Bleeding disorders such as heamophillia - Massage may cause damage to tissues and result in bleeding.
Tumors - If you are unsure of any lumps and bumps please do not receive massage and inform doctor immediately.
A consultation is done on the first visit. You will be given important documents to fill out so that you and your LMT can design a specific treatment plan that fits your unique needs. This generally is between 15-20 minutes depending on the type of massage and your specific concerns. It is very important that you show up to your first appointment 15-20 minutes early so that you get the full time allotted for your massage otherwise time will be deducted from your massage and you will still be charged the full amount for the service.
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
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.
Medical or therapeutic massage
Medical massage is very similar to a deep tissue massage. It zones in on the deeper underlying tissues to help treat a specific condition or injury. This is a localized massage. It treats several conditions such as carpal tunel, strained muscles, rotator cuff injuries, shin splints, fibromyalgia, and arthritis just to name a few.
Certified Pregnancy Massage
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.
This is a service offered to women only. It focuses mainly on the abdomen to increase blood flow to the reproductice organs, increasing the healing process, increasing the functions and well being of the reproductive system. I use a myofacsial release technique to help break up any adhesions or scar tissue which may inhibit proper functions. This is a great way to alleviate pain from chronic illnesses of infertility such as endometriosis and PCOS while increasing your chances of conception.
Reflexology is a type of bodywork that focuses on applying pressure to the specific nerve zones in your feet. Unlike other foot massages that intend to mostly relieve tension in the feet themselves, reflexology is a far more in-depth science that aims to harmonize your entire body. According to reflexology, every part of the human body is mapped into your feet. Reflexology treatments have been found to be highly effective for conditions such as allergies, headaches, and depression.
Aromatherapy uses oils to obtain a desired effect. Lavender, ylang ylang, chamomile promote relaxation, eucalyptus alleviates sinus congestion, cinnamon increases blood flow,and citrus promotes energy , while peppermint decreases inflammation. The oils are mixed with the massage lotions and applied during a massage. This is generally used with a relaxation or Swedish massage.
Hot Stone Therapy
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.
reflexology add on
This is an add on service which will be incorporated into the massage. This includes the feet only and does not add time to your service. This can be added to any massage service.
Myofascial release is a form of soft tissue therapy intended to eliminate pain, increase range of motion, and rebalance the entire body. It does this by using massage techniques to stretch the fascia and release the bonds that exist between the fascia, muscles and bones. Fascia is the connective tissue that connects and covers all muscles, organs, and skeletal structures of the body. Direct myofascial release is sometimes known as deep tissue work. Indirect release applies light pressure and gently stretches the fascia; this allows for increased blood circulation and relief from pain.
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.
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.
