“Where you think it is, it isn’t” – Ida Rolf
My work is highly specialized medical massage therapy and corrective fitness geared towards relieving pain and the body. I have the responsibility for creating professional, results-driven programs for musculoskeletal pain relief and optimal function.

MEDICAL MASSAGE THERAPY
“You don’t have 600-some-odd muscles, as we’ve always been taught: You have a single muscle with 600-odd stopping points, all linked by the fascial web.” – Thomas Meyers
The bodywork that I do is individual to each body that I come across. The best description is Integrative Myofacial Realease. This is not a typical relaxation massage from a spa nor is it impersonal and aggressive soft tissue work from a clinic.
The goal is pain relief and improved function where results are not always felt in one visit. My focus is to find the source of the pain; the imbalance creating the dysfunction. By only treating the symptoms it perpetuates a temporary pain relief cycle.
“If we spend months, years, even decades sitting at a desk and think that a few hours in the gym per week are going to undo that, we’re probably fooling ourselves”. – Anthony Carey
Corrective fitness is just that, fitness that corrects in order to relieve pain and improve function. With a combination of strength, flexibility, agility and balance training it is possible to balance the muscles in strength and length.
Fitness sessions often consist of full body, 3-dimensional exercises. Every day is different depending on how the body responds to the given program. Some days the body needs a more gentle approach so we will work more on balance and/or the specifics of a yoga pose. On other days, the body might be ready for a challenge with agility training and strength moves.
