My style of massage is very different from what you would get from a regular spa massage. I put years of training and effort to create my own style. I’m also learning new ones every day to bring you what is better for your body. I adjust accordingly with your level of comfort and pressure, even when your level of comfort is lighter pressure I would be working your muscles on a deeper level. I say that my massages are 80% therapeutic and 20% relaxation. I combine both to give you a very different experience. I also include Cupping, Guasha, Stretching, and other tools that may help me give you a better therapeutic experience.
- 60 Minutes Therapeutic Bodywork: $80
- 120 Minutes Therapeutic Bodywork: $160
- Cupping Add-On: *included
- Guasha: *included (if necessary or you request it)
- Aromatherapy Add-On: $10
A note about Time: While I usually charge $80 for one hour, I sometimes take more than one hour… usually getting to 90 minutes (*if not contraindicated). In that case, I would only charge you $80 dollars only but you have to be prepared to spend at least 90 minutes with me plus any traveling/cleaning/interview time. I don’t rush in my Therapy and this ultimately would benefit you.
- Neuromuscular Therapy (Trigger Point)
- Neuromuscular therapy is a combination of modalities like Trigger Point Therapy and Proprioceptive Neuromuscular Facilitation (PNF). Neuromuscular Therapy is a specialized form of deep tissue massage in which digital pressure and friction are used to release areas of tension, weakness, or spasms in the muscle. These areas are called tender or trigger points and are the cause of muscular pain symptoms.
- Myofascial Release Therapy
- Myofascial Release is a therapy for the treatment of skeletal muscle immobility and pain. The method engages the myofascial tissue to slowly release the restricted fascia.
- Cupping Therapy
- Cupping therapy is a form of alternative medicine in which a local suction is created on the skin with the application of cups. Its practice mainly occurs in Asia but also in Eastern Europe, the Middle East, and Latin America.
- Gua Sha
- Gua Sha (Chinese: 刮痧), is part of traditional Chinese medicine (TCM) in which a tool is used to scrape people’s skin to produce light petechiae. Practitioners believe that gua sha releases unhealthy bodily matter from blood stasis within sore, tired, stiff, or injured muscle areas to stimulate new oxygenated blood flow to the areas, thus promoting metabolic cell repair, regeneration, healing, and recovery.
- Swedish Massage
- Swedish Massage, it is a classic massage that will ease your stress and allow you to slip into a calm state of relaxation. It is exceptionally beneficial for increasing the level of oxygen in the blood, decreasing muscle toxins, improving circulation, improving the immune system and flexibility while easing tension.
- Stretching (PNF)
- PNF (Proprioceptive Neuromuscular Facilitation) is a type of stretching that relies on reflexes to produce deeper stretches that increase flexibility, doing this triggers the inverse myotatic reflex, a protective reflex that calms the muscle to prevent injury.
