Let me tell you a little about myself and my background. Currently, I live in
San Antonio, Texas where I have opened up my athletic performance therapy
practice. My primary focus is on injury prevention, sport recovery, acute and
chronic pain treatment, and sports performance enhancement. In addition to
my athletic performance therapy practice, I have been responsible for
Spark Motion (www.sparkmotion.com) is a leader in motion analysis technology on the mobile platform. Spark Motion was built out of necessity by performance and healthcare professionals in the field who knew there was a better way to work with athletes and patients using the latest tablet technology. The Spark Pro app with a HIPAA Cloud by Spark Motion is the only mobile motion analysis system specifically designed to be powerful enough for industry leading professionals and organizations, yet accessible to all performance coaches, trainers and medical practitioners.
opportunity to observe and work with many elite coaches, athletic trainers and
athletes. Over the past years, I became more and more fascinated with the
parts and pieces of the body and how these all seem to work together to
produce movement. This educational quest led me to rolling up my sleeves
and pursuing my Licensed Massage Therapist (LMT).
While achieving my LMT certification, I started researching and studying
various other forms of therapies. Some therapies, such as Cupping or
Myofascial Release have been around for thousands of years. Their impact
on tissue inspired me start to research just how and why such modalities
effect human tissue. Only used properly, I realized that certain treatments
produce incredible results. The positive results produced by manual tissue
therapy I experienced in the beginning is what continues to inspire my work
every day in clinical kinesiology, physiology of joints, and neuromuscular
optimization. For these components are the foundation to understanding the
interdependence and interlinking of the skeleton, joints and musculature
during human movement.
For every healthcare provider, a thorough knowledge of the location and
interrelationship of the body's structures is essential. I have learned that effective performance therapy consists of any and all techniques that might best serve the needs of my clients / athletes. This understanding has lead me to additional hundreds and hundreds of hours every year in continuing education, trainings, case study work, scientific research and certifications in techniques such as Integrated Manual Orthopedic Therapy, Myoskeletal Alignment Therapist, Kinesio Taping Practitioner, National Academy of Sports Medicine - CPT, and Muscle Activation Specialist and Certified Jumpstart Trainer ...and currently working on my MAT® Master Specialist.
My therapy focus is on balancing the body to optimize performance and
to identify energy leakages before they become injuries. My mission is to
train muscles, not motions. I am committed to strengthening the neuromuscular
system with controlled movement and performance exercise. This is paramount
to build a healthy foundation while limiting breakdowns, pain and injuries.
Just as a muscle stretches, a joint moves, so does fascia and the nervous
system - I utilize components in movement, muscle testing and tissue tone.
Proper biomechanics involve muscles,tendons and ligaments being not only
symmetrical, but multi-directional in strength and stability.
Living an active sports lifestyle myself, I am passionate about helping my
athletes perform better, longer and to help them prevent injuries from their
sports. For veterans of sport, live the best quality of life through regular
body maintenance. Choosing a manual therapist is a very important decision. Exceptional advanced soft tissue therapy is paramount. In addition to developing a customized treatment program that deals with your specific health and lifestyle concerns, I try to be as flexible as possible in scheduling your sessions at time and location that is best for you.
You may already know that muscle therapy is as vital to a healthy mind and body as is regular exercise and diet. All too often, people have demanding lives and turn to temporary solutions that do not necessarily promote recovery, healing or wellness. I'd like to introduce a better choice.
