Ava strongly believes in massage as a viable modality for enhancing overall health and well-being. As a Massage Therapist, she has made it her mission to share the significant impact massage has had on her own wellness from an early age. Massage was an ever-present facet of her childhood as means of comfort and care as well as for healing aches and pains. She seeks to have a similar impact on her clients, through listening to their needs, treating the acute and seeking the root of the imbalance, while also assisting in healing the whole person.
Ava’s practice is tailored to the individual with it’s primary focus on therapeutic and preventative care. Using a variety of techniques in Myofascial Release, Trigger Point Therapy as well as Deep-Tissue, Thai, Swedish, and Sports Massage, she helps bring balance and awareness to their bodies on and off the table. Ava is a proponent of massage whether clients seek to correct bad posture, treat chronic issues or new injuries, or simply to relax and unwind physically and emotionally.
It is the uniqueness of each experience that continues to inspire Ava to expand her practice. Dedicated to her work and community, she volunteers on the massage team for the AIDS Life Cycle. Ava graduated from the National Holistic Institute in 2011 and brings a commitment to her clients through bodywork to give people a safe and nurturing space to heal and learn the language of their own bodies.
