This is also a great therapy to increase circulation and boost the immune system.
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, 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.
Reiki is a Japanese form of energy work that channels universal life force energy to cleanse and balance the energy system (chakras) in the body. As a result, the body's natural self-healing mechanisms strengthen, helping to establish optimum health. During a session I will gently lay my hands on our above your clothed body and work with your energy bodies to remove blockages, detoxify your system, and restore your vital life force energy.
The benefits of Reiki are vast, some of the most frequent uses are to release habitual mental/emotional stress and anxiety, alleviate chronic pain, work through challenging life events, system detoxification, PTSD and insomnia. It is an incredibly relaxing therapy that allows the recipient to enter into a deep state of healing.
During this session I will guide you through a combination of sound, voice, breath, and visualization to assist you in attaining deep states of relaxation, self discovery, clearing, balancing, and a wide variety of other things I can discuss with you on a case by case basis. Meditation can help to reduce stress, depression and anxiety, balance emotional distress, address feelings of anger and frustration, process the side affects of trama, lower blood pressure, and improve ones general state of physical, mental and emotional health and well being. Many different forms of guided meditation are available, if you are interested in learning more please contact me with questions.
CranioSacral Therapy is a gentle yet powerful technique that is effective in reducing the severity and frequency of migraines and headaches, along with releasing neck pain, back pain, and mental stress ,it can treat the symptoms of TMJ, menopause, autism and ADHD, it can also help alleviate the side affects ofvarious traumas. This technique is applied through very gentle touch because it works with some of the most subtle structures in the body. It does this by optimizing the movement of cerebrospinal fluid through the spine and around the skull. Developed in the 1970's by physician William Sutherland, this therapy provides a very soothing and relaxing experience with the ability to provide very deep and lasting healing.

Myofascial massage is a technique used to treat injuries and discomfort, reducing pain and increasing range of motion. Myofascial massage differs from other types of massage in that it targets the fascia - the membrane surrounding muscles - rather than the muscle itself. Since fascia completely encases every muscle in the body, imbalances in the fascia can have serious effects on your range of motion and comfort level. While other forms of massage can overlook the fascia, myofascial massage focuses specifically on releasing tension in this important membrane.
Trigger Point Therapy
Trigger Point Therapy is a style of bodywork that focuses on stimulating and releasing "trigger points" in your body. Trigger points are tender areas of tension similar to acupressure points, except they occur in the belly of the muscle rather than along the energy pathways of the body. These "knots" are built up throughout a person's life due to physical, mental, and/or emotional stress. During a session, focused pressure is applied through a variety of techniques in order to let your nervous system "re-set" so that the pain in this area can be alleviated. Although this therapy can be accompanied by some discomfort its effects are lasting and profoundly transformative.
Gua Sha is an East Asian technique that is used to reduce pain, stiffness, fatigue, insomnia, tension, and scar tissue, to increase mobility, to remove stagnant blood, lymh fluid, Qi (energy) and metabolic wastes, and to help maintain healthy circulation throughout the body. It can also be used to treat and prevent the common cold, flu, and bronchitis.
The application of this technique is done by first applying a light layer of oil to the skin. Next the therapist will use a thin, flat tool with a rounded edges a few inches in size and apply pressure in sweeping motions over the skin. This action is referred to as the Gua (gwaa). With each movement the tool pushes fluid ahead of it and leaves an indentation or vacuum behind it which draws fluid out of the deeper tissues. As this technique is applied the fluid comes to the surface and is visible as Sha. Sha appears in a variety of colors from red to purple and sometimes as small red bumps. This Sha will last for a few minutes to days depending on the severity of the fluid stagnation (blockage) in each individuals body.
Cupping therapy is an ancient therapy used by a variety of cultures that dates back hundreds of years. It uses a specially designed cup and suction to enhance blood circulation, cleanse the blood of stagnation, reduce pain, inflammation and tension in the body, reduce fatigue and stress and increase the body's natural ability to heal itself which will lead to greater overall health and immune system function. This technique pulls a small amount of skin up into the cup and if there is blood stagnation in the deeper tissues in this area discoloration may appear from light red to dark purple. The discoloration can last for a few minutes to a few days depending on the level of stagnation and severity of the condition being treated. The discoloration is not damaging to the body and is rarely accompanied by pain.
This therapy can be done alone for a 30 minute session or as an add on to an hour long session to further enhance your level of healing.
Jade Body detox
This service uses a technique called Gua Sha, or in the West called dermal friction. Using different shaped tools made of soothing Jade or bone, the entire body is detoxed from scalp to toe using a special oil blend and gentle massaging motions. This technique moves all stangnant fluids into the bodies lymph system and is drained away over the next 24 hours (drinking at least 32 oz of water will also ensure proper flushing of fluids.) No harsh redness is brought about by this therapy.
This therapy is great for those who are feeling an unusual amount of stress in their lives or those looking to detoxify their body.
Lymphatic Drainage Therapy aims to gently and rhythmically move the lymph through the body, especially swollen areas of the body, relieving pressure and enhancing the functioning of the immune system. As both a preventative and remedial technique, lymphatic drainage can be used for a wide range of purposes including faster recovery from injury, reduction of swelling and discomfort from pregnancy, and strengthened resistance to illness. The form of lymphatic drainage that I am certified in is Lymphia Gua Sha which is applied with a small stone or bone tool directly on the skin with oil. This form of therapy can have a detoxifying affect on the body and as such you should rest after your session and consume a generous amount of water.
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. Each session will utilize various cushions and support to ensure the expecting mother is completely comfortable in whatever position she prefers.
Benevolent Touch Therapy
This is a therapy designed for older adults or individuals with special needs. This therapy has proven to be a very successful treatment for individuals with Alzheimer’s disease, dementia and children and adults living with varies disabilities including: autism, downs syndrome and cerebral palsy. It is a very light touch therapy that relaxes and soothes the body and the mind, helps reduce symptoms from past traumas through the release of emotional blockages, along with giving the client a sense safety and security, all of which has shown to increase the overall quality of life for each individual. This therapy is preformed with the client fully clothed and can be done on a massage table, with a client who is bed ridden or in a chair.
Geriatric massage is a form of massage designed to meet the specific needs of the elderly. It helps to improve blood circulation, relieve pain, and also increase range of motion. It can help maintain and improve overall health and provide a sense of well being, as well as assist in regaining certain physical functions that have been reduced due to aging. In addition, this therapy provides much need healthy physical touch that can also help alleviate symptoms of loneliness or depression.
Chair massage is a popular way of relieving stress and releasing tension right in your home or workplace. You receive your massage in a specialized ergonomic chair which can be used in my office or brought to your location. In addition to the usual health benefits of massage, another benefit of chair massage is that it is done over the clothing. With seated massage, you can avoid the discomfort and awkwardness that you may feel in disrobing for a traditional massage. Also, chair massage sessions are usually shorter than traditional massage, making it convenient enough to fit into your busy schedule.
I offer chair massage services in office as well as for special events at your preferred location. Add chair massage to your events such as ladies nights, family reunions, office/work parties, etc. Rates for events vary so please contact me for more details.
