Massage Therapy & Eastern Bodywork
Deep Tissue Massage
Deep Tissue massage focuses on realigning deeper layers of muscle and connective tissue. These sessions will use more intense pressure than what is used during a Swedish massage and it is normal for people to experience a manageable amount of pain while therapists work on tight and contracted muscles. For any type of athlete, Deep Tissue massage will assist in injury prevention and improved training. All varieties of sports and physical activities can lead to imbalances that can cause injury.
The various Swedish/Relaxation massage techniques are designed to improve your circulation, soothe your muscles and make you feel more relaxed. Swedish massage uses softer strokes on the bonier and more delicate parts of the body, and stronger strokes where there is thicker muscle coverage. This adjustment of pressure makes it an ideal massage for relaxation.
Floor Thai Bodywork
Janie has developed a unique style of bodywork which is deeply transformational for both the physical and energetic bodies. By using hands, elbows, knees, and feet, Janie assists in releasing stagnant energy from main acupressure points along meridian lines. Janie shares breathing and surrendering techniques throughout the massage, and clients participate fully by breathing consciously and staying present in their bodies.
This Asian combination massage uses kneading, pressing, soothing, tapping, and stretching techniques and is performed without oils through light, comfortable clothing. It is a non-invasive therapy that may help reduce stress and contribute to overall well-being. Each of these Asian modalities can be used to benefit a wide range of internal, musculoskeletal, and emotional conditions. It is thought to reduce muscle stiffness, stimulate the skin, aid digestion, and influence the nervous system. Based on the activation of the Traditional Chinese Meridians, treatments offer relief for a wide range of chronic conditions, such as headaches, PMS, digestive disorders, fatigue, insomnia, fibromyalgia, stress, anxiety, and musculoskeletal pain, including low back, neck, and joint pain. The effect may be stimulating and invigorating or calming and sedative, depending on the goal of the session.
A soft, nurturing massage for soon to be mothers. Mothers must be at least in their second trimester to receive prenatal massage. During our session, we will focus on freeing up the muscles around the hips, low-back, and pelvis to help facilitate an easier pregnancy and birth. Allowing the mother-to-be to relax and be nurtured during her pregnancy is a very important part of learning to open and embrace this special time. I also incorporate my knowledge of oriental medicine, aromatherapy, and acupressure into my sessions per request. Massage is a much-needed part of the postpartum time as well when mothers are recovering from birth and holding and feeding their babies for the first time.
*As with any therapeutic approach to pregnancy wellness, women should discuss massage with their prenatal care provider. The best way to address the risks of prenatal massage is to be informed and to work together with knowledgeable professionals.
