A customized treatment that incorporates techniques of Swedish, deep tissue and sports massage as well as more specialized modalities based on your needs.
Body work that uses the application of force to reset the muscle memory and establish new, healthier patterns of movement. I assist clients in actively engaging individual muscles to the point of fatigue so that functional movement is reorganized and muscles return to their original, natural state rather than holding chronic tension. With the active participation of the client, a sense of personal empowerment is achieved as you learn how to transform discomfort and restricted movements.
Designed for mountain and road bikers, runners, climbers, skiers, rafters, hikers, yogis, kayakers and anyone in a physical profession looking for help with training, performance or recovery. This specific work involves deep pressure combined with extension and contraction of the muscle, active and passive stretching and myofascial release.
Cupping is a technique that uses glass or silicone cups to suction and pull skin, muscles, and tissue up. The suction is so strong it pulls deoxygenated blood to the surface, encouraging blood flow and allowing oxygenated blood to bring nutrients to your muscles.
When you become stressed, the connective tissue surrounding your muscles becomes tight. The maneuverability of silicone cups allows the muscles to be released of tension from origin to insertion by reversing the effects of gravity.
Hot stones are incorporated into the massage to help the muscles warm up, and therefor loosen up, which allows me to work deeper with less discomfort for you.
I travel with my portable table and various supplies to your home, vacation rental, bed & breakfast or retreat center. Prices vary on season and location.
Between the end of December through mid March, you can find me back country touring through the Dolly Sods and Canaan National Wildlife Refuge on Telemark Skis. Whether you live in the area, or are just enjoying it for the weekend, I am available to travel to your home with my portable table. My hours and availability depend on the conditions (no clients on pow days!).
