Hello and welcome!
"My approach to bodywork is one of restoring balance. Dysfunction in the body is caused by imbalance, whether it be from injury or poor habits, and restoring balance will lead to better physical, mental and emotional well-being. I like to educate my clients about their bodies, making them more aware of the muscular dysfunction and how their body is compensating for the dysfunction. Muscular dysfunctions that may seem like minor inconveniences may lead to major muscular dysfunction and/or pain in the future. My goal is to find the source of the pain and heal it, and then help your body unwind the muscular dysfunction and/or the compensating movement(s), so that you are moving well and pain free again. Chasing pain doesn't heal you, it may give you temporary relief, but finding the source of the pain will free you from that pain."
No stranger to injury, Victoria sustained a dislocated left shoulder from a motorcycle accident, and a misaligned knee joint from hitting her leg on the motorcycle gas tank and ground. She paid out-of-pocket and spent over a year in physical therapy because she was not satisfied with the limited range-of-motion that sidelined her from running and weight lifting. Victoria is positive that if she had a massage therapist like her working on her injuries, she would not have needed to spend over a year in physical therapy. For this reason, Victoria gives more than 100% to every client she works on to get them back in the game as quickly as she can.
Victoria has worked in the spa environment, with physical therapists, chiropractors and acupuncturists. She has worked on a variety of pain syndromes and post-surgical rehabilitation including - chronic low back pain, frozen shoulder, sciatica, plantar fasciitis, carpal tunnel syndrome, post-MCL repair, post-rotator cuff repair, IT band syndrome, thoracic outlet syndrome, and many others, with much success.
