Licensed Clinical Massage Therapist
Shannon was was diagnosed with Scoliosis at the age of 12. To help correct the Scoliosis, Shannon endured many years of wearing the “Boston Brace.” However, the pain only increased. Finally, at the age of 19 it was decided she would undergo a major surgery to correct the Scoliosis.
After the surgery and during rehabilitation Shannon came to understand how her muscles should be stretched and exercised to keep her body equalized. This experience led her to study at Blue Heron Academy for Medical Massage Therapy. For years she has been treating patients with various muscular muscle tissue and the joint complex, she helps her clients with chronic conditions by stimulating physiological healing mechanisms related to inhibition of pain, remolding of connective tissues, restoration of normal range of motion, and a decrease in connective tissue inflammation. Today Shannon loves her job and looks forward in helping others feel healed and rejuvenated.
