The main focus of my work is Good Health & Healing Through Massage. What this means to you as a client is that I will always make your well being my priority. I specialize in Deep Tissue Massage through Myofacial, neuromuscular and Trigger Point Therapy as needed. Upon request I will also provide stretching of legs, hips, low back, shoulders arms and chest muscles. The stretching that I provide as a body worker is more than one can do on their own as I am able to get the leverage that one can't get on their own in order to stretch these muscle groups.
I am also versed in Rehab Fitness, Sacral Cranial, Acupressure, Shiatsu, Reflexology, Sports massage & Hydro Therapy.
Keep in mind that if you would like massage with stretching it does require a 90 minute session as massage takes an hour and stretching usually takes about 30 minutes additional.
Many people think of massage as a luxury, however having a good massage therapist that provides the type of body work that I do can help truly enhance your life, through relaxation as well as refocusing the bodies energy.
