Beginning my studies at the Mueller College of Holistic Studies in San Diego, California, in 1994, I found that I enjoyed massage and bodywork. Turning then to the Sarasota School of Natural Healing Arts in Florida in 1996, I received both Florida and National Certification.
Returning to the Carolinas, I pursued a private practice in Fort Mill, SC, and now in Asheville, NC.
Studying modalities which would enable me to relieve pain and discomfort from workouts, strenuous weekend warrior jaunts, overwork and fatigue, I have a variety of techniques to relieve this discomfort.
Some of my clients have been the Charlotte Dance Theater, Ice Hocky Players, Pro Wrestlers. I also did seated massage at Festival in the Park in Charlotte, one of the nation's top 100 Festivals for several years. I have introduced many people to massage by seated massage.
As you enter the massage room, you will be enveloped in soaring, meditative music. Climbing onto the heated massage table, you begin the session by taking some deep breaths, allowing relaxation to do deeper with each breath.
Taking long, deep strokes down to your lower back, up your sides, then down again, I knead out the stiffness in your spinal erectors. I then work on your shoulders, and traps, gently stretching the neck muscles.
Continuing to your glutes, I knead them to release the tension from sitting or driving. Proceeding to your legs, I work the hamstrings, calves, and do stretching to lengthen the quads and relieve the muscle stiffness.
Then, turning you over, I work your chest, pecs, arms, and abs. I also work the hamstrings, inner thigh, outer legs which are stressed from squats, running, bicycling, or other weekend warrior activities. I do pulls, stretches, kneading...whatever it takes to get you loosened up from the stress of your daily life.
Now, you are putty in my hands. You are in an altered state of bliss, floating semi-conscious, enjoying the comfort of deep relaxation.
I cover you with a warm towel. You are in the twilight zone.
