What I offer

What can you expect?

A typical session usually includes a combination of these techniques:

Deep Tissue:

This form of bodywork goes above and beyond your average therapeutic session. Using a combination of elbows, forearms, and knuckles, I work my way deep beneath the superfiscial layers of the muscle, allowing fresh blood and oxygen to flow through. This does  mean a more intense session, however massage should NEVER hurt. As with any other massage, communication is key to ensure that you are always comfortable. Keep in mind that soreness is pretty common after the treatment, and that you should drink plenty of water to aid with the flushing and removal of toxins that will have been released during the session. Deep Tissue Massage is a highly effective method for releasing chronic stress due to misalignment, repetitive motions, and past lingering injuries.

 

Trigger Point Therapy:

Do you ever try to massage your shoulders and run into those big lumps of tissue? Those are Trigger Points; tender areas of tension that occur in the belly of the muscle. These Trigger Points or "knots" are built up throughout a person's life due to physical, mental, and/or emotional stress. During the session, I use my thumbs and elbows to focus pressure on these areas. You may expect to feel some pain, but most clients refer to it as a "good pain". The effects of this technique can be long-lasting and profoundly transformative.Again, communication is key to ensure that I do not exceed your pain threshhold.

 

Swedish:

Swedish Massage is a very relaxing and therapeutic style of bodywork. It combines oils or lotion with an array of strokes such as rolling, kneading, and percussion to help the body improve its circulation. The benefits of this type of bodywork are wide-ranging and include relief from aches and pains, decreased stress levels in the body, enhanced mental clarity, improved appearance, and greater flexibility.

 

Pressure Point Therapy:

Your body stores stress in specific areas called pressure points. Pressure points are small painful pockets of energy that are located along a nerve pathway in your body. These pressure points actually block the nerve energy from flowing through your body, causing a variety of discomforts and illnesses. In our session, I apply pressure to these specific points and dissolve them, releasing any blockages and restoring your nerve pathways to optimal health and function.

 


Pregnancy Massage

Pregnancy Massage is a style of bodywork designed specifically for pregnant women. Pregnancy is a time when a woman's body endures tremendous stress due to dramatic physical and emotional changes. Using various techniques specially developed for the expecting mother, Pregnancy Massage helps release the pain and discomfort experienced throughout pregnancy. The benefits are profound, including emotional support, the relief of joint pain due to extra weight and postural imbalance, and improved breathing and relaxation.


Geriatric Massage

Geriatric massage is a form of massage designed to meet the specific needs of the elderly. It helps to improve blood circulation, relieve pain, and also increase range of motion. If you are elderly, geriatric massage can help you maintain and improve your overall health, as well as regain certain physical functions that have been reduced due to aging. In addition, since the elderly don't typically receive enough physical touch, this massage can also help alleviate symptoms of loneliness or depression.
