In 2008, I had a spinal injury that required surgery. In the months to follow, I suffered from atrophy and spasms, losing the ability to stand on my toes and walking with a limp. After experiencing my first massage, I immediately regained more mobility. As I continued receiving massages, the spasms decreased, the pain subsided and I was able to walk normally again. This inspired me to go to massage school.
Since becoming licensed in 2015, I have owned my own practice, Spectrum Therapeutic Massage, and have been able to help hundreds of individuals suffering from chronic pain and dysfunction. My practice has been joined by my daughters, Sarah Kanz (Harmony Massage) and Lydia Kanz (Balance Massage). The three of us work together to insure that our clients are receiving the specific care they need.
In the past few years, I have developed my own style of massage which I have named Adagio Restoration Therapy, or ART Massage. It is a unique modality incorporating deep tissue, trigger point, myofascial and reiki/energy techniques with meditation. I chose this term “adagio” because this style of massage is like a dance between the therapist and the client’s tissues. It is not “working on” someone but rather “working with” the structures (muscle fibers, connective tissue, fascia) in a slow, deliberate and focused manner.
