​​​​ ​​Therapeutic Massage 

Therapeutic Massage, the hands on full body working of the muscles and connective tissue. Many levels of pressure are possible here to meet individual preferences and needs. This can include:​​

 ~ Swedish style long soothing, short flushing strokes, and deep tissue work (as desired and as necessary), terrific for feeding and                                                                                                  flushing muscles, allowing for increased relaxation and ease of movement.

~ Myofascial work, which is the releasing and lengthening of the web of connective tissue that wraps around each muscle cell and fiber and muscle grouping. This is a great aid in releasing pattern restrictions, allowing for increased balance and range of motion in movement

~ CranioSacral work, as taught through the Upledger Institute. This light touch techniques intends to gather
information from subtle body rhythms to identify and release restrictions ihibiting the smooth functioning of the nervous system. Many find the experience deeply relaxing.

~ Reiki, the guided transfer of healing energy or 'universal life force' from hands of the practitioner for the purpose of health and healing. It involves light touch on various locations of the body.
