Swedish & Relaxation Massage
If you’ve been struggling with pain, chances are most of what you’ve tried addresses the physical causes of pain, through bodywork, or medicine, or even looking at body structure. What might be missing is seeing, and changing, patterns of stress that are causing you to tense your body in ways that injure it. If you are stressed mentally, then you are holding tension physically, and that will injure you.
It's not about how deep you go - it's about how you go deep.
Deep tissue is a focused, therapeutic massage that targets muscle knots (also known as "adhesions") and specific problem areas in the deeper layers of muscle and connective tissue. Using deliberate, slow strokes or friction across the grain of the muscle, I address chronic tight or painful muscles, repetitive strain, postural problems, or injuries.
While it's true that the pressure of deep tissue may be more intense than that of a Swedish massage, it shouldn't have to be painful to be effective.
Unlike traditional massage, medical massage focuses on a particular medical diagnosis as part of the physician's treatment plan, and can be recommended for a variety of maladies, including carpal tunnel syndrome and migraines. My background as an RN is especially helpful with this type of work. It isn't a particular style of massage in itself, but it applies the various massage I already utilize to achieve several specific goals, and get you the best results.
Eden Energy Medicine
Energy is at the root of everything in your life. We take it for granted but it’s there – driving your every breath and every heartbeat. It’s an expansive, often untapped reservoir of incredible power and change and yet, most of us do not know how to utilize it to nearly its full potential. Instead, we get sick, we reach for medication. We can’t sleep, we reach for sleeping pills. We get depressed, we reach for Prozac. We feel pain, we reach for pain medication. We get overweight, we reach for diet pills.
What if you had the tools to direct and encourage your life force energy to naturally bring about greater health, joy, and longevity?
