PUT YOUR BODY
IN GOOD HANDS
Release, Relax, Unwind
The key to my practice is relief from pain and stress the natural way. I take great pleasure in helping individuals get relief from chronic and often debilitating pain so that they can get on with normal daily life and activity. Neuromuscular therapy helps people deal with their pain without drugs or surgery. Injury, repetitive use, or stress make our muscles vulnerable to a cycle of pain set off by simple everyday movements such as lifting, bending, reaching, exercise or accidents. When that occurs we demand immediate relief, not simply masking of the symptoms through the use of drugs. By applying neuromuscular therapy techniques to specific pain sites caused by soft tissue injury, distress, or other skeletal muscle tension, I can reduce or eliminate the level of pain and speed the healing process. It works well within the scope of a physician's treatment regimen for pain and injury.

you touch everything."

Combines a variety of massage techniques such as traditional Swedish massage, compression, friction and trigger point release therapy to form an extremely effective method of relieving pain. Through specific application of these techniques to the pain site and referred pain areas, neuromuscular therapists restore muscular tone and balance, improve the drainage of blood and lymph, and nourish tissues through increasing blood flow and decreasing abnormally high neurological stimulation in the pain area.
By creating suction and negative pressure, cupping massage is used to soften tight muscles and tone attachments, loosen adhesion and lift connective tissue. It also brings hydration and blood flow to body tissues and drains excessive fluids and toxins by opening lymphatic pathways. Almost every area of body responds to this unique therapy that provides a profound state of relaxation. Your body comes alive and moves with new ease.
DEEP TISSUE MASSAGE
Deep tissue massage focuses on realigning deeper layers of muscles and connective tissue. It is especially helpful for chronically tense and contracted areas such as stiff necks, low back tightness, and sore shoulders. Some of the same strokes are used as in classic massage therapy, but the movement is slower and the pressure is deeper and concentrated on areas of tension and pain.
At your request, you can also receive Swedish massage or chair massage. Some businesses and institutions have booked me to offer on-site chair massage to their employees. If this is something you wish to do, please call to discuss how to set up an event.
