Swedish Massage is a very relaxing and therapeutic style of bodywork. It combines oils or lotion with an array of strokes such as rolling, kneading, and percussion to help the body improve its circulation. The benefits of this type of bodywork are wide-ranging and include relief from aches and pains, decreased stress levels in the body, enhanced mental clarity, improved appearance, and greater flexibility.
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. Keep in mind that soreness is pretty common after the treatment, and that plenty of water should be ingested to aid with the flushing and removal of toxins that will have been released from the deep tissue during the session.
Chair massage is a popular way of relieving stress and releasing tension right in your home or workplace. You receive your massage in a specialized ergonomic chair which I bring to your location. In addition to the usual health benefits of massage, another benefit of chair massage is that it is done over the clothing. With seated massage, you can avoid the discomfort and awkwardness that you may feel in disrobing for a traditional massage. Also, chair massage sessions are usually shorter than traditional massage, making it convenient enough to fit into your busy schedule.

Hot Stone Therapy is a style of massage where heated stones are placed at specific sites on your body to deepen relaxation and promote circulation in your muscles. Muscles that are heated with these stones release tension and stress much more deeply and quickly than with a traditional massage. The overall experience is very relaxing, nurturing, and rejuvenating.
Pregnancy Massage is a style of bodywork designed specifically for pregnant women. Pregnancy is a time when a woman's body endures tremendous stress due to dramatic physical and emotional changes. Using various techniques specially developed for the expecting mother, Pregnancy Massage helps release the pain and discomfort experienced throughout pregnancy. The benefits are profound, including emotional support, the relief of joint pain due to extra weight and postural imbalance, and improved breathing and relaxation.
Add CBD Oil to your next massage! This is a moderate strength level of CBD (Cannabinoid), and I highly recommend you go to projetcbd.org before scheduling your session. I do a blend of CBD and massage oil so as not to overwhelm your senses! The mix of camphor and menthol have a long lasting cooling effect that help soothe while the CBD blocks the pain.
Cupping is based on the ancient Chinese technique of using glass globes and alcohol set aflame to produce a vacuum effect when placed on the body. Modern cupping is done using silicone cups of varying sizes to induce a deep tissue result, without the pressure or the danger of getting burned. You can add this modality to your massage unless you have a contraindication. It's like adding time to your massage and getting better results!
Athletes have long used taping to support muscles, improve performance and recovery time, and ease pain. Post massage, tape will be applied to target areas and can be left on for 5 days, but not guaranteed. Potential target areas are: neck, shoulders, tennis or golfers elbow, carpal tunnel, plantar fasciitis, just to name a few!
