I am a Rhode Island Licensed and Nationally Board Certified Massage Therapist
During my experience in the allied health care field for over 18 years, I have worked in the home health care field, skilled nursing/rehabilitation facilities and orthopedic outpatient settings as an Assistant Physical Therapist. I have worked and conferred to develop rehabilitative programs for patients with Physical Therapists, Orthopedic surgeons, MD's, RN's, Social Workers, family members, VA Administrators, and Chiropractors
My extensive medical background and comprehensiveness with various medical conditions, procedures and treatments is an additional plus with the application of the treatments that are provided to all of my clients, as well as coordinated the treatments and plans of care that are provided to clients by the massage therapists that work here at Massage On Main.
I am a volunteer member of the RI Sports Massage Team, providing sports massage for athlete recovery at the finish line of such events as the Boston Marathon, The RI Special Olympics, Save the Bay, The Diabetes Run, and other events throughout the New England area.
As a former team leader on the RI Crisis Massage Team, I was responsible for a team of twelve or more licensed massage therapists in call downs to state emergency/disasters to provide restorative massage to first responders in the event of a catastrophic event under the direction of Dr. Anne Balboni, state coordinator & clinical director of the state wide Rhode Island Critical Incident Stress Management
As a member of the national and local chapters of the American Massage Therapy Association and having served on the RIAMTA as a board member and as an alternate delegate and having attended The Fifth International Fascia Congress, I have a strong bond and continuing connection to a growing number of local and international massage therapists, researchers and scientists and I make every effort to keep up to date with the newest and latest treatments and scientific research.
Massage On Main is proud to say that we value and encourage continuing education and have contracted with two of the most highly rated therapeutic massage schools in the nation, Bancroft School of Massage Therapy and the Community College of Rhode Island's to host student interns as they work to earn their massage degrees and certificates.
We are grateful for all of our clients and we look forward to working with you.
