Medical Massage

Barbette giving Sweedish Massage

I have a thorough background in anatomy and physiology and have been trained in medical massage for the treatment of 13 conditions:

I use trigger point therapy, pressure point work, cross fiber friction, cupping and deep tissue massage to release chronic patterns of pain, muscle spasm, muscular stiffness, and tension as well as to aid recovery from injuries and surgeries. Trigger point therapy includes sustained finger pressure on irritated knots in the muscle tissue in order to break the cycle of spasm and pain. Pressure point work involves the direct pressure to muscles in order to soften and elongate contracted muscle tissues. Blood circulation is restored providing relief from acute and chronic pain.
