Massage Coach About Massage Credentials

Massage Credentials

I am indeed a “student of the game” and a life-long learner.  I love massage and I’m fascinated with anatomy, physiology, exercise, and on how massage can be used to enhance health.  There are many types of massage and each requires additional knowledge and skills which I can use to help my clients find relief from pain or move towards wellness.  

 I’m very proud of my credentials.  Below is a list of my formal training (classes approved by the State of Delaware).  In addition, a significant amount of my knowledge has come from self-directed learning: I have a large and ever-growing library of books and videos.   Also, my intellectual curiosity inspires me to spend many long hours surfing the web, constantly seeking more knowledge.

 I am not only a massage theapist but also a trainer.  For details about my background and to see my trainer credentials click here.  I have conducted courses on basic massage at a local school as well as traveled the country to teach classes on medical massage.  I currently offer a really fun class on how to use massage to reduce stress.  It's quite effective and truly hands-on.  For details click here.
