, Acupressure and Chinese Medical Massage is one of the oldest continually practiced medical modalities in the world. They are used to prevent and treat disease, relieve pain, balance mood, enhance athletic performance, increase fertility, and improve overall health and wellness.

Chinese Medical Massage is a safe, effective, chemical-free way to
promote your body's self-healing abilities.

When I first began practicing, my patients, would say they had never felt a massage much like Amma. Later, I introduced Zen Shiatsu, which is another fabulous treatment method most usually done on a Shiatsu mat. Neither is exclusive to itself. Many times I cross modalities in order to better get to the root of the dis-ease. Amma Rooted in Tui Na is traditionally done with circular digital and/or thumb pressure where as Shiatsu is more stationary static pressure as it moves along the Meridians though out the massage.

Pain is diagnostic. My work does not seek to elaborate pain, but uses it to determine imbalances. Breaking through a muscle knot is not what I practice. Through Chinese Medicine, we are taught to meet the tension and sit with it for a few breaths. Notice change, and let the body do what it does naturally. 

My mission is to help you discover a healthier, happier, more balanced lifestyle. Having seen the profound positive effects that Bodywork through Chinese Medicine can have, I am sincerely grateful to be able to share these benefits with my patients. Together we can work to achieve your health and wellness goals.

The innovative ZYTO scan technology facilitates an interface between a computer and the human body.

The resulting dynamic data exchange, known as a biosurvey, involves computer-generated signatures called “Virtual Items” and recording the body’s galvanic skin response, a well-developed method of monitoring stress responses that is commonly used in applications like polygraph tests and biofeedback

The Concept of Qi

Welcome - Music Mountain Massage and Wellness in Bethel & Essex, VTThis is the Chinese character for Qi. Qi is the body's energy that is worked with to assure free flow and no pain. This is represented by the composition of this character, where Mi represents the body's functions, and Yun represents the energy flow/Qi that circulates.

Qi is both matter and vapor.
