Swedish, the “Classic Massage”

The good old basic swedish massage is not basic in results.  It has health benefits from neurological deep unwinding to tactile sensations of extreme relaxation. If you are wanting more emotional balance this is the massage for you.  It provides mental and physical balance creating emotional well being.  A good therapist will have a good flow to their touch using the 5 strokes in Swedish: efflurage (sliding or gliding), petrissage (kneading), tapotement (rhythmic tapping), friction (cross fiber), and vibration (shaking)

Deep Tissue

Should be called Deep Pressure or more pressure.  Most people will say they want Deep Tissue Massage.  It is common that people want more pressure used during a Swedish style massage.  Deep Tissue is realigning deeper layers of muscles and connective tissue. It is especially helpful for chronically tense and contracted areas such as stiff necks, low back tightness, and sore shoulders.

Some of the same strokes are used as classic Swedish massage, but the movement is slower and the pressure is deeper and concentrated on areas of tension and pain.  Breathing and communication of pain levels are used.

Trigger Point Therapy

This is the type of work I most enjoy during a session with you. I love getting to the pain areas and working them out; at your comfortability level.

Trigger points are described as hyperirritable spots in skeletal muscle that are associated with palpable nodules in taut bands of muscle fibers. Trigger point researchers believe that palpable nodules are small contraction knots and a common cause of pain. Compression of a trigger point may elicit local tenderness, referred pain, or local twitch response. The local twitch response is not the same as a muscle spasm. This is because a muscle spasm refers to the entire muscle entirely contracting whereas the local twitch response also refers to the entire muscle but only involves a small twitch, no contraction.

Trigger Point Therapy can relieve muscular aches and pains in association with these areas. It can also assist with the redevelopment of muscles and/or restore motion to joints. This is what I am talking about !!

Reflexology

Reflexology is used in every session.  It sets me a part from the foot rub that is expected.  It is a shorter sequence giving a true taste of a Reflexology Session.

The vast majority of people usually realize the benefits of reducing stress which in turn minimizes physical symptoms. Reflexology in conjunction with other forms of therapies complements ongoing medical treatments. This equates as a safe modality.

A complete Reflexology session is performed on both feet. The session, depending upon what is required, will last 45 to 60 minutes.Using a firm pressure, the reflexes are worked according to the client’s requirements. Stress removal is the first priority followed by enhancing circulation. Reflexology is not meant to inflict pain and common sense dictates when less pressure is required.

Myofascial Release Massage

A Wikipedia definition: The direct myofascial release (or deep tissue work) method engages the myofascial tissue “restrictive barrier” (tension). The tissue is loaded with a constant force until release occurs.[1] Practitioners use knuckles, elbows, or other tools to slowly stretch the restricted fascia by applying a few kilograms-force or tens of newtons. Direct myofascial release is an attempt to bring about changes in the myofascial structures by stretching or elongation of fascia, or mobilizing adhesive tissues. The practitioner moves slowly through the layers of the fascia until the deep tissues are reached.

No oil is used and I often give a sample of this technique when asked.  This is for the result oriented person who has an issue holding them back from movement and quality of life.  This is usually never done in a first session and yields great results.

Hot Rocks

This is a natural therapy in which warmed stones are positioned on the clients body to maximize the therapeutic benefit.  The stones used are one of two types: River Rocks or Basalt Rocks both smooth sanitized and heated for use.

I always have my rocks ready if you ever want to add a little extra spot treatment to your session.

A full Hot Rock Massage involves 50-80 stones! The stones are placed at specific points on the back, in the palms of the hand, or between the toes.  I use the rocks to massage the whole body in a Swedish style massage; I can also use them in tense areas to sooth pain using deep pressure or trigger point therapy.

Reiki

While Reiki is spiritual in nature, it is not a religion. It has no dogma, and there is nothing you must believe in order to learn or use Reiki. In fact, Reiki is not dependent on belief at all and will work whether you believe in it or not. Because Reiki comes from God, a higher power, or whatever term you use it fits. Many people find that using Reiki puts them more in touch with the experience of their religion rather than having only an intellectual concept of it.

Now, onto what happens during a Reiki session.  You remain clothed.  You will close your eyes. We will both be quiet. You will feel me lay my hands on certain parts of your body which are 7 chakra points. I am allowing energy to flow through me and to you from a higher energy source. It is totally non invasive and I am always willing to give a sample of Reiki before or after your session.
