I enjoy making a positive impact in patients’ wellness. The therapist and the patient are part of an individualized team; meaning the therapist communicates well and uses their skills to help achieve the patient’s goals and needs. I work with a combination of myofascial techniques, deep tissue releases as well as joint mobilizations when needed.
