A note about my services...
I typically use a blend of modalities in the services I offer, tailored to your specific needs. For example, if you are receiving a session to help alleviate neck or shoulder pain, you may benefit from a blend of Swedish, Deep Tissue, Orthopedic, Trigger Point and Lymphatic Drainage techniques, or others. My goal is to use those techniques that work best for you.
Payment is by cash or check at time of service.
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.
Deep Tissue Massage
Deep Tissue Massage is a form of bodywork that aims to relieve tension in the deeper layers of tissue in the body. Deep Tissue Massage is a highly effective method for releasing chronic stress areas due to misalignment, repetitive motions, and past lingering injuries. Keep in mind that mild soreness may occur after the session, and that plenty of water should be ingested to aid with the flushing and removal of toxins that will have been released from the deep tissue during the work.
Orthopedic massage is a style of massage therapy focused on treating painful conditions that affect the soft tissues of the body. Because orthopedic massage is designed for medical conditions, it requires extensive training. It involves releasing tense muscles, helping to stretch and lengthen tight muscles and tendons, and decompress rigid joints. My goal is to help restore full health to the soft tissues of your body, both treating your specific conditions as well as improving your overall well-being.
Lymphatic Drainage Therapy is a gentle hands-on technique designed to attain and sustain proper function of the lymphatic system, essential to our body's ability to detoxify and regenerate tissues. As both a preventative and remedial technique, LD can be used for a wide range of purposes and is expecially helpful for those recovering from injury or surgery, trauma, substantial swelling, stress and age-related issues.
Trigger Point Therapy
Trigger Point Therapy is a style of bodywork that focuses on stimulating and releasing "trigger points" in your body. Trigger points are tender areas of tension similar to acupressure points, except they occur in the belly of the muscle rather than along the energy pathways of the body. These "knots" are built up throughout a person's life due to physical, mental, and/or emotional stress. During a session, focused pressure is applied through a variety of techniques order to release your trigger points.
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 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.
Reflexology is a type of bodywork that focuses on applying pressure to the specific nerve zones in your feet. Unlike other foot massages that intend to mostly relieve tension in the feet themselves, reflexology is a far more in-depth science that aims to harmonize your entire body. According to reflexology, every part of the human body is mapped into your feet. Reflexology has been found to be highly effective for conditions such as allergies, headaches and depression.
Business Chair Massage
Chair massage is a popular way to provide a wellness service to you and your staff... as either a special "Thank You", or as an on-going service for relieving stress and releasing tension right in your workplace.
A specialized ergonomic massage chair is brought to your location, providing ease of access to all your employees. Chair massage sessions (typically 15 minutes) are shorter in length than traditional massage, making it convenient enough to fit into the busy schedule of a workplace.
Two hour minimum requested for on-site chair massage.
