"Before I became a massage therapist, I worked in the high-stress world of technology and education. I know firsthand the effects of prolonged stress on the body and mind, and the power of massage to help overcome it. To me, massage is an integral part of healthcare, both as a tool for prevention and a tool for specific, clinical treatment of injuries and chronic conditions. In our fast-paced culture of business, I aim to help my clients take a deep breath and fully inhabit their bodies.”

“One of my clients had torn a rotator cuff twice due to falls. After surgery to repair the tendons, I worked with her to reduce pain and to increase her range of motion in the injured shoulder. I took input from her physical therapist to ensure that our sessions would be safe and productive. I used deep relaxation techniques to put her nervous system at ease and help her body integrate the deep work on the rotator cuff muscles. Thanks to the combination of physical therapy and massage, she stopped wearing a sling within two weeks post-op and was able to get back to some of her favorite activities, like cooking and drawing, within a month."

What keeps you passionate about massage therapy?
"I'm an innately curious person, so I wil be poring over anatomy books and taking continuing education courses far into the future. I'm fascinated by the mind-body connection and follow the latest developments in neuroscience to understand how the nervous system relates to massage therapy. Massage therapy also allows me the heartfelt satisfaction of seeing clients become healthier and more in touch with their bodies.”
