Deep Tissue Massage therapy reaches deeper layers of muscles. It is used to break down spasms and scar tissue and also to relieve painful pressure points throughout the body. Deep tissue therapeutic massage can be uncomfortable at times but should never be painful. On a scale of 1-10, it should never be above a very temporary 6.
Orthopedic/Medical massage is a style of therapeutic massage focused on treating painful conditions that affect the soft tissues of the body. Because orthopedic massage is designed to treat orthopedic and medical conditions, it requires extensive training. It involves releasing tense muscles, helping to stretch and lengthen tight muscles and tendons, and decompress rigid joints. It often combines deep tissue massage & myofascial release . My goal is to restore full health and function to the soft tissues, both treating your specific conditions as well as improving your overall well-being.
Myofascial Release is a therapeutic massage technique used to treat injuries and discomfort, reduce pain and increase range of motion. Myofascial release differs from other types of massage in that it targets the fascia - the membrane surrounding muscles - rather than the muscle itself. Since fascia completely encases every muscle in the body, imbalances in the fascia can have serious restrictive effects on your range of motion.
Lymphatic Drainage Therapy massage aims to gently and rhythmically move the lymph through the body, especially swollen areas of the body, relieving pressure and enhancing the function of the immune system. As both a preventative and remedial massage technique, MLD can be used for a wide range of purposes including faster recovery from surgery or injury, reduction of swelling and discomfort from pregnancy, and strengthened resistance to illness.
Oncology Massage therapy is a special type of therapeutic massage developed specifically for people with cancer . People fighting cancer and new survivors have unique needs which must be addressed to make sure that a massage is beneficial to their health. I focus my attention on creating a gentle, nurturing environment for you to relax. As a cancer survivor myself, I understand how important it is to have a sacred space to reduce stress and anxiety, and bridge the disconnect between mind and body.
Elder massage therapy is a therapeutic massage designed to meet the specific needs of seniors. It helps to improve blood circulation, relieve pain, and also increase range of motion.

In addition, this massage can also help alleviate symptoms of loneliness or depression. Comfortable, supportive bolstering is available.
