A Happy and Relaxed Body/Mind is Better Able to Rejuvenate Itself to Health

My intuitive approach incorporates Deep Tissue Ashiatsu, Thai Massage, Swedish, Myofascial Techniques, Medical, Prenatal, Ortho & Sports Massage. 

I help relax tired, overstressed muscles that are pulling bones out of alignment and bring them back to a more natural, healthy and flexible state. I know how to remove layers of tension and stress, how to take you from tight to "alright!", how to get you breathing deeply and openly again.

You'll find me to be friendly, respectful and professional.

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 ingested to aid with the flushing and removal of toxins that will have been released from the deep tissue during the session.

Myofascial Release

Myofascial massage is a technique used to treat injuries and discomfort, reducing pain and increasing range of motion. Myofascial massage differs from other types of massage in that it targets the fascia - the membrane surrounding muscles - rather than the muscle itself. Since fascia completely encases every muscle in the body, imbalances in the fascia can have serious effects on your range of motion and comfort level. While other forms of massage can overlook the fascia, myofascial massage focuses specifically on releasing tension in this important membrane.

Reflexology

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.

Hot Stone Massage

Hot Stone Therapy is a style of massage where heated stones are placed at specific sites on your body to deepen relaxation and promote circulation in your muscles. Muscles that are heated with these stones release tension and stress much more deeply and quickly than with a traditional massage. The overall experience is very relaxing, nurturing, and rejuvenating.

Sports Massage

Sports Massage is a type of massage designed for highly active people who engage in athletics. Engaging in sports is harsh on the body and can often lead to injuries in both the short and long term. Sports Massage enhances performance and prolongs a sports career by helping to prevent injury, reduce pains and swelling in the body, relax the mind, increase flexibility, and dramatically improve recovery rates. Sports Massage is also highly effective in aiding the rapid recovery of an athlete from an injury by encouraging greater kinesthetic awareness and in turn promoting the body's natural immune function.

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.

Pregnancy

Pregnancy is a time when a woman's body endures tremendous stress due to dramatic physical and emotional changes. Using various techniques specially developed for the expecting mother, Pregnancy Massage helps release the pain and discomfort experienced throughout pregnancy. The benefits are profound, including emotional support, the relief of joint pain due to extra weight and postural imbalance, and improved breathing and relaxation.

Great stress reducer and very professional. Thank you
by Swede on Nov 26
This was my first professional massage and was a little nervous. Katy was kind, patient, and professional and made me feel relaxed. The ashiatsu massage was amazing and my back hasn't felt this good in years. Great experience that I will be repeating asap.

Bottom line is she knew what she was doing! Seemed to know all the spots that were sore. My neck had better range of motion after. Will need more treatment and I feel I am in good hands.

Fantastic massage. Need a bigger face pillow hole with stiffer frame support.

I've had many massages over the years and Katy's was the best I've ever experienced, and I've had some wonderfully beneficial massages. I made a point of telling her, as I left, how "amazing" I felt.

Katy is a very talented masseuse that did a phenomenal job. She was also able to fit me in her schedule at the last minute.

Fantastic and plan to return for more.

Katy was very professional, she listened to my concerns/needs and focussed her attention on those areas. I was comfortable and relaxed the whole time, I intend to go back to continue to help with my tension.
