Swedish Massage is a very relaxing and therapeutic style of bodywork. It combines oils or lotion with an array of strokes such as rolling, kneading, and percussion to help the body improve its circulation. The benefits of this type of bodywork are wide-ranging and include relief from aches and pains, decreased stress levels in the body, enhanced mental clarity, improved appearance, and greater flexibility.
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.
Sports Massage is a type of massage designed for highly active people who engage in athletics. Engaging in sports is harsh on the body and can often lead to injuries in both the short and long term. Sports Massage enhances performance and prolongs a sports career by helping to prevent injury, reduce pains and swelling in the body, relax the mind, increase flexibility, and dramatically improve recovery rates. Sports Massage is also highly effective in aiding the rapid recovery of an athlete from an injury by encouraging greater kinesthetic awareness and in turn promoting the body’s natural immune function.
MYOSKELETAL ALIGNMENT-created by Erik Dalton PH.D. This training has evolved from "Structural Integration", or also known as a form of "Rolfing"! This relationship continues to grow as bodyworkers have intergrated massage and pain management solutions with manual therapy.
Prolonged posture stress leads to functional changes, such as; loss of flexabilty; Hyper/hypo mobility; Edema; Myofacial Trigger Points; Muscle Spasm; Muscle Testing Weakness; Recurrent Pain Patterns; Shallow Breathing; Chronic Fatigue; and Digestive/Hormonal Disorders.
Assessing by tissue (massage) and postural-pattern clues, these specific techniques can alleviate these problems and make large to subtle changes in health problems. Overall improvement of posture may be time consuming and frequently neglected, however with hands on structural Myoskeletal Alignment Techniques, long lasting results will contribute to the goal of "perfect posture".
This technique was developed by Tom Myers the author of Anatomy Trains-Myofascial Meridians. He was a student of Ida P. Rolf the pioneer of "Structural Intergration".
KMI is similiar to massage therapy by the using hands to engage the tissue, but this technique focuses on the connective tissue (Fascia) the endless web throughout our entire structure. The fascia can store long held patterns of strain, habit, and even emotions.
The series of sessions are designed for each clients needs, and goals! A session includes postural assessement, bodywork, and breathing techniques together. The manual movement of any 12 Myofascial Meridians are safe, effective, and long-lasting with stetching and specific changing of habits.
Medical Massage differs from regular Massage and Bodywork in that the treatment is specifically directed to resolve conditions diagnosed by a medical doctor. I may use a variety of modalities or techniques during the treatment, but I focus the treatment only on the specific areas of the body related to the diagnosis. This enhances the body’s natural self-healing process and reduces the needed recovery time from injury.
The list for medical conditions do vary due to contraindications of the clients health, such as Auto Immune Diseases, Cardiovascular, or Lymphatic Disorders. This is the main reason to have a working health team to monitor results.

Herbal Chinese Massage Cupping
In Traditional Chinese Medicine, stationary cups are placed on the skin and left for a period of five to fifteen minutes, and the cups may also be moved over the area. The goal of Chinese cupping is to move stagnation of blood and chi, disperse internal heat, and other applications based on TCM. Traditional cupping therapies are used in many cultures on both adults and children for respiratory conditions and pain relief.
In Herbal Massage Cupping, an herbal liniment is placed on the affected area and then a cup in added to facilitate healing with several structures of the body. For example this is used for martial art athletes that have taken many hits, and also fascial problems that could lead to chronic pain. This therapy is used to soften tight muscles and tone attachments, loosen adhesions and lift connective tissue, bring hydration and blood flow to body tissues, and drain excess fluids and toxins by opening lymphatic pathways.
