Over the years of continuous hands-on treatment of patients and continuing education, I have developed a philosophy for how I approach massage therapy. Using a combination of visual assessment of a patient’s posture, listening to the verbal history of their pain, injury or traumas as well as taking into account their job and daily life, we look to return the patient to a functionally neutral posture. Among the multiple modalities that I rely upon to achieve that goal, the majority of the massage therapy performed is neuromuscular therapy and myofascial release technique. Working for Ohio State Integrative Medicine has certainly become a home and a passion. I enjoy the opportunity to help such a wide variety people. I am a 2003 graduate of the American Institute of Alternative Medicine.
