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

Toni Ann was absolutely wonderful. Great massage, she asked a lot of questions to make sure she worked on very specific areas. I cannot wait to go back!

Made me feel very relaxed. I was a bit nervous going in, but ended up wanting to go again. Very professional. I would highly recommend.

Because Toni-Ann is certified and skilled in several forms of massage therapy, she’s able to customize the right massage for any physical ailment you may have. My profession forces me to lug 20 pounds of equipment on my body every day so I usually spend a good hour and half with her in a session, every two weeks. If it wasn’t for our sessions I don’t know how I would be able to continue doing my job. Her attention and persistence to detail makes you feel as if you are her only client. For anyone that’s looking to get past those physical ailments that have hindered you for some time, I recommend seeing Toni ASAP.

Toni-Ann is fantastic. Not only do I feel relaxed after my massage, but she does an excellent job relieving pain in my problem areas, usually my neck and back. I never leave without booking my next appointment!
by Abbey on Dec 05
Toni-Ann consistently gives the most therapeutic and relaxing massages. She seems to innately know exactly what my body needs. She's a healer, a true professional, and I always leave understanding more about my body due to her communication and desire to share her anatomical knowledge. I can't recommend anyone more highly.
