Learning and growing my skills and ability has been somewhat of a passion of mine over the last 13 years. I want my clients to feel better and be able to do the things they love without pain. As a massage therapist, I enjoy applying my knowledge to help clients feel better and function well. I work with my clients as a team to help them understand why they are feeling a particular way. Together, we create strategies to modify pain and discomfort to suit their needs as they work towards their goals. Working together is going to give us the best outcomes.
My passion for massage therapy is working with clients who are hitting roadblocks with their training.
Most of my clients are dealing with an injury; related to a car accident, surgery, repetitive strain, or a sporting incident. My style of practice also tends to attract the active community and those wanting to participate in their recovery.
I tend to use information from various courses I have taken over the years to help guide treatments. For muscle-related issues, I use more Functional Range Release® methods. For joints, I use mobilizations to facilitate movement and to change the input coming from a specific joint. I also use cupping to help with releasing fascia. Lastly, for homework, I recommend Functional Range Conditioning® protocols to help guide exercise selection and application.
I am incredibly happy for clients when a point is reached that they feel strong and confident. There is a great sense of accomplishment and pride that they are free of pain and can enjoy a healthy lifestyle.
