Hello & Welcome. I'm Angela a devoted 12yr bodywork professional who is here to help, listen and provide clinical and Asian body therapy .
I'm a two curricula graduate from the Baltimore School of Massage, where I received a certification with NCCAOM in Traditional Chinese Medicine (in Asian Bodywork Therapy) and a board certification with NCBTMB in Western Massage.
While matriculating through both programs I also served as the Student Supervisor of the BSOM Student Clinic where I instructed students on proper body mechanics, professional ethics and wellness promotion.
My specialty is addressing chronic postural habits which cause poor somatic outcomes, exacerbated by poor workplace, sport or everyday habitually applied ergonomics.. I provide an integrated therapeutic approach using a mix of Asian and western clinical and somatic modalities. My modalities of choice are: Neuromuscular Therapy, Myofascial Release, Sports Massage, Cupping & Shiatsu, Tuina, Scar Tissue, Pre &Postnatal and Oncology Massage. Lastly I help with Stress Reduction massage for chronic conditions such TMJ, migraines, "tech neck", lumbago, depression & anxiety.. .
“Optimal health is the key to everything......without your health.... nothing else matters.
Thank you to my teachers and all of their teachers.”
An innate curiosity and conviction for helping others inspires me.
1st visit is probably an informative experience.
There's thorough health screen where we discuss:
1.. your somatic issue
2. treatment goals and
3. realistic and prospective outcomes.
Forget all the stereotypes, massage magazine covers and conjecture about bodywork. Bodywork is as individualized as you are..Be open. Be ready to let your therapist guide you. Lastly be willing to change ill fitted somatic habits for more optimal ones.
