Therapeutic Bodywork-Massage/Swedish Massage
As I have said in other parts of this site, I always endeavor to give my clients what they want which means each session is geared toward client needs/request, which includes information I have gathered during your initial intake session, in addition to what is specified on any medical referral. If you see me for more than a single session, I endeavor to personalize each massage to what is happening on any given day. Always remember your massage/bodywork session is for and about you. From purely Swedish Relaxation massage which employs lighter strokes and possibly work to hands or feet (for increased relaxation effect), to deeper work focusing on particular body areas, I proactively work to craft a massage that fits you. Although we will discuss/agree--prior to each session--exactly what we will be working on, always feel free to let me know during the massage, if you are uncomfortable, would like something different, or anything else that you feel would make your session better and more workable for you. Note: During some types of body/therapeutic work we may Need to speak during your session so I can be aware of depth—pain levels—etc. (eg. for Trigger point, PRT etc.)

For folks who want therapeutic and not purely relaxation work, my therapeutic bodywork sessions are more combinations of: myofascial, some deep tissue--but more fascial work these days, energy (as in acupressure meridian) work, Reflexology work when requested and possibly Positional Release work as well. I have also found that deeper/therapeutic massages in general, are enhanced by joint movement and stretching.

All of my massages are grounded in my intuition and intertwined with my own special brand of energy work, taken in part from my Shiatsu training.

Of course as a licensed massage therapist, I do only non-sexual massage.

Positional Release Therapy (PRT)
PRT is a bodywork technique developed by a Doctor of Osteopathy. It reduces pain and inflammation, releases chronic muscle tension, and increases range of motion. Tender points on bony articulations or muscles are isolated and subsequently released by finding the body position which “turns off” the nerve impulses which cause pain. If we do a session which is exclusively PRT, you will wear loose fitting or stretchy clothing and will be on top of the massage table without a cover sheet unless requested. This work is very relaxing. In addition to stopping the pain signals, there is an increase in blood-flow to the treated joints and increased flexibility to the attached muscles. After a PRT session, clients feel pain relief in the affected areas. Many times they express a feeling of lightness while moving and openness in previously restricted area. This technique requires a certain amount of communication between client and therapist, so it will not be a silent session. Results may vary person to person for PRT. Sometimes, after a single session pain relief will last 5 days, or sometimes up to 3 weeks. In order to gain the most from this technique it is important to do a series of 3-5 sessions with 7-14 days between each session. For most people, it takes at least this many times turning off the points to achieve good results as there are a number of different factors that contribute to the points returning or staying turned off.

Pre-Natal Massage – Pregnancy massage addresses the special needs of the expectant mother. I follow all safety precautions and use pillows and props which help you feel comfortable and supported. You will feel at ease, and experience deep relaxation and relief from muscle soreness/tension.
