My focus is on the muscles of the leg from the knee down to the foot with an emphasis on the muscles of the foot.
The health of our feet impact our overall health, foot pain can limit our ability to keep active which in turns impacts our quality of life and our health. A sedentary lifestyle has many risks including heart disease, diabetes and cancer to name a few. Risk of Sedentary Lifestyles
There are many reasons people have trouble with their feet such as; improper fitted shoes, health problems, structural foot problems, injuries, repetitive activities all of which can place stress on the muscles.
What Is Myofascial Trigger Point Therapy?
Myofascial Trigger Point Therapy is a type of bodywork that is safe and effective in alleviating myofascial pain associated with a myofascial trigger point. A myofascial trigger point is a “knot” in the muscle. This “knot” actually shortens the muscle and can refer pain to other areas of the body. By applying a soft compression touch to the “knot”, the “knot” will soften and release as this happens the muscle lengthens allowing greater freedom of movement. With the release of the “knot” pain is reduced or can be completely eliminated. The client remains fully clothed during a session however; loose light weight clothing should be worn to your appointment.

I use a combination of Myofascial Trigger Point Therapy and Reflexology techniques tailored to your specific foot pain to relax the muscles in the foot and leg. Using this combination of techniques can help increase range of motion, increase circulation, and reduce foot pain associated with myofascial trigger points and create a sense of whole body relaxation.
