Which cases do you enjoy treating? Why?
I enjoy the cases where I can improve the quality of each individuals’ life after my massage therapy treatments, such as acute low back radiculopathy and sciatica, chronic whiplash disorder, Achilles’ tendinitis, frozen shoulder, neck pain, back pain, work-related stress, tension headaches, carpal tunnel syndrome. I enjoy taking away the pain and injuries of my clients, helping them return back to normal life and their optimal lifestyle. When I see their symptoms getting better or a smile of relief from their face, it feels so rewarding and that is why I love my career as a registered massage therapist.
What are you proud of in your practice?
I pride myself in taking the time to listen to my patients and assess them in order to understand their individual needs. I am proud of being able to create a positive rapport with my clients so that they feel comfortable to allow me to help them in their recovery and thrive in life. I believe that having this relationship leads to the greatest chances of success for the client. There is nothing more rewarding than seeing my client making positive changes and feeling better after each visit.
What are the top 3 treatments that you specialize in?
I specialize in a variety of treatments and also adapt the treatment plan to each individual’s special needs. However, my top three massage therapy treatments are relaxation massage, deep tissue massages and trigger point release therapy.
Why should patients choose you as their provider instead of others in the area?
My professional knowledge and 15+ years of experiences made me better able to serve and care for my clients. I fully live with the belief that each client’s journey is different and unique, and with a wide range of massage therapy skills, I can tailor my treatment sessions to the needs of each patient so that they can reach their optimal therapeutic goals.
I truly enjoy the interactions with my clients, explaining and demonstrating to them how the human body, nerves, muscles and joints work, not only to solve short-term symptoms, but also aiming at helping my clients attain and exceed their long-term health and wellness expectations.
