Treatments

 
Swedish Massage

Swedish Massage is the manipulation of superficial and deeper layers of muscle and connective tissue using various techniques to improve circulation, enhance function, aid in the healing process, to soothe and relax the tissues

 

Deep Tissue Massage

Deep Tissue Massage is similar to Swedish, but is more focused as I incorporate varying techniques to work progressively deeper through the layers of muscle to get to the root source of dysfunction within the tissue to release knots and blockages

 
Percussive Massage
Here I use a variety of percussive techniques to loosen up the muscles and promote blood flow to the tissue.   Using these techniques can be deeply soothing, relaxing, as well as invigorating.  The other benefit is that it prepares the tissues to allow me to work more deeply. 
 
Myofascial Stretching
Once the tissues are warmed up, if desired, I will use various techniques to gently position the body into positions to get a good stretch of the muscle and surrounding connective tissue.  This will aid in function and often provides immense relief
 
Sports Massage

Sports Masage was originally developed to help athletes prepare their bodies for optimal performance, recover after a big event, or function well during training. Using mostly a technique called tapotement (various percussive techniques) sports massage emphasizes prevention and healing of injuries to the muscles and tendons, focusing on specific target areas.  Sports massage is also good for people with injuries, chronic pain or restricted range of motion

 

Pregnancy Massage

Pregnancy Massage: Improving circulation and enhancing relaxation for both the mother and baby, focusing on relieving specific target areas common to women during pregnancy

 

Therapeutic Touch

Therapeutic Touch is an energy modality that works with the energy field of the client, removing energetic blockages to clear the way for the body to heal itself

 
Relaxing Massage
Similar to Swedish Massage, but the focus is not so much on relieving muscle knots and tension.  Using gentler, smoother, longer and slower techniques the focus is on deep relaxation
