I have a special interest in working with clients living with acute or chronic pain. However, I also provide general relaxation massage techniques for stress reduction. Clinical research demonstrates the value of massage as a means to decrease the symptoms related to a number of conditions including arthritis, fibromyalgia, low back pain, migraines, repetitive stress injuries, and injuries from sport activities and automotive accidents.
In My Massage Practice I Incorporate a Variety of Techniques and Modalities, Such As:
Myopathic Muscular Therapy
A system of muscular manipulation designed to accomplish relaxation in muscles in which there is progressive and residual tension from physical strain, nervous strain, sports injuries, accidents, infections, and/or years of declining health. Created by Dr. Claude Heckman, myopathy reduces inflammation and pain, restores circulation and motion, and aids in the restoration of normal body functions without the use of oil.
Myopathic Sport Massage
Deep Tissue Massage
Deep Tissue Massage is similar to Swedish massage, but the deeper pressure is beneficial in releasing chronic muscle tension and and breaking up scar tissue. The focus is on the deepest layers of muscle tissue, tendons and the whole fascial system. Deep tissue massage is a type of massage therapy that focuses on realigning deeper layers of muscles and connective tissue.
One of the most commonly taught and well-known massage techniques, Swedish massage is a vigorous system of treatment designed to energize the body by stimulating circulation. Five basic strokes, all flowing toward the heart, are used to manipulate the soft tissues of the body. Therapists use a combination of kneading, rolling, vibrational, percussive, and tapping movements, with the application of oil, to reduce friction on the skin. The many benefits of Swedish massage may include generalized relaxation, dissolution of scar tissue adhesions, and improved circulation, which may speed healing and reduce swelling from injury.
Geriatric massage uses some of the same basic massage techniques as other modalities. It is, however, tailored to the specific health conditions and needs of the elderly population. Geriatric massage is a form of massage designed to meet the specific needs of the elderly population. It involves gentle manipulating of the soft tissues of the body to improve blood circulation, relieve pain and increase range of motion. Active or passive movement of the joints may also be part of geriatric massage.
Elderly people often suffer from a variety of such age-related diseases as Parkinson’s, arthritis, diabetes, heart disease or strokes. As a result, they have poor circulation and limited physical capability. Many of them are also anxious, depressed and lonely. Human touch it self is very beneficial in increasing the well-being and attitude!!! Geriatric massage can help them maintain and improve their overall health, as well as regain certain physical functions that have been reduced or lost due to aging. In addition, it can relieve anxiety and depression and provide comfort to touch-deprived elderly patients and improve their quality of life.
Ashiatsu (barefoot massage)
In the Japenese language “Ashi” translates to foot and “Atsu” into pressure. Ashiatsu, is a barefoot massage technique in which the therapist delivers deep, broad, consistent pressure while utilizing their feet and body weight. Working with gravity instead of against it.
QiGong and/or Continuum techniques, which can ease anxieties and reduce stress, is the use of respiratory exercises to open lung passages, oxygenate the blood, and cleanse the body by eliminating gaseous toxins. The client is encouraged to breathe deeply while the therapist works the appropriate muscles. This is technique that you can use on the golf course or poker table to still the body.
This traditional Chinese treatment combines hands-on and hands-off techniques that balance the flow of qi (energy) through the body, move and relieve qi blockages, and improve circulation. Qigong is also a combination of timed breathing and gentle flowing movement, meditation, visualization, and conscious intent all working together to achieve an integrated adjustment of mind and body in order to better cultivate, circulate, and balance qi, or life force. Qigong theory is the basis of traditional Chinese medicine and is used to treat many serious illnesses, as well as for relaxation.
Therapeutic stretching, for seniors and / or clients rehabilitating musculoskeletal conditions helps to regain functionality that’s been affected by Range Of Movement (ROM) losses, and occasionally to alleviate pain. Also provides general flexibility, enjoyment and self-awareness, as part of spiritual development, and for supporting health and well-being.

Accelerated Recovery Through Sound Science
When many people think of sound healing, they think of gongs, tuning forks, and Tibetan singing bowls. But what about the sound you can’t hear? What about sound in the infrasound range, beneath the range of human hearing?
