How long have you been a licensed massage therapist?
I have been licensed since 2003.
How many hours of training do you have?
I have over 1000 hours of training and Continuing Education.
Why did you choose massage therapy as your career?
I have always been fascinated with the human body- its bio-mechanics and its geometry. Most clients, including myself, have some experience or direct relationship with pain in their own body and Massage Therapy is a way to treat clients experiencing pain or discomfort from structural issues/ injuries/ misalignment.
Where did you go to school for massage?
Lauterstein-Conway Massage School
How do you describe your massage/work to others?
I do Structural Integration with clients. By identifying the source or series of issues surrounding why the client could be experiencing discomfort in their bodies, I use bodywork techniques like Myofascial Release/ Active Release/ Neuromuscular Therapy/ Scar tissue mobilization to restore function, flexibility and mobility in the body from the muscular system, skeletal system, fascial planes to viscera.
What are some examples of Continuing Education you are interested in and why?
I am currently studying Tom Myers KMI training/Anatomy Trains. I am also interested in learning Feldenkrais Technique in order to use body placement and movement exercises to deepen the clients awareness and release structural tension.
How has receiving massage affected you personally?
Massage/Bodywork has helped me grow/change/learn about myself.
What do you do to stay healthy?
I like to workout and play basketball. Diet is also an important part of my health along with portion control and eating meditation.
What do you like about working at Myo Massage?
I like the community of therapists. The therapists at Myo are constantly sharing and educating each other about current practices and techniques. It is great to be a part of a group which is more forward thinking about the industry.
How do you approach pain management massage?Every client has a particular issue/ pain pattern. Every client has a history- injuries, postures, bad habits, good habits. All of this information helps to create a session plan to treat him/her. Most Structural Bodyworkers are also good detectives.
What techniques do you frequently use in pain management massage?
My training allows me to use many different styles and techniques depending upon the situation. I use myofascial release, trigger point therapy, active release techniques, pnf stretching, neuromuscular release, and body testing to assess and treat.
