Massage is an incredibly powerful treatment, preventative care, and overall health care modality. Massage uses different stokes to manipulate and treat muscles, tendons, ligaments, fascia, and other connective tissue. It also has beneficial effects on the nerves and neural pathways, lymphatic (or immune) system, cardiovascular system, nervous system (brain and spinal cord), and organs/glands. Massage has been proven to greatly reduce muscle tension, pain, and stress. It is a wonderful treatment for chronic issues in the musculoskeletal system. It is not just a “luxury” treatment, but truly a wonderful modality to be used as a general health care plan.
Although we do have a variety of specific treatments offered, Hannah uses her expertise to combine the techniques to create a treatment that suites your individual needs best. With her comprehensive background, she is able to look at each client with a very different approach than your average massage therapist. From a clinically based treatment approach to an energy-work approach, we can offer it all.
This is a gentle form of massage that uses long strokes, kneading, deep circular movements, vibration and tapping to help relax and energize you. It is incredibly relaxing and has a wonderful effect on overall health.
This massage technique uses slower, deeper strokes to target the deeper layers of muscle and connective tissue, commonly to help with muscle damage from injuries, tightness, or overuse. It is great for athletes, but really most populations, and can help to prevent or treat injuries.
This massage focuses on areas of tight muscle fibers that can form in your muscles after injuries or overuse. Overuse can include sitting at a desk for too long or repetitive movement in our daily life. Trigger points create referral pain patterns in the body, which often go undiagnosed.
Tender points in the body can occur, when we have strains in our muscles. These strains can happen via overuse, repetitive patterns, injury, and many other ways. These points can create dysfunction in the muscle or correlated joint. They can affect posture and overall well-being. This is a very gentle, simple technique that aids in regaining optimal musculoskeletal health.
This technique works on the nervous system of the body, by clearing the neural pathways from the spinal cord. The muscles are reminded of “where they should be” as well as their proper length, which have profound effects on how we feel. For someone who is stressed or “wound up”, this technique creates a deep relaxation. For someone who may need a “pick me up” or pep in their step, this technique can be adjusted to energize and stimulate a client.
This technique is wonderful for clients with Learning disabilities, Anxiety, Depression, Stress, Poor Posture, etc.
This treatment is great for clients with low immunity, edema, allergies, who are fighting a cold, etc. It boosts the immune system and improves lymphatic flow in the body, which aids in toxin removal.
This treatment improves the circulatory system. This is a great treatment for clients with Raynods, cold hands or feet, hormonal issues, anxiety, depression, learning disabilities, etc. This treatment has a wonderful visualization and breathing technique that amplifies the relaxation and effectiveness of the treatment.
*We also utilized Reflexology, hot stones, aromatherapy, and warm compressive packs.
