Clinical Integrative Massage
This is a customized service that may include several modalities to enhance the healing experience for the receiver. While relaxation techniques may be used, more commonly the use of neuromuscular techniques, stretching, and self care instructions are provided.
Trigger Point Therapy
Trigger points are areas in a muscle with exquisite sensation that may refer to a another area of the body in mostly predictable patterns. Therapy for trigger points can sometimes be uncomfortable but should never take your breath away. Please communicate well with your therapist.
Myofascial techniques are performed using no lubricant and used to target specific sensory nerves in the body that may be responsible for chronic pain perception. The technique is very slow and patient and is used to address the connective tissue system that surrounds every muscle fiber, organ, and nerve in our body that may experience dysfunction due to trauma or overuse.
Pregnancy is not a pathology but an experience of significant change in the body in a short period of time. More often than not, people are apprehensive about providing massage to pregnant women due to the many myths out there. Nurturing touch is imperative during this time for development and to reduce stress for the mom-to-be. Stress is the main cause of most complications during pregnancy. All trimesters of pregnancy and high risk pregnant women are welcome to receive massage without incident, despite the myths that have been circulated for decades. I do have additional certifications in high risk pregnancy massage.

'I want to be so kind it echoes backwards in time and undoes the things that hurt you. I want to be so kind it radiates from me. I want to be so kind that I make someone else find faith in humanity again. I am only one person and only capable of so much, but I can be kind, and sometimes, I believe that because I can be kind, I can change the world with a ripple effect.'~Angie
