Providing massage therapy centered on relaxation, wellness and pain management -specializing in musician-specific pain issues.
For two decades I have utilized massage therapy for my own wellness, stemming from a childhood whiplash injury with ensuing chronic pain and misuse. In my own quest for a pain-reduced life, I turned to furthering my knowledge of the body and completed my training in Massage Therapy in the hopes of also helping others restore wellness and vitality to their lives.
Why specialize in musician-specific pain issues? Enjoying music has been an integral part of my life since childhood and an activity that has supported and enriched my life in numerous ways. Inspired by a musician friend’s chronic hand and arm pain from decades of playing guitar I became committed to helping alleviate such pain and restore his, and other’s, ability to play for the betterment and longevity of their careers. The repetitious arm and hand muscle use required to play every kind of instrument, the strain on neck and shoulder and back muscles from holding and hauling heavy equipment, and the stress on neck, abdominal and facial muscles that affect vocal quality—all of these can benefit from massage therapy. This work is my way to give back to those that give so much to me through their music.
Much of this methodology can be utilized for those in other professions, from those at desk jobs to construction, to regular ol’ daily life where we over use our muscles in repetitive ways.
My work incorporates elements of Swedish relaxation massage, gentle stretching, clinical massage, trigger point therapy, and instruction of self-massage and muscle use education.
I also believe in working on the pay-what-you-can model and developing a wellness plan customized to fit your budget so we can all help one another lead more fulfilling lives.
