Massage Therapy

Massage is a successful tool for healing and has been practiced throughout the world for thousands of years. In adults as in babies, massage has many benefits from a preventive health perspective as well as stimulating the body’s own natural healing mechanisms to aide in the recovery from trauma or other physical or emotional stresses.

My massage work is Swedish based deep tissue, best appreciated by the experienced massage recipient, though I am adaptable and have a variety of techniques which are tolerated well by even the most sensitive. In the case of acute injury I recommend acupuncture to reduce any pain and inflamation prior to massage.
