Integrative Therapeutic Massage


I tailor the massage to every persons individual needs.   The massage can be soothing and relaxing, deep and intense, somewhere in-between, or a skillful intuitive blend of light, medium, and/or deep pressure, mixed together in blissful harmony.  My goal is to exceed your expectations every single time you come in.  Whether it's your first time in, or you've been to me a thousand times, I want you to feel like it was the best massage you've ever had.  I take great pride in the service that I offer, and you'll be able to tell that from the moment you are on the massage table.  Depending on the level of pressure that you love and what you are hoping to get out of the session - deep tissue, Swedish/relaxation, Myofascial Release, Neuromuscular Therapy, advanced cranial techniques, energywork, sports massage, foot reflexology, connective tissue, prenatal massage if you are pregnant, and Trigger Point Therapy are the modalities that I use most often during a therapeutic massage.  For this service, clients can undress to their comfort level and cover with a sheet and blanket for warmth and comfort.  I use certified organic oil and lotion, and pure essential oils.  If your dealing with chronic pain,  training for your next big event, recovering from a surgery or physical trauma, feel like your energy is out of balance, or simply want to relax, relieve stress, and zen out, come in for an integrative therapeutic massage and feel good now.

Myofacial Release Therapy (MFR)



Myofascial Release is a highly effective hands-on technique that provides sustained pressure into myofascial restrictions in order to eliminate pain and restore motion.  The fascia system resembles an uninterrupted, three dimensional web that surrounds every organ, muscle, bone, artery, vein, nerve, blood vessel and every cell of your entire body. It's one structure that exists from head to toe without interruption.  Each part of the entire body is connected to every other part by the fascia.
 

Under normal circumstances there is no separation within the fascia.  The system should allow for motion to occur fluidly throughout the body. The body's fascia can solidify with inflammation, disease and trauma creating restrictions that may produce tensile pressures of approximately 2,000 pounds per square inch on pain sensitive structures which can feel like wearing a straightjacket, yet does not show up in standard tests such as X-rays or MRI's.   Softening and releasing fascia restrictions using MFR, is like taking off the straightjacket.

What it may feel like:
Many people feel great when they experience structural releases.  They find that they can move more freely with better range of motion.  Some people report feeling energized or uplifted along with a deep sense of relaxation.  During the session, many people describe a warm or vibratory sensation.  The holds vary in length and pressure depending on tissue response.  Some clients describe a pleasant feeling of “letting go”.  Occasionally, people may experience a mild discomfort during fascia release.  It may feel like a slight burning or tingling sensation but will never be outside of your comfort zone.


Myofascial Release can be included in any 60, 90, or 120 minute session, upon request.  I frequently incorporate MFR into integrative therapeutic massage sessions.










Cranial-Sacral MFR


Cranial-Sacral Myofascial Release (MFR) is a very gentle form of Myofascial Release, done on the head, neck, back, and/or sacral/low back area.  It's an advanced technique which is great for treating migraines, TMJ, face pain, and can also help increase mental clarity, clear away brain-fog, and stay focused and sharp.  Receiving this service regularly has shown to be effective for reducing the frequency of your migraines in some cases, can make them a thing of the past.  I do not recommend doing this during the active stage of your migraine.  Cranial-Sacral MFR can be included in any 60, 90, or 120 minute service, upon request.



Hands-on Energywork

Deeply relaxing hands-on energywork is a profound experience.  In this session, I combine Reiki with very gentle forms of Myofascial Release and Cranial-Sacral MFR.   There is a focus on the 7 main chakras as well as on your feet.  It brings relaxation and feelings of peace to a whole new level.   This service can be received fully clothed, or with loose comfortable clothing, or you can undress to your comfort level and cover with a sheet and blanket.  This service is available as a 60 minute session or can be combined with massage or any other service.





Massage for tension headaches


Lets get rid of that tension headache.  This is a 60 minute service focusing on the back, neck, shoulders, and head.  It combines Trigger Point Therapy, Neuromuscular Therapy / advanced deep tissue, Myofascial Release, and Cranial-MFR, to effectively get rid of your tension headache, with great success.  I use certified organic oil & pure essential oils.   Book this as a 60 minute massage and specify to me that you would like this service.  It can also be included in any 90 or 120 minute service, upon request.
