I offer multiple modalities and oftentimes I weave them all into the same massage. My specialities include; fascial stretch therapy, oncology massage and manual lymphatic drainage. I can also include cupping therapy, kinesio taping and myofascial release within your session.
I provide a thorough intake and depending on your goals I can make a recommendation (or two) and we can come up with a plan that works for you!
FST is a form of table-based assisted stretching that focuses on the fascia and joint capsule to achieve optimal strength, flexibility, pain relief and performance. It is a pain-free method of stretching, typically performed on a massage table, that can provide almost instant results. Please come to your session wearing stretchy or loose fitting clothing as this style is received with clothes on.
Oncology massage makes adaptations for the side effects of treatment from chemotherapy, radiation, and surgeries. It is a gentle massage geared towards “comfort care.” This means the session will be customized to your unique situation. Some people come in exhausted and stressed while others come in with specific range-of-motion goals. Generally you can experience a greater sense of well-being, increased energy, less pain, more ease in movement and better sleep. Please note, this will not be a deep tissue massage!
Manual Lymphatic Drainage, or MLD, encourages the natural drainage of the lymph. MLD is gentle, rhythmic and a deeply relaxing service. The lymphatic system can be thought of as the “garbage disposal system” of the body that clears out cellular debris (the body’s excess waste). By receiving MLD you can help your body clear out stagnant fluid to support your immune system, lessen inflammation and improve healing time from surgeries/injuries. It is also often used to help restore flow in cases of lymphedema (chronic swelling) which can result when lymph nodes are removed due to cancer treatment.
