Deep Tissue Massage

This treatment uses precise and deep finger pressure as well as slow, measured strokes to alleviate pain and tension in the body. Deep tissue massage physically breaks down bands of tissue called adhesions. This process can cause some discomfort and soreness. Most people who seek this treatment suffer from chronic pain, injury, or repetitive strain caused by overuse. Sessions are customized to meet the unique needs of each client.    

Active Release Technique® (ART®)

ART® is a highly successful soft tissue treatment that treats specific problems with muscles, tendons, ligaments, fascia and nerves. Conditions are caused by overused muscles that develop adhesions.  ART® stretches, separates, and releases these adhered tissues to relieve conditions including headaches, back pain, carpal tunnel syndrome, shin splints, shoulder pain, sciatica, plantar fasciitis, knee problems, and tennis elbow.  My sessions are combined with focused massage to provide maximum relief and results.

Sports Massage

Sports Massage is aimed to reduce pain, release tension, improve range of motion, and promote good muscle condition.  Pre and post event massages are beneficial to maximize performance and help with recovery.  Deep pressure is not used just prior to a race as this could reset muscles that are game ready.  Rather, moderate pressure is applied for the purpose of increasing circulation and mobilizing joints for optimal movement.  Immediately following an event, massage can help reduce soreness by releasing lactic acid from the muscles.

Orthopedic Massage

This style of manual therapy uses a multidisciplinary approach that integrates a range of techniques.  The goal is to restore structural balance throughout the body, reduce or eliminate pain, and rehabilitate musculoskeletal dysfunctions and sports injuries. With the use of multidirectional friction strokes, myofascial release, functional assessment, and scar tissue mobilization, Orthopedic massage can help restore soft tissues of the body to a state of health.

Prenatal Massage

Prenatal massage is a wonderful complementary choice for prenatal care.  It is a healthy way to reduce stress and promote overall wellness. Massage relieves many of the normal discomforts experienced during pregnancy, such as edema (swelling), backaches, stiff neck, leg cramps, and headaches. Additionally, massage for pregnant women improves blood and lymph circulation, reduces stress on weight-bearing joints, relieves tension, aids in sleep, and can help reduce depression or anxiety caused by hormonal changes.

Mobile Chair or Table Massage

Many corporations, special events, health fairs, and wellness retreats benefit from mobile massage and bodywork.  This type of massage can be performed on either a table or chair.  Consider including bodywork at your next event, whether it is a baby shower, Employee Appreciation Day, party, or company gathering. Onsite massage can add a special touch, treat hardworking employees, prevent overuse injuries in the workplace, and promote a culture of wellness.  Please call for special rates.
