My work focus is Orthopedic and Sports Massage, and Exercise Therapy. My goal is to help you restore function so you may return to, and maintain, an active, healthy lifestyle. I devote every session to the specific needs of each client to support their journey toward postural alignment and wellness.
I specialize in movement dysfunction and pain management. Integrating advanced techniques from Orthopedic Massage, and Musculoskeletal Alignment Therapy, I utilize mobility exercises combined with hands on manual therapy to restore alignment and function, and improve performance.
Myoskeletal Therapy effectively works with the musculoskeletal system and requires an integrative approach addressing the nervous, muscular and connective tissue systems simultaneously.
I am a Certified Master Myoskeletal Alignment and Massage Therapist, and Life-Certified by the National Academy of Sports Medicine as a Corrective Exercise Specialist. Modalities include advanced studies in Medical Massage, Neuromuscular Release, Sports Massage, ART, PIR, Cupping, and Muscle Energy Techniques.
These wide-ranging skills have been put to excellent use to address individual and special challenges, as well as treating elite and recreational athletes at national and regional run events, and athletes in many different fields. I began in massage therapy to help improve my own structural alignment by learning anatomy, movement, and the importance of good posture in movement and at rest. My diligent approach to massage / therapy ensures the most relevant and carefully tailored treatments are administered to each, and every client.
