This modality has been around for millennia!
There are profound healing effects with touch!
There are many, many forms of massage. These are the types I specialize in.
Therapeutic Massage - 60 or 90 minutes
This is the name/term I use to describe my massage methodology. Areas I focus on have the largest amount of receptors such as tendons, seams (fascia between muscle groups/compartments), feet, hands, spine, and head and I can add pressure as requested.
More sensory input = better output.
Your area of concern will be addressed in addition to a whole body massage. This means I ask if you are comfortable with me touching your abdomen, even if it is over the sheet.
Remember, it's all connected. If you have back pain, your abdominals are the front of your back. Balance.
Manual Lymphatic Drainage - (Certified Manual Lymph Drainage Therapist) - 60 minutes
Soft tissue mobilization (Vodder method) to promote lymph movement after high intensity or long duration events (ie. marathons), traumatic and post surgical edema, or assist conditions such as headaches, migraines, fibromyalgia, rheumatoid arthritis, scleroderma, reflex sympathic dystrophy (RSD), stress, fatigue, venous insufficiency, uncomplicated lymphedema, and more.

Swedish Massage - 60 or 90 minutes
This life can be too much at times - can't keep up, can't slow down, too much to do. This is relaxation massage, meaning the primary purpose is to become relaxed! The goal is to soothe your nervous system and help prepare you to re-enter reality.
Reflexology - 30 minutes
Pressure applied to the feet over specific points can facilitate relaxation, reduce pain, help functions of associated areas such as organs, and feel energizing.
These massage approaches will help:
- reduce pain,
- improve function and posture by balancing and organizing soft tissue,
- increase blood and lymph flow,
- increase body awareness and body-mind connection.
This approach will discuss self-care and lifestyle strategies to help keep you moving in the right direction.
