I have been a licensed massage therapist, Holistic Health Practitioner and a Reiki Practitioner since 2011. Graduated from Mueller College and have since accumulated over 4000 hours of massage practice working with chiropractic clients, professional athletes and with acute injuries. After evaluating each client’s individual structure, I create a structured protocol to address muscular and fascia impingement in order to create space within the body to help release acute and chronic pain. A typical therapeutic session with me will include a structural analysis, myofascial-release and a site-specific treatment.

Deep Tissue

Deep tissue massage is designed to relieve pain and muscle tension throughout the body. This type of massage is extremely beneficial because it reaches the deepest layer of muscles, fascia (connective tissue surrounding the joints) and tendons. The goal in deep tissue massage is to breakdown adhesions (tense areas within the muscle). Adhesions in the muscle are very important to address because they cause pain, inflammation and limit motion of the muscles and joints. Benefits: Alleviate pain Recover from injuries (sports, traumatic, whiplash, falls, etc.) Increase mobility Decrease muscle tension Recover from repetitive stresses (sports, computer use, lifting, etc.) Improve Posture Relief from Osteoarthritis Relief from Fibromyalgia

Sports Massage

Sports massage therapy is geared toward athletes of every kind, from world-class professionals to weekend joggers. The particulars of the sports massage technique are specific to the athlete's sport of choice. Focusing on areas of the body that are overused and stressed from repetitive and often aggressive movements.

Swedish

Swedish massage therapy is the modality that comes to mind when most people think about massage. As the best-known type of bodywork performed today, one of the primary goals of the Swedish massage technique is to relax the entire body. This is accomplished by rubbing the muscles with long gliding strokes in the direction of blood returning to the heart. But Swedish massage therapy goes beyond relaxation. Swedish massage is exceptionally beneficial for increasing the level of oxygen in the blood, decreasing muscle toxins, improving circulation and flexibility while easing tension.

Myofascial Release

Myofascial Release is a safe and very effective hands-on technique that involves applying gentle sustained pressure into the Myofascial connective tissue restrictions to eliminate pain and restore motion. This essential “time element” has to do with the viscous flow and the piezoelectric phenomenon: a low load (gentle pressure) applied slowly will allow a viscoelastic medium (fascia) to elongate. Trauma, inflammatory responses, and/or surgical procedures create Myofascial restrictions that can produce tensile pressures of approximately 2,000 pounds per square inch on pain sensitive structures.

cranial sacral

Cranial sacral therapy (also known as craniosacral therapy) is a gentle, noninvasive form of bodywork that addresses the bones of the head, spinal column and sacrum. The goal is to release compression in those areas which alleviates stress and pain. Cranial sacral therapy seeks to restore the natural position of the bones and can decrease stress from chronic injuries as well as provide relief from migraine headaches, neck and back pain, temporomandibular joint disorder (the inflammation of the joint that connects the lower jaw to the skull) and more.

REVIEWS for my Bodywork services

by Daniel on Jul 24
I came in with pain that had been nagging me for weeks and effecting my mobility. One session with Monica and the next day I was back in action.
by LORI on Jul 20
Monica is an excellent massage therapist. She worked on the problem areas I indicated and I left feeling more that 100% better. She's great!
by kenny on Jul 17
The massage session was great. Monica tended to the areas I told her about. She used the pressure I asked for.
by Paris on Jul 17
I found Monica through Groupon. Monica is FANTASTIC, she is listening to explaining to her about your discomfort and adjusting her massage accordingly. Her focus is to accelerate the healing process. I have "rotator cuff tendinitiis". After each massage session, I felt that I gained more and more mobility in my shoulder. I recommend her without any reservations.
by Fred on Jul 17
Very responsive to my body's needs; strong hands and excellent use of elbows/forearms to get deep pressure where needed, but careful, deliberate, and slow approaching each new muscle group. Very efficient with use of time!

by Steve on Jul 09
Monica is one of those rare therapists who just has an intuitive touch to relax your whole body.
by Jean on Jul 09
Monica does a very personalized massage based on what you ask her to work on. It is NOT one of those rote and routine massages.
