In addition to the more traditional offerings such as Deep Tissue massage, Swedish massage and Relaxation massage, I offer specific techniques to enhance the opportunity for deep healing and recovery.

My goal is to listen to the needs and preferences of each client in order to craft an approach that best meets the needs of the individual. Before your appointment we will discuss any symptoms you are experiencing as well as your expectations for the session. If you are someone who struggles with chronic pain or ongoing conditions, we will take that time to discuss your long term goals for pain reduction or recovery.

Trigger Point Therapy

The act of applying various levels of pressure to a muscle knot until the discomfort is relieved and the muscle itself is released. The relaxed muscle can then be manually lengthened, and full range of motion restored with assisted stretching.

Myofascial Release

The manipulation of connective tissue to release chronic tension sustained through trauma, inflammation and posture. A modality meant to address immobility and pain by relaxing contracted muscles, encouraging circulation and stimulating the natural stretch reflex.

Vacuum Cupping

Cups are placed on the body to create suction, promoting the regeneration of capillaries, enhancing blood flow to areas of concern and drawing out toxins. The cups are moved over the skin using gliding, shaking, popping and rotating techniques while gently pulling up on the cup in order to facilitate joint mobilization or soft tissue release. Cupping also triggers the parasympathetic nervous system, relaxing the body and mind.

Tool Assisted Myofascial Release

A technique related to the ancient practice of Gua Sha, a stainless steel instrument is used to gently break up scar tissue and adhesions in order to improve mobility, decrease pain and stiffness and to increase range of motion in joints. This technique is best suited to issues related to post-surgical or traumatic scarring, tendinopathies, and issues like plantar fasciitis, tennis or golfers elbow and IT band syndrome.

Craniosacral Therapy

A gentle touch is used to relieve compression in the bones of the head, neck, back and sacrum, and to restore and normalize the flow of cerebrospinal fluid in the central nervous system.

Sinus Massage

Gentle pressure from the fingers applied to the sinuses to aid in the drainage of congestion and buildup associated with headaches, tenderness of the face and sinus pressure.

Active Release Techniques

Pressure is applied to an area affected by repetitive strain while the associated joint is gently moved through its range of motion. This process reminds the body of its full capacity for movement, releases restriction and restores length to all muscles surrounding the affected joint.

Corrective Exercise

Assessments to help uncover compensation patterns allow the practitioner to identify weak or overactive muscles. Stretches or strength building exercises can be given to alleviate pain and discomfort from posture irregularities and muscle imbalance.

Flexible sessions

Choose from 60, 90, and 120 minute sessions with multiple therapies in a single session.
