Services & Rates
All of my massage services are unique and tailored to the client's individual needs and preferences at the time of service. I always incorporate a variety of styles and modalities of massage during each session based on what the client and I feel at that time. With communication between the client and myself during each session I intend to provide the best possible service to every client at each session. As with any service, there are certain guidelines to follow, so please wait to schedule an appointment or contact me to reschedule an appointment if you are running a fever or do not feel well at the time of the session. Also please remember to include all health conditions in conversation and on the health history form, as massage can be contraindicated for those with certain cardiovascular and blood vessel diseases.
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.
Trigger Point Therapy
Trigger Point Therapy is a style of bodywork that focuses on stimulating and releasing "trigger points" in your body. Trigger points are tender areas of tension similar to acupressure points, except they occur in the belly of the muscle rather than along the energy pathways of the body. These "knots" are built up throughout a person's life due to physical, mental, and/or emotional stress. During a session, focused pressure is applied through a variety of techniques order to release your trigger points. This process can be quite painful at times, yet the effects are lasting and profoundly transformative.
Neck, Shoulders and Face Massage
Neck, Shoulders and Face massage is a shorter duration massage table service that focuses on the upper shoulders, neck, face and scalp. This massage service is to help with ailments like neck pain, sinus pressure, headaches and it is great for a quick burst of general relaxation. Clients do not have to fully undress for this service if they do not wish to which may make it a more convenient and comfortable service for some.
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 pillows and side lying 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. Disclaimer: ** I do not work with anyone before the second trimester (before 12 weeks) as a precaution.**
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.
