bodywork and Massage
What is Bodywork and Massage?
Therapeutic and functional massage supports recovery from injuries. Injuries that can be sustained from motor vehicle accidents, life long wear and tear or during intense physical activities, like sports or birthing.
I combine an unparalleled combination of skills that I’ve developed in my experiences as a bodyworker to help you heal.
My career has spanned over a decade and in that time I’ve learned and mastered healing techniques such as cupping, trigger point therapy and Dermoneuromodulation, to name a few.
I will use the knowledge I have in bodywork, wellness practices and scientific research to create a plan and method to achieve optimal physical results.
We will work together to eliminate injury inducing habits, incorporate at home maintenance methods, and encourage simple routines to sustain your overall physical wellness.
I believe that self care is sustainable and wellness is a lifestyle. We will find your healing path that keeps you on your road to success.

Cupping is a modality developed in Traditional Chines Medicine. It involves placing cups on the skin to create suction. The suction facilitates healing with blood flow, as well as the flow of Qi(life force) in the body. Cupping increases blood circulation to the area where the cups are placed. This can relieve muscle tension, which can improve overall blood flow and promote cell repair. It can also help form new connective tissues and create new blood vessels in the tissue.
Cupping has been used to treat a wide variety of conditions. It may be particularly effective at easing conditions that create muscle aches and pains. Since the cups can also be applied to major acupressure points, the practice is possibly effective at treating digestive issues, skin issues, and other conditions commonly treated with acupressure.
During a cupping treatment, a cup is placed on the skin and then heated or suctioned onto the skin. The cup is often heated with fire using alcohol on a cotton ball placed directly into the cup. The fire source is removed and the heated cup is placed with the open side on your skin, the air inside the cup cools and creates a vacuum that draws the skin and muscle upward into the cup.

Trigger point massage therapy will alleviate the source of the pain through cycles of isolated pressure and release, the recipient actively participates through deep breathing as well as identifying the exact location and intensity of the discomfort.
