Shirley has been an endurance athlete for over 10 years. She has completed over 30 sprints/oplympic distance races, 5 half Ironmans and she is also a 2 X Ironman. (IMLP & IMMT)
During these adventures, she has also encountered injuries as many athletes do. She has trained with an injury, raced with an injury, and have had to miss getting to the starting line because of an injury.
She has experienced hamstring pulls, shoulder issues, piriformis syndrome, hip and knee issues, and has developed arthritis in the right foot.
With all of this, becoming a massage therapist was the only answer. It gave her a better understanding of the human body and the reasons why these injuries occur along with prevention.
Self-care can go along way and we are not getting any younger.
Till this day, I know I am not invincible an am not always pain free, but I always turn to massage therapy first when the need arises.
My goal is to understand what it is that brought you to massage therapy. We’ll work together to restore your strength and mobility, reduce or eliminate your symptoms, and invigorate your sense of self.
