What YOU Knead
Specializing in relieving pain and reducing stress, I utilize different types of therapeutic massage to help you maintain a good quality of life! Not your typical cookie cutter massage like you get at the large franchises or spas, each treatment is customized to fit your individual needs. I care about YOU and helping you thrive, feeling your best!
DEEP TISSUE MASSAGE
Deep tissue massage reaches the structures far beneath the superficial fascia to help relieve chronic pain, injuries and tension. Imagine your body as layers in an onion and treating one layer at a time. It is specific and detail oriented work, focusing on the muscles in pain or dysfunction and treating the root of the problem.
Deep tissue does not necessarily mean deep pressure. If the body is resisting from too much pressure it can be counterproductive and will NOT relax. If done correctly, deep tissue will often "hurt so good"!
TRIGGER POINT THERAPY
A trigger point is an isolated spasm in the muscle that may cause pain to be referred to other, more distant parts of the body and can be formed by muscle overload, repetitious motions, direct injury, or habitually poor posture. If not treated, trigger points can lead to an increase of muscle stiffness, tenderness and a decrease in range of motion.
Trigger point therapy can alleviate the source of the pain by releasing the constricted areas of the muscle giving you relief.
Now you can experience this amazing ancient healing technique and feel its powerful results. Massage cupping uses negative pressure to rapidly facilitate rigid soft tissue release, decreases inflammation, loosens and lifts connective tissue, breaks up stubborn knots, and drains stagnation while increasing blood and lymph flow to skin and muscles in ways not possible using compression. In addition, the pulling action of the cups engages the parasympathetic nervous system, allowing the feeling of deep relaxation to move through your entire body.
Cupping is superior bodywork for pain, stubborn conditions, repetitive strains, inflammation and is a great enhancement to your treatment. Making your muscles feel like they've been worked a lot deeper, but without feeling overwhelmingly sore. Clients are oftensurprised at how warm and light they feel long after their treatments.

Working within the mouth is a powerful and effective way to help you achieve balance in the upper body. Through local manual treatment, we are able to release long-held tension and allow for optimal movement of the jaw, larynx, and the upper spine. This change often helps resolve compression and disrupt chronic pain patterns of stress, usage, and and posture. During intraoral massage, I work on the muscles inside the mouth while wearing gloves. Combined with head, neck, and face massage, this powerful treatment can relieve tension and correct imbalances in the jaw.
Intraoral massage can help address jaw pain, ear pain, clenching, grinding, popping, headaches, migraines, and restricted mouth opening.
