Why should patients choose you as their provider instead of others in the area?
I love working with people, working with an energy, healing, working with my hands and Massage
Therapy has combined all these passions together. Most of the time my massage style is gentle but with firm muscles manipulations, I do blend therapeutic massage and relaxation in the same treatment. I have a calm and empathetic nature, which helps my clients feel safe and at ease. I do listen attentively in
order to provide safe and effective treatment.
What are the top 3 treatments that you focus on?
My favorite techniques are:
– myofascial release by using sustained stretching to gently soften that fascia
– kneading as a circulatory technique to treat tight muscles, increase blood flow and decrease pain.
– trigger point techniques to provide gradual relaxation of the tension within the trigger point zone of the muscles.
Also, I do use modalities such as: Aromatherapy, Reflexology, Acupressure.
You can also ask me to add some scalp, face, hands, and feet massage.
What are you proud of in your practice?
I am most proud of being a passionate and experienced practitioner, being a part of my clients’ journey,
and to be actively involved in their path to wellness.
Which cases do you enjoy treating? Why?
I enjoy treating all different types of cases but my favorite one is treating cases related to office syndrome, postural deformity, and back/neck/shoulder pain with tension headache.
