Notable Experiences

Bodywork
Lomi Lomi
Continuing Education 2010 / 2011 Lomi Lomi is bodywork that is ancient and beautiful. Like a dance it is gentle yet strong, flowing with gracefulness and spirit all within the rhythmic flow of a healing massage.
Myofascial Release
Continuing Education 2012 Myofascial release is a massage technique used to help release tension in the muscles, alleviate pain, release toxins from the body and increase range of motion
Reflexology
Continuing Education 2010 / 2011 The underlying theory behind reflexology is that there are "reflex" areas on the feet and hands that correspond to specific organs, glands, and other parts of the body. Practitioners believe that applying pressure to these reflex areas can promote health in the corresponding organs through energetic pathways.
Therapeutic Cupping
Continuing Education 2012 Massage Cupping is the combination of massage movements and negative pressure with the use of a suction device on the skin. A cup is positioned at the area to be treated and, depending on the type of cups being used; a vacuum is created within the cup to draw the skin and underlying tissue into the cup. The produced vacuum creates a suction effect that increases blood and lymphatic circulation systemically and to the local area, relaxes muscle tissue and support, draws stagnation, pathogenic factors and toxins out of the body and releases a myriad of pain causing factors. The intended suction can range from light to heavy. This, along with the movements performed and areas treated by the therapist will produce stimulating (toning) or sedating (draining) effects. It is very important that therapists be able to effectively assess the condition (physical, mental and emotional) of their clients, before the procedure, so they employ the proper application of the cups to produce the desired outcome.
Microcurrent
Continuing Education 2011 Low level microcurrent applied to the skin to boost circulation, stimulate cell rejuvenation.

I like that told me about getting that back foam thing five below zero and I enjoyed visiting with you.

There wasn't really anything that I disliked -- I used my gift certificate from Inspire Wellness Center, so the location was convenient, since it's in the same office. After I filled out the in-take form, it helped Anita to customize my treatment. I would recommend 'A Kneaded Relief Massage Therapy' to any of my friends,etc. (family lives out-of-state). Also, I appreciated that I didn't have to take any vacation time off work, since my appt. was on the MLK holiday-- THX!!

Anita is one of the most professional therapists I've ever met. Ask her for a hot palm massage, holy cow! She's always giving me techniques to help improve mobility. She is extreamly knowledgable in anatomy and is very passionate about her clients overall health and well being. She is respectful of each clients experience in the enviroment. Me, my husband, and both kids see her as often as we can afford. Wishing it was multipul times a month. She's the best in town and offers "A needed relief!"

I can't say enough about Anita. I am a bicyclist and I ride a lot. At my age my body speaks to me each time I do something physical. Anita helps me recover so I can keep up with my passion. She is very professional and is a wealth of knowledge of health. I also work in a position I am responsible for high end accounts. Massage is place to relieve work stress so I can relax. Thanks Anita for my healing.

So glad I found Anita!! She is wonderful! I have had a chronic shoulder/neck issue that did not improve despite multiple visits with other massage therapists and chiropractors. On my first visit with Anita, she identified the cause and gave me home exercises to do. Within three days, my shoulder and neck felt better and my range of motion during exercise has improved significantly!! Only wish I found her sooner!!

It was my first massage ever and I was nervous with high hopes that I would get some relief after hurting my neck this past week. Anita was very easy to talk to, explained everything very clearly and went above and beyond my expectations in her talent as a masseuse. I got a little emotional afterwards because it was so nice to have some relief after all the pain I had been experiencing. She is also very knowledgable about the body general and you can tell she knows exactly what she is doing. I will be recommending her to all my family and friends, and will be back to visit her again for sure. Thank you Anita!
