Neuromuscular Therapy

$85 per 50 minutes.  The definition of Neuromuscular Therapy (NMT) is, the utilization of static pressure on specific myofascial points to relieve pain. This technique manipulates the soft tissue of the body (muscles, tendons and connective tissue) to balance the body postural distortions through the nervous system. Injury, trauma, postural distortion or stress cause nerves to speed up their transmission, inhibiting equilibrium and making the body vulnerable to pain and dysfunction. I utilize NMT techniques based on my education and application of Travell & Simons’ “Myofascial Pain and Dysfunction: The Trigger Point Manual” principles. Your first visit will mainly be an assessment (including intake, history and orthopedic tests) and formulating a plan based on the assessment and your goals. Then, depending on the remaining time, bodywork will be initiated. Please allow up to 100 minutes for initial visit [$145]. Life can be hectic, but your health and well-being is worth it. Follow up sessions will be specific to our plan and on the previous session’s results. Because each situation is unique and the duration of pain(chronic) is varied to each individual’s experience, 3 sessions are recommended to determine if we are getting an effective and lasting outcome. Then we will re-assess and modify our plan if needed. *Please Note: Neuromuscular Therapy is performed with the client completely clothed and no medium(lotion or oil) is used. Please wear comfortable clothing, such as, what one would wear to exercise in.

Swedish Massage

$75 per 50 minutes.  Swedish Massage is a very relaxing and therapeutic style of bodywork. Using oil or lotion the therapist will massage the client utilizing the 5 basic strokes of Swedish massage at an appropriate intensity that suits the client’s comfort. Effleurage is a long, smooth, gliding, superficial stroke that introduces the area of the body to receive touch as it increases circulation and venous blood flow. Petrissage is a semi-superficial kneading movement that helps warm the tissue while it decreases tension in the muscles. Friction is a deeper movement that crosses a more local fiber tissue helping to prevent and decrease excessive scar tissue. Vibration is a fine, tremulous movement that is helpful in stimulating nerve activity. Tapotement is a lighter, rhythmic tapping or hacking movement which also stimulates the nervous system. Swedish massage has many benefits that contribute to the client’s overall feeling of well-being. By increasing circulation and assisting with returning blood flow to the heart, massage helps to increase oxygen and nutrient uptake throughout the body while it also increases the body’s efficiency to eliminate waste and toxins. Because massage includes stretching of fascia, range of motion can be improved which can help relieve painful muscles and joints and reduce stress throughout the body. *Please Note: Most forms of massage is performed on a linen covered table with the client disrobed to their level of comfort. For the client’s safety and security, only the area that is to be worked is undraped; using oil or lotion the therapist will massage the client at an appropriate intensity that suits the client’s comfort.

Deep Tissue

$80 per 50 minutes.  Deep Tissue Massage is a highly effective method for releasing chronic stress areas due to misalignment, repetitive motions, and past lingering injuries. It is a style of bodywork that focuses on the underlying causes of pain by working with the layers of the body in a way that helps the tissues to lengthen,release holding patterns and relax. Feedback during the session is crucial to make sure you don’t get too uncomfortable. Some soreness is common up to approximately 24 hours after the treatment. Remember to drink plenty of water to aid with the flushing and removal of toxins that will have been released from the deep tissue during the session; also be sure to do gentle, mindful stretching. Typically, these sessions will focus on a specific area or two; if you anticipate a whole body deep tissue, you may prefer to request a “firm” swedish massage. *Please Note: Most forms of massage is performed on a linen covered table with the client disrobed to their level of comfort. For the client’s safety and security, only the area that is to be worked is undraped; using oil or lotion the therapist will massage the client at an appropriate intensity that suits the client’s comfort.
