Adrian Ward, Licensed Massage Therapist, #527, has been practicing massage over 20 years. Her journey began at Florida College of Natural Health in Orlando, Florida, but continues to this day with hundreds of training hours of various forms including extensive training in Lymph Drainage Therapy, CranioSacral Therapy, Ortho-Bionomy® and Pregnancy Massage. Adrian has practiced massage in multiple settings from education, medical to private settings.
Today, I'm most passionate about using my skills to help relieve pain and discomfort associated with edema / lymphedema, particularly pre - / post surgical interventions. It's amazing to see the results and the relief from applying Lymph Drainage Therapy to a person recovering from knee / hip replacement or plastic / cosmetic surgery. The work is gentle yet very effective. Planning to start having mini classes to address Lymphatic self care for those anticipating surgery. Look for that coming soon.
I'm also passionate about Workplace Wellness, On-site services provided at local Businesses, where I provide short targeted sessions addressing issues associated with work related physical and mental stress. Look forward to these opportunities possibly popping up in an office near you.
The longer I have practiced I have learned that while continuing to enhance my skills through education and training is important, I have realized that people simply need the caring touch of a skilled therapist - one that knows how to quiet the body and mind through one simple touch.
