After reading it, we thought it would be something our members would love to read as well! Rosanna is doing some amazing work with our members and you can read more about why her technique is so effective in her letter below !
I’d like to let you know a little bit more about what kind of massage I’m offering here at the club.
I have been practicing massage for 7 years this month. I graduated from Whatcom Community College’s Massage Program in August of 2009. The program focus was mainly in injury treatment and recovery massage. My continuing education has been primarily focused on deep tissue massage. I have also taken a 36-hour course in Craniosacral Therapy, which is a very light form of massage that targets the brain, spinal cord and the neural connections throughout the body.
In my massages I usually use a slow, deep pressure that allows the fascia to warm up and release adhesions and scar tissue, directly improving range of motion and muscle function. One of my specialties is identifying movement patterns that could be causing dysfunction, and suggesting simple ergonomic changes to daily activities that help reduce stress on the body.
As many of you know, the body is very connected and pain in one area usually is caused by a compensation pattern or dysfunction in another area. My favorite part of massage is finding out how to not only help the area that is restricted, but also to find out the other areas that are contributing to the problem.
