Swedish Massage is both relaxing and therapeutic. I employ techniques from of other massage modalities such as Deep Tissue and Reflexology wherever it may benefit the Client. The proven and experienced benefits of massage include relaxation, pain relief, decreased stress levels in the body, enhanced mental clarity, and greater flexibility.
Receiving massage affords you the opportunity to spend a quiet hour "undoing;" which can be in itself a restorative experience.

I am Certified in Pre-Natal Massage Therapy by MotherTouch Massage Therapy.

Thai Foot Reflexology
Thai Foot Reflexology is a luxurious, formalized sequence of various strokes and pointwork applied from tips of the feet to tops of the knees. Affecting all the body's sen lines (similar to Chinese meridians) Thai Reflexology produces a deep feeling of relaxation, balance, and well-being. Some enjoy Thai Reflexology's convenience, because it is done with the client fully clothed. Bring or wear comfortable pants that can be easily rolled up for access above the knee.
Reflexology is a type of bodywork that focuses on applying specific kinds of pressure to zones on your feet and hands. Its aim is to harmonize the entire system, allowing the wisdom of the body to operate. Ongoing research indicates Reflexology can be effective for a variety of conditions including insomnia, digestive discomfort, and overall stress reduction.
Chair massage is a popular way of relieving stress and releasing tension at the workplace. It is done in a specialized ergonomically-designed chair, which I supply. In addition to the usual health benefits of massage, chair massage is done with the client fully clothed. Chair Massage sessions are usually shorter than traditional massage, making it convenient to fit into your busy workday.
