Diane Smith

Diane, a certified massage therapist, has worked with Dr. Heather Shaw at Nova Chiropractic since 2000. Working in a clinical setting has allowed her to experience a variety of injuries and general health issues ranging from stress reduction to serious injuries.

Diane’s technique has evolved through working with her clients; helping them to recover from injuries that cause pain and muscle dysfunction. Specialties include repetitive stress injuries both work and sports related; chronic pain; and personal injuries (car accidents, slips, trips, falls, etc.) causing acute pain and decreased range of motion.

She also helps to improve overall health through massage by reducing stress and relaxing the body so healing and rejuvenation can occur.

Her education and knowledge in a variety of modalities allows her to individualize each clients experience to achieve better health.

Modalities include: Orthopedic Massage, Western Style Swedish, Sports Massage, Acupressure and Tui Na, CranioSacral and Lymphatic Drainage.
