PUT YOUR BODY
IN GOOD HANDS

MASSAGE THERAPY

PHILOSOPHY

I have been practicing as a Registered Massage Therapist for over five years and have earned a reputation for my abilities in working with chronic pain and post operative care.  I look at the body from a holistic perspective in that the location of the pain is not always the source of the problem. I look at each case independently, drawing on my experience to help me find the root cause of your pain so that we can treat it with the goal of lessening or eliminating your discomfort.

I am constantly updating my skill set, recently adding cupping to my repertoire, in order to expand my treatment options for my patients.  My patients' health and well being is my utmost concern and I work with each and every patient to ensure I provide them with the best treatment possible and that we work together towards a common treatment goal.

"Our bodies communicate to us clearly and specifically, if we are willing to listen."

- Shakti Gawain

 
THERAPUTIC MASSAGE
CUPPING

Massage therapy consists primarily of hands-on manipulation of the soft tissues of the body, specifically, the muscles, connective tissue, tendons, ligaments and joints for the purpose of optimizing health.

 

Massage therapy treatment has a therapeutic effect on the body and optimizes health and well-being by acting on the muscular, nervous and circulatory systems. Physical function can be developed, maintained and improved; and physical dysfunction and pain and the effects of stress can be relieved or prevented through the use of Massage Therapy.

Cupping therapy utilizes negative pressure, rather than tissue compression, for superior results in a wide array of bodywork techniques. It’s safe, comfortable and gives remarkable results.

By creating suction and negative pressure, cupping therapy lifts connective tissue, releases, rigid tissue and loosens adhesions. Cupping pulls stagnated blood and waste to the skin level where it can be easily flushed out by the lymphatic and circulatory system.

Cupping techniques bring blood flow and nutrition to stagnant areas. The pulling action engages the nervous system, thus allowing deep relaxation throughout the entire body.

EXERCISE AND STRETCHING

Treatment doesn't end when you leave my clinic. I will develop a personalized stretching and exercise plan for you to do at home to help improve your symptoms and prevent recurrence.

RELAXATION MASSAGE

Just because you don't have chronic pain doesn't mean you can't have a massage.  Massage can help you unwind from a stressful week or just relax.
