Why should patients choose you as their provider instead of others in the area?
I am a trust-worthy person and a good listener. My practice centers around developing individualized treatment plans as one treatment plan does not fit everyone equally. I believe in order to achieve this, positive communication is key. By working together, patients can feel healthier and happier in a supportive environment. I encourage my patients to become active participants in their health journey.
What are the top 3 treatments that you focus on?
Combining Traditional Chinese and Swedish massage techniques – I have extensive experience with Swedish massage, trigger point therapy, deep tissue massage, therapeutic massage, myofascial release, proprioceptive neuromuscular facilitation, pregnancy/prenatal massage, lymphatic drainage, reflexology and many more. I take great pride in my skills and I look forward to adding more to this list! I use these treatments and others to improve function and to provide pain relief.
What are you proud of in your practice?
I am proud to see progress with my patients whether it be big or small. An aspect of my job that makes it so enjoyable is the fact that some effects of treatment are tangible. It’s very encouraging to hear patients express relief that their discomforts have been alleviated or that they’ve noticed improvements in their functions. I take pride in making a difference!
Which cases do you enjoy treating? Why?
I value every case because everyone’s experience is different. I work at two clinics with varying populations, and each case adds knowledge to help me become a better, well rounded therapist.
