Signature Therapeutic Massage
A full body massage combined with a blend of various techniques to create an integrative massage that meets the needs of the client at that particular time. This is a great one to start out with. Together we will use our intuitions to find the best modality that you enjoy most.
The most commonly offered and best-known type of massage, this therapy uses firm but gentle pressure to promote relaxation, ease muscle tension and create other health benefits.
This says it all - it is intended to help you relax. Lots of gentle to medium pressure effleurage (long, flower) strokes are used. Perfect for someone who just wants to unwind.
Body Memory Recall
*(90 minutes, $140.00) Body Memory Recall (BMR) is innovative therapeutic bodywork that supports the release of body memory. As a BMR therapist I sensitively apply gentle pressure and stretch that is gradually increased over time as the body relaxes and releases. In addition to the rhythmic movements used in traditional massage, BMR incorporates sustained pressure and stretch to guarded and restricted regions of the body for three to five minutes, sometimes longer which is often necessary for a complete release of protective tension, body armor, and suppressed body memory to occur. BMR is transformative, therapeutic bodywork that combines multiple techniques into one comprehensive approach that supports the body to release habitual protective tensions, body armor and suppressed memory (including emotion) from past experiences.
Healing Touch / Reiki
While you are fully clothed on the table (or in a chair), I perform energy work. It is extremely relaxing and is perfect for the person who does not like friction on the skin.
Chakra Massage and Balancing
Chakra balancing is based on the belief that the body has seven main energy centers along the spine which absorb and emit life force. These energy centers are referred to as chakras. Thru massage and energy work I assist you in becoming more balanced and in tune with your life force, thus relieving any energy blockages you may have.
Seniors have special needs. Their skin is more delicate and so are their muscles. In addition, many have osteoporosis and other medical concerns that call for a gentle touch. Also, special attention is given to assisting with getting on and off the table as well as speaking up to address hearing difficulties.
A blend of gliding, kneading, passive stretching, compression, and deep tissue work to ease muscle soreness, return muscles to their normal resting length, and increase flexibility, thereby maximizing your workout. This is beneficial before and after sporting events as well as during training. Whether you are a prop or a weekend warrior, it is important to use this method to prevent injury as well as to improve your competitive edge.
To some it is just wonderful hand and foot relaxation, which is fine. In ancient history it was said that by pressing on certain points in the hands and feet, one could improve the functions of the organs that correspond to these points. The same is applied today.
Myofascial release is a form of soft tissue therapy used to treat somatic dysfunction and accompanying pain and restriction of motion. This is accomplished by relaxing contracted muscles, increasing circulation, increasing venous and lymphatic drainage, and stimulating the stretch reflex of muscles and overlying fascia.
While you are face up, I uses specific hand placements held for 5 minutes each to bring about deep relaxation, relieve headaches, pain from TMJ, and low back pain.
Prenatal and Postpartum Massage
This massage is perfect to help relieve the sore muscles and fatigue that are experienced during and after pregnancy. The skin is nourished with a specially formulated body butter that helps rebuild collagen and connective tissue to help skin have a better chance of stretching without marks. This service is available after the completion of the 1st trimester. Must provide a signed release from your OB/GYN. (Onsite treatments available for additional $25.00, call for details)
I show you a gentle and loving baby massage that has many benefits for both parents and infant. The relationship between a parent and baby is enhanced and strengthened through the nurturing touch of infant massage. Parent’s often find that their baby sleeps better, fusses less, and gains more weight, when massaged regularly.
