I has been a bodyworker since 2009 and have dedicated my practice to bringing you innovative methods and techniques for pain relief. Originally I started out with my 1st practice like most massage therapists; where you would come in and I would treat the area of complaint, whether it was for pain, soreness, lack of range of motions or stress and I found that this was not effective for most because every week the client would come back in with the same complaint. Even though I had won awards year after year, had excellent training, tons of continuing education, numerous certifications, I was still treating the symptom which does allow many to feel better short term but only temporarily. In 2014 I decided to hop down the rabbit hole; started studying neurological bodywork, took all levels of NKT over a two year period which goes after the root cause for correcting the dysfunction in the body instead of masking it. I quickly integrated NKT with my existing methods of Neuro Bodywork for maximum effective corrections. Fast forward to 2018 were I use state of the art technology and methods along with certified personal training, corrective exercise, yoga therapy, weight loss, Posturology and ANF Therapy disc’s to integrate together with Neuro based Bodywork for effective results that last. While I am still a licensed massage therapist through my education and training; what I do now is far from a traditional cookie cutting massage, in fact it is not even close for good reason. Even though I offered advanced bodywork before, I know offer you advanced bodywork that is unparalleled to anything you have probably experienced before. I invite you to read more on my website to see if this is right for you. Please feel free to call, test or e-mail me, I would be happy to discuss with you how I can help you.
