Relieve muscle pain, joint stiffness, stress
I am happy now to announce the re-opening of my massage practice and I will be taking every reasonable precaution to protect my clients and myself.
If you feel that it is appropriate for you – based on your personal risk profile – to continue with regular massage therapy sessions, you can review an outline of safety measures that will be implemented for in-office appointments on this page. I look forward to seeing you soon!
The accumulation of physical stress in the 21st century workplace is the result of, at least in part, how much time we spend sitting and processing information on computers, tablets, and smart phones.
Additionally, there is a heavy load of mental and emotional stress from attempting to balance work and family life, 24-hour connectivity to our digital devices, social media distractions, meetings, deadlines, navigating conflicts within corporate culture, and let us not forget the unproductive block of time spent by many in slow moving rush hour traffic on the way to or from the office.
Massage can be an effective wellness care tool (among others) for relieving the feelings of stress, anxiety and burnout. It can also help to alleviate the build up of physical stresses over time that can potentially lead to conditions involving:
– Neck pain caused from postural strain – e.g. “text neck”
– Headache caused from accumulated tension in the shoulders, neck, jaw, and cranial muscles
– Repetitive strain/overuse disorders or injuries of the forearms, wrist, and fingers from typing and texting
– Back pain and general stiffness produced from sitting all day and stagnant posture

The question I’m asked of course is – “What type of massage techniques do you practice?” I have received training in and continue to learn about massage and bodywork modalities such as: Swedish Massage, Trigger Point Therapy, Sports Massage, deep tissue massage techniques, myofascial release techniques, muscle stretching techniques. I am also looking at how these and other strategies can best be used, within my scope as a massage therapist, to help reduce pain and stress.
Over 16 years of practice I’ve discovered that the best way to communicate the value of a massage treatment to each client was not in the modality itself (at least not at first), but rather in focusing on each client’s expected outcome for the massage treatment (i.e. generally speaking pain relief or stress reduction).
This has led me to the idea of setting up my service so that you can make an appointment selection based on a generalized outcome for the massage treatment. When you arrive at my office, we’ll talk a little more about what you want the massage session to achieve and then I will match the tools and techniques for your session to a more specific outcome. So, my services described in a “nutshell” are…
My goal is to provide value to my clients through the use of massage and bodywork therapy as a conservative treatment option and prevention strategy for muscle and joint pain. Specifically, this takes the form of using the most effective massage treatment protocols, stretching techniques, education, and practical take-home prevention strategies to help them get the relief they seek and maintain their wellness.
