Ashiatsu is an ancient type of massage that creates the deepest pressure possible by the therapist holding onto bars from the ceiling, massaging with their feet and using all of their body weight.
Cupping uses negative pressure to create space between muscle and connecting tissues. This increases range of motion, reduces scar tissue, and stretches underlying fascial tissue. Cupping also signals the "rest and digest" part of the brain allowing yourself to decompress and relax beyond conscious ability.
Graston is a "scraping" technique used to reduce scar tissue, and increase range of motion. Popularly used by chiropractors and physical therapists, Graston is one of the most effective tools I use in my office.
Hot Stones are used to warm up the underlying tissue for more effective deep tissue work. Hot Stones are a great way to relax and decompress during traditional Swedish massage as well.
Massage during pregnancy is one of the best ways to relax and support your body through all the changes it is experiencing. Whether you want to lay on your side, or face down support with my state of the art bolstering system, I promise to make sure your needs are met comfortably and safely.
