Specializing in Swedish and Deep Tissue Massage, Reiki, Spinal Touch Alignment, Tuina, Craniosacral, Energy Work, and Aromatherapy in a beautiful atmosphere enabling you to release your stress and pain, and take with you an abundance of peace, relaxation and well being.

Spinal Touch Treatment is a non-force, energetic alignment that corrects postural distortion. Spinal Touch improves physiological balance, health and well-being. It is a thirty minute procedure that is a powerfully restorative force that can set the body’s own healing abilities into motion.

Massage treats Arthritis, Back Pain, Headaches, TMJ, Fibromyalgia, MS, Carpal Tunnel, Sports Injuries, Insomnia, Depression and more. Massage reduces stress and anxiety, increasing blood circulation, lymph function and oxygen levels while creating a mental awareness of your body’s needs.

Reiki is a hands-on healing art of channeling Universal Life Force Energy. It is peaceful, quiet and relaxing. It creates a change of awareness enabling your body to balance its energy, promoting self-healing. I offer full body sessions or can integrate Reiki into Massage and Spinal Touch sessions.

With over 8 years of experience in massage and bodywork, I draw upon the following techniques from which you can choose any combination: Deep Tissue and Swedish Massage, Aromatherapy and Flower Essences Therapy, Cranial Sacral Therapy, Acupressure, Energy Mapping and Meditation Instruction.
Aromatherapy is the art and science of using essential oils for therapeutic purposes. Essential oils are highly concentrated odorous extracts of a plant’s natural oils.

They affect us on a physical level when applied topically by entering the blood stream after passing through the tissues of the body, but they also have a very powerful emotional effect. Our sense of smell is our most immediate sense and registers first in the oldest part of our brain - the part that is responsible for emotional behavior related to survival. We learn to associate a smell with a particular emotion in an unconscious and instinctual way and this sets off a chain reaction within our nervous and hormonal systems which in turn influences a wide range of body functions and organs. As a massage therapist and bodyworker, I can put this emotional association to good use by helping clients associate the blends I use with feelings of well being, relaxation, calmness, and healing. I use only 100% pure and therapeutic grade essential oils from organic or wild crafted plant sources or from plants farmed without the use of pesticides.

Flower Essences do not have a scent and contain no chemical properties of the plants from which they are derived. They are made by infusing the flowers of a plant in water through sunlight and are believed to hold the energetic life force or vibrational matrix of a particular flower. They hold a pattern of wholeness around a particular theme, and when we take them into our being (flower essences can be applied topically or taken internally), we are given an opportunity to resonate with that wholeness.

During a massage session, you can choose from several lotions containing essential oil and flower essence blends to help relax, calm, balance, or purify. You can also receive a session that uses the subtle medicine of plants through the topical application of essential oils and flower essences along with guided meditations to gently clear blockages, replenish, heal, or stabilize energy.

Plant medicine is a wonderful way to help heal the disconnection between humans and nature, between body and soul.

When we experience a plant’s essence in a healing setting, we can begin to know again that spiritual forces are an integral and inseparable part of our human experience and the physical world.

Structural Bodywork: Optimizing Performance and Function
Massage in Motion (435) 220-1012

Effective bodywork optimizes physical performance and function, liberating our potential from the obstacles of stress. Too many people accept limitations as part of “growing older,” unaware of how amazingly resilient and adaptable the body truly is. Yet, the body, just like our mind and spirit, needs proper attention and care to thrive.

Structural bodywork is literally a liberating modality. Its objective is to unglue the many layers of connective tissue throughout your body so that these tissues can freely and appropriately move with one another. For an example, place your hand on top of your thigh and decipher what you feel there. If you’re like many people, you feel an undifferentiated mass of tissue beneath your skin. Yet, you’re touching at least three separate muscles, layers of connective tissue, bone, major blood vessels and nerves. Imagine being able to feel these different elements separate from each other; imagine how it would feel to move if these elements were not stuck together. These tissues are intended to move independently, to be able to adapt how they work together in each moment. Now, imagine experiencing freedom of movement throughout your body.

Structural bodywork can be integrated into massage to address a specific problem area or used in a multi-session protocol to free your structure throughout your entire body.
