Massage Training

I practice Swedish massage, Deep Muscular therapy, Sports massage, Trigger Point therapy, Acupressure, Reflexology, Reflex Lymphatic massage, Shiatsu therapy, Craniosacral, Prenatal massage, Lymph Facials, Thai Yoga, Reiki, and Neuromuscular therapy. In my Therapeutic Senior Massage practice, I most often apply the principles and techniques of lymphatic massage, reflexology, acupressure, and neuromuscular therapies.  The purpose of my massages is to soften and stretch the connective tissue, flush the muscular fluids,  oxygenate the joints, and move lymphatic fluid.

 

More about me

I am passionate about seniors and the terminally ill receiving massage to improve their quality of life and comfort. Receiving a massage can significantly benefit those who have chronic pain related to arthritis, osteoporosis and vascular diseases. Massage improves verbal and non-verbal communication for elders with Dementia or Alzheimer’s, as human touch creates a way to interact and connect with others, decreasing feelings of isolation and loneliness. I provide massage to interrupt the pain cycle and offer the experience of pleasant sensations in the body. After a massage, seniors are relaxed, have greater physical comfort, feel tended to and cared for. Massage can also improve skin conditions and allows for greater joint flexibility. I enjoy singing lullabies to my clients while I give a massage at home where my clients may lie in bed or sit in a lounger where they can fall asleep during the massage.
