Custom Massage

Swedish massage techniques are at the foundation of my custom massages. Want relaxation? Check. What to address those aching shoulders, unhappy low back, or tight hips? Check.  My clients generally come to me for an over all feel good massage that rejuvenates the whole body and promotes deep relaxation. However, this does not mean that areas that need extra work or deep pressure can not be added into the massage. Just depends on the day and what you ask for.  I typically work at a medium level; not light and fluffy but I don’t want you clenching your jaw through the pain. Great for reducing aches and pains, relieving stress, increasing circulation, promoting relaxation and increasing clarity.

 

Thai Massage

Often called ‘lazy man’s yoga’, Thai Massage, is a unique and specific form of body work that is performed on a natural fiber man in loose clothing. Thai massage uses a rhythmic sequence of stretches and massage that work to increase flexibility, circulation, and ‘lom’ (similar to prana, qi, or vial life energy). Through the years I have had clients with chronic low back and hip pain switch to regular thai massage to because the find it more comfortable and work more rewarding. Great for athletes, deep relaxation, sore muscles 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. From there the lower legs and feet are worked in a rhythmic fashion to relax the whole body. Once the feet are warmed and relaxed more direct pressure is applied to energy lines and reflex points along 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 your self but are watching the clock or budget. **Can be done independently or as an add on**

 

Aromatherapy

Olfaction, better known as the sense of smell, has the ability to deeply effect us. 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. :-)

 

Oncology/Cancer Massage

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 currently volunteer at St. Charles in the Infusion Room offering foot massage. Each session is tailored to your needs and will vary in length and intensity based on your needs that day. Brief phone interview required prior to first appointment.  Home visits available. I look forward to providing a safe and restoring space

***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.
