Massage Therapy Philosophy

“I specialize in Therapeutic Sports Massages delivered with a compassionate and energetic touch. I address the body with regard to structural alignment and posture, fascial restrictions, range of motion and lifestyle habits. Through client education, I have found the healing process to be faster and the client more empowered, when taking an active role in their own healing. I firmly believe that massage therapy, whether used as preventative method, or in conjunction with more alternative forms of healing, can allow the client to reach higher levels of physical and emotional well being. Sports Massage Therapy helps care for the wear and tear and minor injuries sustained in the performance of any strenuous physical activity. It also allows the client a chance to bring body awareness, release stress, pain, and emotional fatigue.”
