Medical Massage is not a specific technique but it caters to the medical condition presented. Deep Tissue Massage A specific type of massage therapy that concentrates on the deep layers of muscle and fascia in the body reducing chronic pain. Because deep-tissue massage increases the flow of blood through the body, it helps reduce the inflammation that causes pain. Deep-tissue massage can also help alleviate muscle tension that is often a side effect of chronic pain by loosening the tight tissue clusters.Swedish Massage Lighter touch technique sometimes with active or passive joint movement.

Myofascial Release Gentle sustained pressure into the Myofascial connective tissue restrictions to eliminate pain and restore motion. Cupping Helps to move stagnant blood and lymph, thus improving energy flow.

After giving un-medicated
Natural birth to both of my daughters and feeling the power it gave me as a woman, I knew I wanted to be involved in the field of working with pregnant women so they, too, are able to experience what I had. Soon after attending the birth of my youngest niece, I became a certified Labor Doula through DONA (Doulas Of North America). As a doula I assisted women in labor by offering them emotional and physical support during the birth of their babies. Along with this support, I also began to provide massage. I found that my patients responded to different areas of touch but I didn't know why. As a result of this, I felt it was important to learn why certain areas of a laboring body felt better being massaged than others. In 2003 I enrolled at the Connecticut Center for Massage Therapy in the Medical Massage program. Upon graduation and additional courses in pregnancy massage, I am now able to bring more complete assistance to pregnant and laboring women and to help them understand the changes in their body. I love working with expectant mothers; sharing this exciting time keeps me connected with my own birth experiences and that special time in my life.
In addition to my prenatal work
I have had the privilege to assist clients with a wide range of physical issues from ALS, cancer, stroke, surgical, to even end-of-life. The combination of my professional and personal experiences allows me to provide more wholesome massage sessions for my clients.
