I guide my clients in developing a deeper awareness of their bodies, while relieving the tension built up from everyday life. I do this through noticing misalignments and imbalances in posture, and noticing tendencies causing chronic tension, knots, headaches, or discomfort.
We work together through the guidance of the breath, talking things out, or holding space for whatever my client needs at the moment. My goal is to ensure that my clients receive the work that they came for, and leave satisfied with how they feel physically, emotionally, and spiritually.
I customize each session based on what my client’s needs are as well as what energy they are holding and wanting to let go of, or receive. I use a combination of trigger point therapy, neuromuscular techniques for chronic injuries or misalignments, deep tissue on stubborn areas combined with breath work, and I specialize in specific work on the neck to relieve pain from whiplash, headaches and migraines, increase mobility, and relieve TMJ pain, which may be combined with jaw and intra oral massage if needed.
I also make sure that after thoroughly working on an area, I give it a good flush all the way out each limb, helping to increase circulation and create a feeling of softness and wholeness.
Based on the work of psychologist Wilhelm Reich, integrative massage focuses on the connection between the mind, body, and spirit. In order to bring about this connection, various techniques and styles are utilized, making each session unique based on the clients needs at that time.
I specialize in specific work to relieve pain such as headaches and migraines, whiplash, tendonosis, back pain, knee pain, scoliosis, or chronically tight muscles that are affecting athletic performance. Often clients will come to me with specific areas of tension, pain or discomfort.
Deep tissue massage works on realigning the deeper layers of muscle tissue, using various techniques that often require firmer, sustained pressure, including myofascial release, trigger point, and neuromuscular massage. Due to the intensity, I always work within my client’s comfort.
Neuromuscular massage is a specialized form of massage that works with the nervous system in order to release specific holding patterns. The work addresses myofascial trigger points, nerve entrapment and compression, dysfunctional gait patterns, and more.
A trigger point is a tight area in the muscle that causes pain in other parts of the body due to how connective tissue spreads throughout the body. Trigger point therapy is specifically focused on relieving pain through cycles of isolated pressure and release.
I understand that living with headaches and migraines can be debilitating, so I work with my clients to assist in relieving their suffering. I offer 30 – 60 minute sessions directed specifically towards work on the contributing muscles in the upper back and neck.
I teach different techniques and strokes to build your confidence, and ways of using your body to add more pressure and make it easier on the giver. You may turn the lesson into a four-hand massage by your partner and a professional massage therapist. Option to learn how to turn a regular massage into sensual foreplay.
