Personalized for you
Using a variety of modalities, including (but not limited to) Deep Tissue, Swedish, Thai, Ashiatsu, and Reiki, we will address your specific bodywork needs, whether it be full body relaxation, or specific work focussed on injuries and other aches and pains.
Deep work done with the feet
Meaning “foot” (ashi) “pressure” (atsu), ashiatsu is a deeply relaxing and therapeutic massage performed with the therapist’s feet. People often have a hard time deciphering whether they are feeling hands or feet. Because of the length and strength of the legs, the therapist can apply long, deep strokes that start at the feet, coming up over the back, and down the arm. The feet also have a larger surface area than hands so deeper pressure is more relaxing than it might be using a thumb or elbow.
Ashiatsu is a great relaxation massage, but can also be a great way the help lengthen the sore muscles of cyclists, runners, dancers, and yogis. Ashiatsu is not recommended for pregnant women, or anyone with Osteoperosis.
for the expecting mother
Massage during pregnancy focuses on the specific needs of the mother-to-be as her body goes through the childbirth experience. Pre-natal massage enhances the function of the muscles and joints, improves circulation and general body tone, helps to reduce fluid retention, and relieves mental and physical fatigue, Not to mention, it just plain feels good. there are many other benefits for the mom-to-be and her baby, too. Touch is vital to the mother’s physical and emotional well-being as she adapts to her changing body. Massage gives the mother-to-be the special attention she deserves, which in turn nurtures the new life growing inside her.
Massage during pregnancy is usually safe for most mothers. Please contact me if you are having any complications so that we can determine whether massage is right for you at this time.
