Body Healing Through Myofascial Release
As someone who had been living with chronic pain for 17 years and as a Massage Therapist, I have been on a long road of discovering how the human body compensates for trauma, postural imbalances, surgeries, inflammation and repetitive stress injuries.
I think it’s crucial to share my story with clients as it provides insight as to what can happen with the body. How seemingly unrelated events can become intertwined and how the body then compensates three-dimensionally. This, in turn, binds the connective tissue within the body and restricts movement and causes pain.
I like to think of myself as the CFO or Chief Fascia Organizer or Co-Fascia Organizer as it is a collaboration between myself and the client. I have a passion for helping others to live their best lives! My belief is that it can start with a body that is free from pain, but also moves and functions in a way that is efficient and mobile.
My amazing journey as a massage therapist started with me sitting on my bed one afternoon contemplating life and what I wanted to do. As I thought about different jobs and positions I’d had—particularly one which required me to demonstrate a massage product—I quickly realized I had a sense for where people’s tensions were and just like that a light bulb went off over my head. I am going to be a Massage Therapist! Months later I was enrolled at the prestigious Swedish Institute in New York City. I graduated in 1998 and 15 years later I still love what I do and how I’m able to impact my clients to feel freedom in their bodies.
Throughout the years I have dedicated myself to bringing as much insight and technical skills as I can to the massage table. As I continued to work with my clients and provided rehabilitative bodywork, I developed a deeper sense of how different parts of the body connected with other areas. I felt I had to explore this insight further leading me to take a Myofascial Release (MFR) course, forever changing my life! This bodywork spoke to me on a personal level (see my story) and a professional level. I have had profound results that I have felt in my own body. This work goes beyond just the body. This work creates 'space' where it has been tight and pulled, to free a person to experience more in their lives. This is why I want everyone to know, feel and understand this amazing work.
Living with long-term, chronic pain for 17 years, I understand when a client walks through the door and says, “I hurt and I need help.” I have dedicated myself to receiving bodywork so I am always reminded of what it is that you, the client, feels while you are being treated. As humans we tend to give so much of ourselves. Many times we give so much that we don’t have anything left to give to ourselves. I am here to be YOUR support, to provide you balance, freedom and function through this authentic bodywork, which aligns your mind, body and soul. I provide client-focused bodywork for each person.
