Change comes when the fear of things staying the same becomes greater than the fear of change.

Prior to becoming a licensed massage therapist, I spent many years working in corporate America.  I struggled to deal with the emotional stress of corporate politics, the physical stress of never-ending deadlines and the guilt of juggling personal and professional priorities.  Because of this experience, it became vitally important to me find balance. 

 

Now, as a massage therapist, I am compelled to do what I can to assist working professionals in finding balance.

Deep Tissue

Deep connective tissue massage is a form of intense massage that aims to release myofascial (connective tissue) restrictions in the body, and to break up any restrictive scar tissue. It has also been known to help relieve chronic tension, to increase the body's range of motion, to improve posture and to enhance the natural harmony of the entire body and mind. Deep connective tissue massage is also said to restore the length and flexibility to the fascia (the fiberous tissue that surrounds the muscles and organs), by normalizing the tissue and by improving the strength and overall health of the entire fascial system connective tissues throughout the entire body. Deep connective tissue massage borrows many of its techniques from traditional Swedish massage. However the pressure that a massage therapist applies during a deep connective tissue massage is more intense, and massage oil or lotion isn't typically used. The strokes of this type of massage are slower and more pressure is applied in order warm the muscle tissue and reach the deeper layers of muscle. Although having a deep connective tissue massage shouldn't cause you any pain, its often less relaxing and less comfortable then a traditional Swedish massage. Most practitioners ask that their clients tell them immediately if the stroke pressure is too intense.

Thai Massage

Traditional Thai massage uses no oils or lotions. The recipient remains clothed during a treatment. There is constant body contact between the giver and receiver, but rather than rubbing on muscles, the body is compressed, pulled, stretched and rocked.[3] The recipient wears loose, comfortable clothing and lies on a mat or firm mattress on the floor. In Thailand, a dozen or so subjects may be receiving massage simultaneously in one large room. The true ancient style of the massage requires that the massage be performed solo with just the giver and receiver. The receiver will be positioned in a variety of yoga-like positions during the course of the massage, that is also combined with deep static and rhythmic pressures.

Intra-Oral Massage

Intra-Oral massage is a safe and effective manual technique that works on muscles both inside and outside the mouth, neck and throat. Although this technique can be quite intense, it is not necessarily painful. Since it deals with muscles that are rarely touched, they respond to less pressure. It is extremely beneficial and even helps balance the upper body. Gloves are worn while working inside the mouth to release the muscles and fascia involved with chewing and jaw clenching.
