Therapeutic Massage

 Just one massage can help with:

  • Chronic or Acute Pain eg: sciatic pain
  • Stress Management - eg: tight neck and shoulders, headaches
  • Better Sleep
  • Increased Joint Mobility 

Benefits of massage are cumulative. Therefore regularly scheduled massages can give you long term pain and stress relief, and help you manage life.

A customized massage may include some or all the following techniques:

Trigger Point Therapy: this bodywork technique involves the applying of pressure to tender muscle tissue in order to relieve pain and dysfunction in other parts of the body. Sometimes massage and trigger point therapy are performed together.

Swedish massage is the baseline massage technique used in most massage sessions. It consists of long flowing strokes called effluerage, some petrissage (kneading), and sometimes tapotement (tapping or light percussion.) The overall objective of Swedish is to relax and soften tissue.

 Deep tissue massage is used to alleviate tension and soreness in the deeper muscle layer. For some this modality can be too intense if it is not done correctly. Superficial muscle tissue needs to be softened first before the layers underneath can be addressed.

 Shiatsu, Acupressure, and Reflexology Applied pressure is used along the meridians to unblock energy congestion which increases blood flow to the area and the flow of chi. In the case of reflexology, the energy points that I work are on the feet. These techniques help the body release tension, calm the nerves, boost immunity and help promote healing. (30 min stand-alone foot reflexology may be added to a 30 or 60 min massage.)
