Massage and Energy Work

Massage and Energy Work

Integrative massage and energy work modalities can relieve a lot of physical and emotional pain, stress, and holding. Benefits include improved sleep, digestion, circulation, immune system function, clearer skin, reduced blood pressure, and can assist in injury or trauma recovery.

Abhyanga (Ayurvedic Massage)

Abhyanga is the traditional Ayurvedic oil massage wherein warm herbal oil is applied with gentle circular strokes to the entire body, head, and feet. This deeply nourishing treatment aims to pacify vata dosha through the absorption of the herbal oil into the body, calming the mind and nervous system. It also benefits the circulatory, lymphatic, and digestive systems, promoting better health and well-being on many levels. This treatment is recommended on a regular basis (even daily, as part of your at-home self-care routine), as well as in preparation for a Pancha Karma cleanse. Suitable for all constitutional types.

Swedish Massage

For stress relief, relaxation and rejuvenation of the mind, body and spirit. Deeply nourishing, promotes detoxification and circulation. I incorporate light-to-deep pressure, as needed, with a loving touch. I approach the body holistically and aim to relax the nervous system, integrating different massage techniques as needed and working from head to toe, but will also address pain or tension in specific areas through some focused work. Nutritive oils and aromatherapy (optional) can assist to nourish and calm the entire system. May incorporate stretching, myofascial release, and energy work.

Polarity Therapy

Polarity therapy Core, Pelvic and Diaphragm Release sessions can help facilitate your body’s release of emotional holding and armoring (sometimes life-long) in the sympathetic nervous system and specific centers on the body, to improve digestion and structural alignment, reduce stress and promote overall well-being and re-alignment with the universal life-force. Incorporates the ultrasonic gift of toning to invite more coherence and clarity at a molecular level and throughout the organs and tissues. Sattvic presence, with attention on polar reflex points and nerve cell clusters, is offered to allow the free-flow of energy currents so your body can to return to more wholeness, peace and well-being.

Prenatal Massage

I love giving massage to mamas-to-be! I’ve trained specifically in pre-natal massage, and know about what your body needs, and also the contraindicated points and conditions. I do pregnancy massage frequently and love nourishing you during this special time.

Somatic Emotional Clearing

This special modality works with the nervous system and transpersonal psychology, facilitating the client with a deeper awareness of physical blocks, and thereby releasing them by increasing presence in the body in a safe space. Assisted by some gentle holds, this clothing-on therapy can feel like a guided meditation, as I ask questions to guide you deeper into awareness of your own physical sensations while offering support. When a trauma occurred in the past, it may have caused a body armoring, a chronic tension in a certain area, that can cause emotional and physical pain and discomfort for years. By bringing your attention to these areas in a safely held container, they can begin to dissolve, and you can come more fully into being present, whole, and happy through your entire being. This therapy is client-led, and there are many tools we may call upon during the session. I’d be happy to talk with you more about this powerful technique.

Craniosacral Balancing

A gentle modality offers very subtle pressure to the head, face, spine and sacrum to address restriction in the flow of cerebrospinal fluid, calming and nourishing the central nervous system. This is clothing-on treatment, unless combined with other modalities.

Infared Sauna

I have a one-person infrared sauna that you can add-on to any session. This promotes deep relaxation, pain relief, and cellular detox, and supports your immune system, skin, and metabolic function.
