Hello and Welcome,

I’d like to tell you a bit about myself and how I fell in love with this work.
Pain is scary, isolating, and most importantly sucks. I have had moments of pain on and off during my life, but I was never prepared for how brutal acute pain can be until I suffered a nasty head trauma when I was struck on the side of the head with a baseball bat. Nothing would stop the pounding. It felt like someone was running a jack-hammer inside my skull. The doctors tried all kinds of pain meds… But nothing seemed to work.
As I was lying on the hospital bed terrified and feeling hopeless I turned to the same method I use with my clients and started to perform very gentle Myofascial Release on my exploding head. It was the only thing that brought me relief. As the days passed and I continued to heal the sense of hopelessness was gone and I wasn’t at the mercy of my pain anymore. I felt an indescribable sense of empowerment. I was back in control, stronger than my pain and, most of all, I had my life back.
Knowing what MFR has done for me, I want my clients to gain control of their pain as well. When you’re in control of your pain, you feel on top of the world; like you can achieve anything. Everyone deserves to feel like that.
I was first introduced to MFR much earlier. I’m a valley native and grew up in Pelham, MA. As a child, I knew I wanted to go into a profession where I was helping people and wasn’t working at a desk! When I was 16 my horse, Delaney was injured in a trailer and after pain killers and rest didn’t solve the problem bodywork was suggested. Unsure of how much it would actually help and aware of the significant cost I delayed making an appointment.

A few more weeks went by and when Delaney was still not right I made an appointment for him. I  had never heard of myofascial release (MFR), but the therapist was happy to explain the technique. Upon instantly seeing how Delaney’s body responded I was intrigued. After regular treatment, Delaney was back to his old self and I had discovered what I wanted to do with my life.

After graduating from Amherst High School I received my B.S. from the University of Maryland, College Park and then went straight to the Central Maryland School of Massage. I then became a myofascial release practioner and love to keep learning by taking many continuing education courses and seminars each year.

Life is short and I know how much it sucks to be controlled by pain. Life is about enjoyment and fulfillment.  Don’t be a prisoner of pain. What are you waiting for? Your pain free life is closer than you think.
