My Dedication to Manual Therapy and Rehabilitation
Educational Insight from my 14 years in practice.
I was introduced to therapeutic massage by accident - literally. Starting from early on I was in several car accidents leading me down a long and frustrating path of rehabilitation. I became interested in pursuing massage therapy when I experienced incredible pain relief from whiplash and chronic headaches through a clinically driven therapeutic massage treatment. I then fell instantly in love with massage when I took a workshop in 2004 and realized the field ignited a fascination inside of me that I did not know was there. It felt completely right for me in mind, body, and soul. I truly love to be a part of this profession and really enjoy working with my clients to achieve the results they are looking for,
My interest in medical and orthopedic bodywork has a long story attached to it but began the year I graduated school (2006) and took my first continuing education class which was a thorough introduction to the world of Neuromuscular massage. I realized how incredible it could be to work with clients specifically to help them to facilitate change and feel better! My constant quest in evolving my education every year is because I want to continue to study the complexities of the human body, keep up with the latest research in and related to my field, and learn how to best achieve the results my clients are looking for. Don't get me wrong, a general therapeutic massage can be amazing as well, however I feel that my uniqueness as a therapist is that I can do very customized work with differing conditions including but not limited to: people that have many differing pain patterns, especially those with repetitive strain injuries, sports injuries, whiplash, headaches, Temporomandibular joint dysfunction, low back pain, limited range of motion, neck, shoulder girdle & rotator cuff issues, pelvic imbalance, and arthritis.
Take care of your body with steadfast fidelity. the soul must see through these eyes alone, and if they are dim, the whole world is clouded.
-Johann Wolfgang Von Goethe
