Shiatsu is a Japanese healing art done on a mat on the floor. The client is fully clothed. At the start of your session we do a Hara organ assessment. This modality is based on Traditional Chinese Medicine and Anma Therapy. Passive stretching, as well as direct finger pressure along the meridian system, is used to increase your natural energetic flow throughout your body.

Myofacial Release works on your body’s Fascial System to release chronic holding patterns, caused by emotional or physical trauma. Releasing these adhesions can help with restricted range of motion, tingling, numbness, chronic pain, and general malaise.
Each session starts with an assessment of your body’s alignment as well as any concerns or goals. The session unfolds organically, sometimes requiring a light touch, other times more direct pressure is needed. We meet your body at its points of holding and offer it a space to unwind. No oil is used during a Myofacial Release session.
Swedish Massage can help with stress relief, chronic pain, constipation, hyperactivity, low back pain, migraines, neck pain, nervous disorders, poor concentration, poor flexibility, premenstrual syndrome, relaxation and stimulation of blood and lymph flow.
The therapist uses cream or oil and the client, covered with a sheet and/or blanket, lays on a massage table. Only the area of the body being worked on is exposed.
