Experience a deeper, specific massage that will reach the deepest layers of tension.
You are in good hands. I have been studying massage since 1977 and have been in practice since 1987. I have given over 18,000 massages. I am an instructor at the Monterey Institute of Touch, where I teach Anatomy & Physiology, Chair Massage and Communications.
If you have had orthopedic surgery, joint replacement, are in physical therapy or pain management- I can help you.

Orthopedic Massage is an umbrella term for using assessment, clinical reasoning, and choosing the proper technique for the tissue involved. It is not a technique as much as a method of treating tissue dysfunction.
This is a very gentle method of stretching the skin over nerve tunnels and trunks. It was developed by Canadian Physical Therapist Diane Jacobs.
I have been active for all my life and very interested in the human movement system. I played football, soccer, lacrosse, swimming, motocross racing, and running in high school. In college I played water polo, swimming, lifeguard, ultimate frisbee, floor hockey, weight training, and running. After college I competed in triathlons, biathlons, and running races. I finished in the top 10 in several races. Next was bicycling, mountain bike racing, cyclocross and road riding. I retired from cycling in 2004. Since then I have tried yoga, meditation, and weight training. I am passionate about learning and am fascinated by the human body.
