The potential for blending Integrative Reflexology techniques with bodywork is a unique combination that increases the release of tight muscle and fascia. I will begin with the stimulation of specific reflex points and areas, then move to the associated muscle or part of the body. You will then feel how easily your tissue lets go!
Reflexology is intended to reduce generalized stress and help the body achieve a state of deep relaxation and harmony. Other benefits include improved circulation, immune function, skin tone, concentration and memory.
During the session, gentle pressure is applied to specific reflex points in the feet, thus stimulating the more than 7,200 nerve ending there. Benefits include:
Reduced muscle tension
Medi-Cupping Therapy is effective at healing and releasing toxins and inflammation from deep joint tissue. The suctioning power of the cups reaches into the soft tissue and works to pull those toxins towards the surface where the lymphatic system and the skin can draw them out of the body. This helps release scar tissue as well, even in old injuries. Benefits include:
Deep tissue and structural issues - old injuries and chronic movement patters
Arthritis, Tendonitis, Bursitis
Scarring - old, new, keloid, post-surgery
Loose skin and old deposits from weight loss
Lymphoedema - general and post-surgery
Sports - injuries and post-event conditions
Vascular issues - spider veins and varicosities

"Stress is a part of life, and massage therapists are frequently called in as first line of defense against it. I have learned the difference between daily life stressors and chronic stress, what chronic stress does to our bodies and health, and ways to prevent and cope with it. I can help keep my clients' stress issues from infiltrating their own lives."
"Headaches are the number 1 reason for employee absence in the United States. I have learned why this is so and can discuss possible prevention and treatment options. Every type of headache is as unique as the symptoms that go with it; I will be able to identify the different types of headaches and their characteristics. There are strategies for prevention, as well as treatment options that can be applied to all of my clients!"
