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. Due to the nature of the deep tissue work, a focus on breathing and open communication during the session is crucial to make sure you don't get too uncomfortable. Keep in mind that soreness is pretty common after the treatment, 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 session. Apply ice packs to sore areas to reduce inflammation.
My Deep Tissue Massage is a customized combination of Trigger Point Therapy, Myofascial Release and Neuromuscular Therapy designed to deliver the optimal massage for you. I recommend scheduling at least 90 minutes if you would like to try to work on the entire body in one session because the deeper the massage, the slower the bodywork.
A massage tailored to your specific needs encompassing all the massage therapy modalities that I offer, or that you specify.
Swedish Massage is a very relaxing and therapeutic style of bodywork. Swedish massage is an excellent choice for someone's first massage or someone who wants a gentler massage compared to Deep Tissue Massage. The benefits of this type of bodywork are wide-ranging and include reduction of aches and pains, improved circulation, decreased stress levels in the body, enhanced mental clarity, improved appearance, improved flexibility, reduced insomnia episodes, immune system boost, and improved muscle tone.
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. Sports Massage is also highly effective in aiding the rapid recovery of an athlete from an injury by encouraging greater kinesthetic awareness and in turn promoting the body's natural immune function.
Pregnancy massage is given during the second and third trimesters.
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.
Foot Reflexology is a type of bodywork that focuses on applying pressure to the specific reflex points in your feet to harmonize your entire body. According to Foot Reflexology, every muscle, tissue and organ in the human body has a reflex point in your feet. The belief is that by stimulating these points, you aid in normalizing the function of the corresponding muscle, tissue or organ. Foot Reflexology is a wonderful service on its own or added to any duration of massage.
Hand & Foot Reflexology
Hand & Foot Reflexology is a type of bodywork that focuses on applying pressure to the specific reflex points in your feet & hands to harmonize your entire body. According to reflexology, every muscle, tissue and organ in the human body has a reflex point in your feet & hands. The belief is that by stimulating these points, you aid in normalizing the function of the corresponding muscle, tissue or organ. Hand & Foot Reflexology is a wonderful service on its own or added to any duration of massage.
Add On Hot Stones
Add a dozen hot stones to any massage to be used on several areas of your choice. Great opportunity to try hot stones for the first time, or as an alternative to the 90 minute Hot Stone Massage where they are used head to toe. If you would like to add hot stones to your massage just leave me a message in the box provided when you schedule your massage.
I personally blend pure essential oils into massage lotion for a truly therapeutic benefit. Aromatherapy is not only something that you smell, but is absorbed into the body to enhance and aide in the positive results of your massage. Aromatherapy essential oils remain in the body and continue to work 2-4 days after massage.
