Living in our world, routine daily activities alone can lead to repetitive use injuries. We all experience pain and discomfort from time to time- they are a part of the human experience.
I aim to ease this pain and discomfort, whether it arises from injury or from simply being active. As an active person myself, I understand the physical aches that we all experience as a result of over-activity.
I am a graduate of the Boulder College of Massage Therapy (BCMT), and have continued my education with training in Myofascial Release (MFR) as well as becoming a Certified Neuromuscular Therapist (NMT). The certification program at BCMT is the first program of its kind and many massage schools have followed their example. I am trained in Swedish, Neuromuscular, MFR, Sports, and Orthopedic Massage. I have also been an instructor at BCMT where I taught Anatomy, Kinesiology, and Sports Massage.
My massage experience ranges from working with the couch potato to professional triathletes, ballet dancers, climbers, and all in between. The style of my work tends to lean towards Neuromuscular Therapy, Myofascial Release, sports, orthopedic, and 'treatment' massage. I have worked alongside physical therapists and personal trainers since 2007, helping people achieve relief from pain, postural awareness, and optimal performance in their sports.
Personally, I am an avid recreational athlete; I raced mountain bikes for 11 years, I love my road bike, I have done triathlon, and continue to run many races as I have for the past 30 years.
I provide a safe environment in the healing process. I help my clients learn more about their own bodies, as well as help reconnect the mind with the body, which ultimately improves health, focus, performance, and quality of life.
