“Tension is who you think you should be. Relaxation is who you are” ~ Chinese proverb





I always make sure my clients know that this is their time. It's a judge free zone! I strive to make my space warm, comfortable, friendly and respectful. A place where they can be themselves and let go of their troubles.

Before coming back to the city, I spent my time working at a chiropractic office. My specialty is getting out my client's kinks in their neck, back, shoulders and hips. I care though about whats going on 360 so if all they need a nice light relaxing stress relieving massage, I can do that too.

My clients can expect variations to their sessions based on their needs. I integrate some or all of my Swedish, Myofascial, Deep Tissue, and Stretching. I provide a soft neck pillow for those that need a little more cervical TLC, and a nice heated pillow for my clients feet during the cold months.

If stretching is your thing, I offer a modality called Active Isolated Stretching. See link below to learn more. http://healthyliving.azcentral.com/active-isolated-stretching-exercises-11902.html

I'll end with this inspirational quote.

Deep Tissue

Deep Tissue Massage is a form of bodywork that aims to relieve tension in the deeper layers of tissue in the body. Deep Tissue Massage is a highly effective method for releasing chronic stress areas due to misalignment, repetitive motions, and past lingering injuries. Due to the nature of the deep tissue work, open communication during the session is crucial to make sure you don't get too uncomfortable. Keep in mind that soreness is pretty common after the treatment, and that plenty of water should be

Myofascial Release

Myofascial release is a form of soft tissue therapy intended to eliminate 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. 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 stretche

Shiatsu

Shiatsu is a Japanese form of massage therapy. The word Shiatsu comes from two Japanese words - "shi" (finger) and "atsu" (pressure). In addition to the direct stimulation of pressure points along the energy pathways of your body, gentle stretching techniques are applied over a wider area of the body to integrate the point work and encourage the flow of Chi (energy) throughout the body. Shiatsu is a meditative healing art that honors the body, mind and spirit.

Swedish

Swedish Massage is a very relaxing and therapeutic style of bodywork. It combines oils or lotion with an array of strokes such as rolling, kneading, and percussion to help the body improve its circulation. The benefits of this type of bodywork are wide-ranging and include relief from aches and pains, decreased stress levels in the body, enhanced mental clarity, improved appearance, and greater flexibility.

Active Isolated Stretching

Developed by Aaron Mattes, Active Isolated Stretching (AIS) is a dynamic system for improving your flexibility and overall well-being. As you probably already know, stretching your muscles not only reduces your chance of injury, but also strengthens your tendons and improves your circulation.

REVIEWS for my Bodywork services

really great massage, focused on areas that i thought needed it and even gave me some stretches to do to assist with continued healing and flexibility.

Amazing techniques...and she's just such a good person. I would recommend her to anyone. My only problem is I like her so much that sometimes I talk too much instead of just relaxing:) Liz is the best massage therapist I've found and I'm officially spoiled by her excellence.

Liz is the best!! She makes clients feel at ease, she knows all kinds of tricks to relieve problem areas, and she remembers previous conversations, so she's really listening, too. Plus, she gives students a discount, which makes it possible for me to get an occasional massage (something I otherwise wouldn't be able to justify in my budget)!
