“I grew up with a passion for health and fitness and massage/bodywork has been present in my life in numerous forms and in varying degrees of influence. I first started learning and practicing Polarity Therapy in the mid 90’s. After a Polarity conference in Colorado I attended in ’97, I learned how medical influence can affect a birth; which led me to becoming a trained birth doula a few years later. This holistic approach to health science and the body sparked my interest in expanding my career and has led me to becoming a RMT. In my training I established a deep knowledge of anatomy and the effects massage has on all of the body systems.
As an RMT, I utilize a variety of techniques including: Swedish Massage, Hydrotherapy, Myofascial Release, Trigger Point Therapy, Joint Mobilizations, Proprioceptive Neuromuscular Facilitation (PNF), Remedial Exercise, Deep Tissue Massage, Pre-Natal and many more. I recognize that the benefits associated with Massage Therapy are as wide-ranging as those requiring treatment & personalize each treatment accordingly to keep it safe and effective for my clients.
After being in a horrific car accident in the summer of 2015, my knowledge was put to the test. Having this first hand experance has resulted in a greater appreciation and a better understanding of the physical and mental aspects of rehabilitation.”
