utilizing a variety of therapies   


Energy Balancing 

Your body is the healer.  It draws all the healing energy you need from the Universe.  I am the conduit through which that energy flows.  As you relax and allow the healing energy deep into your muscles, your body's energies balance naturally.

Myofascial Release Therapy

Myofascial Release Therapy is an extremely effective hands-on technique that works by applying gentle, sustained pressure to eliminate pain and restore flexibility and motion to the fascia (connective tissue).  Fascia is a densely woven sheath that interpenetrates and "houses" every muscle, bone, vein, nerve and all of our internal organs including the spinal cord.  A good visualization is a web that holds everything together in a neat package connecting every part of the body to every other part of the body.  In its healthy state, fascia is relaxed and has the flexibility to stretch and move without undue restriction. If however, there has been physical trauma to the body or scarring, the normally pliable fascia becomes tight and restricted, causing tension throughout the rest of the body.  It is important to address fascial restrictions as well as muscle tension to provide lasting relief.


Deep Tissue Therapy

Deep tissue is not the same as deep pressure.  This technique is a way of approaching the body to reach deep within the muscle and underlying tissues to relieve pain, and address the source of that pain.  

Deep tissue massage focuses on realigning deeper layers of muscles and connective tissue. It is especially helpful for chronically tense and contracted areas. With chronic muscle tension or injury, there are usually adhesions (bands of painful, rigid tissue) in muscles,tendons, and ligaments. Adhesions can block circulation, limit movement and cause pain. Deep tissue massage breaks down adhesions to relieve pain and restore normal movement.

Though some soreness may occur following deep tissue massage, by focusing on your specific areas of concern, we can make longer-lasting changes to keep you feeling your best.


Barefoot Massage

I studied Ashiatsu Oriental Bar Therapy so don't be surprised if I climb on the table and give you the deepest pressure possible where you need it most!  Working through the sheet I can use my bare feet to get extra leverage on tough trigger points in big muscles.

Trigger Point Therapy

Trigger point therapy applies concentrated finger pressure to "trigger points" (painful irritated areas in muscles) to break cycles of spasm and pain. Most muscular pains have a trigger point that causes the muscle to go into spasms. Trigger Point Therapy involves placing pressure on that trigger point so that the muscle can relax and the pain can be lessened. The trigger point, which is the source of the pain, is not always where the patient feels the pain. The trigger point could be several inches away from the place where they feel the discomfort or pain. 


Cupping

Instead of pressing down into tight areas of tissue like traditional massage, suction cups pull up on the tissue, helping to free adhesions and scar tissue, and relieve tight muscles.

Cupping can feel wonderful, or it can be quite painful in areas that really need therapy.  For this reason, cupping is NOT always a pleasant or enjoyable therapy and may not be for everybody.  However, it can be highly effective, and the pressure can be adjusted to be lighter or deeper with communication between client and therapist.

Bruising or "hickeys" sometimes appear with cupping therapy.  Some areas will turn purple, while other areas treated with the same pressure will barely have a mark.  My acupuncturist explained that the bruising occurs in areas of stagnant energy where the body most needs the therapy.  Bruises usually disappear within a few days.
