styles of massage

swedish
(IPSB/esalen style)

a variation of the traditional Swedish massage. Using long flowing strokes the focus is on relieving pain and increasing mobility in specific muscles, joints, etc. We approach the body as a whole, harmonizing the entire body, mind and spirit while also helping you live more comfortably in your own body. This massage focuses on the emotional and spiritual healing involved as well as the physical relief.

deep tissue

releases chronic muscle tension through slower strokes and more direct deep pressure or friction following or going across the fiber’s of the muscles, tendons and fascia. It helps to break up and eliminate scar tissue and release the chronic patterns of tension in the body. Deep tissue is used on more specific areas and may cause some soreness during or right after the massage.

craniosacral

a gentle method of evaluating and enhancing the function of the craniosacral system - comprised of the membranes and cerebrospinal fluid that surround and protect the brain and spinal cord. Uses a soft touch to release restrictions to improve the functioning of the central nervous system. It is an excellent complement to the body’s natural healing process and is increasingly used as a preventive health measure for its ability to bolster resistance to disease, and is effective for a wide range of medical problems associated with pain and dysfunction, including: Migraines, Chronic Neck and Back Pain, Autism, Brain and Spinal Cord Injuries, Scoliosis, Learning Disabilities, Chronic Fatigue, Emotional Difficulties, Stress and Tension-Related Problems, Fibromyalgia and other Connective-Tissue Disorders, TMJ and many others.

sensory repatterning

involves moving a client’s body through its range of motion while encouraging it to let go of holding patterns and muscular restrictions. The nervous system experiences sensations of ease, openness and acceptance which may facilitate change on the physical, emotional, mental and energetic levels. The resulting awareness and subsequent elimination of habituated patterns helps to support the body’s natural healing abilities and allows it to move through life with more freedom.
