A little About Me

IMG_2016 copy

Hi!  I’m Vered.  I consider myself a pain detective—my goal is to help you achieve relief from chronic muscular and connective tissue pain, as well as generalized stress and tension.  Drawing on critical thought and creativity I integrate multiple techniques from my knowledge base to create a session that is therapeutic and restorative.  My “adaptive massage” tailors various techniques to help your body heal itself.  It may include Swedish, myofascial release, acupressure, trigger point, cupping, and/or reflexology.  When it comes to massage, I don’t believe in “No pain, no gain”, instead I like to work within an area I call “tolerable tender”.  I think this gives the most effective relief for the long haul and makes my practice a bit different from the others.  Be prepared to experience a decrease of pain, increase in range of motion, relief of tension and stress.  

As my client, you need to be proactive, empowered, and committed to your growth and forward momentum—not a passive audience member. We’re helping your body heal together.   We will talk in detail to determine what modalities you need.  This is a collaborative effort and If I can not be the right massage therapist for you, I will let you know and  make a recommendation.  

Trivial facts about me:

When I am not working with my clients, I like to spend time with my friends and my dog, Penny (the happiest sound I can think of is Penny snoring-it makes me smile). Penny is 10yrs old and I rescued her when she was 5 1/2.  Bean, my cat, is 13 and definitely in charge.  I’ve had her since she was 6 wks old-she was a “Secret Santa” gift!  They tolerate each other well.  My favorite question is “I wonder why…?”  I can almost always be found in the middle of some creative endeavor to learn something new, whether that be cooking a new recipe, crafting art, reupholstering furniture, photographing the world around me, or investigating the science behind “I wonder why…?”.
