A graduate of Cortiva Institute Florida, I specialize in pain management for chronic conditions, trigger points, soft tissue injuries, and post-operative recovery.
Right / Ethical Livelihood is extremely important to me. –I practice massage because it is in line with my values, and I believe in its ability to aid in and accelerate the body’s natural healing process.
Therapeutic massage sessions typically include a combination of Neuromuscular Therapy, Swedish Massage , Myofascial Release and Cupping to increase the flow of blood, oxygen and nutrients to the soft tissues; these techniques promote relaxation and pain relief, and also reduce the build up of scar tissue.
In addition to being an LMT, I hold a Bachelor’s Degree in Sustainable Living from Maharishi University of Management, and am a certified Permaculture Designer.
–Striving to bring intention and awareness to all that I do (through the practice of Mindfulness, Meditation, and Continued Education), I am able to achieve a style of massage best described as “Scientifically informed, intuitively guided.”
