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. I can add in connective tissue massage techniques, hot stone therapy, or certain CranioSacral techniques as needed.
CranioSacral Therapy is a gentle yet powerful technique that is effective in releasing neck pain, back pain, and mental stress (among other things). It does this by optimizing the movement of cerebrospinal fluid through the spine and around the skull. Developed by physician John Upledger, this therapy provides a very soothing and relaxing healing experience.
I combine myofascial release, trigger point, neural manipulation, and CranioSacral techniques to release tight muscles, reduce pain, and inprove range of motion.
