Massage Therapy

Massage therapy can help release tension stored in the body and promote deep relaxation. Chronic pain, depression, stress and many other conditions can find relief with massage. I take an integrative approach to massage therapy, listening to my client’s needs and bringing in my own intuition and years of experience to each session. I draw techniques and theory from Swedish, Deep Tissue, Trigger Point & Myofascial Release, Shiatsu, Polarity & Ayurvedic massage. 

Through massage, old patterns and emotions that have been stuck in the body can be released. Massage can help reduce muscle tension, improve circulation, stimulate the lymphatic system, increase joint mobility and flexibility and promote deep relaxation. Freeing tension and stress from the body and mind, massage can bring balance to the whole system and elicit a deeper sense of peace.

I use organic products in all massage sessions. Upgrade to include Mahanaryan Oil (Ayurvedic herbal oil to soothe sore muscles and tendons) or Arnica Oil (Organic/Wild-harvested) in your massage to aid in pain relief and decrease inflammation for only $10.

Ayurvedic Abhyanga Warm Oil Massage

My favorite massage! A nourishing, grounding massage that uses warm oil all over the body. This treatment promotes lymphatic movement, joint lubrication and relaxation. It is particularly soothing for vata constitutions, or those that experience restlessness, anxiety and nervous system depletion.

NOTE: I use a lot of oil in this treatment! Please wear or bring clothes you don’t mind getting oily to your session.
