Customized Therapeutic Massage
I provide a customized massage based on the clients' needs and the pressure desired. This massage includes Swedish to Neuromuscular Massage and Light to Deep pressure. Please let your therapist know what you would like to focus on and the pressure you prefer. Based on your medical history and information taken during the intake process by your therapist your massage type and pressure may be modified prior to your appointment and discussed with you.
During your massage, I encourage that you communicate with the therapist about pressure (more, less, or the same) and the therapist should check in with you on the pressure and if you are comfortable.
Warm Stones Massage
I use warm Basalt Stones that are warmed in the water at the right temperature so that I am able to handle the stones with my hands and apply them to the body immediately. The warmed stones are used to warm the tissues and allow ease of muscle movement. This is a great relaxing massage and a great tool to work those stubborn knots out.
Warm Bamboo sticks are used very similarly to warm stones. The sticks are warmed with a medical-grade heating pad. This allows me to reuse sticks quicker throughout the massage and around the body in a more efficient way. This is the technique taught by Nathalie Cecilia and describes the massage as follows: "The Bamboo-Fusion technique allows you to easily adjust the pressure, making deep-tissue work easy." As your therapist "I can effectively palpate using the bamboo and is able to easily locate muscle tension and treat trigger points."
Sticks and Stones Massage
This is an amazing combination of both Warm Stones and Bamboo Fusion and only offered in a 90-minute session.
As a woman's body expands and changes, muscles are pulled and stretched that may cause pain and discomfort. Some women may feel their posture change and/or fatigue throughout the pregnancy. This massage is performed as you lay side-lying with a body pillow and with a pillow under your head for added comfort while supporting you and your baby. The massage is both relaxing and soothes the distresses that pregnancy can cause. I offer prenatal massage for women in their second and third trimesters only (greater than 12 weeks). Also, the sessions are only 1 hour or 90 minutes long.
A wonderful ancient tool in the modern form of vacuum therapy. Cupping provides incredible results by creating a suction and vacuum pressure to soften tight muscles and tone attachments, loosen adhesions and lift connective tissue, bring hydration and blood flow tissues, move deep inflammation to the skin surface for release, and drain excess fluids and toxins by opening lymphatic pathways. It can be easily customized to provide a variety of techniques, from lymphatic drainage to deep tissue release. This can be a full session or added to a session and a specific muscle is cupped or a certain area for 10 minutes.
Thai Foot Massage
During a typical Thai Foot Massage session, a special Thai balm is applied and a variety of hands-on techniques including movement, stretches, circular massage, and thumb pressure are used to stimulate the reflexes of the foot as well as the sen (energy) lines of the foot and lower leg. The client experiences full-body benefits by only working the feet & lower leg and leaves the session feeling relaxed, balanced, and invigorated. Sessions are offered in 30 minutes and 60-minute increments.
