Dóchas Clinical Massage Therapy
Hope for a Healthier Future
About Corinne D. Bracko-Douglas, CMT, LMT, CKTP
I have been practicing clinical massage therapy since August of 2004. My initial phase of training took place at The Soma Institute, in Chicago, Illinois. While training at Soma, I was blessed with the opportunity to experience several internships, two of which made a huge impact on me. My first internship took place at Rush University Medical Center in the oncology department, where I worked closely with staff members to bring massage to the lives of patients undergoing chemotherapy. This internship was a fantastic experience in that it allowed me to work with a wide spectrum of clients in varying stages of health. I enjoyed a second internship with the Kane County Cougars, a AAA baseball team in Geneva, Illinois. It was here that I was able to gain an extensive knowledge of shoulder anatomy and kinesiology by working one on one with pitchers. To this day, shoulders are still one of my favorite joints to study, followed closely by the acetabularfemoral joint due to its similar structure.
Since graduating, I have had continuing education in advanced sports massage, scraping technique (similar to Graston Technique), Thai massage, prenatal massage, Chinese Cupping therapy, aromatherapy. After completing three seminars in Kinesio Taping, I have received my certification as a Certified Kinesio Taping Practitioner. One of the best things about being a therapist is that even though my initial training has been completed, I am still able to grow and learn with my profession as scientific research provides us with more in depth information on how the human body works.
When I'm not working as a therapist, I enjoy hiking, long distance running, weight training, and spending time with my husband and our dogs, Koda and Shadow. I am also on the board of a non-profit animal shelter, Tarzan's Safe Haven, based out of the Chicagoland area that helps pets find the best possible home.
