Customized Therapeutic Massage
A variety of muscle soothing classic relaxation and deep tissue therapy techniques are used with customized deep or moderate pressure. Focus is on deep relaxation and general tension relief.
Shoulder Mobilization Treatment
Utilizes traditional therapeutic massage and advanced deep tissue therapy/ neuromuscular re-education techniques to effectively improve mobility in those with moderate to advanced limitation with movement and range of motion of the shoulder region. Pure focus is on the rotator cuff, pectoral girdle affecting the shoulder, AC joint, glenohumeral “shoulder” joint and adhered scapular mobilizing musculature /connective tissues to release fixation of affected ligamentous and bony structures. Perfect for those wanting specific all natural (less side effects) work on targeted areas of stubborn "knotted up" tension, limited movement, strength and dysfunction before considering other less invasive interventions which can be long in recovery and painful in nature. A follow up session with a lesser duration of 75 minutes may be recommended along with suggested stretching and a referral for prescribed strengthening exercise regimen to enhance bodywork results for optimal scapular mobilization and a pain free life!
Oncology Massage is a special type of massage developed specifically for cancer patients. Cancer patients have unique needs which must be addressed to make sure that a massage is beneficial to their health. I focus my attention on creating a gentle, nurturing environment for you to relax into.
Hot Stone Therapy
Hot Stone Therapy is a style of massage where heated stones are placed at specific sites on your body to deepen relaxation and promote circulation in your muscles. Muscles that are heated with these stones release tension and stress much more deeply and quickly than with a traditional massage. Pressure ranges from light to moderate.
Sports Massage is a type of massage designed for highly active people who engage in athletics. Engaging in sports is harsh on the body and can often lead to injuries in both the short and long term. Sports Massage enhances performance and prolongs a sports career by helping to prevent injury, reduce pains and swelling in the body, relax the mind, increase flexibility, and dramatically improve recovery rates. Includes deep tissue therapies and passive/active stretching to lengthen and muscular re-education.
CranioSacral Therapy is a gentle yet powerful technique that is effective in releasing neck pain, back pain, and mental stress (among other things). It does this by optimizing the movement of cerebrospinal fluid through the spine and around the skull. Developed by physician William Sutherland, this therapy provides a very soothing and relaxing healing experience.
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.
Lymphatic Drainage Therapy aims to gently and rhythmically move the lymph through the body, especially swollen areas of the body, relieving pressure and enhancing the functioning of the immune system. As both a preventative and remedial technique, LD can be used for a wide range of purposes including faster recovery from injury, reduction of swelling and discomfort from pregnancy, and strengthened resistance to illness. Perfect for those with post operative lymphedema (mild) often related to lymph node removal/partial/full mastectomy surgery as indicated by a clinician.
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 treatments have been found to be highly effective for conditions such as allergies, headaches, and depression. Perfect non-invasive and natural therapy for neurovascular and neuropathy related problems often related with chemotherapy cancer treatment when indicated by a clinician.
