Starting in May I have the fabulous opportunity of launching my business in it’s new Huntsville location. Elevate Therapeutic Services was founded in my hometown of Uxbridge and I had five wonderful years of working as a massage therapist to clients of all ages. However, as those of you who live here know, there’s nothing like Muskoka life and so my husband and I relocated here in January.
As a massage therapist I am fascinated by anatomy and the science of pain and I work hard to stay up to date on scientific literature. I will work with you to create a treatment plan that is focused on your goals – these are often anywhere from wanting to wind down on a day off to wanting to increase range of motion or decrease pain. My goal as a health care practitioner is to communicate well with clients and always work within their pain tolerance and comfort level.
I have worked with quite a few clients with brain injuries during my career and have spent years studying articles and research on brain injuries. While I certainly wouldn’t propose that massage can cure brain injuries I think it can be a valuable tool in the recovery process for both the injured individual and their support system. Clients with brain injuries may sometimes require changes to the treatment environment to reduce sensory information and I try to always have music and white noise options, ways to dim lights, different lotions and oils etc to accommodate as many needs as possible.
