I completed massage training at The Oregon School of Massage in 2007. My continuing education has focused on therapeutic techniques, Shiatsu (Japanese Acupressure) and Reiki healing touch.
I have seen clients as young as 5 and as mature as 90, yet most people I see are active adults, who recognize the benefits of regular massage, and who want to improve function or reduce pain from old injuries and chronic/repetitive muscular patterns. We work together - using a variety of techniques to free up 'stuck' or misaligned muscle fibers, followed by suggested self-care practices; cold/heat, stretch/strengthening and postural awareness, to continue a path of progress and healing.
My philosophy is simple - massage at all stages of our lives (thus the name Lifetime Massage & Wellness) on a regular basis, benefits us physically, mentally, emotionally. Clients are often surprised to find they have tension where they had no pain, for example in a hip or shoulder. They are "informed" through touch, and then can experience new ease and function.
