About
Massage Modalities  

I have been an LMBT since 2015 , and have found a love for Thai Yoga Massage because I enjoy learning about a medicine that is specific to a place and a people.


Traditionally clients are treated on a mat on the floor.  I work in a gentle rhythmic flowing pace to soothe the nervous system, and often apply deep pressure with a foot or knee.

 

I focus on acupressure points to address energetically the compromised muscle tissue, and accompany that with stretching when needed.

 

I use tools such as silicone cups, hot stones, Tok sen, and Gua sha.

 

Thai massage is really a beautiful modality because it simultaneously is working energetically and structurally at the same time . There is also an element of yoga and guided breathing to assist in deeper stretches. It’s slow and introspective, yet expansive and effective  It’s the balanced yin/ yang of treatments. After my first Thai massage, I was totally in awe and in love with Thai massage.

I am also working toward a Healing Touch Program energy work credential to become a HTP- Practitioner.

My favorite session is a 2 hour Thai Mat Massage.

Cupping

Cupping is a tool that originated from Chinese Medicine in which suction is applied to the skin. Cupping is very effective in breaking structural restrictions, such as adhesions in the fascia.
