As a certified orthopedic & athletic sports massage specialist I strictly provide advanced bodywork and massage to professional athletes as well as the passionate health & fitness enthusiast. While all massage techniques/modalities offer relaxation and stress relieving benefits, my practice is exclusively dedicated to clients who are experiencing pain, muscle tension due to postural imbalances, sports and fitness minded individuals who would like to increase flexibility and performance or individuals whose lifestyle is geared towards natural and holistic approaches of healing.
Most of my clients are referrals. Be aware that I work from home therefore appointments are necessary with at least 48 hrs before scheduled date.

Myofascial Release, Deep Tissue Massage, Neuromuscular Therapy, Therapeutic Stretching, Manual Lymphatic Drainage and Structural Integration.

Orthopedic/Medical massage therapy consists of three primary elements:
- Assessing client's condition and needs
- Adapting the treatment to heal the source of pain
- Educating the client about self care activities that will prolong the results of the therapy.
In addition, I feel strongly that all of the clients health care team should work together for the benefit of the client. I welcome guidance and interaction with your Physician, Physical Therapist, Chiropractor, Nutritionist, Yoga instructor or whomever you entrust your healing to.
