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.

Toni is extremely skilled at what she does. She has a passion for bodywork and is constantly learning and educating herself. If everyone could go about their jobs the way Toni goes about hers, the world would be a better place.

Toni-Ann is amazing. She helped me with my recurring headaches due to a stiffness in my neck. After my visit with her, it quickly went away.

Overall, I highly recommend Toni, to anyone. She is highly skilled. I remember the first few times I went to her she first asked me a bunch of questions about my lifestyle and listened. Now, I only let Toni massage me because she knows what she’s doing.
