My signature Integrative Massage is a therapeutic method for relaxation, circulation, and relief of chronic pain and discomfort that combines principals of massage & bodywork including physical, emotional, and spiritual elements to support a holistic mind-body-spirit approach to wellness.
My Integrative massage is therapeutic in nature and is generally good for those with mild to moderate aches, pains, and focus areas that prefer light or medium pressure. If you have chronic, more severe focus areas you may prefer a massage that focuses on the deeper layers of muscle tissue and should choose an Increased Focus Integrative Massage which works deeper into the layers of muscle tissue and fascia in order to correct and heal and area of dysfunction. An Increased Focus massage is slow and thorough and gives increased attention to knots and trigger points along the way. While this work can sometimes cause some discomfort in areas of severe tension or “knots”, it is often described as a “good hurt”, and should not be a painful process. Pain isn’t necessarily good, and it’s not necessarily a sign that the massage is working. In fact, your body may tense up in response to pain, making it harder for the therapist to reach deeper muscles and taking longer to facilitate results. An Increased Focus Integrative Massage includes warm stone therapy.
Some of the things that are incorporated into my integrative massage sessions are crystals, aromatherapy, Reiki, acupressure, sound healing, chakra clearing and balancing, and any other modalities and techniques that I am trained in and may be guided to use. I am Board Certified in Therapeutic Massage and Bodywork by the NCBTMB.
When you come for your session you will fill out a health history form and we will also discuss your goals and main focus areas for the session. Based on what we discuss I will base the session off your goals, my knowledge, and intuitive guidance.
