Swedish Massage / Oncology (Cancer) Massage / Prenatal & Postnatal Massage
Swedish Massage is the most common and well-known type of bodywork therapy, providing rest and relaxation using five basic massage strokes:  effleurage (sliding or gliding), pétrissage (kneading), tapotement (rhythmic tapping), friction (cross fiber), and vibration/shaking.  Developed in Stockholm a couple of centuries ago, Swedish Massage has been shown to help reduce pain, joint stiffness, and promote increased circulation.  It may also be referred to as Relaxation Massage since the primary focus is to calm the nervous system and promote a sense of well-being.  Swedish Massage is typically performed using light to moderate pressure with less emphasis on working out soreness and knots in muscle tissue.

Oncology Massage is the modification of existing massage therapy techniques in order to safely work with complications of cancer and cancer treatment.  Anyone who has ever received cancer treatment, from those in active treatment to those in recovery or survivorship, as well as those at the end of life, are best served by a massage therapist who has received training in oncology massage.  Essential aspects of an oncology massage therapist's skill set are an informed understanding of the disease itself and the many ways it can affect the human body; the side effects of cancer treatments, such as medications, surgery, chemotherapy and radiation; and the ability to modify massage techniques in order to adapt for these side effects, as well as for the disease.  Learn more about oncology massage here. 

Prenatal Massage is a popular therapy for expectant mothers and has been found to reduce stress, decrease swelling in the arms and legs, and relieve aches and pains in muscles and joints.  Not only can massage be physically beneficial, but the human touch can be comforting and provide emotional support during pregnancy.  Massage therapy has also been found to reduce anxiety and depression.  The mother's body must be properly positioned and supported during the massage, using pillows and padding, to ensure the comfort and safety of the mother and baby.  NOTE: Massage is often contraindicated during the first trimester of pregnancy and women with certain health conditions may not be able to receive prenatal massage at all.  Please consult your physician prior to scheduling.

Postnatal Massage is of great benefit to new mothers, helping them recover from the physical and emotional stresses of labor and childbirth.  It can reduce pain and trigger points developed during pregnancy, allowing the body to quickly transition back to its pre-pregnancy state.  Massage alleviates fatigue and aids in the balance of hormones which play a significant role in postpartum depression.  Since massage induces relaxation, it may also help regulate sleep, promoting proper rest to allow the mind and body to heal.  Learn more about pregnancy massage here.


 
Deep Tissue Massage / Sports Massage / Trigger Point Therapy 
Deep Tissue Massage and Sports Massage both help to relieve severe tension in the muscle and connective tissue or fascia.  This type of therapy is often recommended for individuals who experience chronic as well as acute pain, heavy physical activity, or anyone who has sustained physical injury.  This technique helps to release lactic acid build-up, while soothing soreness and muscle spasms.  Deep Tissue & Sports Massage use some of the same strokes as traditional massage, but the movement is slower, the pressure is harder, and therapy usually does not include the entire body.  Concentration is on areas of tension and pain such as stiff necks, sore shoulders, and tightness of the lower back.  Athletes and others who are very active are prime candidates. 

Trigger Point Therapy (also called Myofascial Trigger Point Therapy) is a bodywork technique that involves applying pressure to tender muscle tissue in order to relieve pain and dysfunction in specific parts of the body.  This type of therapy is often combined with massage to help eliminate pain and to re-educate the muscles into pain-free habits.  After several treatments, neuromuscular pain is reduced, range of motion is increased, tension is relieved, and circulation, flexibility, and coordination are improved.  This type of therapy also helps alleviate, back pain, neck pain, migraines, and other types of headache.

Chair Massage / Seated Massage / Event Massage 
Chair Massage, a.k.a. Seated Massage, uses a combination of sliding and kneading movements (without oil or lotion) to ease tension, loosen tight muscles, relieve stress, and stimulate circulation.  Clients are fully clothed during these sessions which allow massage to be performed in a variety of settings, such as businesses, street festivals, and other public locations.  Seated Massage is normally focused on the upper body, including the back, neck, arms, and shoulders.  This type of therapy can help with tension headaches, stiffness in the neck, low back pain, and repetitive stress injuries like tendinitis and carpal tunnel syndrome. 

Event Massage is a great and unique way to make any occasion extra special!  Chair Massage is recommended for all kinds of events and celebrations:  Awards Banquet, Baby Shower, Bachelor Party, Bachelorette Party, Backyard Barbecue, Bar/Bat Mitzvah, Birthday Party, Bridal Shower, Business Expo, Church Social, Class Reunion, Company Picnic, Cocktail Hour, Conference, Convention, Corporate Seminar, Exhibition, Family Reunion, Graduation Party, Grand Opening, Ground Breaking, Health Fair, Holiday Party, House Party, Ladies Night, Launch Party, Luncheon, Music Festival, Neighborhood Party, Office Function, Over-the-hill Party, Pamper (Spa) Party, Promotion, Quinceanera, Recognition, Rehearsal Dinner, Religious Celebration, Retirement Party, Retreat, Seminar, Senior Center Event, Staff Appreciation Day, Street Festival, Trade Show, Wedding Reception, and any other reason you can think of to treat yourself and your guests to "The Ultimate Experience in Mobile Massage Therapy!"

