Patrice Lightcap, LMT, AOBTA®-C.P.
With 20 years experience, Patrice Lightcap has honed her unique skill of “listening with the fingertips,” which has assisted her in helping you discover and unlock emotional and physical pain, as well as chronic tension.
The foundation of my work is the Asian Arts of Traditional Chinese Medicine, Guasha, Five Element Shiatsu and Jin Shin Do® Bodymind Acupressure®. Of the Western Element her therapies include Neuromuscular Massage and Myofascial Release and Unwinding, Geriatric Massage and Elder Care and recently added Oncology Massage Therapy. The integrating of bodywork allows me to design treatments specific to each of my clients working with children, adults and families, and now being able to serve people in active cancer treatment and recovery is a long held dream of mine. Long term illness, physical injury or emotional distress can result in muscle tension, chronic pain, anxiety and depression.
All of these particular bodywork modalities are oriented to healing the whole person as one system to balance and restore the natural flow of energy.
As a Licensed Massage Therapist and a Registered Jin Shin Do® Acupressurist, Patrice brings a special capacity to the healing process. She has spent the past 16 years integrating her work in close collaboration with physicians, nutritionists, and psychotherapists and family counselors with Building Bridges. The incorporation of touch therapy and psychotherapy as part of a holistic treatment approach to promoting personal well-being, can enhance the benefits of emotional healing while balancing the body and mind connection.
