BENEFITS OF MASSAGE

Experts estimate that upwards of ninety percent of disease is stress-related. And perhaps nothing ages us faster, internally and externally, than high stress. Massage is an effective tool for managing this stress, which translates into:

  • Decreased anxiety.
  • Enhanced sleep quality.
  • Greater energy.
  • Improved concentration.
  • Increased circulation.
  • Reduced fatigue.

Massage can also help specifically address a number of health issues. Bodywork can:

  • Alleviate low-back pain and improve range of motion.
  • Assist with shorter, easier labor for expectant mothers and shorten maternity hospital stays.
  • Ease medication dependence.
  • Enhance immunity by stimulating lymph flow—the body's natural defense system.
  • Exercise and stretch weak, tight, or atrophied muscles.
  • Help athletes of any level prepare for, and recover from, strenuous workouts.
  • Improve the condition of the body's largest organ—the skin.
  • Increase joint flexibility.
  • Lessen depression and anxiety.
  • Promote tissue regeneration, reducing scar tissue and stretch marks.
  • Pump oxygen and nutrients into tissues and vital organs, improving circulation.
  • Reduce post surgery adhesions and swelling.
  • Reduce spasms and cramping.
  • Relax and soften injured, tired, and overused muscles.
  • Release endorphins—amino acids that work as the body's natural painkiller.
  • Relieve migraine pain.

Pierre et Fleur (Hot Stone) Massage     $90/hr         $120/1½ hrs         

Imagine lying on a bed of warm, smooth stones, while oils are massaged into your skin using more warm, smooth stones!  The healing combination of stones and flowers nurtures the body, mind and spirit.  This is the essence of Pierre et Fleur Massage.

  

Relaxation Massage                             $80/hr          $110/1½ hrs       

Come away from this session feeling relaxed yet rejuvenated.  Massage techniques here employ slower, longer, and very fluid strokes applied with a lighter touch.  This method promotes and enhances deep relaxation.  It is not uncommon for clients to enter a dream-like state or even fall asleep!

 

Chakra Balancing Massage     $80/hr          $110/1½ hrs       

We begin with a Deep Tissue  Massage, focusing on the back and legs.  We incorporate essential oils meant to open and balance the chakras.  We guide you through a meditation focusing on each chakra; this activates both sides of the brain.  We finish with a Foot Reflexology and Scalp Massage.  This combination of techniques will leave you feeling relaxed and focused!

 

Raindrop Therapy Session                   $110/approximately 90 minutes

Raindrop Therapy session combines the use of calming, energizing and soothing essential oils, acupressure and massage techniques to relieve stress, align energy and bring harmonious balance to every system of the body.

I use the Young Living brand oils and Raindrop Technique which “is the result of combining ancient Lakota wisdom with the latest in essential oil research.  By integrating gentle massage sequences with specific essential oils, Young Living has created an experience that balances energy, releases toxins, and facilitates open energy flow throughout the body.”

I also incorporate Reiki into the session while the warm compresses are applied to the back of the body.

 

Deep Tissue Massage                          $90/hr          $120/1½ hrs        

Deep tissue work is not necessarily deep as much as specific and slow. The intent is to massage a specific muscle in a slow, focused manner using either a lengthening stroke (with the muscle fibers), or a broadening stroke (across the muscle fibers).  Deep tissue is beneficial for chronic pain, limited mobility, and repetitive strain injuries (i.e.. Carpal Tunnel Syndrome).  Deep tissue focuses on realigning deeper layers of muscles and connective tissue.

  

 Restorative Yoga Massage                     $80/hr          $110/1½ hrs

Restorative Yoga heavily uses props to hold the body in poses, thus allowing the body to relax into the secure support and hold the poses for longer periods of time.  This is a very gentle, relaxing yet powerful practice.  We have combined this powerful practice with the benefit of massage to create a most relaxing and unique experience.

 

Reiki Massage                                     $80/hr          $110/1½ hrs         

Reiki literally means "divinely guided life force energy".  It works on the energetic level of the body to help alleviate dis-ease on the physical level.  The massage involves deep tissue on the legs and back and specific movements to align with Reiki energy, as well as limited foot reflexology and a scalp massage.  Reiki sessions are also available without massage.
