 Past-Tense Massage Therapy Services

Swedish Relaxation Massage

I’ve perfected a relaxing touch that’s perfect for relieving stress, elderly clients, migraine headaches, fibromyalgia or emotional balance.  Note: therapeutic massage only, not “sensual.”

Sports Massage

Having worked with several triathlon, running, and cycling clubs, and as an athlete myself, I am familiar with techniques for a myriad of sports.  It’s great both pre- and post-race.  It improves the “dead leg” feeling from over-training and speeds up recovery after your event, often minimizing Delayed Onset Muscle Soreness (DOMS).  I have special techniques for chronic injuries like knee pain, knee arthritis, patellar tendinitis, plantar fasciitis, IT Band Syndrome, patellar-femoral pain syndrome, gluteal or lumbar sciatica, hip arthritis, surfer’s lats and shoulders, frozen shoulder, rotator cuff tears, whiplash, golfers and tennis elbow (tendinitis).  I can include Active Release Technique (ART) to help you recover.

Pregnancy Massage

If you have been frustrated with other pre-natal massages because the therapist wouldn’t give you firm pressure, you need to try this massage.  I have special positions that will allow me to apply deep pressure safely.  Let me relieve the soreness of your neck, shoulders, and glutes from the structural body changes during pregnancy.

Deep Tissue Massage

I incorporate myofascial release and Thai massage techniques as well as traditional elbow work.  I believe in communication so it firm but not painful or damaging to the tissue (bruising).  Got neck pain and headaches from a non-ergonomic workspace? This is perfect for you.  Got low back pain? Having fractured my back 10 years ago, I know how to safely apply pressure to stop the spasm cycle and promote healing.  I often hear a client’s vertebra “adjust” on its own, just by releasing the muscle.

Hands-On Chair Massage

I bring a special relaxing chair that allows me to provide a massage in a small space.  It is performed fully clothed without any oils.  I have use a special towel that allows my hands to smoothly glide across any kind of clothing and provide firm pressure if requested.  Perfect for corporate office settings, a reward for project deadlines or holiday gift.  Works well at promotional events or trade show booths to draw foot-traffic.  It’s also a great idea for a family holiday party gift or a girl’s night at home.
