Specializing in Therapeutic Massage -
A Non-pharmacological, Non-invasive Approach to Pain Management
Therapeutic Massage is a general term that refers to techniques aimed at achieving specific therapeutic outcomes, such as relieving pain, reducing stress, or improving function. This type of massage involves the manipulation of the body's soft tissues, including muscles, tendons, ligaments, and fascia, to promote health and wellness.
Therapeutic Massage can take many forms, depending on the specific needs of the individual. These can include deep tissue massage, sports massage, trigger point massage, neuromuscular therapy, thai massage, stretch therapy, and many others. Each type of massage has specific methods and goals, but all aim to enhance well-being and improve physical function.
While therapeutic massage can provide significant benefits, it's important to note that a trained professional should perform it to ensure safety and effectiveness. It's also important to communicate with your massage therapist about your health history and specific needs to ensure that the message is appropriate and beneficial for you
So everybody holds the key to their healing, but sometimes the body needs a little help. That’s where my massage treatment comes in—specializing in relieving chronic neck, back, and hip pain. Whether you are seeking relief from chronic pain, recovering from an injury, want to reduce muscle soreness from exercises, or need entire body deep relaxation, let me help you remain well.
Neuromuscular Therapy -
Trigger Point Massage
Neuromuscular Massage is a manual therapy for pain management, rehabilitation, and prevention therapy. It is a medically-oriented form of therapeutic Massage & deep tissue massage that addresses soft tissue pain problems and myofascial trigger points. The trigger points are microscopic spasms at the neuromuscular junction, where the nervous system communicates with a muscle, causing pain, weakness, and discomfort in a referred pain area. It effectively breaks the stress-tension cycle by promoting a parasympathetic response in the body through precise manual techniques that encourage the neuromuscular junction back to healthy function, reduce resting muscle tension and spasm, and move metabolic waste products, which irritate nerves, out of muscle tissue fibers.

Athletic and workplace activities place stresses on the body. Specialized bodywork methods calm the nervous system and reduce tension, tenderness & soreness post-event. Sports massage is a maintenance full-body session using various techniques (sports massage stroke, myofascial & neuromuscular technique) to stimulate improved performance and recovery. It is particularly significant for those with active lifestyles by maintaining tissue flexibility and muscle relaxation.
You don't need to be a sports performer to benefit from Sports Massage Therapy. It’s beneficial to anyone looking to improve their range of motion, increase flexibility, relieve muscle aches caused by recurrent activity, and manage any pain associated with specific movements or sports

GENERAL BENEFITS OF
THERAPEUTIC SPORTS MASSAGE
• Decreases anxiety, stress, and/or depression
• Enhances sense of well-being and mental focus
• Improves sleep patterns
• Identifies areas of tension or soreness to be addressed before an injury occurs
•Provides kinesthetic feedback that helps create a positive
state of mind; that is, athletes feel muscles relax and joints decompress, leading to a greater sense of ease with movement
• Improved range of motion
• Improved general tissue flexibility and muscle relaxation
• Reduction of muscle cramps and spasms
If you are a sports performer of any level, a sports-specific massage can be beneficial at various stages of participation. For example:
The conditioning/training phase
Thai Yoga Massage
This traditional method combines elements of yoga, assisted stretching, compression, acupressure, stimulation of energy lines, and meditation to provide a unique and powerful therapeutic experience. The work is performed in loose-fitting clothing. Practitioners may use their feet, knees, elbows, forearms, hands or fingers.
Focused acupressure is sometimes used to treat blocked areas on the body, and this stimulates the flow of wind (lom) along the sen lines. Broad pressure relaxes muscles and allows the body to unwind. Through assisted yoga, the body is able to be moved in ways that are difficult to attain through normal exercise and individual yoga practice. Relaxed, deep breathing helps to bring about proper balance and a peaceful state of mind. Finally, the practice is also a spiritual discipline since it incorporates the Buddhist principles of mindfulness (breath awareness) and loving kindness (focused compassion.) The benefits of all these techniques, when shared by skilled practitioner and a willing client, help to bring a treatment to a focused and profound level. The result of a full-body Thai session is often an exciting and powerful mind/body experience, bringing both the receiver and the giver to greater states of physical and mental well-being.
Individualized holistic treatment is at the heart of Thai healing arts, and the work should be administered in this way in order to be fully effective. Accomplished Thai therapists continually practice and study with a variety of teachers throughout their entire careers. They “listen” to the body of each client as they work; they learn to sense energy flow and blockages; and they rely on intuition, sensitivity and stillness to guide them through each treatment.
