Massage has been a part of her life since she was a young child. Growing up, she would constantly get shin-splints, sometimes the pain was so severe it was debilitating. Her Mother would massage her legs to help ease the pain. Massage worked better, and more efficiently than over the counter medication that we normally self-prescribe for acute pain. When she was older, Her Mother developed Plantar Fasciitis, she would use similar massage techniques to ease her Mothers pain. This, is where She believes her passion for massage therapy started within her heart.
It was in October of 2007, when She answered her calling to become a massage therapist by attending Nevada School of Massage Therapy. Upon completing education in October of 2008, She acquired a position in the rehabilitation department of the Las Vegas Veterinary Specialty Center. While at LVVSC, She introduced massage therapy as addition to their standard therapy practices, which has now become a part of their standard practice. In 2010, She relocated to the beautiful Pacific Northwest, and transitioned massage from veterinary medicine to chiropractic care and various alternative medical practices.
Adrianna, completely believes in the healing aspects of massage therapy. From breaking down of scar tissue post-surgery allowing for better blood flow and increasing range of motion, to de-stressing the rigors of day to day life, massage never ceases to amaze her with its endless applications and benefits. Throughout her 7yrs as a massage practitioner, massage therapy has taught her and continues the importance of caring for one’s body as a whole (mind-body- spirit).
She states “Massage helps us in many ways, bringing us back to center, allowing us to breathe, guiding us in ways to heal ourselves on multiple levels. Massage is an ever growing field, filled with new discoveries and new techniques, deepening our understanding of the human body. Truly, massage has woven threads of healing into my inner being. I consider myself fortunate to be able to say, I love what I do, my only hope is that you will love what I do too.”
