I have been a Licensed Massage Therapist since 2012. My approach to Massage Therapy focuses heavily on function. This facilitates deep, longer-lasting results because I am not only focusing on the root (or roots) of the problem but, the soil that that root lives in as well. In your session I will use a wide range of modalities, peeling away layers of stress, restoring mobility to injured muscle tissue, easing stiff joints and hot spots of pain.
Some benefits of massage:
– Relieve pain and improve range of motion.
– Assist with shorter, easier labor and hospital stays for mom.
– Boost immune system by stimulating lymph flow.
– Exercise and stretch weak, tight, or atrophied muscles.
– Improve the condition of the body’s largest organ—the skin.
– Increase joint flexibility.
– Reduce depression and anxiety.
– Promote tissue regeneration, reducing scar tissue and stretch marks.
– Pump oxygen and nutrients into tissues and organs, improving circulation.
– Reduce muscle spasms and cramping.
– Release endorphins— that work as the body’s natural painkiller.
– Relieve migraine pain.
