All or some of the following modalities are incorporated into your massage treatment depending on your needs and goals you wish to meet in your session.
Therapeutic Massage Massage is so much more than "feeling good." A therapeutic treatment is custom tailored to your personal needs and goals with body work. There is no "routine" to this work, ensuring that your treatment is as unique and individual as you are. The work can be done deeply in areas of concern, lightly and anywhere in between. A blend of gentle deep tissue, trigger point therapy, Myofascial release, stretching and Swedish massage techniques are used to achieve your goals of muscle wellness. Therapeutic massage is meant to increase circulation, reduce pain, improve flexibility and enhance your general sense of wellness and balance. All treatments are designed based on your specific goals you would like to accomplish in your treatment.
Prenatal Massage Honoring the body of an expectant mother is a privilege for me. She receives a therapeutic treatment tailored to her individual needs. The amazing and dramatic changes a mother's body goes through during pregnancy is gently and reverently cared for. The use of pregnancy pillows, side lying techniques and comfortable pressure connect mother and child to the work.
Deep Tissue Massage Designed to lessen extensive tension, deep tissue massage is a technique used to relieve both muscles and connective tissue below the surface by using a bit more pressure. The use of slower, deeper and more broad strokes as well as specific release techniques and stretching helps to improve range of motion and begin to encourage tension patterns to release. My technique of deep tissue respects the body's natural boundaries without causing additional injury to the muscles. "No pain, no gain" is not my personal philosophy when accomplishing deeper work. Using proper leverage, technique and gaining your trust in a session yields greater results.
Hot Stone Massage Smooth, heated, basalt stones of various weights and sizes are placed upon your muscles and allowed to warm them through. They help calm the nervous system and bring your body's energy to center. The warm stones are also used to deepen the massage experience by being used as tools during the massage treatment. This option is perfect for those that want a deeper state of relaxation with their therapeutic work without having to utilize deep tissue techniques.
Cupping Treatment Cupping is an ancient modality that traditionally uses glass cups, and a flame to create a suction between the cup and the skin. The use of the cups in this way, creates a deep massage-like experience. The suction lifts the tissues within it to allow for space to be created underneath to increase blood flow, pull toxins out of stagnant tissues and increase the lymphatic circulation. Allowing the cups to remain in place for a few minutes, also helps the adhesions within the fascia to release. Another technique used is to massage the body with the suction, and that creates a wonderfully deep sensation. 30 minutes of cupping is equivalent to a 60 minute deep tissue treatment...without the pressure! In my practice, I use silicon cups instead of glass. Some areas are more sensitive than others (ie glutes, IT band) and when cups are left in a particular area for a few minutes, the traditional red mark is left behind and may last anywhere from 1-10 days. Some are darker than others and are just a sign of areas where there was an increased amount of tension, toxicity or injury. This treatment should be treated like an intense workout where rest and a lot of water should be prioritized after the session to help the newly freed toxins to move through the lymphatic system.
Aromatherapy I use DoTerra therapeutic grade essential oils. Oils can be used topically and in a diffuser. The use of them can help enhance the massage experience through the sense of smell and utilizing the physical properties of the oils themselves in contributing to your wellbeing. My personal favorite is Deep Blue and Aromatouch with my deep tissue sessions to increase the circulation and warming of the muscles.
