A customized blend of Therapeutic and Stress Relief techniques so you can Unwind your body AND your mind! Specific muscle groups are targeted to release painful holding patterns while soothing connective strokes calm tense muscles and nerves.
Each session is personalized by prioritizing your pain relief goals, areas of focus, as well as pressure and Modality preferences. Modalities/techniques incorporated into your customized massage may include: Trigger Point Therapy, Injury Massage, Sports Massage, Swedish Massage, Hot Stone Therapy, among others.
A Trigger Point or “knot” is a highly irritable spot in a tight band of muscle fibers characterized by extreme tenderness, referred pain and diminished range of motion.
Trigger Point Therapy uses deep compression techniques and targeted stretching to release the trigger point -alleviating pain and restoring mobility.
Muscle Injury can occur as a result of a traumatic event (such as whiplash after a car accident) or develop through repetitive motions over time (such as Carpal Tunnel Syndrome.)
Injury massage protocols target the injured muscle group and apply friction strokes to each individual muscle fiber to restore blood flow to the muscle and tendons, break up scar tissue and restore healthy range of motion.
Incorporating Massage with warm stones opens blood vessels increasing blood flow, softening muscle tissue and melting away stress!
Cupping Therapy is used to soften tight muscles and tone attachments, loosen adhesions, break up scar tissue, lift connective tissue, bring hydration and blood flow to body tissues, and drain excess fluids and toxins by opening lymphatic pathways.
While massage is performed by applying pressure, cupping instead uses negative pressure to pull, lift, open and expand the body’s soft tissues. Simple vacuum “cups” are used to create a soothing suction on the surface of the body that reaches deep into the tissues.
Massage Cupping utilizes a “pistol” to create suction. There is no fire involved in this technique.
Myofascial Therapy / Structural Bodywork seeks to correct postural and functional imbalances of the body by freeing restrictions in the fascia. Fascia is a seamless web of connective tissue that wraps every muscle, bone, nerve, blood vessel and organ, playing a crucial role in the support of the body’s structure. Tight and twisted fascia creates “holding patterns” that result in poor posture and muscular dysfunction.
A structural bodywork session is very different than a typical massage. The client wears a bathing suit and is asked to “work against” the therapist movement increasing the effectiveness of the stroke.
I put quality over quantity and schedule extra time for every appointment so you never feel rushed or cheated. If you schedule a 60 minute massage you can expect to receive a 60 minute massage!
I know this session is all about YOU so I take the time to listen to your needs and preferences. I dedicate a few minutes before the start of each session to clarify your goals for that day.
