    Do you work long hours looking at a computer screen, hunched over, using a mouse? Do you suffer from upper back & neck discomfort, headaches, stress, numbness and tingling in your hands? You may suffer from what I call: iSlump. 

‚ÄčNow a days there are many pains that seem unexplainable due to lack of cause of injury. This is because our modern conditions are caused from stationary work environments and repetitive motions, causing strain and postural maladjustment. Over time our body's adapt, mutate, then go over a threshold and become painful. I can help you with this!

I use the new scientific approach to physiology that is focused on the myo-fascial system. This system is based on structural biomechanics and tensegritythe two terms that equate how we develop our painful conditions. 

    Do you suffer from mental health concerns, anxiety, depression, stress? These are leading health issues of our time. We have become so disembodied and our mental health has the tell tale signs. Massage therapy can help with this by creating a time and space to tune back into the body allowing the nervous system calm down and retrain the mind and body to relax. 

   Our brains and bodies are designed to naturally heal, if we give them the right internal environment. I am trained in Eastern and Western health care that has techniques to support retraining the body and mind so that we can get back to enjoying our life from a place of joy and peace of mind. I am happy to share this knowledge and techniques with you if you are interested.

                               

   Do you find it disheartening to go to your doctor because of pain only to be given prescription drugs that only mask the symptoms but never address the cause or condition? Our doctors are not trained to deal with musculoskeletal pains and conditions. Therapist are!  I can help you discover what the cause and condition of your pain is and how to most quickly recover from it! There are 100 differing possible injuries and conditions that a Registered Massage Therapist is trained to help you recover from.   

                                                     

                               

Massage therapy is rehabilitative and preventative health care, working on decreasing stress and tension and promoting relaxation and peace of mind. You do not need to have pain or an injury to receive massage.

Massage is recommended as part of a regular health care routine. 

 

OFFERING THE HIGHEST QUALITY OF CARE:

I am a highly trained and experienced RMT with 17 years experience providing massage therapy, and 21 years of natural health education. I use a mixture of massage therapy, acupressure, myofascial release, structural integration, and zero balancing to return the body back to proper alignment and positioning for ultimate relaxation and tissue health. 

I take time to get to know you, do thorough assessment, postural analysis, orthopaedic testing, and in depth health and injury history, looking at all levels of function: bones, muscles, fascia, nervous, circulatory, lymphatic, mental and emotional, and habitual and functional qualities, all of which allows me to assess the causes and conditions and devise a custom treatment plan to meet your specific needs.

My expertise is in seeing you as a functioning whole, every part affecting every part, and my holistic and integrative approach allows for change on all levels. I explain clearly the assessment, the findings, and the treatment plan, along with giving comprehensive instruction for the appropriate stretch, strengthening, or relaxation techniques required to get you back to your vitality!

In my practice I focus on posture and structural alignment, deep tissue release and re-balancing, joint mobilization, pain relief, relaxation, stress management, and therapeutic and yogic exercise. I enjoy explaining the anatomy, physiology and biomechanics to you so you have clear understanding of treatment and recovery. Comprehensive assessment, keeping up to date with evidence based research, and taking the time to understand your goals are the values to my massage therapy practice.

 

                                                               

 

I can help you recover from your pain quickly and teach you how to prevent the causes.
