A massage session attends to the individual, not only in the physical aspect of the body but also in achieving a feeling of balance and wholeness. At Body In Balance I offer several styles of massage and body work, including Deep Tissue & Swedish Massage, Somatic Movement, CranioSacral, Reiki, Trigger Point & Myofascial Release.
Deep Tissue & Swedish Massage
Deep Tissue & Swedish Massage uses long gliding strokes along the body to bring about deep relaxation, allowing the receiver to let go of stress and tension. Deep tissue, as the name implies, aims at a deeper level of the muscle tissue and is more focused on specific areas of pain and tension. Commonly, Swedish and deep tissue massage are used together in a session, which may consist of a full body massage or may concentrate on areas of concern. Massage therapy has many documented benefits beyond moderation of stress and physical discomforts and should be considered a vital aspect of your health maintenance program. Not only is massage beneficial, it just plain feels good.
A gentle, light touch is used in the detection and correction of malfunctions in the body. The therapist works with the meningeal lining, which surrounds the brain and spinal cord. This lining is attached to the inside of the cranium bones and the base of the spine, or sacrum. By using a very light pressure and movement on different areas of the head and body, restrictions may be released. CranioSacral Therapy may open sinus cavities to allow fluids to flow correctly, relieve contracted muscles and impinged nerves, veins and arteries. As stress on the central nervous system is released, the body works to self correct and heal itself. During a session the client remains fully clothed.
Hot Stone Massage
A relaxing massage using warm black basalt stones. Muscles, aches and worries melt under the heated stones leaving you completely relaxed.
A therapeutic massage modality which utilizes gentle stretching of the fascia to produce an effect upon the soft tissues, minimizing pain and restoring movement. Fascia is a connective tissue that forms a three dimensional web around and through all muscles, bones, nerves and organs. Malfunctions within the fascia web, due to trauma, postural habits or inflammation can create a binding of the fascia, resulting in abnormal pressure, which can initiate pain or malfunctions at other sites throughout the body. Myofascial Release sessions are individualized to treat the root of the problem and return the client to a relaxed pain free and active lifestyle.
Prenatal Massage is a gentle and nurturing massage for the expectant mother. In the early weeks of pregnancy the woman may lay on her back and her abdomen. As her belly begins to grow she will receive massage in a side-lying and semi-reclined position. It is always best to consult with your Doctor prior to receiving a prenatal massage.
An ancient healing art form recently rediscovered. Reiki works with universal life force energy, also known as Chi, Ki or Qui. The therapist uses a gentle placement of hands on the client's body redirecting energy, so that blocked areas may be released, allowing the energy to flow more efficiently. This assists in alleviating malfunctions in the body and gives the individual a wonderful sense of overall well being. The client remains fully clothed during a Reiki session.
Somatic Movement uses gentle motion to facilitate the release of chronic muscle tension. The practitioner, while in a meditative state, guides the client's body through various movements, such as rocking, weighing or lifting, and light traction. A session may leave the client feeling more integrated, whole and graceful, and imparts a deep sense of calm and peacefulness. Somatic movement may help to alleviate pain and dysfunction throughout the body.
Sports massage is a form of massage, which utilizes specific strokes to help athletes obtain maximum performance and physical conditioning by increasing power, endurance and mobility both before and after an event or exercise. Sports massage can accelerate the healing process, increase range of motion, reduce adhesion and reduce swelling, bruising and pain. Sports massage is helpful for anyone who routinely stretches their physical limits through movement.
A trigger point is a knot or wad of muscle fibers staying in a hard contraction, never relaxing. A trigger point affects a muscle by keeping it both tight and weak. Quite often trigger points send pain to other areas of the body rather than directly at the cause. Trigger points can cause neck and jaw pain, headaches, backaches and numerous other aches and pains. By working the trigger point repeatedly one can often find relief from pain.
My love of massage began when as a child I would trade back rubs with my sister.
I am fascinated by the human body. It's intricacy awes and inspires me. I believe our bodies have a well of untapped potential. My interest is in exploring all of these possibilities. The field of massage and bodywork is exciting to me because there are so many different modalities to study and learn. Some of my specialties are Somatic Movement Therapy, CranioSacral Therapy and Myofascial Release. We are so busy in our fast paced world that we lose touch with ourselves. We live too much in our heads until our bodies break down. Massage re-unites us with ourselves; mind, body and spirit. I believe in the power of touch. I hope that somehow as a bodyworker I can have a positive influence on each client's ability to experience life.
At Body In Balance I have tried to create a space for my clients where they are able to let go, relax, renew and refresh their body, mind and spirit. Whether you would like a relaxing massage or a session focused on areas of pain and discomfort, I am here to help you be more at home in your body. I have training in many modalities.
