We are slowly losing our agility. We have our necks in a downward position for much of the day looking at a screen, we sit too much, our cars help us reverse without having to turn our heads...and this trend continues.
Massage can help release muscle tension and return muscle suppleness and flexibility. This is so important! Joseph Pilates (the father of Pilates movement) said, "You are only as old as your spine". He was right!

Sports massage uses deep tissue techniques to relax tension, ease aching muscles and bring blood flow to the affected area which feeds the tissues and repairs them.
A sports massage is made up of a collection of vigorous and deep tissue massage techniques. I want to learn about your daily routines, sports, and lifestyle so I can determine what is causing you discomfort. I do this through an interview, examination and hands on assessment.
Sports massage is beneficial for athletes and non-athletes. Athletes will benefit from regular sports massage while training to keep their muscles pliant. Non-athletes can develop muscle pain through their daily routines, exercise and hobbies which deep tissue massage can alleviate.
My aim with Swedish massage is to treat you to an hour of complete physical and mental relaxation. I want you to feel relaxed, soothed, light, and clear headed when you leave; as if you’ve had a holiday!

My aim in pregnancy massage is to both pamper the mother and addresses any issues that are creating discomfort.
Through interview and hands on assessment I can determine which areas most require attention and focus. Using long, soothing, relaxing massage strokes, the circulation is stimulated bringing nutrients to the muscles and easing aches and pains in the areas that need them most – like the shoulders, lower back and legs.
Each treatment is tailored to your body and your requirements so you can expect lasting relaxation.
I believe gentle, holistic treatments promote healing and encourage better health. Perfect for the mother to be!
