Massage Therapy

Swedish Massage

Massage provides much needed relief from the hustle and bustle of life. Regular massage ensures that muscle spasms and knots are easily released and muscles, ligaments, tendons and joints enjoy greater flexibility. Swedish massage can be relaxing or therapeutic depending on your specific needs. Pressure is adjusted to each clients comfort level. The 90 & 60 minute treatments consists of a full body massage and aromatherapy. A 90 minute massage is recommended to anyone with specific needs or problem areas. I also offer 30 minute massages for those who would like to target specific areas in a short amount of time.

Pregnancy Massage

Pregnancy massage helps focus on the needs of the mother-to-be as her body goes through the dramatic changes of the child-bearing experience. Massage pleasantly and effectively eliminates many of the adverse effects of stress and its accompanying discomforts. It is a potent way to take charge of your pregnancy, reclaiming your birthright and is a sensuous, relaxing and loving treatment which is especially good for both you and your baby.

Massage can be received in all stages of pregnancy: prenatal, labor and delivery, post-cesarean recovery and postpartum. Consult with your healthcare provider before making appointment.

Hot Stone Massage

Hot stone massage is the ultimate in pampering your body. Imagine, lying on a table with warm stones nestled between your toes and placed on various points on your body. The warmth of the stones deeply relaxes your body and your mind.

The direct heat sinks into muscles, allowing manipulation of a greater intensity than with regular massage, while creating a feeling of warmth and comfort. This treatment has helped relieve the pain of fibromyalgia. When used alone or in conjunction with aromatherapy it is very efficient at loosening respiratory congestion.

Allow for a 70 minute treatment.

Infant Massage

Infant massage is an easy and pleasant way to provide love, touch, and nuturing comfort in early development. It helps strengthen and regulate digestive, respiratory and circulatory development, and can relieve gas and colic symptoms. This class helps promote confidence (especially in new parents) and give the information necessary to calm and relax your new baby.

This class is offered 2-4 times a year.  Private lessons by appointment. Call with your name and address and I will put you on a list to send an invitation to you when the next class is coming up.                             

Labor Massage and Support

Massage during labor is a wonderful way to enhance the birthing experience. It can reduce the need for medical intervention such as pain medication, epidural, episiotomies, and cesarean birth, and decrease the pain experienced during a contraction especially when experiencing back labor.

Labor support is not intended to take away the support role from your partner, but to support everyone during this special time.

Reiki

Reiki is a universal energy which we all have. The energy is directed to go wherever the highest good will come of it. I see myself as a conduit from the body to the earth. A session usually leaves the recipient with a glowing feeling of warmth and well rested.
