I am a trained massage therapist with a neuromuscular certification (LMBT#13976) and I also know trigger point therapy and foot reflexology. What I really love to do, is more a structural analysis of your whole body and bring back your physical balance functionally.

Since I am first trained (by the way over 2000 hours) in Europe, I don't have certifications for many different modalities learned by continuing education classes. The Finnish way is to keep you in a supervised  training 1-3 years and have the feedback from different educators at that time. Before you get your license, you are required to not only practice at school's clinic for a certain amount of hours, but you are tested in actual massage therapy sessions by other practitioners AND an instructor from other than your own school. Add to that the real business plan and graduation work on health field and you will the worth a license.

So in Finland we get a bit longer education before you get your license, but no continuing education is required as here in NC. I kept training myself for 3 years and learned more holistic way of seeing the whole functional kinetic chains in use and, of course, how to correct those chains in action. In NC I haven't been able to collect very many continuing education classes yet, but I am working on it.

My latest addition to techniques is Total Body Balancing that I studied at the D'Ambrosio Institute in Florida. Maybe this will start a new journey for me to study more?

Here are some modalities I tend to include to my treatment plans:
  • Therapeutic Massage
  • Integrative Bodywork
  • Neuromuscular Therapy
  • Movement Therapy
  • Structural Body Analysis
  • Functional Body Alignment
  • Myofascial Release
  • Foot Reflexology
  • Relaxation Techniques
  • TBB (Total Body Balancing)
  • Rib Cage Release Technique
My goal is to serve You the best way I can, and trust not only my knowledge about human body but my intuition about how your body needs to be treated. In each and every time. So I tend to resist the routines.
