I have been doing bodywork and massage since 1998. I have many years of training in various modalities such as St. John Neuromuscular Therapy (NeuroSomatic Therapy), P-DTR (Proprioceptive-Deep Tendon Reflex), NeuroKinetic Therapy (also called Neuromuscular Reprogamming), Myofascial Release, deep tissue massage, active and passive stretching techniques, postural evaluation, orthopedic massage, Swedish massage, joint mobilization, muscle energy techniques, cranial fascial balancing, visceral massage, Qi Gong acupressure, Jin Shin Do acupressure, Chi Nei Tsang, and medical Qi Gong.
I am also a Certified Personal Trainer and Certified Corrective Exercise Specialist.
I have a real love for what I do and I never get tired of working with people to help them understand what is causing their pain or dysfunction and how we can work to resolve it by means of corrective bodywork and exercise.
When I see a client for the first time, I do a full postural evaluation and take a full medical history. This is essential information to understand adaptive patterns that form from past injuries, surgeries, poor posture and biomechanics, and repetitive motion strain that are often at the root of chronic pain. I primarily use in combination NMT, P-DTR, and MFR.
I am presently studying "Z Health" - a neurologically based system of exercise.
