Medical/Rehabilitative Massage focuses on a particular medical diagnosis as part of the physician’s treatment plan and can be recommended for a variety of dysfunctions arising from soft tissue, nerve compression, acute and chronic injuries, as well as postural distortion; carpal tunnel syndrome, frozen shoulder, sciatica, and migraines just to name a few.

Lymphatic Drainage Manual Lymphatic Drainage (MLD), commonly called a lymphatic massage, is used to reduce swelling on any part of the body and stimulate the lymphatic system. The massage consists of light and slow repeated movements, gently stretching the skin in a circular movement. This massage is done on bare skin, but may feel different from other massages since there are no oils used during the treatment.

Sports Massage is a specialized massage used to prepare athletes for peak performance and is given before, during and after sports events. The purpose of sports massage is to prevent injuries by draining away fatigue, reducing muscle tension, relieving swelling, and promoting flexibility. It is primarily used during training for improving athletic performance or for rehabilitation. Sports massage is considered beneficial for athletes at all levels.

Neuromuscular Therapy is the utilization of static pressure on on specific myofascial points to relieve pain. This technique balances the central nervous system by manipulating muscles, tendons, and connective tissue. NMT addresses Ischemia, Trigger Points, Never Compression or Entrapment, Postural Distortion, and Biomechanical Dysfunction.

Orthopedic Massage uses a comprehensive approach to treatment. After assessing the condition or injury, the physiology of the condition is matched with the best treatment protocol. The following are some of the techniques that may be used: active engagement, pnf stretching, myofascial release, advanced therapeutic techniques, NMT, nerve mobilization, positional release, muscle energy, myoskeletal alignment, and trigger point therapy.

Deep Tissue focuses on the deeper layers of muscle and connective tissue. It is effective in breaking up adhesions caused by chronic muscle tension, injury, and spasm. This technique relieves pain and  helps in restoring normal range of motion.

Ashiatsu Barefoot Massage delivers deep, broad, consistent pressure utilizing feet and body weight. It’s an effective alternative to regular deep tissue with less discomfort for the client.

Thai Massage takes traditional passive yoga stretches that open energy lines to stimulate energy flow as well as increase flexibility and relieve stress and tension.

Bliss OutSwedish Massage relaxes the entire body with long gliding strokes in the direction of blood flow. Other Swedish strokes include effleurage, petrissage, friction, kneading, tapotement, and vibration. These strokes aide in relaxation and stress reduction.

Symphony of the Cells is the use of several therapeutic grade doTERRA essential oils applied in a specific protocol to the shoulders, spine, and feet to address acute and chronic inflammation and illnesses.

RockBlade Therapy assists in the reduction of pain while it improves function. The “blade” itself allows me to identify and breakdown scar tissue, fascial restrictions, and stimulate the lymphatic system.
