Are you wondering about massage? Give it a try! It can be so helpful!
After a serious car accident many years ago, I saw a massage therapist who was able to restore function and sustainably reduce the severe chronic pain I experienced from my injuries. Those transformative results, combined with my natural inclination to help others, made moving from my first career to this one an easy transition. Upon graduating an 1,100 hour program with honors in 2009, I began practicing massage in Seattle and maintained both a solo practice, and several positions in multi-disciplinary clinics throughout the area. I also studied under and maintain friendships with several of my massage mentors to this day.
At the beginning of 2015, I relocated to New Orleans. Since the beginning, most of my practice has been specializing in injury treatment, orthopedic and clinical massage. I have worked with all kinds of practitioners in the healthcare field, from physicians, nurses and orthopedic specialists, to physical and occupational therapists and chiropractors, and strive to be the comforting bridge between my clients and their occasionally overwhelming healthcare.
Along with ordinary tension, headaches and strain, other conditions I have experience treating include: fibromyalgia; Sjogren’s syndrome; Parkinson’s; lupus; MS; arthritis; joint repair/replacement; spondylosis and other degenerative conditions; stroke-induced hemiplegia; spinal fusions; fractures and post-operative scarring and mobilization; cancer and peri/post chemotherapy; thoracic outlet syndrome; and TMJ. I also welcome and aim to support clients who may be managing the various physical side effects that come with transitioning and/or hormone modifications.
My primary approach to massage is from a treatment standpoint, but each session is typically a mixture of modalities. I’ve had post-certification training for various orthopedic applications, injury treatment, craniosacral, structural relief therapy, visceral manipulation, and massage cupping. Since 2009, I have been a member of and insured through Associated Bodywork & Massage Professionals (ABMP).
Please reach out if you have any curiosity regarding me or my practice. I’d love to talk with you about any thoughts you have regarding bodywork that may benefit your current situation.
