MASSAGE THERAPY

ALL BODYWORK SERVICES ARE $105 PER HOUR  

THERAPEUTIC MASSAGE

Therapeutic Massage is a full body customized massage which includes the use of various techniques to include trigger point, deep penetrating hot/cold contrast, deep tissue, and swedish techniques (based upon individual assessment).

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, decreased stress levels in the body, enhanced mental clarity, improved appearance, and greater flexibility.

DEEP TISSUE MASSAGE

Deep Tissue Massage is a form of bodywork that aims to relieve tension in the deeper layers of tissue in the body. Deep Tissue Massage is a highly effective method for releasing chronic stress areas due to misalignment, repetitive motions, and past lingering injuries. Due to the nature of the deep tissue work, open communication during the session is crucial to make sure you don’t get too uncomfortable.

LYMPHATIC DRAINAGE MANUAL THERAPY

Lymphatic Drainage Manual Therapy is a specialized body work technique that is provided by advanced trained licensed and certified health care practitioners such as nurses, massage therapists, and acupuncturists. This therapy applies repetitive pressure at lymph node sites and a stroking technique along lymph vessels that stimulates the movement of lymph fluid. This therapy assists with post surgical swelling and inflammation due to numerous heath complaints such as sinusitis, arthritis, gastritis, back pain, neck pain and more.

REFLEXOLOGY

Reflexology – The principles of reflexology embody techniques designed to keep the body’s systems operating at peak efficiency. Providing gentle pressure along points in the feet can help achieve balance in the body by normalizing the function of the internal organs and stimulating the body’s natural healing process.

TRIGGER POINT THERAPY

Trigger Point Therapy – A trigger point is a tight area within the muscle tissue that causes pain in other parts of the body. A trigger point in the back, for example, may produce referred pain in the neck. The neck, now acting as a satellite trigger point, may then cause pain in the head. The pain may be sharp and intense or a dull ache. Trigger point massage therapy is specially designed to alleviate the pain at the source through cycles of isolated pressure and release. You can experience a significant decrease in pain after just one treatment. Receiving massage with trigger point therapy on a regular basis can alleviate a lot of stress associated with chronic pain.

GERIATRIC MASSAGE

Geriatric Massage is designed to address the specific needs of the elderly. This type of massage uses gentle and light application of massage techniques with oil or lotion to permit your muscles to be worked on without excessive friction to the skin. Geriatric massage has been shown to relieve anxiety and provide comfort, especially to touch-deprived elderly clients.

The Wheel of Life is a great, powerful, and easy to use personal development tool to help you create and set meaningful goals in your life and address your overall health and well-being. This wheel incorporates self-assessment, personal reflection, and visualization on how to promote balance and explore how you are functioning in various areas in your life.

Step 1:

Draw your own Wheel of Life. Label each section with a life area.

Examples of life areas: Physical Health, Mental Health, Finances, Career, Emotional Well-Being, Intellect, Travel, Environment, Home Life, School, Education, Work, Self Care, Family Life, Relationships, Spirituality, Personal Growth, Diet, Recreation, etc…

Do whatever feels right for you. If you have trouble thinking of 8 areas, you can also do just 6. Just make sure each life area is meaningful so that you can create meaningful and purposeful goals.

Example of Wheel of Life:

Step 2:

Spend the time now to reflect on how fulfilled you are in each life area. Place a dot between the center and the outer edge of the wheel to indicate what % you feel fulfilled. The center of the circle is 0% and the outer edge represents 100% fulfillment. Use mindful intentions during the self-exploration phase to ensure the most accurate representation of your life balance.

As you decide where to draw your dot, consider reflecting on this soul searching questions or create your own to make it more meaningful, customized, and personalized.

Physical health – How’s your overall diet? Any changes you’d like to make to the way you eat? How do you feel during the day (tired, energetic, fatigued, etc)? How’s your quality of sleep? How often do you exercise?
Spirituality – How in tune are you with your beliefs? How closely connected do you feel to what you believe in?
Relationships – Do you have friends/family that you can talk to? How satisfied are you with the quality of relationships in your life? How often do you spend quality time with your loved ones? How easily do you connect with others?
Creativity – Do you have a creative outlet? Are you utilizing it? How satisfied are you with your creative abilities?
Career & Finances – How satisfied are you in your current career? Are you in your dream career? Or do you need to switch paths? How comfortable are you with your current financial status?
Personal Development – Are you actively working on your personal development? How well do you really know yourself? How satisfied are you with your personal growth lately?
Overall Life Vision – How happy are you with the direction your life is headed? How clear is your vision for your future? How satisfied are you with the steps that you’re taking towards that vision?
Emotional Well-being – How balanced do you feel emotionally? How aware are you of your emotions? How do you process/cope with your emotions?
Home Life – Am I comfortable in my home? Do I feel safe and secure? Does it feel balanced or hectic and chaotic? Is it clean and organized or messy?
Environment – How important is the environment and your setting to you? Is my environment energizing or draining? Is there ways I can improve my surroundings?
Self Care – How much of a priority is self-care in my life? What are ways I can attend to my self-care to help me feel more balanced? Am paying attention and addressing my needs? How can I incorporate and learn new self-care techniques? How can I ensure to practice self-care on a regular basis?

Step 3:

 

Once you have drawn a dot within each section, connect the dots together to form a circle. It is ok if the circle does not come out perfectly balanced.

Step 4: Create meaningful and purposeful goals to have a more balanced and evenly shaped wheel. Look at which areas of your life need more of your focus and how slight adjustments can help overall improve your health and well-being. You may want to start with the areas that display your strengths and then address the more challenging life areas if you find yourself getting overwhelmed. Don’t ignore your strengths, they are just as important if not more so than the weaknesses or areas of improvement.

The best way to create concrete and achievable goals is to make them SMART

S – Specific M- Measurable A- Attainable R- Relastic T-Time Based

Examples of  SMART goals:

 

Physical health

“ I will exercise for 30 minutes by running or biking 3x per week.”
“I will try a new form of exercise (i.e. yoga, pilates, zumba) once a month for one hour.”

“I will explore a new creative outlet every 6 months.”
“I will attend two events or find a community of people who are creative within the next 3 months.”
Career & Finances

“I will go back to school or get a new certification within the next 6 months.”

Step 5:

Follow through on the goals you have created. With time you can always go back to do this activity to track the progress you have made since the start. Note: always know that you can change and make adjustments throughout the process.
