HELLO AND WELCOME!
I am a believer that all bodies benefit from bodywork and massage. Our daily lives require quite a demand on our physical body: muscles, bones and connective tissue as well as our mental & emotional bodies. The ability to "let it all melt away" on the table is a true necessity. The body is a very complex, interconnected system all working together as one. Because of this interconnected network, I address your whole body to assist in specific treatment work and realignment so you can move forward in the world with a sense of ease.
PEOPLE COME TO SEE ME FOR:
Transgender care/top surgery care
Pre/Post surgical prep
Gender affirming/body affirming work
Scar tissue treatments
Balance restoration/energetic openings
Styles of massage (typically combined):
Facial restrictions can be painful and cause restricted range of motion within the body. Myofascial release gently yet deeply unsticks these layers of bound tissue and muscle.
Scar tissue release is usually comprised of a series of treatments over time to improve circulation and movement in the body and help soften the scars over time. I work with all types of scars and have a specialty working with scars resulting from Top Surgery.
For pre/post op treatment work
Deep Tissue treatment focuses on painful, stiff "trouble spots" in your body. This type of treatment is designed to reach the deeper sections of thick muscles, and specifically address and loosen the individual muscle fibres.
A gentle method that helps to reduce swelling in the body and restore lymphatic pathways back to wellness- great option for pre & post surgery or acute injuries.
Cupping therapy uses silicone cups to create a vacuum over the specific points of the body. The suction inside the cups lifts the skin away from the body to create negative pressure, as opposed to the positive pressure induced by massage. This style of treatment is helpful for muscles that feel very tight, stuck or nearly immobile.
Tender Point Release uses passive and painless positioning to reduce your pain and spasm while improving your motion and function. This technique "dissolves" your painful tender points, even ones that have persisted for years.
Providing relief for your body mind and spirit on this challenging road of recover
