Lynne – LMT
Discovering the many ways that massage therapy can help her clients to heal has been an exciting journey! Lynne has been working with Dr. Byrne since 2015, and the best park of her job has been watching her clients emerge from a place of pain and limitation to freedom and possibility! She enjoys using Swedish massage, myofascial release and manual lymphatic drainage to improve her clients quality of life. Prior to becoming licensed as a massage therapist she practiced for ten years as an occupational therapist, so working with clients to incorporate strategies into their daily lives which will help them to remain pain free is a hallmark of her practice.
