My personal style of Remedial Massage Therapy is a deep tissue therapy in which I track the pattern of your body and discover the pain pockets you are carrying. Using the deep sensitivity in my hands, I am able to map your body & detect the subtle (and not so subtle) places of tension that you are presenting each session. I have worked on thousands of bodies over the years,and have unlocked my unique abilities as a 'tissue technician.'
Caring and strong, with powerful hands releasing stuck tension, stress and pain…u
sing my signature style, you will feel your physical tensions and your emotional stresses fall away as I send you into a deep place of rest and renewal. A perfect blend!!! Best of all, I am covered by most Health Fund providers and bulk billing is available.
I am really passionate about combining multiple modalities within my Remedial Massage sessions to provide you with a completely customized treatment to suit your bodies specific needs. I will assess you and then offer my suggestions on the remedial bodywork treatment options that I feel will best suit your specific needs. You are unique and therefore you deserve a unique treatment! I will work with what you are comfortable with and we will work together as a team to create a session that will be meaningful and enjoyable!!! Some of the modalities I may invite you to try are…
Modern Cupping Therapy
Do you have pain in your body, niggling areas that just want some attention? Do you have sensitive areas that sometimes respond negatively to treatment or just don't seem to respond to regular massage?
Cupping therapy is one of my favorite modalities that adds another healing dimension to a massage session, or used all on its own!
I love using these incredible silicone cupping vessels to restore discordant fascia in the body. Cupping utilizes vacuum for therapeutic purposes & I find it works magic when dealing with soft tissue syndromes & myofascial problems. In plain language, they totally rock! They are a wonderful option for specific stuck spots used within my Signature Style Deep Tissue Massage.
I don't travel anywhere without bringing a set of these cups with me...to remove my tension, discomfort & fluid retention while flying, to clear up any headaches & to remove any aches and pains I might have after a work out while on the road. I love them!
I've had clients time and time again express their shock with the difference they feel in a matter of minutes on specific pain points. Often these painful spots have been bothering them on and off for years and after one cupping session, they feel ease of movement and the pain is gone. Woohoo! Success!
Some side effects you may experience after a cupping session are a deep relaxation, and the skin around the rim of the cup & the tissue within the surface area where the cup was placed may be marked. I have found that the marks can stay for a day upwards to a week, depending on the severity of the tension in that part of the body. I have cupped clients who felt incredible pain at the start of the session, responded with dark purple marks, and felt complete release by the end of the session. A few sessions later, often those areas are cupped again with no marks, and a much lower level of tension in the area to begin with. A visible improvement is seen and felt by the client and myself. Very exciting stuff! Cups demonstrate the difference felt in your body right away.
I incorporate cupping with my massage sessions as needed or as a stand alone treatment in session, so you decide. Why not try something new, you might just love it as much as I do!
Scraping Massage (Gua Sha)
Are you struggling with pain and discomfort that keeps you up at night or bothers you throughout the day? Are you scared & worried that it is only going to get worse?
Scraping is another powerful tool! Combined with my signature Deep Tissue Massage & Modern Cupping, or used all on its own, depending on what you’re after, this modality sees me using metal, crystal and resin tools in a scraping motion on the surface of your body to improve circulation & reduce your tension & pain. This is a traditional Chinese medical treatment & I have managed to free up movement & increase my clients range of motion in knees, elbows, wrists, hands, neck, shoulders, back, chest and every other surface area of the body while decreasing pain levels and congestion.
I love this modality and have seen incredible results in my clients and on my own body, in very short periods of time! I have found success in reducing the appearance of a 'dowagers hump' for example, in one session-powerful stuff!
Scraping can feel uncomfortable if the area I'm working on is sore and tense. As I tell my clients, the more sore you are, the more painful treatment can be. But as an experienced therapist, I know how to work with your individual needs and I adjust my pressure to what feels right for you. I am not a believer in 'no pain, no gain' and I strive to make each session as enjoyable as possible.
Side affects of this treatment can include surface bruising or marking which fades away in a day or so and can create a soreness to touch on the surface of the skin, much like the sensation of a Chinese burn. This can last a day or so, but in areas that I've had worked on that had caused me a lot of pain, the sore to touch feeling stayed for a couple weeks. Followed by a complete disappearance of ALL pain and numbness I was experiencing before hand. Incredible!
Some clients feel scraping is a welcome relief to their bodies & enjoy the feeling of it, as I do. Other clients feel it is a very intense experience which 'wakes up their body with new energy'. I personally love it for those hard to reach places, for the intensity of the results in such a short time frame and for the ease of movement it frees up straight after a session. Why not try it and decide for yourself!
PS. Apparently Gwyneth Paltrow & Elle Macpherson have tried it and love it so you'd be in good company!
Come visit me in my gorgeous center
Five years ago three of my besties & I got together & had a crazy idea to create a local center where individuals & families could seek support from holistic health practitioners, attend self development classes, fun & inspirational workshops, birthing classes and even buy local art & ceramics, crystals & special gifts. With a lot of support from our families, friends and clients, our dream became a reality. I am incredibly honored and humbled to be in our 5th year! If you can, book a session and come relax, take a deep breath and feel supported. Or just pop in & say hi!
