I take extreme pride in my role as practitioner. As a fascial trained therapist, my goal is to elevate massage to a higher level. To educate clients and help them understand that body work can heal, as-well-as be a beneficial part of your healthcare process.
What is Fascia?
Fascia is a band or sheet of connective tissue, primarily collagen, beneath the skin that attaches, stabilizes, encloses, and separates muscles and other internal organs. It connects your entire body and over time we have to come to realize its importance. By looking at the body as a whole instead of individual muscle groups, massage and body work can aid in the healing process to help manipulate and change overused, misused, underused and injured muscles & connective tissue.
I use a variety of techniques depending on your needs. While some love a more clinical experience when getting a massage other are in need of an emotional and mental break. I provide a calm and clean setting regardless of your preference. Every session starts with discussing your goals, even if you have seen me for years, I never start a massage without an update on stress level, pain scale or any changes to injuries good or bad.
Lastly, if you are a new client, I ask you to kindly come 10 - 15 minutes early. I do full session times which means if you pay for 60 minutes, you get 60 minutes. This gives you time to complete my intake form and chat before we start.
I hope you get a feel for the passion I have for my work and you will always find a safe and healing environment at Birch and Body Wellness.
