Miri practices Deep Tissue, Craniosacral Therapy, and Thai Yoga Massage at her private practice, Ritual Body Therapy, in Oakland, California. She is a former literature professor, who left the world of academia to follow her heart and pursue the healing arts. She completed her massage certification at the McKinnon Body Therapy Center in 2010 and studied Craniosacral Therapy with the Upledger Institute.

Miri truly believes that your body has the inner wisdom to heal itself, that your body is its best healer. She sees her job as guiding that self-healing process through intuitive touch and locating where your body holds onto past trauma and blockages.

A typical session integrates Thai stretches, Craniosacral holds, and firm Deep Tissue, to release muscular and emotional blockages. She varies pressure from deep to light, depending on your needs. Known as “Mircat” at festivals, Miri is often seen giving massages with cat ears.

Healing Description

I offer bodywork that centers around a deep listening to your body’s inner wisdom. I believe that your body knows exactly how to heal itself, and I see my role as a facilitator who helps that process. I primarily integrate Craniosacral holds, Thai Yoga stretches, and Deep Tissue techniques to work with both your physical and energetic bodies.
