As light as I can go, I also perform a deep tissue massage which is with a firmer therapeutic touch to reduce any tightness, soreness and tension in the muscles.

I like to incorporate my light to medium touch to deep pressure massage and with some trigger points, depending on my client's issues. Combining these different techniques for a relaxing, yet effective massage in relieving tight muscles from everyday use or injuries from overuse.

In my free time, I like to catch up on my adjustments and massages as well.

Since I've been with Dr. Gamble, I've seen how he has grown so much as a business and employer l've seen great things with his work. He puts a lot of effort into changing his patient's lives when it comes to alleviating temporary or chronic pain. My role in his business is to ease tension and pain. With my strong touch, I help to provide comfort and aid for tight muscles and help relax and sooth overworked muscles.

My goal is to grow and learn as a Massage Therapist and to provide better techniques and modalities.

It has been a pleasure working with all of the staff at Gamble Chiropractic and seeing the changes we are making in the lives of our patients. I have witnessed over and over again the positive life changes that happen to a chiropractic patient. When someone who can barely walk into the office due to excessive pain levels, can walk out after completing their treatment plan with a smile on their face saying "I'm going golfing", it is more than gratifying to say the least. I have witnessed these changes in all ages of chiropractic patients from newborn babies to the elderly. I believe chiropractic is not only a form of pain relief, but also an important part of a healthy lifestyle. 

In my free time, I enjoy riding a Harley with my partner, working out and travelling.
