Soothe-Me Relaxation Massage
Exclusively for women. My rhythmic Soothe-Me massage effectively calms your body's fight/flight response to stress using techniques to reduce pain perception, decrease stress hormone levels, enhance mental clarity, and elevate mood. Either hypo-allergenic lotion or organic coconut oil will be soothingly massaged into your skin, with the optional addition of essential oils (at no additional charge).
Move-Free Orthopedic Bodywork
For women. My Move-Free orthopedic bodywork targets layers of bodily tissue through movement, specific stretching and focused massage to help relieve chronic stress due to misalignment, repetitive motion and lingering old injuries. A range of medium to firm touch may be used, as needed, within your tolerance. This treatment requires that lights be on and the body be visible and mobile. Accordingly, please plan to wear a secure bra and stretchy shorts or modest underware. Open communication during the session is crucial. Please be advised that mild soreness/bruising could result from this treatment.
Body-Dynamic Therapeutic Massage
Just for women. My signature Body-Dynamic therapeutic massage combines relaxation with orthopedic techniques to gently target tension and mobility issues. This blend of soothing and therapeutic styles promotes recuperation from chronic tension, while facilitating movement and pain relief. With your consent, I may position you on your side while being supported by soft pillows, which is especially effective for deep treatment of the shoulders and hips. Either hypo-allergenic lotion or organic coconut oil will be soothingly massaged into your skin, with the optional addition of essential oils (at no additional charge).
Game-On pre-event sports massage
A short invigorating massage on a heated table designed to settle the mind and reconnect with the body, 3-24 hours prior to your race or event - whether swimming, running, cycling, or other! I utilize a variety of strokes, ROM movement, and deep breathing to calm the mind, facilitate circulation, and help prepare muscles for exertion. If you are from out of town, please text me at (540) 384-1820 to book your appointment, as I may be able to accommodate short notice. Located less than 1 mile from the Christiansburg Aquatic Center.
