Massage

Massage Therapy

Swedish: This style utilizes long, flowing strokes, often but not necessarily in the direction of the heart. Swedish massage is designed to increase circulation and blood flow.

Deep Tissue: Deep tissue techniques are generally designed for more focused massage work. Working a specific joint, muscle or muscle group, the therapist can access deeper layers of the soft tissue.

Neuromuscular Therapy (NMT): This type of massage is used for pain relief and specific problems, which are addressed through systematic and site specific massage. NMT reduces pain, tension, postural imbalance, and lengthens and strengthens tissues.

Reflexology: The practice of stimulating points on the feet, hands, or ears (termed reflex zones), which results in a beneficial effect on other specific parts of the body, and to improve general health.

Lymphatic Detox Massage: This gentle, rhythmical massage encourages the lymphatic system to eliminate metabolic waste products, excess fluid and bacteria, which in turn promotes detoxification, facilitates healing and supports the immune system.

Along with essential oils, I use ointments to soothe aching muscles and organic, all-natural oils, gels and lotions.
