Deep Tissue Massage
Deep tissue massage focuses on realigning deeper layers of muscles and connective tissue. It is especially helpful for chronic aches and pains. Some of the same strokes are used as in therapeutic massage but the movement is slower and the pressure is deeper and concentrated on areas of tension and pain in order to reach the sub-layer of muscles and the fascia.

Reflexology approaches the body as a complete macrocosm with interrelated systems. It is a holistic discipline which uses the therapist’s hands to apply alternating and firm pressure to stimulate physiological changes in the body. By applying therapeutic pressure to specific points on the hands and feet the zone reflex points and meridian points are activated, this creates beneficial responses in the nervous, electrical and chemical systems. As a “scientific art” reflexology is based on research regarding stress reduction, pain reduction, improvement in blood pressure, support therapy for cancer treatment, post-operative recovery and mitigation of neuro-physical and auto-immune dysfunctions. Reflexology feels good, but it is much more than a good foot massage!

We store our life experiences in our bodies. The craniosacral fluid carries the body’s innate intelligence from the brain to the sacrum and throughout the whole system in a series of rhythms. As the practitioner listens to and guides these rhythms through gentle touch, the body can easily unlock and release the residue of trauma stored in the tissues. During a session, you rest fully clothed on a massage table, feeling a light touch as the practitioner monitors your craniosacral rhythm by placing their hands on various meridian points on your body. This gentle technique corrects the sources of pain and dysfunction, allowing the body freedom to heal itself efficiently. As stressors are removed, the body relaxes and is able to find its optimal, balanced state. CST effectively addresses all imbalances, including nervousness, anxiety, addictions, insomnia, pain and injury. Craniosacral enhances the mind-body connection, creating a deep sense of balance, relaxation and ease in the nervous system. After CST sessions, clients have reported experiencing clarity, peacefulness and insight along with the obvious positive change in their physical symptoms.

Chakra Yoga Therapy
YOUR FIRST SESSION includes the Chakra Assessment, a diagnostic protocol for determining the energy levels and inter-functioning of each chakra.

(Please note, this might take several sessions to achieve/incorporate this balance.)
The CHAKRA SERIES Sessions:
In these sessions we dive deeply into one particular chakra per session and use the specific Chakra Yoga tools and techniques of pranayama, mantra, yantra, kriya, and asana to experience, energize, and explore deeply that aspect of consciousness in our physical, mental, emotional, developmental, spiritual, and energetic selves. At the end of each session clients are given reference materials to support their personal practice. These Chakra Sessions can be combined with a Sound Therapy component including crystal bowls, toning, tuning forks, and healing mantras and can also incorporate RESTORATIVE YOGA postures.
The CHAKRA TUNE-UP Session:

This technique is commonly called palm healing or light healing. The technique is based on the idea that an unseen life force energy, qi or ki, flows through us and is what causes us to be alive. The practitioner uses the palms to transfer this universal energy to the client. Reiki has been used to alleviate stress, blocked energy flow, and to promote relaxation and self-healing. Reiki allows for a state of equilibrium. If one’s “life force energy” is low, then we are more likely to get sick or feel stress, and if it is high, we are more capable of living vibrantly and healthfully. (60 min $75)

“Mother Roasting” Postpartum Massage Session
Mother roasting is a rejuvenating postpartum treatment performed about two weeks after the delivery of your new baby. My treatment uses hot stones and heated essential oils to help nourish your Qi (vital energy) and Blood. You will leave feeling renewed, rested and balanced.
This treatment is aimed at supporting the new mother, rather than the newborn. During the birthing experience a woman will have used vital resources often leaving her feeling exhausted, under-nourished, lacking in energy, and often weepy due to the hormonal fluctuations. My treatment utilizes the body’s own healing mechanisms, encouraging the rejuvenation and circulation of blood and vital energy which are essential to support a new mother. New moms tend to leave the session feeling enriched, deeply fortified and more able physically and mentally to cope with the postpartum period. The treatment has a secondary effect on the newborn as the mother will be more relaxed, rejuvenated and happy, therefore passing this state of equilibrium onto her new baby/babies.
