AROMATHERAPY CONSULTATION WITH LOTIONS & POTIONS – JT
(JT only) 30 minute or 60 minute consultation session. One on one session to review your concerns, health issues, medications, and options. Aromatherapy consultation, experience with essential oils, custom personalized aroma-therapeutic blends, make and take, or pre-made items.
(Anna & Stefanie) Oncology massage is a client-specific, customized massage session designed to meet the unique and changing needs of someone in treatment for cancer or with a history of cancer treatment. A safe massage plan generally revolves around the side effects (both short- and long-term) of chemotherapy, radiation and surgery.
Oncology massage can only be provided by a massage therapist who has received training in the specifics of cancer and cancer treatment. This training is more about cancer and less about massage. When you are receiving an oncology massage, you are receiving traditional, established massage therapy techniques that have been adapted to account for your unique health situation. The changes that might be made to a massage that make it an “oncology massage” can fall under any number of categories, but typically they will be related to session length, pressure, positioning and areas of specific compromise or concern like mediports, bone metastases or skin reactions to treatment.
60 or 90 minutes massage. Both of you receive a massage in the same room at the same time or you may choose different rooms at the same time. Your choice of modalities include any modality offered by the massage therapist you have. Most people receive a therapeutic or relaxation, occasionally a pregnancy massage. Must call or text to schedule a Couple’s Massage due to coordinating schedules. Normal price: 60 minute $140; 90 minute $200.
(Anna only) CranioSacral Therapy is a gentle yet powerful technique that is effective in releasing neck pain, back pain, and mental stress (among other things). It does this by optimizing the movement of cerebrospinal fluid through the spine and around the skull. Developed by physician William Sutherland, this therapy provides a very soothing and relaxing healing experience.
(Kyle only) Cupping Massage is the combination of massage movements and negative pressure with the use of a suction device on the skin. A cup is positioned at the area to be treated and a vacuum is created within the cup to draw the skin and underlying tissue into the cup. The produced vacuum creates a suction effect that increases blood and lymphatic circulation both systemically and to the local area, relaxes muscle tissue and releases myofacial restrictions.
Cupping Massage is used to:
• Separate adhesions in tissue layers and create space in the fascia;
• Liberate trapped inflammation;
• Stimulate lymph drainage;
• Sedate and regulate the nervous system;
• Relieve pain;
• Soften and minimize scar tissue; and
• Release rigid tissue and compensatory patterns.

DEEP TISSUE MASSAGE
Deep Tissue Massage is a form of massage 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. Keep in mind that soreness is possible after the treatment, and that plenty of water should be ingested to aid in hydrating the body from the treatment as your muscles react like they were put through a hard workout. Deep Tissue work, in my opinion, does not need to cross the threshold of “good pain” to provide lasting results.
Geriatric Massage is a form of massage designed to meet the specific needs of the elderly. It helps to improve blood circulation, relieve pain, and also increase range of motion. If you are elderly, geriatric massage can help you maintain and improve your overall health, as well as regain certain physical functions that have been reduced due to aging. In addition, since the elderly don’t typically receive enough physical touch, this massage can also help alleviate symptoms of loneliness or depression.
(Anna only) Infant Massage is a style of bodywork designed specifically to promote the healthy development of your infant. Caring human touch is crucial for a healthy thriving baby, and the benefits of massaging your infant are potent and numerous. For example, many infants show improved growth and development of the brain and nervous system. Infant massage has also been shown to improve the quality of a baby’s sleep, as well as strengthening their immune system.
Lymphatic Drainage Therapy aims to gently and rhythmically move the lymph through the body, especially swollen areas of the body, relieving pressure and enhancing the functioning of the immune system. As both a preventative and remedial technique, LD can be used for a wide range of purposes including faster recovery from injury, reduction of swelling and discomfort from pregnancy, and strengthened resistance to illness. Our staff performs LD for sports or muscular injury only.
Myofascial Release is a form of soft tissue therapy intended to eliminate pain, increase range of motion, and rebalance the entire body. It does this by using massage techniques to stretch the fascia and release the bonds that exist between the fascia, muscles and bones. Fascia is the connective tissue that connects and covers all muscles, organs, and skeletal structures of the body. Direct myofascial release is sometimes known as deep tissue work. Indirect release applies light pressure and gently stretches the fascia; this allows for increased blood circulation and relief from pain.
Pregnancy Massage is a style of massage designed specifically for pregnant women using a specially designed pillow to allow you to relax face down (on your stomach). Pregnancy is a time when a woman’s body endures tremendous stress due to dramatic physical and emotional changes. Using various techniques specially developed for the expecting mother, Pregnancy Massage helps release the pain and discomfort experienced throughout pregnancy. The benefits are profound, including emotional support, the relief of joint pain due to extra weight and postural imbalance, and improved breathing and relaxation.
(Kyle only) Sports Massage is a type of massage designed for highly active people who engage in athletics. Engaging in sports is harsh on the body and can often lead to injuries in both the short and long term. Sports Massage enhances performance and prolongs a sports career by helping to prevent injury, reduce pains and swelling in the body, relax the mind, increase flexibility, and dramatically improve recovery rates. Sports Massage is also highly effective in aiding the rapid recovery of an athlete from an injury by encouraging greater kinesthetic awareness and in turn promoting the body’s natural immune function.
Swedish Massage is a very relaxing and therapeutic style of massage. 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 massage are wide-ranging and include relief from aches and pains, decreased stress levels in the body, enhanced mental clarity, improved appearance, and greater flexibility.
THERAPEUTIC MASSAGE (what we do most of the time)
My definition of a Therapeutic Massage is a combination of the modalities and therapies as needed to help resolve the client’s specific concerns.
TRIGGER POINT THERAPY
Trigger Point Therapy is a style of massage that focuses on stimulating and releasing “trigger points” in your body. Trigger points are tender areas of tension similar to acupressure points, except they occur in the belly of the muscle rather than along the energy pathways of the body. These “knots” are built up throughout a person’s life due to physical, mental, and/or emotional stress. During a session, focused pressure is applied through a variety of techniques in order to release your trigger points. This process can be uncomfortable at times, yet the effects are lasting and profoundly transformative.
HOT STONE THERAPY
Hot Stone Therapy is a style of massage where heated stones are placed at specific sites on your body to deepen relaxation and promote circulation in your muscles. Muscles that are heated with these stones release tension and stress much more deeply and quickly than with a traditional massage. The overall experience is very relaxing, nurturing, and rejuvenating.
Anna is trained in Kinesiology Taping thru RockTape. She uses kinesiotaping to help reduce swelling and bruising through lymphatic drainage as well as help to increase range of motion and improve posture. This technique may help clients recover from injuries. It is another tool to help you return to daily living faster. Your choice of Add On to your massage for $15 or schedule a 30 minute Kinesiology Taping Session for $30.
AROMATHERAPY ADD ON TO MASSAGE
Essential oils can be added to any of the massages except Pregnancy.
Chair massage is a popular way of relieving stress and releasing tension right in your workplace. You receive your massage in a specialized ergonomic chair which I bring to your location. In addition to the usual health benefits of massage, another benefit of chair massage is that it is done over the clothing. With seated massage, you can avoid the discomfort and awkwardness that you may feel in disrobing for a traditional massage. Also, chair massage sessions are usually shorter than traditional massage, making it convenient enough to fit into your busy schedule.
