- What is your typical process for working with a new customer?
Typically when I see a client for the first time, I greet and introduce myself, wait to be welcomed in, then remove my shoes. There after, I will ask some common questions such as; How are they feeling today? If there is any feeling of pain or discomfort anywhere? Is it a burning, acking, throbbing, stabbing, or dull sensation and where? Are there any area that would benefit more attention or any areas to be aviod? Next, have the client escort me to the area for therapy, and have the client prepare for session as I setup table if required.
- What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?
I have worked in several massage type of environments such as Physical Therapy office, Spa office, and mobile massage. All giving me an opportunity to provide all types of modalites from patient's with injuries, athlete's, and any daily stressor that have accured over time. While serving in the Armed Forces, I developed a vast knoweldge of inforomation about our world. I have interacted with a wide variety of people and their cultures building a great sense of morals, respect and responsibility. I have the ability to improvise in any situation exposed to. Also learned about body biomechanics, developed intagrated workout programs, viewed how overtraining or not training enough could cause muscle inbalances or build inhibtors to our daily lives as Personal Trainer.
- How did you get started doing this type of work?
I Have 1st hand dealt with, and still dealing with, multiple injuries that I encountered serving in the armed forces. Over 10 years of cycling through countless hours of physical therapy and surgeries, I looked for an educational approach to help myself (then to help others with invisible injuries)! I am very passionate, skilled, intuitive professional, that understands our bodies, bio-mechanics, and anatomy.
