"I am a massage therapist because I want to help people feel the best they can in their bodies.

I work with my client's feedback so that I can work within their comfort zone for that session and get them to a place where they can feel a little better."
"Each person's health story is unique and deserves special, individualized attention. I believe building a relationship based on trust is a key first step. Habits and beliefs formed in childhood and adolescence are deep-rooted and difficult to change. It is in discovering and forming new roots that we become the person we're meant to be, with a body that naturally comes more into balance."
"If you are struggling because you have pain issues, difficulty sleeping, or are undergoing mental and emotional stress, massage therapy may bring you the relief you seek. I have helped many people with a wide array of issues--people with very physical jobs, people who sit all day, athletes, people who have undergone great physical traumas and surgeries--the benefits of massage therapy are far reaching. In addition to resolving pain issues, massage therapy promotes deep relaxation and a sense of well being. As your body releases tension, your mind becomes more peaceful."

I also come to parties, showers and other gatherings. I have seen how massage can change a person's energy and outlook and I am grateful for the opportunity to bring it to you so you can savor your time without the hassle of driving."
"truggling to manage IBS, migraines, arthritis/joint pain, eczema, or fibromyalgia? There is a common thread linking these types of pain and discomfort - inflammation. The work I do pinpoints specific foods your body is negatively reacting to. When these foods react, they cause inflammation. When we remove the causes of inflammation, my clients feel their symptoms significantly decrease - sometimes even disappear. I do this work using the MRT test and LEAP protocol; clients' reactive foods are removed and systematically reintroduced when appropriate. This method allows us to know exactly what to eliminate rather than play a never-ending guessing game."
"My philosophy in treating patients is not only evaluating the signs and symptoms of a disease, but also looking at the person as a whole entity with imbalances causing "dis-ease". I also believe in the powerful connection that happens between the patient and the practitioner, in that connecting to the patient is an integral part of the healing process. My special interests include chronic pain, arthritis, woman's health (including pre-natal, pregnancy & delivery), addictions, gastro-intestinal disorders, and mental/emotional disorders."
"In addition to acupuncture, my practice includes tui na and other Oriental Physical Therapy, herbal medicine, and tai chi. My experience as a healer predates my acupuncture degree and includes many forms of massage, intensive study and practice of tai chi (and now teaching), meditation and work in hospital physical therapy rehabilitation (working predominantly with stroke patients)."
"As a Naturopathic Doctor it is my job to view my patients with a holistic perspective. Rather than chasing symptoms and individual body systems, it is important to seek out the root causes of illness and work at this fundamental level. I focus very heavily on educating my patients to understand their systems and construct long-term strategies for maintaining health. It is my goal to reduce my patients' dependence on any Doctor. My ideal patients are open to learning and examining health issues "out of the box"."
