For some the close but not too close experience of Reiki is a more ideal treatment than the fully hands on experience of Massage Therapy. Some would equate it to the feeling one gets when praying with someone.
You will be fully clothed on a massage table or chair.
The Reiki experience can decrease the burden of feelings such as fear, anger, jealousy, guilt, insecurity, resentment, and hyper-vigilance.
Reiki can increase feelings of safety, security, satiety, and balance.
Reiki can be incorporated into Swedish-style massage therapy for no additional charge. Please request when booking.
Swedish (Relaxation) Massage
Ethical, Empathetic Touch is essential to wellness. Experiencing this form of touch without judgement can bring peace, relaxation, and awareness.
With Swedish Massage the only goal is relaxation of a restless mind, body, and soul.
This type of massage can be done as frequently as once a week and is recommended at least once a month.
Massage can be administered through clothing or with skin-to-skin contact, but draping of the private areas is always required.
Thai massage is more energizing and rigorous than most other forms of massage therapy. It's also called Thai Yoga massage, because I use my hands, knees, legs, and feet to move you into a series of yoga-like postures and stretches.
Thai massage is like doing yoga without doing any of the work.
No oil is applied, so you are fully dressed during the session. A single Thai massage session will help you release stress and relieve pain, and help you function more effectively at work and home.

Enhances performance and prolongs a sports career, helping to prevent injury, reduce pains and swelling, relax the mind, increase flexibility, and improve recovery rates.
Sports Massage aids in the rapid recovery of an athlete from an injury by encouraging greater kinesthetic awareness and promoting the body's natural immune function.
Pre-Event: Designed to energize and invigorate the body in preparation for anything from a distance run to a basketball game.
Post-Event: Gentle Stretching and Flushing of the tissues after a strenuous event.
Multi-hour packages available for events.
Pain Relief Session
If you know exactly where the problem lies and you just really want to work out that one spot, you may find you're surprised when we discover the actual source of the pain.
This work is often done skin-to-skin, utilizing Neuromuscular Techniques, with Instrument Assisted Soft Tissue Mobilization (wooden or stone tools) which allow me to sink deeper into the tissue, Trigger Point therapy, and other methods to provide a deep and lasting relaxation of your muscular problems.
Deep Tissue Massage
Deep Tissue Massage is a form of bodywork that aims to relieve tension in the deeper layers of tissue in the body.
Deep Tissue Massage is a highly effective method for releasing chronic stress areas due to misalignment, repetitive motions, and past lingering injuries.
Due to the nature of the deep tissue work, open communication during the session is crucial to make sure you don't get too uncomfortable.
I do not subscribe to a “no pain, no gain” philosophy. I believe that open communication and focused breathing can allow this type of work to be done with minimal discomfort.
Keep in mind that soreness is common after the treatment, and that plenty of water should be ingested to aid in recovery, just like after exercise.
Add in or on to any Deep Tissue or Trigger Point Therapy.
Cupping applies suction to tissues in order to pull fluids to the surface. This has been shown to increase circulation and decrease deep tissue inflammation.

Assisted application with your roll $10

It's all the rage with professional athletes, but it's good for us non-olympians too.
Kinesio Tape can be incredibly beneficial for acute pain, chronic pain (which is usually posture related), diminishing the appearance of scars, and improving fluid dynamics (edema).
There are some contraindications for taping, so I do not tape without a little bit of bodywork and some health questions first.
Please feel free to contact me with any questions you may have about this service.
Corporate Chair Massage
Chair massage is a popular way of relieving stress and releasing tension right in your workplace or during an event such as a health fair.
Most chair massages last 15-30 minutes. It is performed over the clothes in a specialized ergonomic chair which I bring to your location.
3 hour minimum booking. (6 hours max)
Travel costs are not included in pricing.
I can perform approximately 10 fifteen-minute massages in a 3 hour period.
I have a network of other therapists who can be booked to work alongside me to meet your needs.
Cost of services can be mitigated by passing some of the cost to each individual client. (Usually $1 per minute).
I have many additional relaxation tools at my disposal. Feel free to combine these in anyway you like to your massage.
Dry Brushing: aids in draining of the lymphatic system with a slightly scratchy, irritating, exfoliating sensation. If you have rough patches of skin or have been ill frequently, this may help! Bring your own brush or purchase one in office for $15.
Essential Oils: Our sense of smell is one of our strongest senses when it comes to how we feel. Relaxed, Focussed, Energized, Invigorated, just to name a few. I have many, MANY oils. Let me know if you have a particular oil you're fond of, or if you would like me to create a special blend for you based on a sense you're striving for.
Hot Towels: Warm, wet towels placed over problem areas softens and relaxes the muscles so we can do better, deeper, faster work. Get the full effect by having them soaked in your choice of essential oil.
Long Consultation, Assessment, Movement, Massage, and Movement again is the plan!
In-depth discussion of your needs/wants based on the current condition of your body, mind, and spirit.
Thorough analysis of how you sit, stand, walk, move, and breathe.
I want to look for movements, stretches, and massage techniques that provide relief from your pain, increase your mobility, and move you closer to your wellness goals.
Requires at-home commitment to movement.
