Valerie is new to Rody Chiropractic, but has been a massage therapist in a Chiropractic setting since October 2010. Her passion lies in helping others, so she finds treatment work deeply rewarding. Her massage style is based around the belief that every body is different. Valerie believes that focusing on each individual’s physiological needs and goals, results in the greatest client benefit. Whether an individual’s goals include increasing range of motion, reducing aches, pain and inflammation, or simply relaxation, Valerie possesses the knowledge and skill to perform a blend of Swedish, Myofascial Release, Deep Tissue, Stretching and varied other techniques to yield results. Through her many years of experience she has an understanding of how well Chiropractic and Massage work together, and engages in a multifaceted approach to healing and recovery. Valerie highly encourages home self-care routines, including hot & cold packs, increasing water intake, and doing specific stretches, to patients between and after visits to achieve and maintain wellness.
