A lot of people think about massage as a luxury service. The truth is, it's an investment in your health and quality of life. Research suggests that receiving regular massage can help with a wide variety of conditions and symptoms. It's a great complementary wellness service to add to any lifestyle or treatment plan. It's also an excellent preventive care option. Here are some of the ways I may be able to specifically help you using massage therapy:
Reduce anxiety and symptoms of GAD
Reduce symptoms of depression
Improve sleep and stress-related insomnia
Reduce chronic pain and inflammation associated with autoimmune conditions such as Fibromyalgia, Lupus, Rheumatoid Arthritis, and more
Reduce swelling of various types (i.e. post-surgical swelling, lymphedema, etc.)
Relieve sinus pressure and related symptoms
Relieve muscle tension and soft tissue strains
Reduce nausea, fatigue, and other symptoms of cancer and cancer treatment
I work with all types of individuals, but my areas of specialty are Manual Lymphatic Drainage for swelling reduction and pain relief, and Therapeutic/Relaxation Massage for individuals with anxiety, stress, depression, and chronic pain. My work has often been described as slow, specific, thoughtful, and relaxing. Each massage is customized to you. We can work on muscular tension, soft tissue issues, and still create a deep sense of relaxation. All in one session!
