"I don't see my client on the table as someone to be fixed, but as a being to be returned to harmony and balance. It is important to remember that we do not heal but facilitate the healing."
"Even if you've tried some of these treatments in the past, and not felt satisfied, do consider trying my version of it--I'm sure you'll see the difference it makes when the technique is tailored just for you. My massages are never rote or repetitive, but always created in the moment, responding to your bodily response."
SIGNATURE HOT STONES MASSAGE (75 minutes, $109)
As the name implies, this 75-minute, incredibly fabulous experience involves the use of water treated, river bed stones, heated to therapeutic temperature, and placed along certain nerve and muscle pathways to evoke your inherent kundalini energy. First, I pre-treat your muscles using touch and specific oils for best response.
Hot Stones Massage has many benefits: easy relaxation of the muscles, stress reduction, release of toxins and pain reduction. Improving circulation throughout the body promotes overall health, of course. But therapists also use this massage to relieve certain health issues as arthritis, anxiety, stress, back pain, depression, insomnia and problems related to blood circulation.
SWEDISH FULL BODY MASSAGE(75 minutes, $99) Experts estimate that upwards of ninety percent of disease is stress related. And perhaps nothing ages us faster; internally and externally, than high stress.
The main purpose of Swedish Massage is to increase the oxygen flow in the blood and release toxins from the muscles. It also stimulates the skin and nervous system and soothes the nerves themselves at the same time. It reduces stress, both emotional and physical.
Swedish Massage shortens recovery time from muscular strain by flushing the tissues of lactic acid, uric acid and other metabolic wastes. It increases circulation without increasing heart load. It stretches the ligaments and tendons keeping them supple and pliable.
This head-to-toe continuous touch massage assists your body to balance its natural energy flow through pathways known as meridians and chakras. Free flowing energy gently aligns with healthy vibrations leaving you feeling relaxed, uplifted, rejuvenated and inspired. Note that you might lie face down for the entire session.
This healing, nurturing, motivating tool can only offer the highest form of loving. Many ailments, injuries and conditions are greatly relieved as well as the discomforts associated with managing a life of illness or the imbalance of health and wellness.
Aunty Margaret, one of the oldest and most widely recognized teachers of Lomi Lomi, defines Lomi Lomi as, "The Loving Touch - a connection of heart, hands and soul with the Source of All Life!"
This combination of Hawaiian Lomi Lomi and Hot Stones Massage (described above) features touches and techniques of both disciplines. The benefits of heat from the hot stones combined with the long, slow strokes of Lomi Lomi and not a single muscle group left untouched! Quite an experience that you will only appreciate once tried! Please bear in mind that you may lie face down throughout.
Four different schools of massage are mixed for this fabulous treatment (Swedish, Deep Tissue, Hot Stones and Hawaiian Lomi Lomi), addressing all your concerns from different perspectives. To fully appreciate its power, one must try it. Most find it awesome!
Experience a taste of paradise with this traditional Thai treatment combining the strokes of Swedish Massage with Thai stretching techniques using with warm herbal balls to help relax, detoxify, increase blood flow and stimulate the lymphatic fluid. The natural muslin balls are filled with such Thai herbs and spices as lemongrass, turmeric, prai, kaffir lime, camphor and tamarind. The balls are soaked, then steamed, before being pressed, rocked and rolled along the Sen Sib lines, or acupressure zones, of your body. But first, we begin with a body brush treatment to open up your pores so herbs can penetrate your skin better and quicker.
A bonus: You will take the herbal balls home with you. They can be added to a bath, whirlpool or sauna whirlpool to create a unique Thai experience at home. I will tell you how to look after them.
LEAVE IT 2 TONY(30, 60 or 90 minutes--Cost? Leave it 2 you!)
After our initial consultation, I will combine certain treatments together to come up with a custom massage to address your issues on that day. Every session will be unique! You may choose a 30, 60 or 90-minute session and the fee is left to your discretion.
As its name suggests, this massage has it all! In an luscious double session of 105 minutes, I mix Swedish, Hot Stones and Hawaiian Lomi Lomi Massage techniques, and others if requested, to create a unique massage particularly suited to your needs and requests. This would be an ideal gift to yourself, or another, to celebrate a special occasion or transition.
Massage therapy during pregnancy is a wonderful complementary choice for prenatal care, a healthy way to reduce stress and promote overall wellness.
Massage relieves many of the normal discomforts experienced during pregnancy, such as backaches, stiff neck, leg cramps, headaches and edema (or swelling). Also, it reduces stress on weight-bearing joints, encourages blood and lymph circulation, helps to relax nervous tension-which aids in better sleep-and can help relieve depression or anxiety caused by hormonal changes.
Women with normal, low-risk pregnancies can benefit greatly from the variety of massage techniques applied during your session. However, women in high-risk pregnancies should consult their doctor or midwife before having a massage. NOTE: If at any time during the prenatal massage you experience discomfort, you should let me know immediately.
