I practice a blend of modalities (Swedish, Shiatsu, Deep Tissue, myofascial release) to provide you with a more holistic approach while addressing your individual needs. Complimentary aromatherapy is included for all sessions.
Shiatsu is based on the philosophies of traditional Chinese medicine, which focuses on promoting the healthy flow of "qi" (life force energy) throughout the body . During this session, I place pressure on specific points on the body to disperse any blockage of qi and promote balance. Complimentary aromatherapy included.
Prenatal massage focuses on the changing needs of pregnant people. It promotes better blood flow for expecting parent and baby, helps reduce swelling at the extremities and joints, and can alleviate lower back pain. Client enjoys their massage in a side-lying position with proper support to maximize comfort. Complimentary aromatherapy included.

MANUAL LYMPHATIC DRAINAGE MASSAGE
MLD is used to assist the body in flushing out waste, toxins, and extra fluid by activating the lymphatic system- the body's waste management system. Breathing techniques, along with long gentle strokes, are practiced to stimulate the lymphatic system and promote more effective detoxification.
MLD has shown to reduce swelling, improve circulation, reduce anxiety and even help boost the immune system.
