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

Business Development and Marketing for a company called Spark Motion.


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.

 

                                                                 My involvement in professional sports with Spark Motion has allowed me the

                                                                 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 learned of a unique therapy used for

                                                                 thousands of years in oriental medicine, known as Cupping (Myofascial 

                                                                 Decompression).  Soon after, I became trained and certified cupping    

                                                                 practitioner in this ancient modality modernized.  Taking this ancient healing art

                                                                 and integrating it into my therapy has been an marvelous addition to manual      

                                                                 treatments producing incredible results.  These early positive affects in tissue

                                                                 I experienced in the beginning continues to inspire my educational journey

                                                                 every day in clinical kinesiology, physiology of joints, and neuromuscular

                                                                 stabilization.  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 and certifications in such techniques as Integrated Manual Orthopedic Therapy, Myoskeletal Alignment Techniques, Kinesio Taping Practitioner and National Academy of Sports Medicine - CPT. ...and currently working on my Masters in Myoskeletal Techniques as well as finishing my MAT™ Specialist - Muscle Activation Techniques™.

 

My therapy focus is on balancing the body to optimize performance and

to identify energy leakages before they become injuries.  Even the smallest

imbalance in an athlete's foot strike could, over time, create a chain reaction

of physical breakdowns (aka - Ascending Syndromes). Just as a muscle

stretches, a joint moves, so does fascia and the nervous system - and you

can identify these 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

clients and athletes live the best quality of life through regular integrated

manual muscle therapy.  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.  Discover the benefits of integrated muscle therapy.
