Deep Tissue Therapy

Deep Tissue Massage is a form of bodywork that aims to relieve tension in the deeper layers of tissue in the body. Deep Tissue Massage is a highly effective method for releasing chronic stress areas due to misalignment, repetitive motions, and past lingering injuries. Due to the nature of the deep tissue work, open communication during the session is crucial to make sure you don’t get too uncomfortable. Keep in mind that soreness is pretty common after the treatment, and that plenty of water should be ingested to aid with the flushing and removal of toxins that will have been released from the deep tissue during the session.


Myofascial is often used when an injury happens. Similiar to pulling a string on a sweater if the fascia is the thread.  The injury spreads throughtout the body.  Fascia does not show up in standard testing so the injury is often not detected, but the pain is very detectable to you. The fascia tightens to support an injury, but needs to be released to heal and relieve the discomfort.

Energy Work

Energy work is based on the belief that everyone has a "life force", and that the body needs to sustain its balance for optimum health. Anytime you experience emotional or physical illness, it indicates that your life force has simply become unbalanced. I work directly with your energy field to restore balance and flow to your entire system. And once your energy field has been restored to full health, your body will follow.


Acupressure is based on one the most ancient principles of healing - that simply touching a specific point on the body will release stress and improve health in the body. In an acupressure session, I apply firm pressure directly to these "points" on your body, which relieves your muscle tension and improves your circulation. This simple and powerful technique has been shown to very effective in treating headaches, backaches, and even insomnia.

CranioSacral Therapy

CranioSacral Therapy is a bodywork method that focuses on gently stimulating your CranioSacral system (membranes and fluid that surround the brain and spinal cord) to heal the body by improving the functioning of the central nervous system.CST effectively complements your body’s natural healing process, and has been known to help alleviate a wide variety of problems including:  

    • Chronic Fatigue Syndrome
    • Central Nervous System Disorders
    • TMJ
    • Fibromyalgia


Reflexology is a type of bodywork that focuses on applying pressure to the specific nerve zones in your feet. Unlike other foot massages that intend to mostly relieve tension in the feet themselves, reflexology is a far more in-depth science that aims to harmonize your entire body. According to reflexology, every part of the human body is mapped into your feet. Reflexology treatments have been found to be highly effective for conditions such as allergies, headaches, and depression.

Lymphatic Drainage

Lymphatic Drainage Therapy aims to gently and rhythmically move the lymph through the body, especially swollen areas of the body, relieving pressure and enhancing the functioning of the immune system.

Polarity Therapy

Polarity Therapy works with currents that run through the body  like the path of your veins.  When stressed, eating less than healthy, not drinking enough water or just living in the world, your body reacts.  Headaches, insomnia, back pain, etc., indicate that there are blocks in a system of your body.  This helps to open the blocked areas and assists you in getting back to healthy living.

Swedish Massage

Swedish Massage is a very relaxing and therapeutic style of bodywork. It combines oils or lotion with an array of strokes such as rolling, kneading, and percussion to help the body improve its circulation. The benefits of this type of bodywork are wide-ranging and include relief from aches and pains, decreased stress levels in the body, enhanced mental clarity, improved appearance, and greater flexibility.

Cold Laser Therapy

Conditions & Injuries

What makes cold laser so effective? It treats the source of the pain, not the symptoms. Medical practitioners have traditionally utilized immobilization and powerful medications to mask or numb the pain which only treats the symptoms of pain, not the source.

The cold laser therapy is effective because it stimulates the damaged cells to promote re-growth and healing rather than hiding the pain. There are very few limits to what this device can provide to sufferers of acute or chronic pain.

The Laser works best on pain associated with soft tissue. The most common areas of treatment are:

  • TMJ (Jaw Pain)
  • Neck
  • Rotator Cuff
  • Shoulder
  • Sciatica
  • Mechanical Back Pain
  • Carpel Tunnel Syndrome
  • Golf Elbow
  • Tennis Elbow
  • Knee
  • Plantar Fasciitis
  • Neuropathy
  • Post Surgery
  • Chronic Pain
  • Acute Pain

Why it works?

Low Level Laser Therapy (aka cold laser) is a well-established therapy for pain relief and rehabilitation of numerous injuries. The laser light penetrates tissue where it is absorbed by cells and effectively stimulates healing and rapid pain relief.

Micro-Current Electrical Stimulation sends small amounts of electrical current to the cells which stimulates repair and healing – it promotes the production of ATP (the cell’s energy molecule) and protein, as well as assists in the absorption of nutrients and the elimination of wastes. When injured cells are able to repair, increased mobility and pain relief are achieved.

The Laser, which combines the two therapies in one device, was compared in a clinical study to a cold laser device and separately a micro-current electrical stimulation device. The LTO device was successful in reducing pain by at least 2 points in 93.1% of the completer population (compared with 83.3% with the TENS device and 62.5% with the LLT device).
