In 1993 I graduated from a year long 1,150 hour Neuromuscular Therapy course at The Stress Massage Institute in Manitou Springs, Colorado - specializing in Myofascial Pain & Dysfunction as presented by Dr. Janet Travell. Dr. Travell was President Kennedys White House physician. Dr. Travells 2 comprehensive "Myofasial Pain & Dysfunction" books were the focus of my initial year long full time course in Neuromuscular Therapy. I'm so grateful to have learned so much, so early, and to have had the opportunity to help so many people feel better, or even better, to be pain free!
Bouvier Massage began on Cape Cod in 1997 providing only in home massages. Now, I'm glad & very grateful to welcome clients at my office on beautiful Barnstable Harbor, next to Matakeese Wharf.
My continued education training has included Advanced Neuromuscular & Trigger Point Therapy, Craniosacral Therapy, Neural Manipulations, Acupressure, Reflexology, Fire-Cupping, Contemporary Cupping, Medi-Cupping, Lymphatic Drainage, Reflexology, Pre/Post Natal Massage & Hot Stone Massage.
In 2018, I certified in Full Body Active Release Techniques (ART). This is now the "gold standard of care" for cumulative injury disorders for athletes (olympic, professional & amateur), as well as for people who just work hard, or have chronic pain from injury or overuse. ART is currently the only patented form of soft tissue release available. *Please visit the "Active Release" page for more info on ART & how it can relieve or significantly reduce pain from cumulative injury disorders - usually in 1-4 sessions. Note that many of the conditions I am trained to treat are soft tissue injuries that do not often appear on an x-ray or MRI.
In 2019, I certified in Active Myofascial Release Techniques. Yes, similar to Active Release Techniques, yet incorporating functional movement into treatments with great results, fast!
It's always is my goal always to continue to advance my skills and in turn provide the best therapy for each client.
I very much look forward to welcoming you to my office, working with you & helping you with your wellness goals. Thank you!
