Using an intuitive approach, sessions will be based on blending multiple techniques to seek a solution for a more balanced functionality.
Reiki– a healing technique based on the principle that the therapist can channel energy into the patient by means of the “laying of the hands”, to activate the natural healing processes of the patient’s body and restore physical and emotional well-being.
Swedish– This is accomplished by rubbing the muscles with long gliding strokes in the direction of blood returning to the heart. Focused for gentle touch & relaxation.
Deep-Tissue– a type of massage therapy that focuses on realigning deeper layers of muscles and connective tissue. It is especially helpful for chronic aches and pains. Focused for slow, deep pressure & release.
Ashiatsu (Deepfeet Bar Therapy)– a barefoot massage technique performed with the therapist standing atop the table, using long gliding strokes with the feet. Focused for slow, deep, solid pressure, with a different deep pressure approach.
Myofascial Release– a manipulative treatment that attempts to release tension in the fascia due to trauma, posture, or inflammation. Using slow stretching and twisting motions with light pressure. Focused to release connective tissue, gentle, non-invasive, often times with little to no lubricant.
Medical Massage– is outcome-based massage, primarily the application of a specific treatment targeted to the specific problem(s) the patient presents with a diagnosis and are administered after a thorough assessment/evaluation.
Cupping– an ancient form of alternative medicine in which a therapist puts special cups on your skin for a few minutes to create suction. Used for many purposes, including to help with pain, inflammation, blood flow, relaxation and well-being, imitating a form of deep-tissue massage.
Scraping– a manual therapy approach that uses instruments with a specialized form of gently scraping the skin. Scraping creates inflammation and breaks up fascia, often used with deep-tissue work.
