“I shall listen to the language of your soul as the shore listens to the story of the waves…”
Listening to you is root of my practice
Deep listening comes naturally to me and learning the many languages of the body has been one of the greatest gifts of my life, teaching me that a relationship of trust must be cultivated both on and off the table. Building trust is intrinsic to getting results and continuing to serve you in your health and wellness needs. What this means is we talk about you wellness goals before the session and I devote our time together on the table to asking your body what it needs. Its a relationship built on communication. I learn the language of your body and help support you in tending to that relationship yourself. Returning to your own physical, emotional experience and your greatest ally, your body.
Through my own personal meditation, journey work and ceremony I have devoted myself to the practice of Shama.

Want total and complete relaxation? Want to be massaged and held by an amazing practitioner who not only has the most amazing sense of intuitive touch but also knows how the mind/body connection works? Then book with Selina today. Selina has experience not only in massage therapy but also in pre and perinatal attachment work and issues related to trauma and the impact it has on your physical body as well as your emotional body too.
Selina has a true intuitive gift when it comes to working with the body and the spirit. She has a gentle spirit, soft and very yin, but she’s also able to give “tough love” when working out muscle knots and tightness.
Selina is a “muscle whisperer” of sorts. She talks to the muscles, not out loud, but figuratively and she integrates different styles into her massage practice to help release pain and release stagnation.
I own a massage school in Denver and I keep hoping one day Selina will teach at my school. Her ability to massage goes way beyond technique, it goes into a more spiritual realm of listening, waiting, and facilitating change at both a physical and spiritual level.
Selina is one of the most compassionate, thoughtful, and talented massage therapists I’ve ever known. Her attention and energy during the massage is always focused on my needs.
Each session is tailored to meet you where you are. Selina brings a presence to her work that puts you at ease. Any hesitation leaves the moment you step into her office.
If you are looking for a place to relax and rejuvenate then stop by for one of the best massages of your life. Serenity is only a phone call away. You will thank your self for the needed rest.
