Andrea graduated from Sutherland-Chan School & Teaching Clinic in 2000. She joined White Pine Therapeutics in April 2001, left in June 2006 to establish her own clinic, and returned again to practice at White Pine in August 2015.
Over her years of practice Andrea has developed a detailed approach to massage therapy. Her strength lies in focussed, therapeutic treatments that address two or three key problem areas in a one-hour session. Her aim is to design a treatment which creates a sense of wholeness, addressing the body’s musculoskeletal complaints with an awareness of the mind’s quest for a sense of calm, integrated well-being.
Andrea believes massage therapy goes beyond the treatment of a collection of tight muscles or physical complaints. As human beings we are multi-faceted and complex; restoring equilibrium occurs on multiple levels. Her judicious application of pressure releases muscle tension while allowing you to relax deeply and breathe. Her manner is calm and professional. Whether you like to talk during your massage or escape to your own inner retreat, you can be confident that the choice is always yours.
Since graduating Andrea has taken several courses including TMJ Dysfunction, Advanced Soft Tissue Manipulation of the Cervical Region, and Craniosacral Therapy. A long-time yoga practitioner with experience in Pilates and meditation, Andrea has exercises and stress-management tips to share with anyone interested in exploring these areas.
