While Swedish Massage is a very relaxing modality, it certainly has therapeutic benefits. Swedish uses an array of strokes to improve circulation and relax muscles. 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.
This modality is effective for those who desire a lighter touch and pressure such as Seniors, children, chemo patients, post surgical patients (with Dr. approval).
Deep Tissue Massage
Deep Tissue Massage is a form of bodywork that aims to relieve tension in the deeper layers of muscles. Deep Tissue Massage is an highly effective method for releasing chronic stress areas due to misalignment, repetitive motions, and past lingering injuries. Due to the nature of the deep tissue work, open communication during the session is crucial to insure working within one's pain tolerance. Keep in mind that soreness is pretty common after treatment. Hydration, heat/cold packs, epsom salt baths and gentle stretching may reduce soreness.
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.
Reiki is a Japanese form of energy work that cleanses and balances the energy system in the body. As a result, the body's natural self-healing mechanisms strengthen, helping to establish optimum health. During a session, I work directly with your energy field to assist your self-healing. Reiki utilizes a gentle laying on of hands to conduct the necessary energy force between us. The benefits of Reiki range from the release of habitual mental/emotional stress to alleviating chronic pain.
Deep Tissue Warm Bamboo Massage
Warmed bamboo tools are used to loosen fascial restrictions that help keep muscles tight. Heat along with varying degrees of pressure are effective in softening muscle tissue which allows for deeper work without discomfort.
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.
Deep heat penetrates muscle and joints to improve flexibility and increase range of motion. Paraffin ThermoTherapy reduces pain and muscle stiffness associated with arthritis, muscle and joint injuries and contractures.
This treatment is highly effective in reducing the pain and stiffness associated with Osteo and Rheumatoid Arthritis, Plantar Fasciitis, Tendonitis, Tennis Elbow.
A 24 hour advanced notice is required.
Dry Brush Exfoliation Massage
Dry brush massage is a modality that stimulates the skin and promotes detoxification. This modality removes dead skin cells, stimulates the nerve endings and lymphatic system to encourage the body's natural healing and cleansing processes.
Your session begins with gentle dry brush exfoliation followed by a warm oil massage with (or without) an essential oil of your choice. Moist, hot towels to cleanse the skin completes the service. You may keep the dry brush for future sessions.
Dry brush massage will not be performed on skin that has a rash, infection, cut or wound. Brushing over skin irritations, cuts or wounds can interfere with healing and promote spreading of rashes and infections.
Release Relax Restore Massage
This 2 hour session (approximate time) combines three specific modalities that work toward deeply relaxing and restoring the body. While you're fully clothed, a series of Thai Massage inspired stretches are used to release tension in the muscles and joints of the body. CranioSacral Therapy techniques will relax the Central Nervous System preparing you for restorative massage. Your session concludes with 30 to 45 minutes of Swedish massage.
Please wear loose fitting clothes for stretching and CranioSacral sessions.
Optional Warm Bamboo for an additional $10.
Lomilomi Hawaiian Massage
Aloha! Lomilomi is the Hawaiian word for "shift", and it is part of a larger native Hawaiian tradition of healing and natural body care. According to Hawaiian tradition, all living beings are seeking a state of balance and love in the world. During a Lomilomi session we focus on relaxing your body through gentle, flowing movements; reviving your spirit and filling your body with restorative energy. When the body is relaxed, deeper muscle work can be achieved.
Optional Warm Bamboo for an additional $10.
