Reflexology is a type of bodywork that focuses on applying pressure to the specific nerve zones in your feet. Unlike other foot massages that intend to mostly relieve tension in the feet themselves, reflexology is a far more in-depth science that aims to harmonize your entire body. According to reflexology, every part of the human body is mapped into your feet. Reflexology treatments have been found to be highly effective for conditions such as allergies, headaches, and depression.
I am in good standing with the American Massage Therapy Association since 2013. In 2014, I became the District Coordinator to elevate massage therapist in my area bringing them the Continuing Education needed to renew their license or to answer and question they may have about the AMTA. If you are a massage therapist who is interested in becoming a member, please contact me.
I am blessed to be apart of the learning process for future licensed Massage therapists. Ensuring the integrity of the profession stays elevated and intact. I hope to bring more Clinical Based Research to the program as well as my experience and knowledge. Working with students and being able to share my love and pride in this profession keeps me motivated!
Manual Lymphatic Drainage Therapy aims to gently and rhythmically move the lymph through the body, especially swollen areas of the body, relieving pressure and enhancing the functioning of the immune system by manually maneuvering the body to activate lymph and interstitial fluid circulation. This is achieved by mapping and draining body fluid stagnation. As both a preventative and remedial technique, MLD can be used for a wide range of purposes including faster recovery from injury, reduction of swelling and discomfort from pregnancy, and strengthened resistance to illness. Note: Recomended for clients seeking: *Detoxification of the body *Reduce swelling from various origins *Relief of chronic pain *Alleviation of adiposis (fat) & cellulite tissue *Regeneration of tissue (including wounds, wrinkles, & healed burn tissue) * Relief from chronic or acute inflammations *Deep relaxation to aid insomnia & stressed clients
MSM release the fascial restrictions on the muscles eliminating/reducing pain, increase range of motion, and rebalance the entire body. It does this by using massage techniques to stretch the fascia and release the bonds that exist between the fascia, muscles and bones thus improving flexibility, contractility, and elasticity. Fascia is the connective tissue that connects and covers all muscles, organs, and skeletal structures of the body. Direct myofascial release is sometimes known as deep tissue work. Indirect release applies light pressure and gently stretches the fascia; this allows for increased blood circulation and relief from pain. Note: MSM uses a highly interactive stretching & releasing technique that requires feedback from the client to determine the direction, force, and duration of the stretching of myofascial units to facilitate maximum relaxation of the tight or restricted tissue.
