Techniques














Enjoy Your Body ~ Relax Your Mind ~ Rejuvenate Your Spirit

Signature Massage
  
I tailor your massage to any of your specific requests or needs. Each session combines techniques from all over the world. This is an ideal treatment for overall well being.
 
Deep Tissue Massage and Trigger Point Therapy
 
Tension can often be found in the deeper levels of muscle tissue. These techniques focus on these specific points and facilitate their release. Deep tissue massage is a great way to relieve muscle tension, every day stress and can improve mood, promote circulation and overall health.

 
Asian Bodywork
  
A blend of Acupressure and Thai massage techniques promote healing and balance for the body, mind and spirit. These ancient forms of massage combine stretching with rhythmic compressions, encouraging energy flow, flexibility and ease of movement. Tension and toxic material is released from the joints, muscles and connective tissue. The effect of Asian bodywork and massage is uniquely relaxing as well as energizing.
 
Myofascial Release
 
This slow paced massage technique melts through layers of connective tissue (Fascia) and seeks to re-balance the body by releasing tension in the fascia, the tissue structure which lines and covers nearly everything inside and around our bodies. Long, stretching strokes are utilized to release muscular tension and holding patterns. This technique helps unwind our bodies from trauma and pain built up over the years and greatly improves range of motion. The effect is long-lasting. Pressure can range from light to deep.

Massage while living with cancer or any life threatening illness
 
Massage can bring peace for those living with a life altering illness. This is a soothing, comfort-oriented massage for people who have been diagnosed with a life threatening illness. Gentle and heart centered touch especially for the feet, hands and scalp can bring relief to some of the discomforts of chemotherapy or various disease related treatments. I offer massage at a minimal cost for those in financial need. I am also open to traveling to you if necessary. Please contact me directly for more information.
 
The Extras
 

Sometimes a full body session is not enough to tackle your areas of chronic pain, stress, or discomfort. Add a focused treatment for any area needing special attention (e.g., neck pain, shin splints, etc.) massage.
