Phenomenal Touch Massage
Phenomenal Touch integrates Thai Massage stretches, movement, and undulation of the spine, and uses gravity and body weight rather than strength to acquire depth and pressure. It is a magnificent dance of reverence.
Deep-tissue Massage and Assisted Stretching!
Releasing adhesions that can limit range-of-motion. Specific techniques include Neuromuscular Massage, Trigger Point Therapy, Muscle Stripping, Myofascial Release work. I apply deep-tissue techniques with awareness, sensitivity around the specific work. Muscle Energy Techniques reset contracted muscles. I love offering Assisted stretching, it can increase your pain-free range of motion substantially.
Manual Therapy, Orthopedic and Medical Massage
Treating TMJ, Whiplash/Car Accident cases, and other conditions, Passive Positional Release techniques are used to calm spasming muscles. Basic Manual Lymph Drainage (a non-invasive, light-touch therapy) gently flushes out swelling. Deep-tissue and Muscle Energy Techniques release chronic muscle tension, stretch shortened muscles and tendons, and decompress joints, normalizing your musculoskeletal system to restore pain-free movement.
Sense yourself in a fresh way. Combining a depth of training in Therapeutic Massage Therapy with my abundant soul of nurturing touch, I may guide you to follow your breath, notice different parts of your body, and trust your intuition to allow your body to stretch or move as you wish. We journey together to release old holding patterns and renew your mind-body-spirit connection!
