Joined Elements Team: July 2019
Shandu is the newest member of our team, joining in July 2019. She has extensive background and experience doing massage therapy, and recently joined our Studio after working for Elements Massage in the North Shore area.
She describes her massage as vigorous (And it truly is!) She is very powerful and can go deep. Her knowledge of anatomy is very good. And she is quick to identify problematic patterns in her clients. This enables her to intervene and apply excellent therapy, make solid recommendations, and set a treatment plan with her clients.
She is a very experienced, well-rounded, and gifted therapist who can respond to nearly any client's needs. She lists closely and can vasilate her pressure up or down, whether they need deep work, trigger point, or relaxation.
When Shandu does Swedish or Relaxation massage, it is firm. But, when she discovers knots or trigger points, her hands will want to go into therapy mode and address what they found.
