I grew up in Dallas, Oregon. In 2000, I attended Oregon School of Massage in Salem, Oregon. In June of 2002, I received my Oregon massage license (#8227).
I practiced in Beaverton, Oregon January, 2003 to April, 2007. In November, 2007, I moved my business to Salem, Oregon.
In June, 2010, I moved my practice to Dallas, Oregon, changed my business name to Pure Muscle Therapy to focus on treatment.
Providing integrated massage treatment techniques with relaxing/healing energy to relieve stress and rehabilitate muscles, so that clients are empowered to attain and maintain long term wellness of body, mind, and spirit.
I am trained and certified in many treatment therapies to give you, the client, the best care you deserve while on your journey of recovery.
Soft tissue techniques targets muscles, tendons, ligaments, or other connective tissue such as fascia. A soft tissue massage includes a whole range of massage depths, pressures and durations. Deep Tissue reaches deep layers of muscles. It is used to break down knots and relieve pressure points throughout the body. Trigger points are hyper irritable spots in the fascia surrounding skeletal muscle.
The muscles are passively positioned (usually shortened) to stop the strands of involuntary muscle contraction. I find tightness of the muscles to find tender points, usually near an articulation (joint), I position the body until the SRT tender point is gone or mostly diminished. I hold this position for 90 to 120 seconds. After, the tissue is now soft and the range of motion has increased.
STR breaks up the fibrotic and adhered mass of scar tissue to quickly allow the muscle to return to natural. Once the muscle has returned to the original resting length, there is an immediate release. Muscle is positioned and begins to stretch in a very specific direction or plane. Injury has been defined. A determined pressure is applied into the affected tissue.
On September 2017 I took over my whole office space. I had been sharing space with an insurance for 6 years. Now it will be quiet with no extra talking or distractions.
