Clients generally see me for an overall feel-good massage that rejuvenates the whole body and promotes deep relaxation. This does not mean that areas needing extra attention or deep pressure are not part of the massage. My general goal for every massage is to get your body into a parasympathetic state so it can do the MAGIC it does on its own while you thoroughly enjoy each second of your massage. I typically work at a medium level – not light & fluffy but not no pain/no gain – but just right.
Great for reducing aches and pains, flushing out interstitial fluid/lymph (i.e., detox), relieving stress, increasing circulation, promoting relaxation, and increasing clarity.
Often called ‘lazy man’s yoga,’ Thai Massage is a unique form of bodywork performed on a natural fiber while the person receiving wears loose clothing. Thai massage uses a rhythmic sequence of stretches and massage that increases flexibility, circulation, and ‘lom’ (similar to prana, qi, or vital life energy). I have had clients with chronic low back and hip pain switch to Thai massage because they find it more comfortable and the session more rewarding.
Great for athletes, sore legs, deep relaxation, and stiff joints!
Thai Foot Massage
Treat your tootsies to a Thai Foot Massage! Each massage starts with an oh-so-nice hot towel wrap and application of essential oils. The lower legs and feet are worked rhythmically to relax the whole body. Once the feet are warmed and relaxed, more direct pressure is applied to energy lines and reflex points along with the feet, ankles, and lower leg. Unlike western foot reflexology, which is often designed to treat specific ailments and is sometimes painful, Thai foot massage is designed to balance and promote deep relaxation by stimulating and balancing all reflex points on the feet and feels great!
Perfect when you need to take care of yourself but are watching the clock or budget.
**Can be done independently or as an add on**
Olfaction, better known as the sense of smell, has the ability to affect us profoundly. Although scent is often viewed as less valuable than vision or hearing, it influences our cravings, moods, and cognition (particularly memory) throughout the day. I use therapeutic-grade essential oils in each of my massages. Interested in taking some home or incorporating more into your session? Let’s talk. :-)
Massage is becoming widely recommended as a complementary therapy for people undergoing treatment for cancer. The body of research is also growing that shows the many benefits. I hold a Certificate of Completion in ‘Massage for People Living with Cancer’ and used to volunteer at St. Charles in the Infusion Room. Each session is tailored to your needs and will vary in length and intensity based on your needs that day. A brief phone interview is required before the first appointment. Home visits available.
I look forward to providing you with a safe and therapeutic massage.
*** If you are currently undergoing treatment OR have received treatment for cancer at any point in your life it is very important to inform you massage therapist. Please speak up so proper adjustments can be made.
