Initially, Carolina worked in a spa setting after graduating from massage school, but soon felt that she was better suited to a clinic, where she could create treatment plans for her clients and track their progress. This transition was an important turning point in her career, and for the last six years, she has built a loyal clientele and developed many lifelong relationships with those she has helped. Working closely with other health-care practitioners such as chiropractors, naturopaths, acupuncturists, and osteopathic manual practitioners, she takes the opportunity to learn new assessment techniques and advanced treatment skills. Clients benefit from her referrals and consultations with other therapists, to ensure optimal treatment results.
Carolina is also a birth doula and member of the DONA International Association (this has helped her with prenatal massage treatments).
Carolina has ample experience in treating sports injuries such as achilles and ligament ruptures, herniated discs, rotator cuff tears, strains, motor vehicle accidents, nerve impingements, tension headaches, and much more. Even though the majority of her techniques are deep tissue and trigger-point based, her philosophy on treatments is to focus on the underlying stresses of everyday life by incorporating relaxation and breathing techniques. She also practices Swedish/deep-tissue massage, trigger-point therapy, prenatal massage, and aromatherapy.

Carolina has a positive outlook on life – the eternal optimist. You will often hear her laughing in the clinic halls: laughter is the best medicine. Her passion and first love is dance. Once in a while she will take a jazz class to scratch that itch! Travelling has also become a big part of her life, and she frequents Bermuda often where her sister lives with her husband and their adorable twins. Carolina speaks Spanish and English fluently.
