  Therapeutic Massage promotes soft tissue health by providing chronic pain relief, stress reduction, relaxation, athlete performance maintenance, and injury prevention and recovery. A typical table session addresses the front and back sides of the body for a complete therapeutic massage.  Half hour sessions are normally reserved for problem areas requiring specific attention, i.e., neck and shoulders; a sports injury.  My massage practice integrates several therapeutic modalities to fit your needs.  

Myofascial Release (MFR)
 

MFR treatments use gentle but firm sustained pressure and movement techniques on myofascial restrictions in our fascial system which is located all throughout the body, surrounding and supporting our muscles, vessels, nerves… all the way down to the cellular level.  Myofascial restrictions are the result of injuries, inflammation, and trauma accumulated throughout one’s lifetime, which may result in pain, loss of strength, and/or flexibility.  The goal is to release these restrictions allowing for the exchange of nutrients and the elimination of waste products thereby, rehydrating and restoring tissue health and movement.


Deep Tissue Massage
  Deep Tissue therapy treatments integrate various techniques such as compression, stretches, and joint mobilization to discover deeper muscular problems. Adhesions, trigger points, and postural distortions cause soft tissue tension, dysfunction, and pain which may be attributed to stress, overuse, injury, and/or illness. The goal is to restore tissue health and movement.

Sports Massage
  Sports Massage therapy treatments typically focus on muscle groups associated with the athlete's sport to aid in optimal movement, performance, and recovery. The techniques are also used with nonathletes on specific problem areas of the body like the low back, upper back, and shoulders. The goal of this therapy is to eliminate knots, adhesions, and muscular waste products that inhibit movement for full range of motion.

Relaxation Massage
  Relaxation therapy aids in the release of muscular tension through gliding, kneading, and smoothing massage strokes. The soothing massage can relieve fatigue, calm the nervous system, and promote a sense of relaxation and renewed energy.

Massage treatment sessions run from one half-hour to two hours and are tailored to meet your individual needs. Instruction in self care techniques is provided to enable you to be a vital part of your recovery and prolonged health.  An on site chair massage session typically last 10-20 minutes per individual.

Massage Sessions:
One hour $70; half-hour $40; One and one half-hour $100
Chair Massage sessions:
$1/minute; your location/event on-site minimum $50


Chair Massage
 

Looking for ways to improve the wellness benefits 
for your employees?

Chair massage is a portable and convenient therapy typically done at the work site or a special event. The practitioner massages through the client's clothes and works the neck, back, and shoulders in about 10-15 minutes. The body/mind benefits of chair massage relieves stress and muscle tension, promotes a relaxed state of mental alertness, and incorporates a general sense of well-being.

The practitioner will come to your location and set up in a conference room or a quiet area that will allow the employee a chance to relax and receive the full benefit of the massage. Studies indicate that chair massage and stretch techniques will help prevent repetitive injuries and reduce worker absenteeism.

Chair Massage enhances company wellness programs, special events, employee of the month awards, and customer appreciation days.
