My Philosophy … Focused. Grounded. Balanced.
Blessed is the man whose delight is in the law of the LORD. He is like a tree planted by streams of water; which yields its fruit in season. Whatever he does prospers. ~ Psalms 1:1-3
At Collective Balance, Denise doesn’t just massage you and send you on your merry way. She helps you to understand WHY your body feels the way it feels. She offers guidance, education, and resources and has found that by combining neurologically-based manual therapy with wholesome nutrition, mineral supplementation, consistent movement, and positive mindfulness, we can collectively bring balance to our bodies. Denise offers a hands-on approach through orthopedic massage techniques by circulating a fresh supply of blood and oxygen to repair and restore soft tissue within the muscles, fascia, and joints, thereby increasing flexibility and range of motion.
At Collective Balance, Denise has worked with hundreds of clients who experience the following conditions and symptoms:
- Dysfunction of Neck, Shoulders, Hips, Knees, Feet
- Pain, Numbness, Tingling
- Limited Range of Motion
- Headaches / TMJ
- Frozen Shoulder / Rotator Cuff / Shoulder Impingement
- Carpal Tunnel / Trigger Fingers
- Sciatica / Sacral Iliac Joint
- Plantar Fasciaitis
Denise incorporates a combination of techniques into each personalized session based on what she FEELS the body needs that day. Techniques include Swedish, Deep Tissue, Myofascial, Muscle Release, Integrated Manual Therapy, Orthopedic Massage, Active Isolated Stretching, Myoskeletal Alignment Technique, and PhysioKinetix Training. Throughout the session, clients are encouraged to provide verbal feedback and actively participate in the techniques, both of which aid in awakening the mind-body connection. Denise has developed a strong intuition in LISTENING to the client’s body to determine which techniques will be most effective for that session. Afterward, Denise and the client discuss changes that occurred during the session; recommend stretches, postural awareness, or other lifestyle changes; then determine a plan for future sessions.
