Prior to becoming an RMT I practiced for 12 years as a shiatsu therapist, which is a Japanese style of massage utilizing acupressure. Integrating Swedish and shiatsu techniques can be a very helpful approach to alleviate pain and discomfort.
Why should patients choose you as their provider instead of others in the area?
I have over a decade of experience which has taught me that some days the right way to work with a patient is to work deep into the tissue, while other days a light touch is required. I believe that above all else the right approach is to treats the patient's immediate needs while keeping long term goals in mind.
What are the top 3 treatments that you focus on?
I specialize in acupressure, deep tissue, and deep relaxation treatments.
What are you proud of in your practice?
I am proud of my communication skills and how they impact my clients' wellbeing. This helps to pinpoint problems as well as improving treatments and home care results.
Which cases do you enjoy treating? Why?
I enjoy treating the neck as it can hold a lot of tension. The average weight of the human head is around 11 pounds which is a lot of work for the neck muscles. Neck tension increases as we bend the neck forward to read off the computer or phone screen. Releasing this area can improve posture, treat headaches, and reduce overall tension and stress.
