Do you want to experience true pain relief  & healing?

Over the many years that I have been practicing massage, I learned more about the body though experience than I ever learned in school. I also developed a highly skilled ability to palpate tissue and target the areas in the tissue that are causing your pain. 

Several years ago, I starting learning how to effectively manipulate the muscles and connective tissue in a very specific and targeted manner. This technique evolved over the years, and I now call it Targeted Tissue Release. It has proven to be one of the most effective techniques I've ever experienced. 

Knowing how and where the muscles connect at the origin and insertion points, understanding how the tendons and fascia are affected, and knowing the several different textures in which the tissue presents itself and what the different textures mean, I can provide a treatment specific to your individual needs. 

This technique is extremely effective for plantar fasciitis, sciatica, back pain, hip pain, shoulder pain, knee pain, neck pain, TMJ, and even abdominal pain. It is also very helpful in releasing tight or inflamed tissue after healing from surgery and injuries. I work with each individual regarding pain tolerance, listen to each person's wants and needs, and provide pain relief and relaxation as needed and requested. 

Sometimes energy healing can be added to a massage, which can release congested energy and help the tissues to release. Energy healing is also effective for both acute and chronic illness, and it can reduce side effects of chemotherapy, radiation, and other harsh medical treatments. It balances your energy and helps to relieve symptoms of depress and anxiety, provides clarity, and a sense of peace. 

Do you have joint and muscular pain that just won't go away?

As a massage therapist since 2004, I have found that the key to healing tight and inflamed tissue is to find the true source of the pain. Having well developed palpation skills is key. The source of one's pain is not always in the area in which you feel the pain. I am successful at finding the source of my clients' pain about 99% of the time.

 

In addition to using Targeted Tissue Release, I sometimes use the ancient art of cupping to help in releasing stubborn knots. I use suction cups to apply constant pressure on the tissue and to bring circulation to the area. This helps in breaking down the fibers of the affected tissue and allowing it to release.

Have you had little relief from medications and  other therapies?

Though pain medicine and muscle relaxers are helpful, they won't fix what's wrong. They just give you temporary relief. Chiropractic care can be very effective, but often requires the addition of massage. Physical therapy can also be very helpful, but depending on the issue, can have limited benefits, and sometimes has no impact at all. 

Many of my clients have come to me after trying one or more of the above mentioned treatments without success. I was their last resort, and thankfully, I was able to help them. Several area doctors and other health care professionals have found profound relief through my treatments, and are now not only continuing on as my clients, but also referring their own patients to me. 

Do you experience anxiety, depression, low energy? Are you looking for alternative or complementary ways of healing? Or, maybe you just want to feel a greater spiritual connection?

I've been a Reiki Master since 2003 and have had many profound and successful sessions, including improved symptoms of thyroidism, tendonitis, Barrett's Esophagus, torn retina, depression, anxiety and panic attacks. It has also helped with undiagnosed pain, muscle pain, and healing from surgery and injuries. 

I discovered and developed various energy healing techniques over the years, which culminated into an advanced energy healing modality that I call Ascension Healing. In addition to being a Certified Reiki Master Teacher, I am also a Certified Rising Star practitioner. I first started combining the two modalities several years ago. Intuitively, I eventually incorporated aspects of Pranic Healing, Quantum Touch, and Sound Healing. Once I realized that these additional techniques that I thought I had created on my own were actually other modalities that are being used by others, I researched each of them and added more knowledge to what I already knew intuitively.

The definition of ascension is "the act of rising to an important position or a higher level." When you experience Ascension Healing you ascend to a higher level frequency. When this happens, your body heals, your mind heals, and you attain a greater connection to your higher self and soul, creating greater intuitiveness and flow in your life.
