I have been a licensed and practicing massage therapist for over 30 years and an equine therapist for over 25 years.
Massage affects not only those tight muscles, but the nervous, circulatory, and lymphatic systems.
As of August 2019, I am certified by MLD Institute International as a Manual Lymphatic Drainage Therapist. MLD has been a modality that spiked my interest many years ago and although I have done some, I was able to complete all training and received certification. This is is a light but powerful therapy in helping the body by moving lymph through the body.
Although my foundations is in Swedish massage I specialize in cupping massage. I was certified as an A.C.E. cupping massage therapist in October 2014 and since then have used cupping routinely in my sessions. The therapeutic benefits of cupping massage is that it draws out the inflammation from deep within the tissues, increasing blood flow and allowing fresh oxygen and nutrients to the tissues, as well as freeing up any adhesions or scar tissue. Cupping works well in assisting the lymphatic system to move waste fluids from the body. This therapy works well for clients who have had joint replacements or an injury, it assists the body in the natural healing process and reduces swelling.
I look forward to working with you.
