As a full-time professional massage therapist since 2001, I bring to my practice a wealth of experience and knowledge.
My massage training comes from The Swedish Institute in New York City, where I received over 1600 hours of massage training in Eastern and Western techniques at one of the most highly rated massage schools in the country. I have since received further training in deep-tissue/medical massage, lomi lomi, reflexology, visceral massage, and pregnancy massage.
I enjoy staying inspired in my practice by continually seeking new perspectives and receiving regular massage. Prior to starting my own practice, I worked at Aveda spas Shanti and Habitude, as well as several local chiropractic offices.
I look forward to providing client-centered massage therapy that is adapted to your specific needs and preferences. It gives me great pleasure to see my clients walk away with their pain relieved and in a state of relaxation.
Outside of massage I enjoy dance, yoga, painting and spending time with my husband and daughter.

I offer the following types of massage as part of my West Seattle massage therapy practice:
All modalities can be used to fit your needs.
Deep Tissue Massage
Addresses specific tension and pain in the body through the use of trigger point massage, myo-fascial release, and deep Swedish massage. Medium to strong pressure.
A relaxing massage using Swedish and LomiLomi to increase circulation and deepen an inner state of serenity.
A Japanese style massage done through loose comfortable clothing that uses pressure points and stretches to balance the energy channels known as meridians.
Use of light touch modalities, polarity and cranio-sacral, to de-stress the emotional and physical body.
Massage tailored for the specific needs of a mom-to-be during all three trimesters.
Denise also offers hypnotherapy as an effective pathway to rapid personal change.
By tapping into this relaxed, comfortable state, you will access your subconscious, helping to get to the root of behaviors and feelings, which creates lasting transformation.
