About Massage 

Physical injuries, emotional traumas, scars and biochemistry/toxicity of blood can often cause adhesions within the connective tissue that hold our bodies together and defines posture. Such adhesions interfere with the energy flow in the body that is the essence of life and result in habituated movements, emotional and physical patterns and often chronic pain. Balancing myofascial (fascia, the connective tissue, in combination with the muscle it enwraps) relationships through bodywork brings the body to its normal movement and structural alignment.


Using Structural Deep Tissue and Myofascial Release, massage helps to release tension in the fascia that enwraps muscles, opens and lengthens tight and short tissues and energizes and awakens weak and overstretched tissues in order to bring them back to where they belong.


Shiatsu / Acupressure helps to balance an energy flow in the meridians: releases stagnant or excess energy and restores deficient energy.


Craniosacral therapy is great for releasing emotional trauma that our body stores in its memory, unwinds tension in Dura, and recalibrates the nervous system. Craniosacral therapy is a light touch approach to therapeutic bodywork that can create dramatic improvements in your life. CST helps release tensions deep in the tissue to relieve pain and physical dysfunction and improve whole-body health and performance. CST is especially good for fibromyalgia and other connective tissue disorders, headache and migraine, chronic neck and back pain, stress and tension related problems, and anxiety.


Sports Massage and Injury Rehabilitation specifically treats and quickly restores sports traumas for a greater performance as well as targets old and recent injuries.


Raindrop Technique is a 75-minute therapy that is a wonderfully rejuvenating and deeply relaxing topical application of therapeutic grade essential oils. Raindrop Therapy combines several holistic modalities to bring balance to the body in a non-invasive manner. It also stimulates all of the body systems on a physical and emotional level. Raindrop Technique can be used to aid in the following symptoms: pain reduction, stress relief & emotional wellness, muscle relaxation, inflammation reduction, improve circulation, improve detoxification, and improve immune function.
