Sessions and Goals
When I begin a session, I ask, “What can I do for you today?” and that is the essence of my bodywork practice. Whether we are addressing complex musculoskeletal issues or the need for deep relaxation, every client deserves a unique, beautiful, mindful session.
Day-to-day stresses and neck kinks all need to be worked out in deeper, firmer massage, but the mind and heart also need to relax. A graceful, flowing, Swedish- and Esalen-inspired oil massage, blending in pockets of focused, therapeutic deep tissue work, I smooth tight muscles throughout your body as I find them, releasing stress and bringing you back to yourself.
Deeper Fascia Work
Athletic injuries and repetitive stress trauma can take a toll on your body. With a heavier emphasis on therapeutic deep tissue modalities, like Myofascial Release, Trigger Point Therapy, and Passive Joint Mobilization, the goals are less about relaxation and more about improving pain, joint mobility (range of motion), and alignment. I blend these modalities to find, open, and mend stubborn knots and balance muscle tone, bringing comfortable ease and mobility.
Opening and calming the muscles of a badly damaged shoulder, for instance, is a detailed process that can easily use an entire session. Most clients have several areas of focus, such as hips, shoulders, forearms, and feet. These sessions usually consist of a combination of many massage and stretching modalities to release knots and fascial adhesions.
Relax and Unwind
Take a moment to unwind and breathe with a Swedish- and Esalen-inspired oil massage. A graceful, meditative dance of long, cascading, sinuous massage set to calming, melodic music, to melt away the accumulated anxiety and tension to rejuvenate and unwind.