 Canine Massage / Dog Massage 
Canine Massage, a.k.a. Dog Massage, is the therapeutic application of hands-on deep tissue techniques to the voluntary muscle system for the purpose of increasing circulation, reducing muscle spasms, relieving tension, enhancing muscle tone, promoting healing, and increasing range of motion in all breeds of dogs.  Just as the popularity of less invasive approaches to health care in humans has gained in recent years, so too have these procedures and methods gained acceptance in the care and treatment of animals.  And just as we have witnessed the recent advent of professionals like equine chiropractors, equine physical therapists, and equine nutritionists in the horse world, we are seeing these same professions develop in the dog "community."

Every dog owner and trainer - whether they own or work with dogs involved in competition (e.g., Greyhounds, Huskies, etc.), in law enforcement, in aiding the handicapped, or whether they just have dogs as family pets - wants, and in many instances, needs their canines to be free of muscle problems that can cause pain and inhibit their dogs' movement and performance.  Because of the health-promoting qualities of massage, as well as its restorative properties, knowledgeable owners and trainers are incorporating this therapy as an integral part of their dogs' total and continuous health care program.

NOTE: Canine massage should only be used as a powerful complementary tool for behavioral purposes and overall well-being.  Like other techniques, your dog may have some condition for which massage is contraindicated.  Please consult your veterinarian before conducting canine massage to ensure that your dog has no physical problems which might be aggravated by such activity.  Arthritis, fractures, cancer, and certain skin conditions are examples of situations when massage may not be an appropriate modality.  Canine massage is never a substitute for licensed veterinary care.

Wendy Marie 
charges a flat rate for Canine Massage.  Although most massages will take 30-45 minutes, all dogs are unique, so it is important to treat them at their own pace.  The introductory session costs slightly more than follow-up sessions because it requires more time, mainly for the dog to become familiar with Wendy and massage therapy.  The first visit
will include an interview with the dog's owner and a full body massage (or as much as the dog will allow).  Wendy performs Canine Massage at YOUR location (Brevard County) for the following rates:
$60 for introductory session
$50 for follow-up sessions
Minimum flat-rate payment required for each session and additional travel fee may apply.  CASH is the ONLY form of payment accepted and gratuity is appreciated.

Additional Policies & Information

Wendy Marie is a Licensed Massage Therapist registered with the state of Florida and carries professional liability insurance via the Beauty & Bodywork Insurance program managed by Veracity Insurance Solutions.  Every first-time client must complete and sign a Health Consent Form prior to receiving any massage services.  Clients under the age of 18 must also have parental consent and adult supervision during the entire therapy session.  For Canine Massage, every dog owner must complete and sign a Canine Health Consent Form before the initial therapy session.  
 
Wendy Marie strictly provides mobile massage therapy in a client's home, office, or other location.  She will bring fresh clean linens, relaxing music, a professional-grade massage table or chair, the very best all-natural massage oil (aromatherapy scents also available), and any other necessary equipment.  

Wendy Marie is a VERY busy gal!  Same-day appointments are often not feasible because she is either booked or has already made other plans.  At least 48 hours notice is highly recommended as her availability is limited, especially on weekends and holidays when she assists her husband with his mobile DJ business (Dale Bryan's Custom Music Service).  She also has many clients who book massages on a regular basis, so appointments should be requested as far in advance as possible.  Please call Wendy at 321-266-9956 between 9:00 am and 9:00 pm (EST) since massages are NOT scheduled via text message or email.  For general inquiries, feel free to use my contact form and she will get back to you as soon as she can.  You can find even more information on her Frequently Asked Questions page.
 
Wendy Marie strives to keep her operating costs down and her massage rates as low as possible for her clients.  Therefore, CASH is the ONLY form of payment she accepts.  Please make arrangements before your appointment to have cash on hand since payment will be due immediately following your therapy session.  And as with other services, if you are pleased with the treatment you receive, it is customary (and greatly appreciated) to give a 15-20% gratuity. 
 
Wendy Marie has the right to refuse to treat any area of a client's body and to terminate a therapy session if she feels the client is sexualizing the relationship, or if she feels adversely influenced or threatened in any way by the client or another individual present during therapy.  Inappropriate conduct or disrespectful behavior will not be tolerated and therapy will cease immediately if any type of sexual advance occurs, including suggestive remarks or even the mention of intimate, erotic, or illicit activity.  

Wendy Marie reserves the right to refuse treatment or terminate a therapy session if a client reveals any medical condition (before or after therapy begins) for which massage is contraindicated, or if a potentially harmful situation develops at the session location.  Here is a quick reference of medical conditions for which massage may be indicated or contraindicated, and please consult your physician before receiving massage therapy.  Also, Wendy only provides her services in smoke-free environments as smoking is a known health hazard and is not conducive for promoting the therapeutic Benefits of Massage.  

Wendy Marie offers personalized gift certificates for all massage services.  You can purchase a massage for that someone special (or couple) to last up to 2 full hours!  Wendy now offers convenient and environmentally-friendly digital gift certificates that can be sent via email (Adobe PDF) or text message (hyperlink/URL).  Best of all, you can pay her later at the therapy session like you would for a regular appointment, which makes this a great option when you need a last-minute gift or you're not sure how long of a massage to buy.  Yes, Wendy has the old-fashioned, pre-paid, paper kind, too.  Whatever you want, just let her know, and she'll see what she can do to make it happen!
