Reflexology

Soothe and nourish your feet, hands, ears and face

Reflexology is both a science and an ancient healing art. Reflexology uses anatomical knowledge in combination with skillful hand techniques to apply light and deep pressure over reflex points in the feet, hands, ears and face. The reflex points correspond to organs, glands and internal systems. The application of pressure on these reflex points stimulates the complex network of nerve endings to improve the flow of blood, lymph and energy pathways. Reflexology induces deep relaxation and reduces stress to facilitate healing and restore balance.

 

When the body is stressed, the natural balance within your body is disrupted and negatively impacts the immune system. Reflexology rejuvenates your system, allowing the energy in your body to flow freely and restore your homeostasis, or balance. Reflexology interweaves relaxation, peace of mind, and renewed energy to allow your body to function harmoniously and efficiently, as it is meant to do. 

 

The foot is our base, our foundation. A steady foot means stability and security. When we "lose our footing", we lose our equilibrium and sense of balance. Circulation and toxins tend to stagnate in the feet. Reflexology stimulates and allows better blood flow, and encourages toxins to be eliminated from the body. 

Conditions that respond well to Reflexology include Fatigue, Plantar Fasciitis, Carpal Tunnel Syndrome, Sinus Congestion, Fluid Imbalances, Constipation, and more. If your feet and hands are tired, this is the restorative modality that you're looking for.

Massage

Swedish, Shiatsu and Deep Tissue

I blend a combination of Swedish, Shiatsu and Deep Tissue according to your requests and needs. 

 

Massage therapy supports and strengthens the body’s natural ability to heal and balance itself. It works on the whole person - not just with the physical body, but also with the psychological, emotional and spiritual aspects of being.
Swedish massage uses light to medium pressure to relax tension and stress.

Shiatsu is a Japanese style that translates to "finger pressure". Shiatsu originates from Traditional Chinese Medicine. I use touch, comfortable pressure, stretching and manipulative techniques to adjust the body and balance its energy flow.

Deep Tissue uses a variety of techniques to release restrictions and reduce pain.

Medicupping

Release restrictions and promote healthy blood and lymph flow

*Medicupping may be added as a free complimentary service to any 90 minute or 2 hour session*

Massage compresses tissue; Vacutherapies lift tissue. Medicupping releases underlying stagnation and congestion in tissues and the circulatory systems in a method that traditional massage techniques cannot accomplish.  Integrating massage and vacutherapies provides a comprehensive treatment for rejuvenating and restoring tissues to function optimally.

Vacuum therapy is a pleasant, non-invasive treatment that creates a soothing suction using vacuum "cups" on the surface of the body that reaches deep into the tissues. This movement releases restrictions, congestion and stagnation within the muscles, layers of skin and connective tissues to improve circulation, decrease inflammation, relieve deep muscular pain, increase range of motion, soften scar tissue and sedate the nervous system. A few of the conditions that respond well to vacutherapy include muscular aches, arthritis, tendonitis, plantar fasciitis, post op recovery, athletic stress and injury, scars and adhesions, poor circulation and fibromyalgia.

Lympathic drainage is accomplished through the gentle action of the vacuum in a precise pattern to promote drainage and improve lympathic circulation.

Face lifting and drainage is a technique which opens and clears the drainage pathways in the head and neck and assists in relief of conditions such as sinusitis, migraine headaches and tension headaches.
