Kinesiology Taping

Toni-Ann is a Certified Kinesiology Practitioner, combining taping and movement to improve pain, posture, edema, scars, and neurological symptoms. Kinesiology Tape microscopically lifts skin, using decompression to soothe pain, reduce swelling, and relieve bruising. Kinesiology tape increases the awareness of body position to improve and maintain posture, stability, function, and performance. Kinesiology Tape delays muscle fatigue, enhances rehabilitation, and speeds recovery of many common conditions. Specific application protocols support prenatal clients with swelling, carpal tunnel, back/hip pain, and may even be applied to the belly to act as a sling/baby belt.

Cupping Therapy

Toni-Ann is a Certified Cupping practitioner, utilizing reverse pressure to enhance the benefits of massage and bodywork. Combined with Deep Tissue massage, Cupping Massage gently lifts the skin, superficial layers of muscle, and connective tissue upward and creates a “reverse massage” using gliding to loosen muscles and fascia, encourage circulation, reduce inflammation, relieve pain, sedate nervous system, and promote relaxation. Cupping therapy firmly lifts deeper layers upward over areas of chronic tightness, adhesions, and limited mobility encouraging the release and clearing of lymph, cellular debris, and stagnation. Marks ranging from light pink to deep purple may be left on the skin and directly indicate the amount of dysfunction in that area. The marks should dissipate in up to 2 weeks as they are processed by the lymphatic and circulatory systems.

Prenatal & Postnatal Massage

Toni-Ann has extensive training in prenatal and postnatal massage, assisting women with the transitions their bodies undergo during and after pregnancy. Prenatal massage helps to decrease pregnancy discomforts and enhance the physiological and emotional well-being of mother and baby. Side lying positioning with supportive, soft cushions is used to alleviate extra strain on the low back and pelvic areas when the pressure of massage techniques are applied. In the postnatal period, massage helps to rebalance structure, physiology, and emotions of the new mother. The postnatal period begins immediately after the birth of a child and extends for about six weeks.

REVIEWS for my Bodywork services

by Chrissy on Nov 09
As always, my session as incredibly beneficial. I felt better as soon as we finished. Already looking forward to my next one!
by Colleen on Nov 02
Toni-Ann is very knowledgeable and has a vested interest in your health and well being. She took her time and asked me a lot of questions to gain a solid understanding of why I was there and what I was hoping to get out of the massage. I went to her feeling a lot of stiffness and discomfort. Afterwards, I felt 1000 times better and look forward to my next massage!

Toni-Ann was wonderful. Some highlights were - her knowledge and willingness to share. Pressure was perfect. Her explanation after the massage about what she found.

Toni-Ann was phenomenal! Absolutely attentive to details, checked in on me through out the session to make sure I was comfortable, varied her pressure when she hit areas that I couldn't take too much. My experience with Toni-Ann was fantastic. I loved her!

This was my first trip to Therapeutic Touch Massage & Bodywork, for a 90-minute session. I have neck and back issues/pain as well as a frozen left shoulder, and Toni-Ann was able to address them all. First we discussed my condition and I showed her my recent MRI results. During and after my treatment she explained the techniques used and the reasons for using them. Those 90 minutes felt very good even though I was not there to be relaxed but to be treated. That was yesterday and today I still feel pretty good; I'm going back for another 90-minute session in a week. Toni-Ann is very knowledgeable in her craft and it clearly shows. By the way, she is licensed in both NJ and NY. Great credentials. The place is nice and they have ample free parking. The waiting area is comfortable and the massage room is relaxing with soothing ambient music and great climate control. No complaints, just praise. Bill S. from Clifton

I have been going to Toni-Ann for almost a year now, and I can honestly say that she is the only person who has been able to alleviate my pain, AND prevent pain from coming back! Toni-Ann listens to your concerns and not only addresses the issues during your immediate session, but will research and further expand her understanding of how she can better her future sessions with you. She meticulously logs your sessions and keeps notes how areas of your body are progressing from the treatment. She has a beautiful spirit and bedside manner and is completely professional. Highly recommend her to any athlete or bodybuilder looking for top-quality bodywork & massage therapy.
