I am a California licensed massage therapist, offering skilled orthopedic manual therapy. I help people seeking chronic or acute pain relief, relaxation, increased flexibility, or overall well-being. I graduated from The Natural Healing Institute Inc, in Encinitas California as a Holistic Health Practitioner. I hold certifications in medical, sports, acupressure, myofacial release and and aromatherapy massage. My work is client-centered, and my treatments are created to meet my client’s specific goals. A thorough consultation, and assessment are performed at the first session in order to figure out how to proceed with a personalized treatment plan. I look forward to helping you feel your best!
Poor posture can lead to muscular stress and fatigue, which can lead to poor circulation, weakened immunity, disturbed lymph flow, low energy levels, frequent illness, headaches, digestive problems and waning agility. A desk job posture damages the body, to counter this sit with both feet flat on floor to support spine and take short breaks to take a walk.
Massage therapy can lower cortisol levels, increase dopamine and serotonin (our happy hormones) and lower excitatory hormones like norepinephrine and epinephrine. Massage has been shown to help the body shift into a peaceful parasympathetic state (rest and digest mode) from stressful sympathetic state (fight-or-flight mode), extracting stress away.
