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.

REVIEWS for my Bodywork services

Great atmosphere, massage was excellent!
by Debbie on Oct 01
A massage by Anita is absolutely AMAZING! She is the best massage therapist I've ever experienced. With her excellent knowledge of the human body she pinpoints exactly where to focus on. Her combination of massage techniques that include cupping, warmth of the soft heated bags and range of pressure from Swedish to Deep tissue offer incredible therapeutic relief. I was so relaxed after yesterday's appointment- I had the best nights sleep I've had in months. Highly recommend Anita McClellan at Tree of Life Massage and Wellness. Her expanded new location is a very peaceful and private space to experience the best massage you'll ever have!

Wonderful ambiance and Anita has such excellence skills. She can find the sore spots and work them out without "hurting" me! If you have special needs, she is teh one to go to! Love her new place!

Anita really takes time to find out about my specific needs and besides giving and excellent, focused massage, gives me good stretches or exercises for homework.

Thank you!

I really LOVE your new location. It provides an inviting calm and comfortable relaxing environment. As always, you have amazing hands. Your execution and technique are reflected in your mastery as a therapist. You are always in tune with where I need the most work and put my comfort and care at the forefront! Thank you for teaching me how to better care for my injuries, and my health! Thank you for trying new modalities on me! I love trying new things. It is an honor to call you my friend. I wish I could somehow repay you for all the "pain relief" you bring to me!

Awesome
by Collette on Aug 03
I really like Anita's style of massage. The adding gentle cupping used for striping the muscle more than suction really helped relieve tension. Convenient, quiet space. Only complaint is I didn't like the (computer) monitor in the same room
