I started my Massage Therapy career late in life. I was drawn to it when I volunteered at Hospice and various elder care facilities. I realized how valuable a simple touch can be to some people. After attending Southeastern Institute for Massage, I learned and experienced so much more about the benefits of  Massage Therapy.
Since practicing Massage Therapy, I have seen the benefits.  Many of my clients posture has improved, bursitis eased, range of motion increased, headaches stopped coming, better sleep and many more.  I specialize in an integrated massage. Some areas may need deeper pressure than others. I work slowly and thoroughly,  I am totally open and encourage comments or suggestions. If you like or don't like anything about your massage, feel free to tell me. 
I thoroughly enjoy what I do and would love to help you relax and rejuvenate and feel better!

Deep Tissue

A deep tissue session is especially helpful for chronically tense and contracted areas such as stiff necks, low back tightness, and sore shoulders. Deep tissue massage may take time to loosen up those muscles that are severely tight. You should feel some relief after the first session, but for us to get deeper and alleviate the problem, it is best to come often, before the muscles tense up again. In my regular clients, I have seen increased mobility, improvement of posture, decreased pain of osteoarthritis and fibromyalgia. Recovery from injuries (e.g. whiplash, falls, sports injury) Repetitive strain injury, such as carpal tunnel syndrome Postural problems Ostearthritis pain Fibromyalgia Muscle tension or spasm

Hot Stone Massage

As well as my education I received in Hot Stone Massage at Southeastern Institute; I also am certified through Hand and Stone Massage & Facial Spa. I work with hot stones on a regular basis. They are extremely helpful in aiding in the softening of the tissue, so that the therapist is able to access deeper muscles. Hot Stones are made of basalt, which is lava rock, they hold the heat well and the minerals in the stone may have some pain relieving properties. Hot Stone Massage is also recommended for those with arthritis or other chronic pain. As one client said, " the stones warm you down to the bone."

Swedish

Swedish massage is one of the gentlest forms or massage. I would recommend and have treated with this massage for many different clients, including, those that are elderly or frail; teens or children; first time massage clients and really anyone who just likes a gentle touch that may be relaxing for them. I always customize my techniques to fit the client's need.A deep tissue session is especially helpful for chronically tense and contracted areas such as stiff necks, low back tightness, and sore shoulders.

Myofascial Release

There are many conditions and symptoms that myofascial release (MFR) therapy addresses. Many clients seek myofascial treatment after losing flexibility or function following an injury or if experiencing ongoing back, shoulder, hip, or pain in any area containing soft tissue. Symptoms usually include: tightness of the tissues that restricts motion or pulls the body out of alignment, causing them to favor and overuse one hip or shoulder, for example, a sense of excessive pressure on muscles or joints that produces pain. Some Myofascial Release therapy is incorporated in many of my massages, especially those who work hard and don't receive regular massages. Muscles tighten and the fascia tighten too, feeling like a tight wrapping around your muscles. . Pain in any part or parts of the body, including headache or back pain. Myofascial release (MFR) therapy focuses on releasing muscular shortness and tightness. Other conditions treated by myofascial release therapy include Temporo-Mandibular Joint (TMJ) disorder, carpal tunnel syndrome, or possibly fibromyalgia or migraine headaches.

Chair Massage

Chair massage is useful for much more than tight shoulders. We help with your back and hips, work on hands and arms, relieving tight wrists and fingers. We can employ some stretches, especially helpful around shoulders. Chair massage is also useful for those who cannot lie down.

If you want a great massage at a very reasonable rate then think of Michelle Fus in Irmo she gives one of the best massages I have ever had. I have been to her several times and will continue to get my massages from her.
