My Focus

Massage Therapy

Tuina, myofascial release, Swedish massage and trigger point therapy are four techniques that I use in a daily basis in my massage therapy practice. The combination of those techniques has helped most of my patients suffering from musculoskeletal pain and stiffness, repetitive strain injuries, chronic headaches and muscle tension associated with emotional stress. Other massage therapy techniques are also incorporated when I feel the need to be more specific in any way.

RMT Acupuncture

RMT acupuncture can treat conditions within the scope of practice of massage therapy. It allows me to work on relatively deeper tissues, and contributes more effectively to treating musculoskeletal conditions. The body’s improved physiologic function encouraged by acupuncture combined with the effects of massage therapy on the soft tissues and blood circulation can produce powerful therapeutic and long lasting results. As a bonus, my patients experience deeper levels of relaxation which directly facilitates the healing process.

Along with acupuncture my training includes tuina, moxibustion, cupping and guasha which are all an integral part of the Traditional Chinese Medicine system and can also be used within the massage therapy scope of practice. Those methods do not necessarily include needling and can be used alternatively or in combination with acupuncture depending on each individual case.

TCM Acupuncture

Traditional Chinese Medicine Acupuncture has a broader scope of practice which is beyond musculoskeletal dysfunction and is rooted in the ancient Chinese healing system. It includes a TCM diagnosis based on the patient’s health history, observation and palpation assessments and a treatment plan which will determine the best therapeutic method (acupuncture, tuina, moxibustion, cupping and/or guasha) and approach for the patient and his/her condition.
