About Me

Specialties: Orthopedic, Swedish, Myofascial Release, Sports Massage, Reiki

 

I like feeling strong and want to continue moving well until I'm old and gray. It would be nice if I can help others along the way do the same. It takes self-care, and discipline, but it's worth it if it opens the doors to more possibilities. It's foolish to take on such an endeavor blindly, so I've made it a mission to never stop learning and cover every angle of approach to bodywork. So far, I have a very mechanical view of the body, lengthening the steel cables with too much tension, while ratcheting up the ones with too much slack so that the structure stands fully upright and balanced.

The energetic aspect to my work is much like a heartfelt hug given to someone in need. I try to bring that energy into how you deal with people and share positivity. Reiki harnesses this energy to help a person heal themselves. I, as a massage therapist, let this energy guide where I'll focus most of my deep work to restore the body back to a neutral position. Balance the muscles, the rest of the body will follow.
