Deep tissue techniques including active & passive stretching and trigger point work infuse Tabby’s work; she finds the vigorous work profoundly rewarding as she seeks to continually understand the root causes of muscular pain, discomfort & tension.

Tabby finds satisfaction in the trust that develops between therapist and client, this trust being one of the most important aspects of the therapeutic relationship.

Her understanding of anatomy & physiology, injury patterns, referred pain and kinesiology support her intuition and lend perspective to her understanding of the body/mind dynamic.
She enjoys sharing her knowledge of  post massage supportive measures to enhance her clients continued well being off the massage table
