Massage is not simply a luxury that you do once in a while
It’s a lifestyle commitment to better health spiritually, mentally, physically and emotionally. In this everyday world of added stress and responsibility, our bodies can get overloaded and easily break down. Massage is an important way to de-stress and keep the body in optimum health. I got into massage therapy because it had made such a huge impact on my life. Regular massage kept me more balanced and helped to keep my stress under control. I encourage you to make a commitment to your overall health and well being and take the time to schedule regular sessions.
A technique that uses gentle to firm pressure, used to relax the entire body. I incorporate this style most often for first-time users to introduce their body to the touch of massage.
A deeper form of massage that is used to release chronic muscle tension. It focuses on the deeper layers of muscles.
A trigger point is a tight area within the muscle that causes pain in other parts of the body. This technique will release constricted areas in the muscle thus alleviating pain. I love how you can experience significant pain relief after just one session.
Receiving massage while pregnant is a wonderful complementary choice for prenatal care. I love how this massage can alleviate a lot of the discomfort that pregnant women experience such as: backaches, stiff necks, headaches and edema (swelling). I have been certified for pregnancy massage since 1995.
I am a certified Infant massage Instructor and have been working with babies and children since 1995. Infants and children also experience stress and discomfort. This type of therapy is very rewarding; I love introducing the young ones to this special touch at an early age.
This technique is a type of gentle massage that encourages natural drainage of the lymphatic system. Unlike the heart, it does not have its own pump, when it gets sluggish it requires manual movement. In this day and age of our toxic environment many would benefit from lymphatic drainage in order to move the waste products and help maintain health.
Reflexology requires the application of appropriate pressure to points on the feet, hands and ears. These points correspond to different organs and systems and by applying pressure it helps maintain health to these areas of the body. Receiving this modality is like getting a whole body massage just by touching the feet.
