Why should patients choose you as their provider instead of others in the area?
I have extensive experience working as a manual therapist and use a wide range of modalities and techniques in my practice to help in achieving my client's wellness & rehab goals. I bring a unique, compassionate approach to each case and always advocate for my client's best interests. Furthermore, I am extremely passionate about the rehabilitation sciences and utilize a foundational knowledge of functional anatomy, physiology, clinical assessment and therapeutic exercise in each of my treatments.
What are the top 3 treatments that you focus on?
Trigger Point Release Therapy, Deep Tissue/ Sports Massage and Relaxation Massage. These treatments can be used in combination or individually within a session in order to improve body function by reducing muscle tension and stiffness, but most importantly can relieve pain and discomfort.
What are you proud of in your practice?
I get a sense of professional pride when I am able to aid in achieving a client's rehabilitation or wellness goals, and thereby improve their quality of life.
Which cases do you enjoy treating? Why?
I enjoy treating all cases, as each case and patient presentation is unique. However, the most rewarding cases are those where the client is actively engaged in their rehab or wellness journey and we, collaboratively, are able to establish a treatment plan and modify it as needed.
