I use any technique I feel would most benefit the client.

 

Self Care Tips

Muscle soreness can occur after deep work. The following self care tips will help offset soreness and lengthen the effects of bodywork.

  • Drink more water than "normal"

  • Take an Epsom salts bath 

  • Light stretching

  • Adequate nutrition  

CUPPING THERAPY

 

I practice a bodywork modality called Cupping (also knowns as cup therapy, cupping therapy, myofascial decompression).Cupping stems from a Chinese Medicine origin, and is now practiced widely with-in the massage therapy community.

 

I no longer offer bodywork sessions for cupping alone.

All cupping therapy is now a complimentary therapy to my manual work, and will be added to a session when beneficial (if the client is open to it).

Benefits of Cupping Therapy

  • Increases circulation and blood flow to an area

  • Myofascial Release: the negative pressure created by the suction of tissue into the cups generates heat, which stimulates the mobility of fascia

  • Eliminates trigger points and adhesions within the myofascia

  • Soft Tissue pain relief

  • Relaxation by down-regulating the nervous system

  • Increases Range Of Motion of a joint(s) by loosing the myofascia around the articulation

  • Disperse stagnant energy

 

Self Care Tips

  • If the cupped area feels hot or itchy, use cooling care on the area. This could include some cryotherapy or lineament of choice (I recommend Tiger Balm, Real Time Pain Relief,  or some DILUTED anti-inflammatory and analgesic essential oils like wintergreen, peppermint, or lavender). These sensations are NORMAL. They are a byproduct of myofascial changes. ​

  • Cup marks will most likely darken/intensify for up to 72 hours after the session

  • It is common to feel fatigued after a cup therapy session...listen to your body and rest if needed

 

KINESIOLOGY TAPING

Rates

$10 Add-In / $25 per roll

 

I use kinesiology tape within a session if I believe it will be beneficial to the session. I believe in educating my clients about self-bodywork, so I ask them to record the taping or walk them through the process so it can be replicated at home. 

WHAT IS KINESIOLOGY TAPE???

Rocktape is a type of kinesiology tape. The biggest attribute to the miracle of kinesiology tape is that it changes neurosensory input to the central nervous system at an area of pain and discomfort ...changing sensory output and decreasing or taking away your perception of pain.

 

Taping doesn't cure your dysfunction in the long term. It is a way to tone down pain and inflammation while applied to the skin. While the tape is on, I encourage you to work on mobility of the affected area. This helps to retrain the mind that the body is capable of moving with-out pain. I believe kinesiology tape is relatable to a cortisone shot...it is a non-pharmaceutical anti-inflammatory agent. 

Benefits of Rocktape

  1. Helps relieve pain.

  2. Decompresses an area of swelling and inflammation.

  3. Help to correct posture & soft tissue imbalance. 

  4. Normalizes muscle tone.

  5. Allows full range of motion to the area of application.

 

​Self Care Tips

  • Can be left on for 3-5 days.

  • You can shower with the tape on.

  • When the tape starts to peel off, cut it back carefully. 

  • GENTLY peel off the tape (ask and I will show best way)

Rocktape is an adhesive, hypo-allergenic, acrylic based tape with NO LATEX.

MASSAGE TOPICALS DISCLAIMER

I value quality over quantity. Any topical products I use within my practice are from reputable sources and I am very transparent with what I am applying to your skin. I use Doterra and Mountain Rose Herbs essential oils and products, local RitualX CBD salve or Blue Ridge CBD, Biotone Organics lotion, & organic jojoba or fractionated coconut oil as massage topicals. I am aware of skin sensitivity and the use of chemical additives in many massage products, which is why I use high quality brands or create my own products.
