~Tailored to the unique needs of each person’s profile and preferences, my sessions employ multiple modalities to address and honor the different dimensions of your body:
Reiki: This is an energy healing modality from Japan, widely known for its ability
to relieve pain, tension and stress in addition to promoting deep relaxation
and durable healing for chronic conditions.
Swedish Massage: This is a gentle form of massage, addressing superficial layers of muscle tissues, warming up the body, stimulating blood flow and circulation, and bringing mind and body into a state of ease and relaxation.
Deep Tissue Massage: This slow and specific tissue work integrates myofascial release and addresses the deep layers of muscle tissue. Highly effective in releasing muscle tightness, lengthening muscle fibers, and undoing the body’s holding patterns, deep tissue massage provides long lasting benefits.
Zen Shiatsu: Based, like acupuncture, on Traditional Chinese Medecine, Shiatsu uses both pressure point therapy and stretching. Releasing muscle stiffness and rebalancing the energy flow throughout the body, Shiatsu stimulates pressure points related to specific internal organs. Deeply relaxing, it is also a powerful health enhancer, reinforcing the body’s natural self-healing potential.
Trigger Point: Addressing sore spots throughout the body by applying direct downward pressure, Trigger Point therapy is an approach that brings both relief and stimulation.
Pregnancy Massage: Supporting the specific needs that arise in pregnancy, this form of massage generally involves lying sideways supported by pillows or lying on one's back. The emphasis here is usually on stimulating circulation and on hip and lower-back work.
Proprioceptice Neuromuscular Facilitation: This form of facilitated stretching dramatically improves joint flexibility.
