As a former college volleyball player, Whitney’s approach to massage therapy is one that incorporates soft tissue therapies with the science of movement. Her interest in massage began as an athlete plagued with overuse injuries. Her desire to find an additional recovery tool beyond that of the ice whirlpool and anti-inflammatories led her to a massage therapist. With an innate desire to help people in a one-on-one setting, she herself pursued massage training in Washington, DC after college. She soon found that the lifestyles of many weekend warriors (herself included) demanded extensive recovery and injury rehabilitation. She believes the study of the human body, both from a movement and behavior standpoint, is endless. Each experience brings with it a learning opportunity to expand upon her ability to help others through massage. When not working, Whitney is playing sports. Whether working on her strength with a barbell or playing sand doubles volleyball, she lives an active lifestyle.
