About Me and My Practice

My clinic aims to encompass and provide assistance for recovery from injury, surgery, sport events, chronic pain and maintaining postural integrity of the musculosketal system. The treatment plan process has emphasis on finding the cause of pain and working with the client to resolve it. Along with remedial massage, I incorporate Clinical Neuromuscular Therapy (CNMT), Sports massage, PNF stretching and Manual Lymphatic Drainage (MLD) into my treatment plans.
