1. I’m Authentic.
I’m not trying to sell you. Yes, I want your business, but I’m not afraid of telling you to go for a shorter session, if that’s what I think you would benefit most from. I’m also not going to try and sell you product. When I do eventually add products to my business, they will be local, ethically created products that I truly believe in. I am genuinely here to help you heal. I am also not afraid to refer you to someone who I think might be a better fit for you, depending on what your needs are.
2. I’m Highly Skilled.
I have 9 years of professional experience. First off, that’s huge. Most therapists don’t make it past 7 years. Massage Therapy can be hard on the body if you don’t work in proper alignment, and that’s another reason why I’m so happy with the education that I received at The Healing Arts Institute in Fort Collins, Colorado. Colorado, especially Fort Collins, is a mecca for sports and athletics. The owners of HAI as well as all of the instructors are all currently practicing Licensed Massage Therapists and have all been practicing for at least 5 years. I also learned their specific Neuromuscular Therapy technique, which gives me a unique advantage over other massage therapists you may encounter. Besides having the technical skills, I’m also compassion, caring, and I listen. I will listen to what you tell me and help you achieve the outcome you are looking for. I encourage communication, so if you ever feel like you need more or less pressure, or if you don’t like a particular technique, please tell me – I won’t take offense.
3. You'll Receive More Value.
Besides giving you a stellar 60 or 90 minute service, after each session there will be a stretching and exercise session ranging between 5 and 15 minutes, depending on long you’ve already been seeing me. One of my principal values in healing and holistic therapy is to get you to be able to fix yourself. Stretching and at-home therapies are a big portion of that. During this session I won’t just tell you the stretches, I’ll actually show you the stretches and have you do them with me. We can also talk about strengthening exercises as well as ice and heat therapies.
4. I Care About Helping You Learn to Heal Yourself.
Healing yourself holistically isn’t an overnight fix. It takes time and dedication, mostly from you. Sure, you can come in to see me twice a week for 6 weeks to treat your neck tension, but chances are, if you aren’t doing the stretches and strengthening exercises that I give you, then you’re going to be coming back to me in a month or two with the same issues. My ultimate goal is to get you to a place where you’re only coming in to see me every 4 to 6 weeks for regular maintenance work.
