doTerra AromaTouch Technique, Certified

I am continuously studying various forms and styles of bodywork. Most recently I became a Certified Myoskeletal Therapist, Lower Body Specialist, Upper Body Specialist and Posture & Pain. I consider this a deep tissue modality, it focuses on creating length and space. CranioSacral Therapy is also an area of speacialty.

Deep Tissue and MyoFascial massage are used to increase range of motion, muscle length and release binding.

Hot Stone Massage - Hot stone is the ultimate in relaxation. Long broad strokes with heated and cooled stones melt stress away leaving a meditative mind.
Chair Massage - Chair massage is excellent for people on the go or stuck at a desk. With the chair the sessions are shorter, up to a half hour, and is excellent for loosening tight hips, backs and shoulders.
Vibration Meditation - Gong Guided Meditation - Offered once a month as a group or added to any massage service. Creates a soothing meditative state where healing can take place.
