I provide therapeutic massage in a safe and healing environment intended to decrease pain and reduce stress. The power of positive-touch has transformed my own life for the better, and I aim to offer each of my clients the same rewards. Guiding others toward the natural state our bodies wish to be in (relaxed without harmful stress) is my passion. I prefer to work with clients who are open to what therapeutic massage has to offer and care to communicate and reach their goals.
I attended Herzing University and Lakeside School of Massage Therapy where I received a clinical approach towards massage therapy, primarily focused on medical precautions and increased well-being, and graduated with honors. I am trained in a variety of techniques and modalities meant to release, soothe, stimulate, and stretch the muscles. Having a thorough understanding and respect towards the effects, benefits and contra-indications of each technique makes the client-therapist session that much more productive. By utilizing my Anatomy, Kinesiology and Pathology knowledge, I am able to work through the cause and effects of each client’s troubles, whether they be adhesions, trigger points, atrophy, pain and/or postural imbalances.
My Goals During Each Session
Our bodies have their own innate healing ability, so I strive to be nature’s assistant. Through helping my clients become more physically and emotionally self-aware, I am able to take this form of therapy from superficial bodywork to deeper, more mindful levels. I believe our muscles hold memories that can be released through massage and meditation combined. Encouraging my clients to breathe-deep-and-release each breath may assist the body to further let go of built-up tension. Focusing each session on maintainable goals and increased well-being makes sure each client’s needs are communicated and exercised.
My love for doTERRA Essential Oils
Incorporating essential oils into sessions is one of my favorite parts! doTERRA’s essential oils are Certified Pure Therapeutic Grade: harvested at the right time from the right environment all around the world. They are bottled without any synthetic fillers and are 100% Pure.
Deep Blue Rub is my go-to topical cream that leaves the body with comforting sensations of cooling and warmth: perfect for problem areas. This blend consists of Wintergreen, Camphor, Peppermint, Blue Tansy, German Chamomile, Helichrysum, and Osmanthus. It is also blended in a base of moisturizing emollients that leave your skin soft and non-greasy. (Information retrieved from doTERRA’s claims list)
The Aromatouch Technique is a sequence of 8 oils that have powerful aromatic properties when combined. These include Balance blend, Lavender, Melaleuca, On Guard blend, Aromatouch massage blend, Deep Blue blend, Wild Orange, and Peppermint. This technique is meant to provide the recipient with an essential oil experience and connection on an emotional level through trust and relaxation.
