As a competitive runner for the past 37 years,
a competitive swimmer for the past 12 years, a USATF Certified Track Coach for the last 17 years and now, as a massage therapist, I emphasize the importance that effective touch, through informed manual therapy, has on the body.
This process starts with showing holistic care for my client’s well-being, then feeling for the condition of the muscles and connective tissue and using the appropriate technique and pressure to restore and improve muscle function.
Beginning with my degree from USC in Physical Education with an emphasis in Exercise Science,
I understand the importance that this specific knowledge has on a person’s health and performance. Whether you are just trying to get through
a tough day or a demanding race, these factors have
a vital impact on overall physical, emotional and mental well-being.
I specialize in sport, lymphatic, (those dealing with joint inflammation and edema) and prenatal massage work. I incorporate joint mobilization, myofascial release work, trigger point work, general circulatory, deep tissue modalities. Most people benefit from a combination of techniques.
By incorporating body assessments and special educational tools rarely used
by other therapists, I am able to provide my clients with a more
complete picture of their condition.
This includes thorough research and the use of medical apps,
providing anatomy visuals of the bones, muscles and the
nervous system and how they work in tandem.
My mission with each person is providing caring and effective comfort
through touch and education.
