My Services

Shiatsu

Shiatsu is a Japanese form of massage based on Anma Massage and Traditional Chinese Medicine. The word Shiatsu comes from two Japanese words - "shi" (finger) and "atsu" (pressure), however, we use our hands, forearms, elbows, and sometimes knees and feet to give deep, penetrating yet comfortable pressure. In addition to the direct stimulation of pressure points (Tsubos) along the energy channels (Meridians) of your body, gentle stretching and range of motion techniques are applied to open the energy channels, and encourage the flow of Ki (energy) throughout the body. Shiatsu is a meditative healing art that honors the body, mind and spirit.

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, deep relaxation and stress relief, enhanced mental clarity, improved circulations, and greater flexibility. I use 100% organic massage oil with a blend of pure essential oils to help enhance the effects of massage.

 My Swedish Massage is integrated with Shiatsu and deep tissue therapy to address clients' specific needs.
