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.
Deep Tissue Massage
Deep Tissue Massage is a form of bodywork that aims to relieve tension in the deeper layers of tissue in the body. Deep Tissue Massage is a highly effective method for releasing chronic stress areas due to misalignment, repetitive motions, and past lingering injuries. Due to the nature of the deep tissue work, open communication during the session is crucial to make sure you don't get too uncomfortable. Keep in mind that soreness is pretty common after the treatment, and that plenty of water should be ingested to aid with the flushing and removal of toxins that will have been released from the deep tissue during the session.
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.
Sports Massage is a type of massage designed for highly active people who engage in athletics. Engaging in sports is harsh on the body and can often lead to injuries in both the short and long term. Sports Massage enhances performance and prolongs a sports career by helping to prevent injury, reduce pains and swelling in the body, relax the mind, increase flexibility, and dramatically improve recovery rates. Sports Massage is also highly effective in aiding the rapid recovery of an athlete from an injury by encouraging greater kinesthetic awareness and in turn promoting the body's natural immune function.
While you complete a short health information form, I will set up a massage table and supplies. Lighting, soothing music playing softly in the background, and your choice of aromatherapy scents will help you focus on reaching a deeper state of relaxation. I have a great selection of music and aromatherapy; however, I understand that everyone has their own unique tastes. I am there for you; you choose the environment that best relaxes you. I will also ask what results you are looking for, such as relaxation or pain relief, and i will design a massage to fit your needs.
I will leave the room to wash up while you undress to your comfort level and lie on the massage table between a fresh set of linens. All areas will be covered except the area being worked on. Private areas are never exposed. You may ask any questions at any time during your massage. If at any time you desire lighter/deeper pressure, more/less focus on any area, or wish to end the session, please let me know.
L&I and Motor Vehicle Accidents
Injuries to the soft tissues in the neck such as whiplash are extremely common following an auto accident. An effective method to help a person suffering from a whiplash injury is Massage therapy. Massage increases circulation, and promotes healing. Massage helps heal pain after soft tissue injuries. When a person experiences whiplash symptoms they may be experiencing symptoms such as poor range of motion in the head or neck. Stiffness and swelling also headaches, irritability, and sharp and dull pain with movement of neck, shoulders and head can all be symptoms. These can be mild to severe depending on the extent of your injury.
Knee and ankle injuries are also common in auto accidents. Massage therapy can help again by relieving pain and promoting healing of the soft tissues of the joints in both knees and ankles.
If you've been in an accident Massage treatments can help you restore physical function, lessen or alleviate pain, and help with emotional and physical relief.
