Chair Massage

With sports massage and Thai massage experience, Lyn has figured out a way to incoporate those two modalities to create a slightly different approach to chair massage. Lyn has also been invited several times to share her knowledge and skills in chair massage to massage students at Renton Technical College.

Neuromuscular

Even before graduating from RTC massage school in 1998-99, Lyn's class were learning the Paul St. John’s technique of Neuromuscular Therapy. She continued to further her NMT skills by attending levels 1-5 within 4 years after graduating.

Sports Massage

Sports Masage was the very first thing Lyn started doing as soon as she received her massage license at the Courage Classic event from 1999 to 2013. Lyn also receives invitations to teach her version of sports massage at a local massage school almost every year. She now holds Table Thai/Sports Massage CEU workshops a few times a year since 2017.

Thai Massage

Lyn attended Spirit Winds School of Thai Massage between 2003 and 2005 to learn Traditional Thai Massage levels 1-2 as well as traveling to Bali for a Thai Massage retreat under the guidance of her teacher, Janice Gagnon. Lyn returned to Nevada City in 2013 to further her knowledge with level 3 & 4 of Tradition Thai Massage to learn a more diagnostic approach using Sen Lines.

Cupping Methods

Lyn's has been incorporating Massage Cupping methods since 2012 after attending a workshop by Jason Abbey, LMP. Since using massage cupping, Lyn has seen great improvements in increased joint movements and range of motion as well as decreasing pain in most of her clients.

Cycling Event Sports Massage Therapist - Lead LMP

Courage Classic in Washington state was the beginning of several cycling events providing sports massage in 1999. From the Courage Classic, it lead to working with Tim Kneeland & Associates' cycling events such as WA Alps, Coast to Coast, and California Coast Classic. Currently lead LMP with Obliteride and The People's Coast Classic which is now known as Arthritis Bike Classic Oregon.

Myofascial Release

Lyn uses myofascial release techniques in almost all her sessions to help decrease restrictions and pain, increasing joint mobility and range of motion.

Lyn has everything I've always wanted from a massage therapist: an excellent knowledge of anatomy, the ability and presence to feel my body's response to her massage plus a variety of techniques to keep every massage unique and specific.

Lyn listened carefully and worked with me through the movements always checking in with me about my comfort. Her skill and knowledge was amazing and she had many ideas for how I can do some of the work at home. Very professional and comforting in understanding the pain I was in and giving ideas on relieving it along with the techniques she used in office.
