Services Offered

Massage Therapy

The scientific manipulation of the soft tissues of the body for the purpose of normalizing those tissues and consists of manual techniques that include applying fixed or movable pressure, holding, and/or causing movement of or to the body.

Neuromuscular Therapy

Neuromuscular Therapy (NMT) is a system of specific massage techniques developed in the 1930s by Dr Stanley Lief. This holistic approach toward healing uses recognized physiological laws and associated principles to relieve pain and normalize muscle tone. NMT stimulates the body's natural ability to heal itself while enhancing the function of joints and muscles and allowing the body to return to a state of homeostasis. Neuromuscular Therapy is a specialized form of deep tissue massage in which digital pressure and friction are used to release areas of strain in the muscle. These areas of strain are called tender or trigger points and are the cause of muscular pain symptoms.

Myofascial Release

Myofascial Release is a safe and very effective hands-on technique that involves applying gentle sustained pressure into the Myofascial connective tissue restrictions to eliminate pain and restore motion. This essential “time element” has to do with the viscous flow and the piezoelectric phenomenon: a low load (gentle pressure) applied slowly will allow a viscoelastic medium (fascia) to elongate.

Integral Transformative Bodywork

Integral Transformative Bodywork (ITB 1), a modal of bodywork and shamanic/energetic medicine created by Geoff West for the purpose of integrally facilitating an uncovering of psychosomatic material that creates an opportunity to "intimately witness" how we relate to our traumas, emotions, psychology, and physical body. Our goal is to translate, inform, and guide others on their journey through the terrain of their conscious evolution so that they may begin to more fully claim their pain, toxic patterns, and aliveness and consciously choose their own path of transcending their traumas, emerging as a more whole and Awakened Being.

Prenatal (pregnancy) Massage Therapy

Prenatal Massage can be performed at any point during the pregnancy and provides a range of benefits for both mother and baby, including:

  • Supports mother's body during baby development​
  • Provides drug-free relief from muscle aches and soreness
  • Increases blood and lymph flow to assist the heart and reduce swelling
  • Reduces stress on weight-bearing joints
  • Reduces pressure and pain to the nervous system
  • Promotes relaxation and muscle awareness
  • Promotes release of emotional and physical tension
  • Prepares the body for delivery​
Massage during the first trimester is similar to Swedish Massage. During the second and third trimesters, the mother-to-be receives massage in a side-lying position supported by bolsters and pillows for ultimate comfort. A modified supine position (reclining) may also be used. Prenatal Massage is therapeutic bodywork that focuses on the special needs of the mother-to-be as her body goes through the dramatic changes of pregnancy. It enhances the function of muscles and joints, improves circulation and general body tone, and relieves mental and physical fatigue.

Swedish Massage

Swedish Massage Therapy is the most popular type of massage in the United States. ... The benefits of Swedish massage include increased blood circulation, mental and physical relaxation , decreased stress and muscle tension, and improved range of motion.

Muscle Energy Techniques

Muscle Energy Techniques Muscle Energy Technique (MET) is a form of manual therapy which uses a muscle's own energy in the form of gentle isometric contractions to relax the muscles via autogenic or reciprocal inhibition, and lengthen the muscle.

Myoskeletal Alignment

Myoskeletal Alignment Techniques bring together the most advanced therapeutic strategies to relieve, and ultimately correct, patterns in the body that lead to pain and deterioration.

Reiki Master

Reiki is a Japanese healing tradition which involves the practitioner lightly laying their hands on the receiver, or in some cases, hovering their hands over the body with no touch involved. Reiki is Divine Energy. The practitioner does not use their own energy, but instead channels this universal energy for highest good of the receiver. This spiritually guided life force energy helps the body to regain balance and promote healing by aligning the chakras. Reiki was rediscovered by Mikao Usui in the early 1900s and works by opening and aligning the chakras so energy can flow more readily through the body.

Meditation Facilitator

Facilitation of a practice of concentrated focus upon a sound, object, visualization, the breath, movement, or attention itself in order to increase awareness of the present moment, reduce stress, promote relaxation, and enhance personal and spiritual growth.

Distance Healing

Several energy healing modalities can be performed from a distance, as effectively as if the session were happening in person. These include Meditation, Human Design, and Reiki. These modalities help to harmonize emotional and mental projects, but also physical projects like aches and pains, headaches, respiratory or digestive complaints. This is a great alternative for those who can't make it into the office, or for anyone anywhere who doesn't have a practitioner working nearby. It is also beneficial for oncology patients or others who are immuno-compromised or otherwise restricted to home or hospital. How does distance healing work?
Think of it this way, electricity, cell phones, radio, TV and internet all use energy frequencies we can’t see in order to function. All of these have to be tuned to the particular frequency they operate at in order to work. Distance Healing works the same way. Energy is tuned to the person it is being sent to and will flow through the energy currents that exist naturally all around us, just like a phone or wifi signal. Because distance is no obstacle, this healing energy can be sent anywhere in the world, with results as effective as in-person sessions.
