Let it go.

As a lifelong cellist and pianist, I encountered some physical issues which kept me from using my left hand for an entire semester while attending Berklee College of Music.

As a lifelong cellist and pianist, I encountered some physical issues which kept me from using my left hand for an entire semester while attending Berklee College of Music. I was diagnosed with Thoracic Outlet Syndrome, and recovered through physical therapy and expert care from leading performing artist doctors. This made me interested in self care. Chronic neck and shoulder pain had me constantly begging for massages from family and friends. I discovered Claire and Amber Davies' "The Trigger Point Therapy Workbook", and learned about trigger point massage and how it affects different parts of the body -- and how certain muscles in the (chronically sore) neck and chest are the leading cause of Thoracic Outlet Syndrome! I was fascinated and decided to attend Utah College of Massage Therapy so that I could help others with issues such as these.  In my general massage, I use a variety of techniques including Swedish Massage, Trigger Point Therapy, fascial unwinding, Accupressure,  Reflexology and Shiatsu. I also give full Shiatsu massages, as well as full Zero Balancing sessions, and am working on my certification in Zero Balancing. I am available for all employees at Yellowstone National Park, as well as their family and friends.  I am planning on getting licensed in CT as well, so that I may practice there while Yellowstone is closed between seasons.  I earned my National Certification in May of 2011.
