Brenda has the experienced and knowledgeable hands to offer safe and effective massage throughout every stage of pregnancy. A woman’s body endures a lot of tension and stress during this very special time and studies show that massage can naturally and safely relieve anxiety, decrease aches and pains, and improve baby development. Massage is a safe and enjoyable modality that can relieve most discomforts during pregnancy. Conditions such as sciatica, low back pain, and foot pain can all be relieved to help keep the expectant mother comfortable during this special time.
This style of massage has the ability to treat the specialized needs of a seasoned athlete or a weekend warrior. This massage is based on achieving proper muscular balance, improving or preventing the loss of muscle and joint range of motion, and alleviating any pain associated. Massage can be provided before activity to help the athlete work more efficiently. After an event, massage can help to flush and release the metabolites and toxins that accumulate in the muscles due to extreme stresses. Massages provided between events help to keep the athlete’s body pain free so that training schedules don’t get interrupted. Massage therapy can be very beneficial in treating a multitude of common sports injuries such as tendonitis, plantar fasciitis, I.T (Ilio-Tibial) Band Syndrome, muscle strains, and sprained ankles to name a few.
This treatment begins with an aromatic foot soak, followed by a lower leg and foot massage, and concludes with a stimulation of the reflexive points in your feet that will ignite your body’s own natural healing capabilities.
TMJ (Temporomandibular Joint Syndrome)
If you clench or grind your jaw, you are no stranger to the horrible pain it can cause. Brenda took extra education to learn how to effectively treat this condition. She strongly recommends that you book a full hour for the first appointment. This way, she can treat the postural muscles ( upper back, neck and shoulders) as well as the jaw itself. The first half of the treatment is spent releasing those postural muscles using traditional massage techniques. The second half of the appointment is spent performing intraoral massage. At this point, Brenda will put on vinyl gloves and slowly slide down the inside of your cheek to release the muscles around the jaw. The client often experiences varying degrees of immediate relief. After this first appointment, Brenda will make recommendations for your treatment plan including the frequency and duration of future appointments.
Ancient Thai Massage
This ancient form of massage is slow and rhythmic and incorporates elements of traditional massage, acupressure, deep stretches and yoga postures with the therapist doing all of the work. It has both relaxing and energizing effects. Thai massage is well suited to all body types and is customized to clients of all levels of flexibility. It is performed on a mat, on the floor, without oil, while the client is wearing loose comfortable clothing. This form of massage simply feels amazing and it’s no wonder why its techniques have been passed down for centuries.
Heated Stone Massage
Rock your body with a heated stone massage. This massage has the ability to combine either light relaxation or deep tissue massage, along with the penetrating warmth and silky sensations of stones gliding over the body. It’s a therapeutic treatment with a luxurious feel. Spoil yourself and still have it covered under your benefits.
