What style of massage is best for me?

I offer three types of massages: Table, Thai and Prenatal. Prenatal massage speaks for itself, but here are descriptions, guidelines and benefits to help you decide whether to schedule a Table or Thai session.

Table massage

Description:

  • Done on a massage table. 
  • Tailored to each client’s specific needs.
  • Combination of different styles and techniques (including some Thai stretches, muscle compression, Swedish (what most people think of as a traditional massage), trigger point therapy, range of motion (movement), reflexology, and craniosacral therapy.

Book this style if: 

  • you have specific issues you’d like me to work with therapeutically -- for example: lower back, neck, or shoulder discomfort, “knots” 
  • you just want to get on the table and relax and restore
  • you can’t go wrong with this option!

Benefits: 

People report feeling rejuvenated, restored, relaxed, looser, and relieved significantly of discomfort.


Thai massage

Description:  

  • Done on a floor mat similar to a futon mattress.
  • You wear either yoga clothes or something stretchy or loose.
  • In cooler months, Thai heated herbal compresses are used.
  • A Thai session is like taking a yoga class, but you are completely passive, while I stretch your limbs and joints and compress your muscles. Thai massage is often referred as “Lazy man’s yoga!” 

Book this style if:

  • You have a few knots here and there, but generally want to feel looser and relaxed. 
  • You have tight legs, tight hips, tight back
  • You work out a lot, don’t work out at all, sit at a desk all day, or are simply curious about it! 

Benefits: 

People report feeling completely relaxed and restored, and much looser than when they came in.
