Somatic Massage:

My role as a practitioner is to help each client gain a sense of their own body and its patterns, through massage and movement. Individualized Sessions help clients identify, relax, and release patterns of trauma, stress, and tension. Malia uses a range of tools including: Fascia unwinding; Supported movement and assisted stretching; Deep tissue massage; Myofascial release; Abdominal massage; Craniosacral holding; Quiet, slow forms of touch that communicate with the body with gentleness and calm; and subtle methods to integrate shifts and changes.  Every session is unique — responding to your body’s needs.

Covid Update:

I am fully vaccinated with boosters for Covid-19.  I am currently seeing clients who are not actively experiencing symptoms and have not been exposed recently to someone known to have Covid-19.  Proof of vaccination is not required. I will wear a N94+ mask during the entire session. Clients must wear a mask while entering and leaving sessions, due to Family Tree Clinic policy.  During sessions your mask is optional.  I am happy to answer any questions you have about Covid-safety before you receive your session.  You may reach me through filling out this form.
