European Lymph Drainage

European Lymph Drainage is a gentle, flowing technique that uses repetitive effleurage strokes to encourage the movement of the lymph fluid in the body. Deeply relaxing as the repetitive strokes and light touch lead the body to a blissful meditative state. This treatment aids the body in releasing excess fluid and is a nice boost for the immune system.

Intuitive Massage

After first tuning into the clients physical and energetic body, I ask the energies to guide the session into a customized massage for each client. I then use Swedish Massage techniques complimented with acupressure to encourage Chi flow, Reflexology to stimulate deep clearing and healing, and CranioSacral techniques to encourage flow and relaxation.

Shiatsu


Shiatsu Therapy is a non-invasive physical therapy that aims to support, balance and harmonize the clients system, improve circulation of blood and lymph flow and enhance flexibility. Due to the effect on the autonomic nervous system shiatsu treatments help to relieve stress and pain, as well as improve muscle, organ and joint function.

Shiatsu is a Japanese form of bodywork in which the practitioner uses applied pressure and release techniques. Treatments are traditionally provided on a futon on the floor. The client is fully clothed, and carefully measured pressure is applied along the meridian lines of the body with hands, thumbs or elbows; supported by gentle stretches.

Shiatsu massage helps remove blockages by realigning meridian points, which balances the qi to ease the body and mind. Through balancing vital energy, healing occurs in the body. The nervous and immune systems are brought to homeostasis through the stimulation of the meridians, as well as restoring the circulatory system, improving blood flow throughout the body.

Like Acupuncture, Shiatsu is based on the holistic system of traditional Oriental medicine, where illness is thought to result from imbalances in the natural flow of energy, or qi throughout the body. The theory behind Shiatsu is that our bodies are made up of energy and when this energy gets blocked it can cause pain, dis’ease’ and suffering. The body has twelve meridians, named according to its corresponding organ: lung, large intestine, stomach, spleen, heart, small intestine, bladder, kidney, heart governor, triple heater, gall bladder and liver. The functions of these organs have a broader definition in Eastern medicine which deepens our understanding of these energetic pathways in the body, recognizing that most diseases arise from core blockage along these meridians.
