My massage clients come see me for a variety of reasons. Some of my clients seek massage therapy to resolve recurrent discomfort caused by injuries, postural issues, repetitive work or stress. Some of my clients are endurance athletes who regularly push their bodies to the limit and use deep tissue and trigger point therapy to aid in their recovery process. Some of my clients seek swedish massage and craniosacral release for relaxation, using our time together to remove themselves from the breakneck speed of every day life. No matter why you are here, I am committed to delivering a fantastic massage, tailored to your needs.
What types of massage therapy do I offer?
Many of my clients ask about my massage therapy modalities...the types of massage I give. I am trained in swedish, sports and deep tissue massage, craniosacral, myotherapy and reflexology. What I find, though, is that most clients are best served by a massage that blends these methods. I apply different massage modalities at different times and to different parts of your body, depending on how you feel when you arrive for your appointment. I will tailor your massage to your preference; I will also adjust your massage therapy based on my assessment of your physical needs.
Why get massage therapy?
My core practice is built around the needs of competitive endurance athletes, including triathletes, marathoners and cyclists. As an avid hiker and former recreational body builder, I understand the complex muscular and connective tissue issues that arise from heavy activity...and the related injuries. I am also focused on discomfort that arises from repetitive use. Most of us do not think about what happens to our bodies when we hold the same position or repeat the same action over prolonged periods. Massage therapy can provide tremendous benefits in both of these scenarios. Our bodies (and muscles) form habits, and overused muscles can tighten, pulling other body parts out of alignment and forcing us to repeat the same destructive behavior. Through relaxing overused and stressed muscles and releasing restricted and adhered tissue, massage therapy creates an opportunity to change these postural habits.
Nurturing touch and relaxation are other vital components of massage therapy. In the modern world we are constantly bombarded by stressors...there are a million emails, tasks, errands, people who need us and insufficient time to do all of the things we think we should accomplish. Receiving massage allows us to take a quiet break and focus on the subtleties of our bodies. Give yourself permission to spend some time on my massage table and focus on your breathing and unwinding your body. Deep relaxation provides countless benefits.
I offer massage therapy from my private, comfortable studio, which is located in Central Phoenix. I use natural, hypoallergenic lotions and oils, with aromatherapy available upon request. I can also perform therapeutic massage at other locations on a case-by-case basis.
I am originally from Michigan and have lived in Arizona for five years. I live an active lifestyle and love hiking and the outdoors. I love being a massage therapist and am grateful every day that I have found a profession where I can help others lead happier, healthier lives.
I look forward to meeting you.
