Board Certification in Therapeutic Massage and Bodywork is the highest voluntary credential a massage therapist can obtain within the profession—it is above and beyond entry level state licensure. By becoming Board Certified, I represent a community of therapists who have gone above standard educational and work experience requirements with a dedicated and lifelong commit to continuing education. Furthermore, I live up to higher standards and ethics in alignment with The National Certification Board for Therapeutic Massage and Bodywork (NCBTMB).

To achieve my Board Certification, I provided proof of a minimum of 750 hours of education, 250 hours of professional, hands-on work experience, passed a criminal background check, agreed to uphold NCBTMB's Standards of Practice and Code of Ethics, and passed the Board Certification Exam. By passing the BCETMB and meeting all requirements, I demonstrate advanced assessment and critical thinking skills, as well as a commitment to excellence. I wear the credentials BCTMB with pride for myself, my profession, and, most importantly, my clients.

Neuromuscular Therapy (NMT)

I have been certified since 2011 in Neuromuscular Therapy (NMT).  NMT (aka trigger point), is a very therapeutic form of massage.  There are many factors involved in treatment, including a postural assessment, myofascial release, stretching, and release of trigger points.  Trigger points happen when the muscle contracts and the causes of trigger points can be extensive.  Some of which include: stress, working out, driving, poor posture, etc...

This form of massage therapy is therapeutic. It can be painful, but the benefit is unmatched for people experiencing serious pain issues.  some of the ailments that can be treated are:  Migraines, carpal tunnel, frozen shoulder, any kind of rotator cuff pain, sciatica, neck and back pain, plantar fasciaitis, etc...
