My massage therapy career started in 2006 at East West College of Healing Arts in Portland, OR and has continued for 11+ years.
Swedish massage was the foundation of my massage career but I honestly never felt like those sessions really helped my clients. Sure, they felt great on the table but after leaving my treatment space the issues would creep back in. Was I really even helping? While starting to question my practice I began to feel carpal tunnel symptoms in my wrists. I reached out to a teacher and that first session changed my whole path within this field.
The immediate positive structural shifts were felt throughout my whole body after only 90 minutes. Leaving the treatment room that day I was in awe and excited to learn how to truly help my clients.
Since that day, I have studied with and learned from some of the best mentors, gained knowledge necessary to unwind holding patterns, relieve trigger points, decrease pain, and increase range of motion for clients.
