She is passionate about women's health, injury rehabilitation and supporting whole families through massage. Ariel takes great care in tailoring her treatments to each individual’s needs and rehabilitation goals. She credits her effectiveness to taking time to learn about her client's body patterns, daily lives and routines. Ariel also believes that using breathing exercises, humor and stress reduction are essential to the healing process.
In 2012 she experienced a severe car accident, leaving her with nine closed spinal fractures. Her personal experience with recovery greatly influenced her path as a practitioner. It gave her a deeper understanding of how trauma affects the body, mind and spirit and the role of massage therapy in trauma rehabilitation. Ariel is committed to patient education and advocates that massage therapy decreases pain, reduces overall healing time and can improve anyone’s quality of life.
