"I've learned that people will forget what you said, and what you did, but people will never forget how you made them feel. "
Having a background in Physical therapy (Physical Therapist Assistant, associates degree), I feel confident in my understanding of the human body, especially when it comes to recovery from injury, surgery, trauma, etc. I have a passion for making my clients feel better in general, especially when it comes to dealing with pain, tight muscles and scar tissue. I love to research techniques and stay up on current advancements.
I specialize in:
Cupping/myofascial release, gua-sha, or use of specific tools (IASTM), used for scar tissue mobilization and tendonitis. Trigger point therapy for TMJ symptoms, neck, back, shoulder pain and limited range of motion (including rotator cuff repair and frozen shoulder). Relief for migraines and tension headaches. Techniques for symptoms of sciatica, carpal tunnel & thoracic outlet syndromes (symptoms in extremities such as numbness, tingling, shooting pain in hands, legs and feet). Treatment of degenerative or herniated disc.
I can also incorporate himalayan salt ball, reflexology, craniosacral therapy, manual traction of vertebrae, and joint mobilization.
I prefer to customize sessions to each individual's needs, therefore I can focus on one or more areas of concern, varying session times as needed (30-90 minutes). A wide variety of the above mentioned techniques can be combined in one session.
Anyone can benefit from massage, ranging from light touch for relaxation and stress relief to deep pressure and trigger point therapy.
Cupping (or myofascial decompression) is a very effective modality, especially great for tight, overworked and tense areas, where trigger points and adhesions tend to occur. If you like deep pressure, you will love cupping.
Reflexology is an ancient technique, in which specific superficial pressure points are associated with internal points, organs etc. Many ailments can be addressed with reflexology, such as migraines, allergies, and irritable bowel syndrome, to name a few.
Gua-sha (or instrument assisted mobilization)is great for scar tissue and tendonitis. I utilize a variety of tools such as jade stone, stainless steel and bamboo.
