Licensed Massage Therapist
My work usually incorporates a combination of different techniques in order to best meet my client’s needs.
Deep tissue massage uses deep, focused pressure to realign underlying musculature and connective tissue in order to relieve tension and pain, and increase mobility.
Medical massage/Pain management focuses on relieving chronic or acute pain from surgery, injury or a medical condition. Can alleviate depression associated with any such condition and speed the recovery process.
Sports massage helps treat injury, prevent future injuries, decrease pain, and increase mobility, improving athletic performance. I have advanced certification in sports massage.
Myofascial release stretches and elongates connective tissue in order to reduce fascial restrictions and improve posture and flexibility.
Trigger point therapy applies direct pressure to specific hyper-irritable points located within taut bands of muscle tissue or fascia. This increases blood flow to the area and releases the trigger point. This therapy decreases local and referred pain, improves mobility, and helps prevent further trigger points from developing.
Aromatherapy: Pure organic therapeutic grade essential oils can be blended into the massage oil for any treatment. The oil molecules enter the body through inhalation and absorption into the skin.
Lavender, for example, is detectable in the blood stream 20 minutes after application to the skin. Essential oils besides being delightful can alter moods, calm the mind, and promote good health.
