About Us

Live a life more balanced. The body was designed with self-regulatory mechanism ensuring repair, regulation and protection. My knowledge and skills as a licensed massage therapist and therapeutic exercise specialist allow me to help guide your body through the healing process. My passion lies in helping you to find more comfortable, pain-free ways of navigating through life. My approach is multi-faceted and thorough. My goal is not to treat your symptom, but to investigate and address the reason WHY your body has developed a certain pattern of pain/strain. Every treatment is aimed towards bringing your body back into balance so it can better utilize those innate self-regulatory mechanisms that become disrupted with abuse, overuse and/or underuse.
