How would you like to enjoy the quality of a clinical massage in the comfort of your own home?
I approach my work from a holistic perspective. I see each patient as a whole person, not merely a collection of symptoms. I am not a healer. I am a helper. I facilitate health by educating my clients on how to prevent disease and guiding them back to a healthy path when they have strayed. I encourage them to aspire for something more than just "not sick", to pursue a robustly healthy life. I try to always be honest, to strive for humility by recognizing my own limitations, and to be responsible and respectful in my recommendations.
I offer 3 basic types of massage—Thai, Acupressure & Detox—to accommodate any need.
I am credentialed with the following insurance companies: Premera, Aetna, First Choice.
I also take L&I and auto injury cases.
*Currently, I am only taking new insurance cases at my Capitol Hill location: BackfireChiropractic.com
