Massage at Skin and Zen Spa, Massage Therapist  in Mount Solon
“I've been in the medical field since 1998. I was greatly concerned by the practice of over-prescribing pain medicine, antibiotics and steroids, misuse by the consumer, and the great dependency that people place on pharmaceuticals. This led me to a career in massage therapy. I help each client develop a wellness plan to meet their individual needs. Not only offering total relaxation, I've had great success with alleviating chronic pain as well as acute injuries and conditions.

“My primary practice is Structural Integration, a system of bodywork based on the pioneering work of Ida Rolf. This involves a series of sessions (I ordinarily do 12) consisting primarily of deep myofascial work and movement education. The goal is to balance the body's musculature and connective tissues in such a way that the bones can most easily align in the gravity field we live in. This alignment takes the strain off the structure.
