"I find that merging the two professions of Athletic Training and Massage Therapy create a balanced approach that helps me help you. My assessment skills from my Athletic Training background will help me assess what muscles are causing (or not causing) the dysfunctions and utilizing my massage skills provide me with the palpation and hands-on ability to provide effective muscle manipulation."
