Expertise

I can answer questions related to stretching, deep tissue, reflexology, cancer massage and orthobionomy as well as post-surgery massage and insurance filing for massage therapists and how to get a massage therapy license and working with fibromyalgia clients. I cannot answer questions especially related to energy work, accupressure, rules of massage outside the United States.

Experience in the area

I have been practicing massage therapy for 6 years and am nationally certified. I am certified in Integrative reflexology. I was trained in insurance filing. I routinely work with doctors on their clients following surgery. I have taken 3 classes in orthobionomy and have had training in cancer massage and read books on cancer massage and massage for the medically frail. My primary area of massage is working with individuals in pain from fibromyagia to auto accidents to chronic pain. Depending on the case depends upon the modality used, but I perform a lot of deep tissue massage.
