Modalities

As a Massage Therapist and a practitioner of holisitic living, I strongly believe in the necessity of multi- dimensional approaches to the balancing of one’s well being. I am an integrative body worker, in that the techniques I use are customized in accordance to what the client needs during the particular session. These techniques include Neuromuscular and Trigger point, Myofascial release and Connective Tissue, Cranial Sacral, and Swedish.

Neuromuscular and Trigger point

By definition, Neuromuscular Therapy is the utilization of static pressure on specific myofascial points to relieve pain. This technique manipulates the soft tissue of the body (muscles, tendons and connective tissue) to balance the central nervous system.

Myofascial Release and Connective Tissue technique

Works with soft tissue to increase range of motion, and relax constricting and painful areas in the body. It releases tense muscles, increases circulation, drains lymph, and stimulates the stretch reflex of muscles and the overlying fascia.  *This area of work is more necessary when there has been an injury in the body.

CranioSacral therapy

Is a gentle, hands on approach that releases tensions deep in the body to relieve pain and improve whole-body health and function. Using pressure no heavier the weight of a nickel, CranioSacral therapy works with the soft tissues that surround the central nervous system. It is an excellent preventive health measure against disease and a wide range of medical problems, associated with pain and dysfunction.

Swedish Massage

Incorporates a few different techniques including petrissage, effleurage and tapotement. These forms of massage are important for increasing circulation, flushing out toxins in the body, relaxing the muscle belly, and reducing all- over pain.
