Book with Hunter
“I have been practicing massage since 2015. I originally got into massage therapy as a way to pay my way through school but ended up falling in love with the line of work and have continued to practice on and off for the last 7 years. I am certified in Manual Lymphatic drainage, and cupping therapy, as well as yoga teacher certified. My massage career began at AustinDeep and later on to Mantis massage both well known for providing deep therapeutic work. I believe deep therapeutic work derives from knowledge about anatomy and physiology and implementing techniques proven to address pain patterns that emerge. I am moving my work more and more towards neuromuscular therapy and trigger point work as I have found this to be the most effective work not just for my clients but also in my own personal pain management. I try to keep my work centered around the evidence based techniques proven to relieve chronic pain but also keep an open mind to other alternative modalities. I am especially drawn to working with clients who experience head, neck and shoulder pain and would consider this my specialty area. I enjoy being deeply focused on my work and will tend to leave conversation for before and after the session, though I am very open to any feedback during the session about what is or isn’t working for you. I believe in a holistic approach to health and well being and try to live my life by these principles and encourage others to do so as well.”
How long have you been a licensed massage therapist?
How many hours of training do you have?
Why did you choose massage therapy as your career?
It chose me! It was offered to me as an option to pay for my higher education and became something I wanted to pursue for the rest of my life.
Where did you go to school for massage?
New beginning school of massage
How do you describe your massage/work to others?
Intuitive and focused, therapeutic yet relaxing.
What are some examples of Continuing Education you are interested in and why?
I am very interested in KinesioTape. I am a brain/neuroscience nerd, and taping seems to really change the brain’s messages to muscles/muscle groups. During that time, one has the opportunity to repattern those muscles.
What do you do to stay healthy?
Gardening, cooking, swimming, hiking, biking, taking care of my dogs
What do you like about working at Myo Massage?
That it is a place known for its therapeutic work and high quality, that it is well run and looked after by qualified therapists who are passionate about body work.
How has receiving massage affected you personally?
It has made me a more well rounded person. Less anxious, able to listen to my own body, able to slow down and connect with others. It helped me process trauma and find healing.
