The first thing I find out from a new patient is what their physical challenges are. I take them through a physical assessment where I check for any muscular as well as skeletal imbalances comparing what was told to me to what their body is telling me. Based on these findings, I customize the massage.
One thing I let my patients know is the importance of establishing good communication during their massage, as it will only enhance their massage experience. It's important to me that the communication is there, whether it's about the pressure I'm using or about the area I'm working on. I always want to make sure my patient is perfectly comfortable with the work I'm doing.

I attended Brenneke School of Massage in 2003, following the completion of my high school education.
I found the experience challenging and gratifying, as it was my first experience really acknowledging boundaries within myself, and while working with others.
My more recent studies have led me to Ayurvedic medicine. I practice this through my bodywork with particular techniques and mantras to set intention, as well as offering my knowledge of health and wellness to my clients.
What I have found is that with a healthy body and mind, everything is possible. The purpose I have is to gain knowledge so I can continue to share and teach others how to care for themselves, having the hope they will continue the cycle that allows nourishment of the mind, body and soul.
My massage technique is combination of modalities that have formed into my own, using anywhere from light to deep touch, light rocking with compression, trigger point release, myofascial release, gentle stretching, and breath work. Come on in and I'll be happy to talk more with you about how I can assist you in your healing process.
