Relax-Restore-Repeat!

I've been a therapist for 7 years now and am certified in various areas. I want to continue to add on to my techniques, modalities, and knowledge of how to heal the body naturally. Over the years I've learned a lot and one thing is for sure, hardly anything works the same for everyone. I plan to get to know you and your body type/reactions to massage and any topical treatment  I may use is up to your discretion. If a technique or pressure I use doesn't work for you, please feel free to let me...

Bodywork

Deep Tissue

Deep Tissue Massage is a form of bodywork that aims to relieve tension in the deeper layers of tissue in the body. Deep Tissue Massage is a highly effective method for releasing chronic stress areas due to misalignment, repetitive motions, and past lingering injuries. Due to the nature of the deep tissue work, open communication during the session is crucial to make sure you don't get too uncomfortable. Keep in mind that soreness is pretty common after the treatment, and that plenty of water should be ingested to aid with the flushing and removal of toxins that will have been released from the deep tissue during the session.

Sports Massage

Sports massage is a form of bodywork geared toward participants in athletics. It is used to help prevent injuries, to prepare the body for athletic activity and maintain it in optimal condition, and to help athletes recover from workouts and injuries.

Trigger Point Therapy

Trigger Point Therapy is a style of bodywork that focuses on stimulating and releasing "trigger points" in your body. Trigger points are tender areas of tension similar to acupressure points, except they occur in the belly of the muscle rather than along the energy pathways of the body. These "knots" are built up throughout a person's life due to physical, mental, and/or emotional stress. During a session, focused pressure is applied through a variety of techniques order to release your trigger points. This process can be quite painful at times, yet the effects are lasting and profoundly transformative.

Pregnancy

Pregnancy Massage is a style of bodywork designed specifically for pregnant women. Pregnancy is a time when a woman's body endures tremendous stress due to dramatic physical and emotional changes. Using various techniques specially developed for the expecting mother, Pregnancy Massage helps release the pain and discomfort experienced throughout pregnancy. The benefits are profound, including emotional support, the relief of joint pain due to extra weight and postural imbalance, and improved breathing and relaxation.

Medical

Medical massage is outcome-based massage, primarily the application of a specific treatment targeted to the specific problems the patient presents with a diagnosis and are administered after a thorough evaluation by the medical massage therapist with specific outcomes being the basis for treatment.

Swedish

Swedish Massage is a very relaxing and therapeutic style of bodywork. It combines oils or lotion with an array of strokes such as rolling, kneading, and percussion to help the body improve its circulation. The benefits of this type of bodywork are wide-ranging and include relief from aches and pains, decreased stress levels in the body, enhanced mental clarity, improved appearance, and greater flexibility.

Oncology

Oncology Massage is a special type of massage developed specifically for cancer patients. Cancer patients have unique needs which must be addressed to make sure that a massage is beneficial to their health. I focus my attention on creating a gentle, nurturing environment for you to relax into.

I had a very positive experience here with AJ! She is an outstanding massage therapist with extensive skills and techniques that soothed all of my sore muscles. The atmosphere was also very calming with nature sounds and aromatherapy. AJ is absolutely the best, highly recommended!

She is extremely polite and calming to her clients

I appreciated her working on the knots in my back. My back felt much better.
by Justin on Jan 12
She really helped identify the knots and helped rubbed them out. She helped me realize other areas in my body that I was tight. It helped a lot with my awareness and areas I need to work on.

My neck and spine were my trouble spots and she did a great job!

AJ is so talented. Every time I go, I am in bliss. I always wonder why I don’t go more often. What she does to my feet is my favorite. Also, long strokes in opposite directions stretching out my back and legs. What I love is that she doesn’t leave any muscle group untouched from the palms of my hands to the muscles under my collar bone or in my neck.
