Stone Massage can be a wonderful
but may not be for everyone on your list. This kind of therapy is
wonderful for detoxifying the body, as the heat deeply penetrates
muscles and forces metabolic and cellular waste into the lymphatic
system. Most people's bodies can tolerate this extra amount of
circulation by drinking extra fluids, yet some can not.
with these conditions may need to seek approval from their Doctor prior
to scheduling a full Hot Stone Massage session:
* Recent Injury - when your
body is inflamed,
avoid any kind of massage for at least 24-72 hours
* Renal Diseases OR
Rheumatoid Arthritis -
select a regular massage, because the extra heat can
put too much of a
load on the kidneys
* Deep Vein
* Pregnancy (although warm
stones are a
possibility, most mamas run hot already and don't even
think about heat!)

is generally performed on the feet, but can also include hands and ears, to stimulate reflex points
of the entire body. This particular method combines whole hand massage techniques & foot and toe stretches with a hydrating plant-derived massage cream & aromatic oils for a deep relaxation response.
60 minute session may include a foot soak and sugar scrub prior to the bodywork. (Sounds great, right?!) Learn more about how it works.

Therapy (CST) is a gentle, hands-on
therapy that helps to release restrictions in the head, neck and
spine. CST is effective for a wide range of medical problems
associated with pain and dysfunction: migraine headaches, TMJ
syndrome, chronic neck & back pain, sinus problems, chronic
fatigue, and fibromyalgia. For more detailed information,
visit the Upledger
Most often, I utilize CST in the Therapeutic Massage listed
above to address aching muscles directly, as well as deeper lying
restrictions, but it can be very helpful by itself.
Initial CST Visit must allow for at
least 60 minutes.

Massage Sessions for
Massage, also known as Pregnancy
Massage, is a way to ease the mother-to-be’s aches, pains, and edema
during the child-bearing months. This is performed in a side-lying
position with lots of pillows that create a fluffy cloud of comfort.
When she is over 34 weeks or so, 90 minutes is ideal for extra
stretches and techniques due to the added pressure she's
experiencing. FYI, it is a myth that massage during the first
trimester of pregnancy will induce a miscarriage -

performed immediately following childbirth and through the week
thereafter, provided that the birth went smoothly. If any surgery
including C-Section took place, follow the orders of your doctor and
perhaps receive this after 6 weeks. This massage is so wonderful and
extremely appreciated by Mom, who is transitioning into caring for a
beautiful new child (or children for that matter). The new
responsibility of breastfeeding can particularly aggravate mom's neck,
shoulder and back muscles. Also, we will focus on the abdomen to assist
the internal organs' proper placement.

Massage for Couples Class, a fantastic opportunity to increase your knowledge of the
"dos and don'ts" of bodywork in a private, clothed session.
What you can expect to learn:
-Contraindications (health-related reasons to avoid massage)
-How to setup a relaxing environment
-Proper body mechanics (how to give proper pressure without just using hand strength)
-Techniques for the most common areas of complaint (neck/shoulders, lower back, & feet) via a hands-on demonstration followed by time for each partner to practice briefly before moving on to the next topic
Please note: As everyone will remain clothed for the duration of the class, please wear loose-fitting clothing so we can easily access the neck/shoulders, lower back and feet. T-shirts, tank tops, sports bras, sweat pants, yoga pants, sport shorts are appropriate. All cotton or cotton/lycra blends are most appropriate. Please avoid slick
materials such as nylons & certain dry-fit clothing as working through these materials may impede proper contact & pressure application.
You'll receive a handout to bring home for review. Anyone who participates in these classes needs to review & fill out an Office Policy as well as the Client Intake Form, as per usual client procedure.
Follow-up sessions can be arranged as review, if desired.
