I am a NYS Licensed Massage Therapist, and I have been practicing for the last 16 years. I went through a two year program at NCCC in Saranac Lake, NY. There I learned an array of different techniques. I have been taught how to do Thai, Reflexology, Deep Tissue, Trigger Point Therapy, Swedish, Pregnancy, Hot Stone, and Shiatsu. For three and a half years I worked at the Whiteface Lodge in Lake Placid, NY as the Lead Massage Therapist. I taught other therapists our different protocols, along with writing them. I have worked in the Plattsburgh, N.Y area doing massage therapy for the last nine years!
I consider myself to be more of a Therapeutic Massage Therapist rather than your typical spa therapist. I do a lot of Trigger Point Therapy, which really helps to relieve the hyperirritable spots in the skeletal muscle. These spots are the most common cause of pain in the body. I am still furthering my education by taking different courses, like myofascial release and releasing the rotator cuff. I am looking into other techniques that will help me offer more to my clients!
