The root word "Ashi" means foot and "Atsu" means pressure - "foot pressure." Many cultures utilize barefoot bodywork. I am trained in one-footed Ashiatsu Massage. This barefoot massage technique uses deep compression effleurage strokes that glide over the body. Bars are used above the head for balance. Centrifugal and centripetal forces are incorporated with push/pull, and pumping effleurage movements, which can relieve symptoms of chronic soft tissue damage. If you love deep firm pressure, you'll love this modality. Check out a video.
Thai massage is more energizing and rigorous than most other forms of massage therapy. It's also called Thai Yoga massage, because I use my hands, knees, legs, and feet to move you into a series of yoga-like postures and stretches. Ashi-Thai is Thai Yoga massage that has been modified to use Ashiatsu barefoot massage techniques & bars on the ceiling for the therapist's balance, support & leverage. Flowing and rhythmic, it passively stretches & lengthens muscles, and fascia release. No oil or lotion is applied, so you wear comfortable cloths during the session. A single Ashi-Thai massage session will help you release stress and relieve pain, and help you function more effectively at work and home.
Swedish Massage is a very relaxing and therapeutic style of bodywork. 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 bodywork are wide-ranging and include relief from aches and pains, decreased stress levels in the body, enhanced mental clarity, improved appearance, and greater flexibility. Can be customized to include Orthopedic Massage and Acupressure.
Lomi Lomi Hawaiian Therapeutic Massage - Lomi Lomi is the Hawaiian word for "massage", and it is part of a larger native Hawaiian tradition of healing and natural body care. According to Hawaiian tradition, all living beings are seeking a state of balance and love in the world. During a Lomi Lomi session, I focus on relaxing your body through gentle touch that is more rhythmical and flowing that includes gentle stretching, range of motion, rocking, forearm, and vibration. Many of my deep tissue clients prefer Lomi Lomi, since it can affect the deep tissue without the pain. Only the finest natural oils are used, such as Macadamia Nut Oil, Hazelnut, Coconut Oil, and Grape Seed Oil, which all are very nutritious for your skin. Check out a video.
Pregnancy Massage is a style of bodywork designed specifically for pregnant women. 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.
Orthopedic massage is a style of massage therapy focused on treating painful conditions that affect the soft tissues of the body. Because orthopedic massage is designed to treat medical conditions, it requires extensive training. It involves releasing tense muscles, helping to stretch and lengthen tight muscles and tendons, and decompress rigid joints. My goal is to restore full health to the soft tissues of your body, both treating your specific conditions as well as improving your overall well-being.
Acupressure is based on one the most ancient principles of healing - that simply touching a specific point on the body will release stress and improve health in the body. In an acupressure session, I apply firm pressure directly to these "points" on your body, which relieves your muscle tension and improves your circulation. This simple and powerful technique has been shown to very effective in treating headaches, backaches, and even insomnia.
Chair massage is a popular way of relieving stress and releasing tension right in your home or 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.
