Working at our Downtown location in the Medical Dental Building, Sharon attended Brenneke School of Massage in Seattle, graduating & becoming licensed as a Massage Practitioner in 1990. Since then, she has accumulated continuing education training in such courses as Structural Integration, Palpation of the Belly, Anatomy Trains, Intrinsic Musculature of the Pelvis, and Advanced Massage Methods. In 2008 she began working for chiropractic clinics, helping to resolve injuries & reduce pain from tension patterns.
Further training has included introductory work in Cranio-Sacral Therapy, as well as Electro-Lymphatic Drainage. Both of these modalities inform the 'deep tissue' approach - proving that less can be more in assisting the relief of discomfort via an understanding of the body as primarily fluid.
Sharon came to massage in a quest to resolve her *own back tension, since she started out with significant spinal curvature which has substantially resolved.
Her approach to fascia undergoes continual refinements; it often incorporates movement in the form of interactive stretching on the part of the client.
