I believe, A healthy mind and healthy body amount to a healthy lifestyle.
Massage Therapy helped me recover my range of motion and relieve pain I sustained from an injury. I was referred to a massage therapist by my chiropractor to help with the swelling and decreased range of motion in my upper back and neck, which was blocking my spinal fluid from moving as freely as it should have been. After my first therapeutic session I was able to turn my head and move my neck with ease, in fact it was so great I didn't realize how restricted I was until after the muscles were released. I then had several follow up and maintenance sessions over the course of 6 months. I was been able to avoid taking pain medications and avoid surgery altogether. I was so fascinated by the power of therapeutic touch I wanted to learn how to help others in the same holistic way, it is rewarding to be able to share the power of massage with others.
No two hands are the same, therefore no two massages practitioner's are the same. I prefer to tailor and customize each session to the client's needs.
There are many things I am passionate about, my kids, my pets (all animals really) yes I am the lady you see on the side of the road helping a hurt animal or picking up a stray to help find it a home, food (especially pizza and avocados), traveling when I can and massage. Seeing a client after a session and watching the put on a coat or bend to tie a shoe with less pain and greater ease is very rewarding.
