Helping high performing individuals return to play and unleash their true potential




I use hands-on evaluation to assess the texture, tension, and movement of your muscles, fascia, tendons, ligaments, and nerves.



Techniques such as Kinetic Therapy (IASTM) are applied, to release soft tissue restrictions (adhesions and scar tissue) - the primary cause of pain, stiffness, weakness, compensation, and altered biomechanics



My goal is to partner with you to provide the tools and knowledge necessary for successful recovery, prevention and return to play.
