Massage Modalities offered by Debra

~Advanced Myoskeletal Techniques

Myoskeletal therapy is based on the scientific fact that our bodies are self-regulating, self-healing organisms. This type of treatment requires the client to participate in specific flexing, stretching and breathing techniques in an effort to realign the spine and sacrum, and decrease chronic pain, muscular tension and holding patterns. The results are amazing!

~ Barefoot Massage (Ashiatsu Oriental Bar Therapy)

"The deepest, most luxurious form of barefoot massage on the planet." Utilizing parallel bars on the ceiling for balance and leverage, the therapist uses body weight and bare feet to provide a deep and relaxing massage. This type of bodywork is like none other. Ashi is perfect for the person who may suffer from chronic back pain, tight hamstrings or simply prefers deep bodywork.

~ Craniosacral Therapy

The craniosacral system consists of the membranes and cerebrospinal fluid that surround and protect the brain and the spinal cord. Restrictions or imbalances in the craniosacral system can potentially cause any number of sensory, motor, or neurological imbalances. A CST session is so gentle that it is suitable for babies, children, and the elderly, as well as adults and people in fragile or acutely painful conditions. Some of the many conditions successfully worked with are: Migraines and Headaches, Chronic Neck and Back pain, TMJ, Scoliosis, Spinal Cord injuries, Post Traumatic Stress, Motor Coordination Impairments, Ear problems, Learning Disabilities, ADD/ADHD, Autism, Infantile Disorders, and many other conditions

~ Customized Therapeutic Massage

This type of massage is for the person who has stress, knots, tension, hyper contracted muscles, decreased range of motion, tenderness, or pain. It promotes relaxation, improves circulation and leaves you with a sense of well-being.

~ Deep Tissue Massage

Deep Tissue massage is designed to relieve severe tension in the muscle and the connective tissue or fascia. This type of massage focuses on the muscles located below the surface of the top muscles. Deep tissue massage is often recommended for individuals who experience consistent pain, are involved in heavy physical activity, such as athletes, and patients who have sustained physical injury.

~ Dry Brushing

A full body dry brushing can be added to any service, and also goes great with the body wraps. A bath brush is used on dry skin to exfoliate skin, as well as increase lymph flow. The therapeutic benefits of this are amazing! Your skin will breathe, feel and look better. Brushes are sold with this treatment for $5, as skin brushing is a great addition to your daily skin care routine.

~ Ear Candling

Ear Candling (a.k.a. Ear Coning) is a cleansing technique used for cleaning the ears and head to promote a healthy atmosphere in the ears, sinus cavities and throat. The process removes excessive ear wax and impurities and can regulate pressure, assist with post nasal drip, sinusitis, migraines, some forms of hearing loss, and restoration of equilibrium. Ear candling is a non-invasive, gentle procedure that is safe for adults and children of all ages.

~ Exfoliating Coconut Body Wrap

This is a spa-type treatment which begins with a full body dry brushing (see above for description). Warm 100% pure coconut oil is then slathered all over your body before the wrap is applied - with heat, to let it all soak in. You will leave with new found energy and your skin will feel amazing!

~ Myofascial Release

Myofascial release is a form of soft tissue therapy used to treat somatic dysfunction and accompanying pain and restriction of motion. This is accomplished by relaxing contracted muscles, increasing circulation, increasing venous and lymphatic drainage, and stimulating the stretch reflex of muscles and overlying fascia.

~ Nurturing Pregnancy Massage (pre/post)

Pregnancy massage is usually recommended after the first trimester and focuses on the special needs of the mother-to-be. Many common conditions such as low back pain, swelling of hands and feet, headaches, insomnia, leg cramps, and sciatic pain can be relieved through regular massages throughout the second and third trimesters. Overall goals of pregnancy massage include reducing stress, promoting relaxation, and preparing or restoring the muscles used during childbirth. This is a nurturing massage appropriate for pre- and post-natal mommies.

~ Raindrop Technique

Raindrop Technique is a method of using Vita Flex/reflexology, massage techniques and powerful essential oils applied on various locations of the body to bring it structural and electrical alignment. It is designed to bring balance to the body with its relaxing and mild application. It will help align the energy centers of the body and release them if blocked, without using hard pressure or trying to force the body to change. This service is an additional $15, to cover the cost of the high quality oils used.

~ Reiki

Reiki is one of the more widely known forms of energy healing. A simple laying-on-of-hands, Reiki promotes deep relaxation while stimulating the body's natural healing systems, promoting wellness, energy balancing, and stress reduction.

~ Sports Massage / Athletic Massage

Sports massage focuses on increasing blood and lymphatic fluid flow, reducing and eliminating pain as well as tender trigger points, and increasing range of motion of the affected area. Sports massages can be broken into 4 distinct types - the pre-event sports massage, the post-event sports massage, the restorative sports massage and the rehabilitative sports massage. As the names indicate, each type of sports massage has a different focus for the athlete as they are delivered at different times during their training and performance schedule.

~ Stone Massage

A stone massage uses cold or water-heated stones to apply pressure and heat to the body. Stones coated in oil can also be used by the therapist delivering various massaging strokes. The hot stones used are commonly river stones which over time, have become extremely polished and smooth. As the stones are placed along the recipient's back, they help to retain heat which then deeply penetrates into the muscles, releasing tension.

~ Swedish Massage

Swedish massage is a "light and flowy" massage that can help to relax muscles, increase circulation, remove metabolic waste products, help the recipient gain a better awareness of their body. It can help reduce emotional and physical stress and is often recommended as part of a regular program for stress management, anxiety/depression or insomnia.
