Therapeutic Signature Massage
This signature massage combines a variety of modalities and levels of pressure to assist you in healing and relaxation.
A favorite with clients!
Many modalities are blended to create the perfect session customized just for you. We will work together before (and during, if necessary) the session to figure out what will support your needs best. We can concentrate on just one area or the entire body! This massage is grounding and nourishing.
Craniosacral therapy is a gentle, non-invasive hands-on method of working with the deepest rhythms of the body to help ease restrictions and restore vitality and well-being. The treatment incorporates light touch to address specific strain patterns, injuries, and trauma for enhanced well-being.
By complementing the body’s natural healing processes, Craniosacral Therapy is increasingly used as a preventive health measure for its ability to bolster resistance to disease, and is effective for a wide range of medical problems associated with pain and dysfunction, including:
Alzheimer’s Disease and Dementia
Central Nervous System Disorders
Chronic Neck and Back Pain
Concussions and Traumatic Brain Injuries
Fibromyalgia and other Connective-Tissue Disorders
Neurovascular or Immune Disorders
Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder
Spinal Cord Injuries
Stress and Tension-Related Problems
Temporomandibular Joint Syndrome (TMJ)
In Āyurveda, health is not just the absence of disease but a state where the body is functioning optimally and the mind is serene. In a balanced state an individual can experience more vitality, happiness and well-being in every day life.
Abhyanga massage lubricates the joints, helps circulation, assists in detoxification, calms the nerves, increases stamina, improves sleep, nourishes the skin and the entire body using long and continuous strokes towards the feet. This leads to improved well-being and longevity. Deeply grounding and relaxing.
This modality penetrates deep within the muscles to relieve tension and loosen fascial holding and will assist in changing any chronic holding patterns or old injuries that inhibit movement.
The practitioner may use knuckles, elbows, or other tools to slowly stretch the restricted tissue. This is a very slow and direct modality working through the layers of the fascia until the deep tissues are reached.
Sarga Barefoot Bodywork
Sarga Bodywork is a barefoot massage method that employs the use of a fabric strap fastened to a massage table to deliver therapeutic myofascial and deep tissue techniques.
This fabric strap is used by practitioners for stability and to add tensional and gravitational force to specific manual therapy methods. These methods, combined with the broad contact surface of the foot facilitate less restriction and more ease and relaxation in recipients’ bodies.
SARGA BODYWORK is defined as a myofascial technique as manual therapy characterized by sustained, oblique, and high-tack contact with the aim of stimulating a stretch response in the fascia associated with muscle (myo) tissue (see shear-force). This technique helps to facilitate length, hydration, and mobility in recipient’s connective tissue. We celebrate the broad, densely innervated surfaces of our feet as perhaps the most effective and intelligent tools for this purpose!
Pregnancy massage focuses on addressing the special needs of expecting mammas. Special cushions, strokes, and side-lying postures are used to prevent putting pressure on the abdomen.
There will be NO essential oils used during this massage.
Guided Yoga Nidra
Yoga Nidra (also known as Yogic Sleep or Deep Relaxation) is calming, grounding, and relaxing for more than just the body. This practice takes you on a journey through full relaxation of the body, mind, and soul.
The session will be guided with many opportunities to go deep within in silence. Please wear comfortable clothing.
