Kinesiology Taping

Toni-Ann is a Certified Kinesiology Taping 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-Ann was phenomenal! I was visiting NJ for a month from Chicago and I got a really stiff neck and back because of the change in my sleep environment and as well as from my workouts. I am very picky when it comes to massage therapist as I workout everyday, and a good massage allows me to go injury free at the gym. After reading good reviews, I went to Toni-Ann and it was well worth the experience. She was very energetic, skillful and her massage style was different from my usual therapists in Chicago. During a session, I prefer constant feedback on which parts of my body are stiffer, so that I could use those to fix my workouts. She did an amazing job in that and on top of that she even taught me some stretches to try to fix my issues. Overall, it was a wonderful experience and I wish she was in Chicago !
