About Raffaella

I am a long time ultra runner and mountain biker - massage has helped me deal with countless injuries over the years.  I truly believe that massage and other holistic approaches to healing are so much better than the standard answer you will get from your doctor, "just take six weeks off and rest while you take these anti inflammatory drugs the entire time."  This does not fix anything - almost any injury will get better with that much time off.  But it will just happen again, over and over.  What most of us need are the tools to figure out why we are injured, and to be aware of the muscle imbalances that are causing the injury - while we work on those muscles actively with massage! 

Once I figured out that I could be the person helping others, it was a no brainer to start attending National Holistic Institute of Massage Therapy.  I am familiar with many chronic overuse injuries, mostly because I've had so many of them, and know how to help you deal with the imalances that cause them, while we actively work on the muscles and tissue issues with massage!  Together we can get you more aware of your body and keep you healthy for many many miles on the trails!
