Notable Experiences

Certified Medical Massage Therapist
6/2015, Certified by LMT Success Group. Week long intense medical massage training on the neck, back, upper and lower extremities.
The Whalen Method of Neuromuscular Reeducation
5/2015, Certified in The Whalen Method of Neuromuscular Reeducation by Freda Whalen. This modality utilizes the wooden massage tool, the Knobble, to deliver precise trigger point therapy to soft tissue. Freda developed this modality as a result of damage to her hands early in her massage career. The Knobble delivers depth & precision to soft tissue that just can't be obtained by using fingers, hands or elbows. Over time these "tools" can wear out. The Knobble drastically lengthens the career of a massage therapist in addition to allowing the therapist to work muscles in an extremely effective manner. I also assist Freda in teaching continuing education classes to massage therapists, physical & occupational therapists & physical therapy assistants. Freda Whalen has been a massage therapist for over 30 years.
Levy Method
2014 July & October, the Levy Mthod of Neuromuscular Re-Education. Dr. Levy is a chiropractor that teaches a soft tissue technique. This technique utilizes very specific moves on the part of the therapist and patient to effect the desired muscles.
