Chip is a Certified Massage Therapist and Chinese medicine practitioner and is absolutely passionate about the work they do with each person. Chip treats each patient as an individual and based on his/her own specific needs in that moment. Chip likes to say, "I don't just touch the body, but also the emotions." With a background in psychology, and an acute awareness of how trauma can manifest itself in the body, Chip works to address not just a patient's symptoms, but the root of the problem.
When not working, advancing her craft, or raising their two daughters, Chip is walking througth the woods and climbing mountains. Chip has also been working with the Parkinson's community and patients the last couple of years after both being inspired by a Stage 4 Parkinson's client, and by seeing the improvements the healing touch brought him.
Chip uses a combination of modalities and techniques such as myofacial release, trigger-point, cupping, moxabustion therapy, etc. that together assist in overall wellness.
With a 500 hour minimum schooling for massage therapy in most states, Chip has completed 1,250 hours, plus additional continuing education hours in modalities such as Trager therapy and Applied Kinesiology.