It turns out that when pulsed in a chaotic fashion, infrasonic sound waves can do some truly incredible things, including:
- promoting circulation
- decreasing inflammation
- providing pain relief
- decreasing stress and anxiety
- improving cellular cooperation and communication
- improving mood
- increasing relaxation
- increasing hyaluronic acid levels
- accelerating recovery from injury
- and much, much more
Controlled research has proven that Infratonic sound waves, which are emitted from two of our devices, the Infratonic 9 and the VitalRest, do many of these things and more. We’ve helped restore the health of thousands of customers worldwide thanks to this therapy. We envision a future where chronic illness has faded out of the human condition, and we think sound will be one of the key players in bringing that vision to fruition.
Infratonic Sound Vitality
Provides pain relief. It’s highly effective on pain caused by acute injuries, swelling, fatigue, and chronic conditions. Simply stated, Infratonic Therapy is beneficial in treating trauma, both physical and emotional.
How It Works
Relief starts with the cells. Our bodies are pretty incredible. Sometimes they just need a little help to be at their best. When your body is damaged, cells get jolted and trapped in a pattern of frenzy that derails their focus on healing. The sonic waves and vibrations of the Infratonic 9 penetrate down to the cellular level to dissolve trauma and reset cells to their natural patterns, enabling them to calm inflammation, relieve pain and accelerate recovery.
The Infratonic 9
The Infratonic 9 is ideal for promoting healing and relief for any kind of injury or pain in tissues, muscles and joints — from acute injuries to chronic
spasms, traumatic accidents to menstrual cramps, and everything in between.

Rapid Release Therapy
QUICK. EFFECTIVE. THERAPY.
Relieve Pain, Tension, and Stiffness; Relax and Revitalize Muscles.
RRT is a breakthrough in theraputic technology. RRT targets brittle scar tissue with the shearing force of planer waves that resonate with scar tissue. This helps painlessly and quickly break down scar tissue. Scar tissue forms in a lattice pattern without blood supply as a temporary patching mechanism for wounds and injuries. This dead collagen is effective in repairing injuries, but dense and less elastic than surrounding, healthy tissue. When scar tissue remains after it’s usefulness it can cause adhesions and nerve entrapment, causing pain, numbness and a decreased range of motion. Rapid Release Therapy is focused on relief of soft tissue problems affecting nerves, muscles, tendons and ligaments. Soft tissue disorders are usually the result of overuse, injury or surgery.
Some of the conditions caused by scarring of soft tissue are:
- frozen shoulder syndrome
- carpel tunnel syndrome
- tendonosis, muscle spasms
- reduced range of motion
- back, shoulder and ankle pain
- headaches, TMJ
- knee problems, tennis elbow
If you suffer from any of these conditions and would like to explore the healing effects of RRT please call me, I can help!
Electrical Muscle Stimulation (EMS)
Electrical Muscle Stimulation (EMS), also known as neuromuscular electrical stimulation (NMES) or electromyostimulation, is the elicitation of muscle contraction using electric impulses. The impulses are generated by a device and are delivered through electrodes on the skin near to the muscles being stimulated. Electric stimulation can be muscular, general and transcutaneous electrical nerve stimulation (TENS). The muscular type of electric stimulation seeks to strengthen the muscles by reducing muscle spasms. Also known as EMS, this stimulates the skeletal muscle using electric impulses to cause muscle contraction.
TENS is commonly used to help with chronic pain. The general type of electric stimulation is used for healing strained muscles and alleviating pain decreasing inflammation and swelling of affected tissues. Administration of electric stimulation should exclude patients with pacemakers or those who have certain kinds of skin disease Pregnant women should also avoid this treatment. As always, consulting certified medical practitioner should be done before using this treatment plan.
I also Educate and Teach about Beneficial Stretching, I cater specifique to the clients needs Therapeutic Exercises as a way to fallow up after our Therapeutic Masasge session and/or address / bring up the attention to a Pathological Patterns in Clients Daily Routine.
