I have been a massage therapist for over a decade and my profession has served to re-enforce a life long belief in the importance of balance. Balance in life and balance in the body.
In my role as an RMT I bring that belief to my treatments. I seek to balance posture and muscles tension in the body to restore ease and function. I seek to balance your appointment between assessment and hands on, general and specific techniques, therapy and relaxation, seeking to provide you with care that best serves your priorities and goals within an evidence based foundation.
I have found the tools of myofascial release, deep tissue massage, muscle energy technique and trigger point therapy to be the ones that I most often turn to in my work. Fascial release on scars, particularly mastectomy scars, has been both a continuing education and clinical practice focus for several years while cervical release and TMJ balancing are long term interests.
