Utilizing specific techniques and tools to break up adhesions and restrictions in the soft tissue, this massage helps release chronic tension which may have developed from injury or overuse. Techniques used may include compression, press release, muscle release, trigger-point therapy and cross-fiber friction.

Thai Yoga Massage
Traditional Thai Yoga Massage is really a deep, full-body treatment, starting at the feet and progressing to the head. Using thumbs, palms, elbows, feet, and knees on acupressure points along the “sen” energy lines of the body (similar to Chinese Qi meridians), and using a sequence of gentle, flowing exercise movements (yoga like positions), the recipients’ body is moved, loosened and stretched working all the muscles, tendons, ligaments and joints. This unique and effective type of massage influences the energetic aspect ( called loom in Thai) as well as the physical, restoring the flow of energy throughout the body. It’s aim is to harmonize and energize to maintain health and well-being. The client is fully clothed (except for shoes & socks) and lies on a mat on the floor.
Scar Tissue Release Therapy
A simple scar from childhood to a major scar from surgery as an adult can have a profound physiological effect on the body. I use a scar tissue release system that approaches the multi faceted matrix of fascia three dimensionally. This particular technique helps to release and realign the adhered tissues (fascial restrictions). It works by lengthening the superficial to deep layers of fascia, breaking down adhesions and increasing lymphatic and venous circulation to the tissue.
Consisting of continuous effleurage strokes, deep kneading and stretching of tight, tense muscles using oil or lotion, this relaxing massage incorporates techniques fundamental to most styles of massage therapy, allowing for full body integration to take place.
