Dee

Massage Therapist

With 5+ years in the industry, Dee holsters a range of techniques for your treatment plan. She has undergone various training courses and strives to be as best-equipped as possible for a range of presentations. Depending on your goals, your treatment is likely to include a combination of techniques, some of which being:

myofascial release: an effective way to reduce broad tension, with long, deep pressure being applied
trigger point therapy: an effective way to release those pesky knots
functional cupping: a “western” take on the traditional therapy, where you perform muscle-specific movements while the cups are in place
(requires participation, ranges from about 5-15 minutes in duration)
passive stretches: slow, deep breathing while you allow yourself to get taken into deep stretches

When Dee is not in the clinic or studying, chances are she’s hanging out with the parents or taking her kids on outdoor adventures in the ranges or along the coast.
