Sports Massage
A type of therapy geared toward athletes and the particular stresses they place on their bodies.
Many competitors use sports massage as part of their training regime. 
Since most sporting injuries are muscle injuries or originate from muscle dysfunction, athletes are more able to sustain high levels of performance with regular massage treatments.  Benefits:  increases range of motion and flexibility and relieves muscle soreness. It assists in injury prevention and promotes faster recovery from both training and injury.
Deep Tissue
A type of massage aimed at the deeper tissue structures of the muscle and fascia. It is also a more focused type of massage to release chronic muscle tension.  Deep Tissue is likely to be a bit more uncomfortable than a classic Swedish massage. You should always feel free to speak up if the pressure is too much for you. There may be soreness after a Deep Tissue massage however the soreness will go away after a day or two.  Benefits:  breaks up and eliminates scar tissue from previous injuries.  It also breaks up and releases built-up toxins by loosening muscles which will increase circulation and oxygen flow in the blood and will also decrease inflammation.
Trigger Point Therapy
Involves the use of concentrated pressure on certain trigger points (knots), in the muscles with the aim of relieving pain and treating muscle spasms. Trigger points are those areas in the muscles that are believed to be the starting point of certain types of pain or better known as “knots”.  The complexity of Trigger Point Therapy is that pain in one area of the body, may be caused by a trigger point in another area. So where your pain is, isn’t always where the problem is.  Benefits: increases flexibility and range of motion, improves circulation, relieves client of pain and fewer headaches and can end muscle spasms.
Swedish Massage
A variety of techniques specifically designed to relax muscles by applying pressure to them against deeper muscles and bones, and rubbing in the same direction as the flow of blood returning to the heart.  Benefits: relief from stiffness, numbness, pain, constipation, and other health problems. Increases circulation and oxygen flow in the blood and releases toxins from the muscles. It reduces recovery time from muscular strains by flushing the tissues of acids and toxins.
Craniosacral Therapy
A holistic healing practice that uses very light holds to balance the Craniosacral system in the body, which includes the bones, nerves, fluids, and connective tissues of the cranium (head) and spinal area.  Most clients end up falling asleep because it is so relaxing and clients generally feel “lighter” and more at peace.  When performing Craniosacral I’ll generally just do about 10-20 minutes of light holds on your head at the end of your massage session. It can be included in your regular session or you can add time on for this treatment. I don’t do a full 60 minute treatment of Craniosacral.  Benefits: relieves headaches, tension in the scalp, and reduces stress. It can also aid in the healing of sinus infections and whiplash.
Prenatal Massage
To improve overall health, a woman should receive a prenatal massage during pregnancy. Ultimately, prenatal massage has been shown to improve labor outcomes for both mother and child.  Prenatal massage is performed while laying on your side hugging a body pillow and at the end turning onto your back for the neck massage (If you are too far along to lay on your back I just do the neck while on your side).  Benefits:  increases circulation, relaxes tense muscles, reduces stress and anxiety associated with labor. Relieves pain, sciatic nerve pain and lowers stress hormones which are a major cause of pregnancy complications.
Seated Massage Events


Hire me for an event like a trade show to attract more people to your booth! Benefits: more income from the additional traffic the massages will attract to your booth and more contacts to produce more income.  Have people give you their business card for a chance to win a free 60 minute massage!

I do Seated Massages with a massage chair for events or businesses. Many businesses like to reward their employees with a monthly, quarterly, or annually, 10, 15 or 20 minute massage performed at the office. 
Benefits: employees are a lot more productive as the massage relieves stress which enables them to focus more on their job. Plus they are happier with their employer for giving them such a perk! Or have the employee pay for half or all of the massage but still provide them with the benefit of having a Massage Therapist come to the office.

Free Massages for Car Accident Victims

Most people don’t know that your Personal Injury Protection (PIP) with your car insurance covers massage therapy when referred by a Chiropractor or Medical Doctor.  I have worked on many car accident clients and helped them have a faster recovery. You don’t pay anything and I bill your car insurance.  Before your massage you need a prescription from a Chiropractor or a doctor and I will check your Car Insurance to confirm you are covered.  Depending on your injuries you can usually at least get a dozen massages over time.

With even minor car accidents people almost always suffer from whiplash. Whiplash can take months to show up, so even if you aren’t in pain right away you should always see a Chiropractor or a Doctor and ask for a massage prescription.

Massage Therapy is very necessary to help with whiplash and other injuries and muscle tension from a car accident.

If you need a referral for a Chiropractor or Doctor please call me.

*Make sure you drink A LOT of water after your massage to release the toxins in your body. The more water you drink the less sore you will be. If you don’t drink plenty of water the toxins will settle right back in the muscles.


* Do not waste my time or yours by asking for anything other than Therapeutic massage. This is a very professional massage practice.
