Barefoot Training Specialist
The plantar fascia (bottom of the foot) is the only part of the body that touches the ground, therefore proper foot mechanics are important for posture, balance, and strength. Dysfunction in the feet can lead to many musculoskeletal issues, i.e. plantar fasciitis; low back, hip, knee, shoulder pain; and neck and jaw tension. From assessing foot posture and function, a treatment plan can be created to achieve optimal posture, balance, and strength. Request a gait assessment at your next session.

In her 15th year of practice Tara continues to be passionate about massage therapy. She continues to educate herself with current research and techniques for her clients' benefit. She communicates with the fascia and muscles to achieve tissue balance by using a wide range of modalities. These are Ashiatsu Barefoot Massage, Myofascial release, Fascial Stretch Therapy, lymphatic drainage, therapeutic ultrasound, Instrument Assisted Soft Tissue Mobilization (IASTM), trigger point and acupressure techniques. Tara also incorporates traditional Chinese medicine techniques such as acupuncture, Gua Sha and cupping therapy. By assessing the soft tissue she is able to treat the body as a whole and achieve balance.

Her journey as a Kinesiologist and Massage Therapist has given her a good understanding of what rehabilitation and pain management patients seek.
