While the weather is nice, this is an awesome way to get a massage.  The price is $75.00 for an hour of peace and relaxation. When the weather is not so nice, you still have the option to receive a massage in the traditional environment.

All massage & bodywork is $65.00/hour, unless marked otherwise.

Swedish Massage

Swedish Massage is a very relaxing and therapeutic style of bodywork. It combines oils or lotion with an array of strokes such as rolling, kneading, and percussion to help the body improve its circulation. The benefits of this type of bodywork are wide-ranging and include relief from aches and pains, decreased stress levels in the body, enhanced mental clarity, improved appearance, and greater flexibility.

CranioSacral Therapy

CranioSacral Therapy is a gentle yet powerful technique that is effective in releasing neck pain, back pain, and mental stress (among other things). It does this by optimizing the movement of cerebrospinal fluid through the spine and around the skull. Developed by physician William Sutherland, this therapy provides a very soothing and relaxing healing experience.

Emotional Release

Emotional Release Work starts out with CranioSacral Therapy. I will listen to the body’s inner physician to find physical and/or emotional issues. I will ask questions to help you visualize and create a new way to deal with that emotion in a safe, non-judgmental, and confidential healing space.

Acupressure

Acupressure is based on one of the most ancient principles of healing – that simply touching a specific point on the body will release stress and improve health in the body. In an acupressure session, I apply firm pressure directly to these “points” on your body, which relieves your muscle tension and improves your circulation. This simple and powerful technique has been shown to very effective in treating headaches, backaches, and even insomnia.

Myofascial Mobilization

Myofascial mobilization is a technique used to treat injuries and discomfort, reducing pain and increasing range of motion. Myofascial massage differs from other types of massage in that it targets the fascia – the membrane surrounding muscles – rather than the muscle itself. Since fascia completely encases every muscle in the body, imbalances in the fascia can have serious effects on your range of motion and comfort level. While other forms of massage can overlook the fascia, myofascial massage focuses specifically on releasing tension in this important membrane.

Integrative Massage

Integrative massage is a combination of all massage & bodywork skills I have learned with an added touch of intuition.

Healing Equipment:

HTE healing equipment available for use before, during or after a therapeutic massage or other bodywork at my home office.

Ceramic Heater

Ceramic Heaters generate Far Infrared Rays (FIR) which when absorbed by the body increases the body temperature aiding in the healing process. The Far Infrared Therapy allows your cells to regenerate and can decrease muscle spasms and soreness often providing pain relief. It is excellent for wounds and the warmth provides the benefit of overall relaxation and reducing tension. This type of warmth can also speed up metabolism assisting in weight loss. Many people have found the Far Infrared Therapy to be a good treatment for painful joints and sore muscles. Ceramic Heaters are easy to use and leaves you with a sense of well-being. This is classified as a Class 2 Medical device in Canada.

Electro Reflex Energizer (Advanced ERE)

Similar to reflexology, the advanced Electro Reflex Energizer helps reconnect broken or damaged electrical circuits within the body by stimulating it with the correct wave form, current and frequency. Not just a foot massager, it is effective at producing an ultimate feeling of relaxation and body balancing. Electro Reflex Energizer relieves stressful aches and pains, eases tension and reduces fatigue and revitalizes energy. The following benefits have been reported by various owners.

Richway Amethyst Biomat 7000MX

How does it work? Unlike an electric blanket which uses electric coils to create heat, the Biomat uses a combination of fabrics, Amethyst and Black Tourmaline stones to generate far infrared rays which is then transferred to the body as heat. The heat comes from friction generated within the body through the effects of far infrared rays. Far infrared rays warm the inside of your body and the part of your body making contact with the Biomat. Should the temperature of any part of the Biomat exceed the set temperature, the thermal sensors distributed throughout the Biomat will cut off the electric current. When the Biomat reaches the selected temperature, the negative ion lights will come on and will stay on until the Biomat needs to raise the temperature. The Biomat comes with an external control box which allows you to adjust the desired temperature and usage time (between 2, 4, 8, or 12 hours). As an added safety feature, when the controller is set to 131ºF or higher, it will automatically step down to 113ºF after 4 hours. Benefits are: temporary relief of minor muscle pain, minor joint pain and stiffness, joint pain associated with arthritis, muscle spasms, minor sprains, minor strains, minor muscular back pain; relaxation of muscles; and temporary increase of local circulation.
