Refresh

A full-body relaxation massage that makes use of firm yet large movements in time with the person’s deep breath. I use a blend of some of 'moves' from traditional and more modern massage techniques, such as Swedish, Deep Tissue and Shiatsu massage. Following a set pattern, and using lots of oil, every move I make flows seamlessly into the next, all the while responding to the rhythm of breathing. The goal is to achieve a sense of peace as well as an exhilarating endorphin rush. 

Release

This therapy is more intensive and focused on specific 'problem areas'. Borrowing techniques from Deep Tissue, Trigger Point and Myofascial Release (MFR), I release tensions that have built up and lengthen shortened muscular areas - such as the back of the neck or shoulders, or arms and legs - by choosing techniques (based on your specific needs) that relax, palpate, and stretch the affected muscles and connective tissues. Lastly, if needed, I focus on posture movements and advice to avoid problems in the future. 

Relive

During these sessions I will ask you to share with me where you feel that emotional concerns (present or past) are being ‘stored up’ in your body. Emotions never truly leave our bodies, where they can form the ‘memory of things we believe we have forgotten. Using both general relaxation and deeper massage techniques, as well as voicing (expressing words or sounds while I massage), I try to help the person ‘relive’ these areas: to bring back flow and movement to areas in the body locked by emotion. (There are so many examples: shoulders locked forward, tense neck from a head held forward, tightened stomach muscles, shallow breathing, tense calf muscles from being “on one’s toes” all the time, etc.)
