Massage is a tool to help heal. Whether it's stress, illness or simply to pamper yourself, the benefits of massage can be life changing. I would be honored to take that journey with you.
Pamela Meyers graduated from the Brian Utting School of Massage in 1993 and opened the Mapleleaf Healing Arts Clinic in Seattle.
Pamela's practice focused on healing and treatment massage, helping people recover from injuries and accidents. Pamela also focused on creating a space and time for clients to relax and rejuvenate, a respite from their busy lives.
Pamela has extensive experience teaching massage in Minneapolis, Minnesota, at CenterPoint School for Massage and Shiatsu, at Renton Technical College and Bellevue Massage School. This experience has helped Pamela to keep current with the lastest developments.
Pamela is a life time leaner and actively pursues knowledge to create greater healing for her clients. As one client up it; "I'm on a quest for anatomical symmetry."
The human body is symmetrical from side to side, however most of us use our body differently from side to side. Most of us have a dominant side that we use for specific tasks. For example, we write with one side, and we use only one leg for each driving function. Almost all sports employ the dominant side of the body. The human body is an amazing creation that is designed to function with imbalances, but when the body gets too far out of balance, the result can be painful. Pamela's primary focus is on re-balancing your body. First, she analyzes the bony framework, looking at the possible larger deviations of your body from front to back and side to side, looking at the height of your hips, any side bends or rotation of your spine. Then she determines whether you have forward head or shoulder posture. Finally, she takes a closer look at the smaller curves of the spine. Any of these postural distortions can cause muscular discomfort and nerve pain.
