DEEP TISSUE

Typically more focused, though it can incorporate the whole body, Deep Tissue Massage targets deeper layers of fascia and muscle, resulting in a greater release of tension and increased joint mobility. While receiving Deep Tissue Massage, you may feel discomfort or mild pain. Breathing deeply and slowly during these moments brings oxygen to the tissue and helps calm the central nervous system. You may experience mild soreness the day after a deep tissue session. This is common and usually lasts about a day.

 

TREATMENT

The less amount of the body that is covered during the massage, the deeper I can go. Spot treatment sessions are more concentrated on your area of concern. These sessions can be more intense, but typically bring about the greatest relief. I place SPORTS MASSAGE within this category. Sports Massage targets sports-related injuries.

 

SWEDISH / RELAXATION

Focused on the entire body as a whole and not on a specific area of pain, Relaxation Massage invites your mind to quiet down and your muscles to unwind. Combining a Swedish style with occasional light stretching offers gentle de-stressing without having to breathe through deep strokes or endure soreness the next day.

 

IMG_1448CUPPING THERAPY

Surrounding each muscle and internal organ is a tight web of connective tissue called Fascia. It is the “glue of the body”. Dehydration and/or lack of movement can cause the fascia to stiffen and tighten around the muscle, like shrink-wrap. Massage cupping is an ancient Eastern technique of applying suction cups to the skin which results in lifting the tissue instead of compressing it. This allows fresh blood and lymph to reach the muscle, accelerating the internal healing response. Sometimes marking occurs. These temporary marks are a result of stagnation underneath and last about 1-7 days.  Read more about cupping.

 

 

THAI MASSAGE

Thai Massage, also called Thai Yoga Massage, has been described as “having yoga done to you”. Originating in India 2500 years ago, Thai Massage was created to help monks sit for hours at a time and meditate. When receiving Thai Massage, the client is completely clothed, and carried through many yoga postures, stretches, and compressions that gradually increase in pressure. Traditionally, Thai Massage is performed on a large mat on the floor. Because there isn’t enough space in my studio for a Thai mat, I have created a Thai Fusion technique that blends Thai and Western Massage concepts. Personally, I find Thai Massage to be most therapeutic on the lower body. However, the relaxation effect of a full body Thai session is incomparable.

 

IMG_1428PRENATAL MASSAGE

I offer relaxing and therapeutic massage to expecting mothers in their 2nd trimester or later. Massage helps reduce anxiety and fatigue, increases blood and lymph circulation, relieves discomfort caused by the dramatic changes to your body, and stimulates the body’s release of natural pain killers – endorphins! You’re growing another life.. You deserve this!
