Angi earned a BS in Health and Fitness in Preventative and Rehabilitative Programs in 1998 and worked as a personal trainer and exercise physiologist for nine years. She focused on functional movement, post-surgical therapy for chronic pain, balance and stability. Angi uses Body Mapping to determine structural imbalances and tension patterns that feed these imbalances. Her clients ranged from high school athletes to 70 year olds with joint replacements.
In 2005 she received her massage therapist's license and has been practicing massage since then, focusing on structural rebalancing, integrative bodywork, and Body Mapping. She uses a combination of deep tissue, myofascial release, cupping and Gua Sha.
I appreciate Angi's grounded and effective approach to soft tissue work. Angi and I have similar ideas, techniques, and goals, and collaborate very effectively on acute and chronic pain, injury, and degenerative joint disease. We also share the belief that proactive work on muscles and joints can save patients from a tremendous amount of pain, restriction, and suffering.
"My decision to attend massage school occurred in 2004 while I was working as a personal trainer. I wanted to expand my skill set to further help my clients heal and create more ease in their bodies. My love for kinesiology and the desire to ease the suffering of the world made this decision an easy one. To this day, I am still in awe of the complexity of the human body and its ability to adapt.
I approach the body holistically. I look at structural imbalances and tension patterns that may be feeding these imbalances. It is not always the area of pain that needs the most work! Sometimes it is the tension patterns that create a 'weak link' in your physiology (or compensation patterns that develop following a trauma), that cause you to have pain at that location. Pulling from my 'toolbox', that includes both western and eastern modalities, intuitive listening and neuromuscular reeducation, we try to create a more balanced you. In my 17 years of experience of working with bodies, I find it is also just as important to listen and look at what the body is telling me than applying a certain technique for a certain condition.
I began seeing Dr Russ in 2013, as a patient, and immediately thought, “I would love to work with this guy”! I feel we have very compatible styles and approaches. I love the family atmosphere of the office and the camaraderie that Dr Russ and Brittany have with the patients that go far beyond polite office / patient banter. I could not be happier to be a part of Russ Family Chiropractic."
