Working in my second decade in the field of therapeutic massage, I have acquired an array of skills from various modalities that I may draw from to create your ideal session. Rates are based on the length of your session, regardless of the technique. Each visit will include time for a thorough assessment of your current needs and goals, and a treatment plan will be devised with your input. Here is a sample of some of the modalities that may be included:
This type of therapy is what many people are most familiar with as the basis for massage. The traditional Swedish form includes long gliding strokes, kneading, percussion, friction, and joint mobilizations; resulting in more range, ease, and quality of motion in the body, movement of fluids, and deep relaxation.
Although many consider myofascial massage to be "deep tissue", that is not always the case. This type of therapy is designed to address imbalance in the integrated connective tissue and musculature throughout the body. The stokes are firmer, slower, and more specific; resulting in improved structural alignment and functional mobility.
There are many different ways to address the body and mind in a therapeutic session. Energy balancing techniques typically consist of simple, still, hand holds in strategic locations both on and off the body. Although subtle in nature, the results can be a powerful shift in the autonomic nervous system resulting in deep relaxation, reduced anxiety, and lasting stress relief.
Designed to support the mother to be through all stages of pregnancy, this type of bodywork is wonderful for reducing stress, both mental and physical, on mother and baby. Depending on the stage of pregnancy and health of the mother, sessions will incorporate adjustments for any contraindications and may be performed in side-lying. Gentle strokes, stretches, and deep specific work brings a sense of peace and well-being to the mother as she prepares for the hard work of labor.
This style of bodywork is a type of pressure point massage that focuses on specific points on the feet, hands, and head to encourage vitality in the organ systems, decrease pain, and improve circulation. It's also incredibly relaxing.
The ancient practice of "taking the waters" can be included in your session in a variety of ways. Warm stones, hot compresses, ice packs, and even aromatherapy may be indicated or requested to make your session truly spectacular!
