The Story of Performance Prehab
From Adversity to Expertise
My journey to becoming the therapist I am today at Performance Prehab is one of resilience and determination. Surviving 12 motor vehicle accidents and enduring 17 concussions, I’ve faced significant physical challenges. However, these experiences haven’t held me back; instead, they’ve shaped my approach to therapy. I’ve come to understand the importance of treating not just the pain but the root cause of dysfunction. This insight forms the cornerstone of my practice
Over my 25-year career as a Registered Massage Therapist (RMT), I’ve had the privilege of treating over 30,000 people. Each individual’s story has contributed to my understanding and approach to healing. My expertise is broad, encompassing Advanced Myo-Fascial Release, Craniosacral Therapy, and TMJ Assessment & Treatment. I believe in a tailored approach, recognizing that each body has its unique needs and challenges.
My own recovery journey highlighted the importance of posture and movement, leading me to specialize in these areas. Through intensive training with the Postural Restoration Institute and proficiency in Functional Movement Screening, I’ve developed a comprehensive approach to therapy, ensuring that I address the intricacies of body mechanics.
As an athletic individual myself, I understand the impact of sports injuries. My specialization in Sports Injury Recovery and Kinesiology Taping is not just about healing; it’s about turning setbacks into opportunities for growth and improvement.
The practice of yoga has been instrumental in my personal and professional life. As a certified Yoga Teacher, I integrate these principles into my sessions, aiming to harmonize the body and mind for optimal healing and resilience.
My passion for golf led me to become a Certified Golf Fitness Specialist from the National Academy of Sports Medicine and Certified in Level 1 from the Titleist Performance Institute. Here, I’ve learned to enhance the Body Swing Connection, proper sequencing to help golf enthusiasts improve their game and prevent injuries.
In my therapy sessions, I incorporate Visualization for Pain techniques. This method has been crucial in my own healing process, demonstrating the powerful role of the mind in overcoming physical challenges
My story is a testament to the power of resilience and the importance of a holistic approach to therapy. At Performance Prehab, I merge my personal experiences with professional expertise, offering a unique and effective path to healing.
