My treatments are heavily influenced by Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM), Shiatsu, Acupressure and Deep Tissue. While relaxation is an important part of my treatments, I am more focused on recalibrating to help unwind tension and restore balance to your mind, body, and spirit.
Each Therapeutic treatment is completely customized using a blend of some or all the modalities listed below to meet your specific needs to help promote deep relaxation and rejuvenation.
Traditional Chinese Medicine
Vibrational Sound Therapy
Trigger Point Therapy
Cranial Sacral Therapy
Just one massage can help with:
- Chronic or Acute Pain Relief
- Stress Management
- Better Sleep
- Increased Joint Mobility
- Benefits of massage are cumulative. Therefore regular scheduled massage can give you long term pain and stress relief, and help you manage life.
A customized therapeutic massage may include some or all the following techniques:
- Swedish massage is the baseline massage technique used in most massage sessions. It consists of long flowing strokes called effluerage, some petrissage (kneading,), and sometimes tapotement (tapping or light percussion.) The overall objective of Swedish is to relax and soften tissue.
- Trigger Point Therapy: this bodywork technique involves the applying of pressure to tender muscle tissue in order to relieve pain and dysfunction in other parts of the body. Sometimes massage and trigger point therapy are performed together.
- Deep tissue massage is used to alleviate tension and soreness in the deeper muscle layer. For some this modality can be too intense if it is not done correctly. Superficial muscle tissue needs to be softened first before the layers underneath can be addressed.
- Shiatsu, Acupressure, and Reflexology : Applied pressure is used along the meridians to unblock energy congestion which increases blood flow to the area and the flow of qi. The intention is to calm the sympathetic nervous system and tonify the parasympathetic. The calmness of the parasympathetic nervous system is associated with the Traditional Chinese Medicine concept of Yin (silent, still, slow, cool, dark, receptive, solid organs, and the metaphor of water), while Yang is its polar opposite (loud, active, fast, hot, bright, expressive, hollow organs, and the metaphor for fire). The root of all disease is believed to be hidden deep within the Yin. Pressure may be applied with the pads of the thumbs or fingers, with the knuckles, palms, and the heels of the hands, elbows, forearms, knees, or feet. In the case of reflexology, the energy points that I work are on the feet. These techniques help the body release tension, calm the nerves, boost immunity and help promote healing.
