The Somatic Therapy of Transformative Touch integrates a gentle touch and guided sensory awareness to support your body's innate ability to be at ease. It helps you discover the underlying cause of discomfort and restriction: why it’s there, what purpose it serves, whether the original purpose is currently useful, and how the habit might be shifted.
We use your body as a resource for your path to easeful living. The somatic therapist's role is to be a guide and mirror to discover and reflect what your body already knows about living your best life.
Sessions are done fully clothed with the client lying on a massage table.
Customized Therapeutic Massage
Swedish Massage is a very relaxing and therapeutic style of bodywork. It combines 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, and greater flexibility.
Deep Tissue Massage aims to relieve tension in the deeper layers of tissue in the body. It 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.
Several session lengths are offered to fit your needs, schedule, and budget:
- The 30-minute appointment is for when the you have limited time or only want a brief, focused treatment on one trouble-zone.
- The 45-minute appointment represents a spa or franchise clinic "hour" massage. It is an affordable option that allows for in-depth focus work or a full-body relaxation massage.
- The 60-minute appointment is a truly therapeutic hour of hands-on work. This will give your therapist enough time for a full-body massage that includes at least one area of deeper focus.
- The 90-minute appointment is for those who have multiple areas that need deeper work, who aren't able to fit regular appointments into their schedule, or who simply want the extra time to enjoy the sensation of relaxation.
Reiki is a Japanese form of energy work that balances the energy system in the body, which promotes relaxation. When stress is reduced, the body's natural self-healing mechanisms strengthen, helping to establish optimum health. I practice Reiki using a gentle laying on of hands, though contact is not strictly necessary. The benefits of Reiki range from the release of habitual mental/emotional stress to alleviating chronic pain.
Reiki can be a stand-alone service at the rates listed above, or it can be added to a massage appointment in 15- or 30-minute increments. When added to a massage, the cost is an additional $15 for 15 minutes or $30 for 30 minutes.
