Therapeutic Approach: I ask you to approach therapy with an open mind because where the pain presents is oftentimes not the source of the pain.

I take a fascial release approach to therapy. I believe that in order to find lasting relief it is key to find the root of the problem. We will begin with a thorough postural assessment to determine the root of the muscle imbalance. During your initial visit we will spend at least 30 minutes conducting manual muscle testing (MMT) and formulating a treatment plan. The goal of our treatment plan is to help minimize your pain and to design a plan where we work together to achieve long-term effects.

Treatment sessions may include any combination of the treatments below:

ASHIATSU – Translates into “foot pressure” Therapist utilizes a bar system and their feet, broader tools, which warm the tissues faster and sinking deeper more consistently by allowing the whole body to work with gravity with the application of 3x the pressure.

SARGA is as beautiful as it is effective, this barefoot technique employs the use of a fabric strap fastened to a massage table to deliver therapeutic myofascial and deep tissue techniques. These techniques, combined with the broad contact surface of the foot, help to stimulate length, hydration, detoxification, and relaxation in the recipient’s body.

MYOFASCIAL release is a form of soft tissue therapy intended to eliminate pain, increase range of motion, and rebalance the entire body. It does this by using massage techniques to stretch the fascia and release the bonds that exist between the fascia, muscles and bones. Fascia is the connective tissue that connects and covers all muscles, organs, and skeletal structures of the body. Direct myofascial release is sometimes known as deep tissue work. Indirect release applies light pressure and gently stretches the fascia; this allows for increased blood circulation and relief from pain.

DEEP TISSUE MASSAGE is a form of bodywork that aims to relieve tension in the deeper layers of tissue in the body. Deep Tissue Massage is a highly effective method for releasing chronic stress areas due to misalignment, repetitive motions, and past lingering injuries. Due to the nature of the deep tissue work, open communication during the session is crucial to make sure you don't get too uncomfortable. Keep in mind that soreness is pretty common after the treatment, and that plenty of water should be ingested to aid with the flushing and removal of toxins that will have been released from the deep tissue during the session.

ORTHOPEDIC BODYWORK is a style of massage therapy focused on treating painful conditions that affect the soft tissues of the body. Because orthopedic massage is designed to treat medical conditions, it requires extensive training. It involves releasing tense muscles, helping to stretch and lengthen tight muscles and tendons, and decompress rigid joints. My goal is to restore full health to the soft tissues of your body, both treating your specific conditions as well as improving your overall well-being.

THAI YOGA MASSAGE this ancient Eastern modality has been practiced for over 1000 years and is a member of family of Orietal bodywork. Thai massage is historically a mat-based sequence of soft tissue compression, stretching, traction, accupressure, rotations, and deep breathing which helps improve posture and flexibility. This flowing and rhythic practice is beneficial for anyone looking to increase range of motion and flexibility. The receiver remains clothed during the practice. Please wear thin and comfortable clothing.

CUPPING has been around for at least 5000 years. This eastern medicine approach is one of the most effective ways to release fascia allowing for improved tissue health. We work glass, silicone, and plastic vacuum cups for fire cupping, static and dynamic cupping. The main purpose of this ancient negative pressure technique is to disperse congestion of Qi (life force), invigorate the blood, and encourage the body to revitalize and return to balance.

But what about those “bruises”? The cupping marks are temporary and indicate good things are happening below the skin. Fresh oxygenated blood and Qi are invited to move into the muscles to begin the healing process.
