Hakomi Bodywork

“Consciousness needs to be on board for true, reparative change to happen” ~ Jules Harris

This highly collaborative therapeutic modality incorporates hands-on work in the form of massage, structural work, movement and body awareness. Clients generally remained clothed for these sessions. With this style of bodywork, mindfulness is a key ingredient. Mindfulness, as used in this setting, is “assisted self study”:  we take the time to simply allow & study the client’s experience before we  “do” anything about it.  We slow down, as I blend touch and verbal dialogue,  so that we can explore what is being expressed in the body through sensation & felt experience.  Learn more about how you inhabit the body you live in!

The goal of this work is not to release or fix or get rid of… it is to get to know WHAT IS”  ~ Morgan Holford

Swedish Massage

This is what most folks think of when they imagine relaxing, therapeutic, stress-reducing massage.  Using a series of techniques and long, gliding & kneading strokes, as well as gentle joint movement,  this massage style offers a deep sense of well being and restoration.  Pressure can range from very light to deeply nurturing, depending on your needs & preferences on any given day.

(30, 60, 90 & 120 minute sessions)

Deep Tissue

This massage is best for addressing specific, painful, “trouble spots” in your body. I use slow, deliberate strokes that focus pressure on layers of muscles, tendons, &  other tissues deep under your skin.  Generally, this massage style is utilized on specific areas of the body & focuses on realigning deeper layers of muscle & connective tissue.  Deep tissue massage can be therapeutic in helping to relieving chronic patterns of tension and helping with muscle injuries.

Hot Stone Massage

For this style of massage, I use warmed Mexican Beach Stones as massage tools as well as allow them to rest on areas of the body that deepen your sense of relaxation. Used along with other massage techniques, hot stones can be quite soothing and relaxing as they transmit heat deep into the body.

ISUN Gemstone Journey

Using locally crafted ISUN Gemstone Oils alongside beautiful, colored “gem”stones, this exquisite massage is a journey unto itself!  Deeply relaxing, balancing and nourishing, this massage is quite special.

(60, 90 & 120 minute sessions only)

Aromatherapy Massage

Aromatherapy is the use of essential oils to promote healing and a feeling of well-being and relaxation.  Essential oils are extracted from various parts of herbs &  plants and contain all the properties of the plants themselves. The essential oils are blended with my carrier oil or lotion. You may a choose which essential oils you would like to incorporate into your massage.

Pediatric Massage

Children of all ages have just as many indications for receiving massage therapy as adults. Children need nurturing touch to grow and reach their full potential. Pediatric massage can aid in children’s restful sleep, support their stress reduction and provide comfort for growing pains.  Plus, “it just feels good”, as one 11 year old client says!

 I request that a parent/guardian remain in the massage office for the full duration of the service for all children 16 years old and younger.
