I personalize every massage to what my clients want and need. I integrate several different types of techniques into each session: Swedish, Deep Tissue, Sports, Lymphatic Drainage, and Aromatherapy. There is no extra charge for any of these services, as I feel you are paying for the result – how I get there should not be up to your wallet but up to my skills and knowledge. The industry standard for other massage therapists is to increase the price for Deep Tissue, Aromatherapy, or Lymphatic Drainage - I do not.
There have been news reports about massage parlors and the "other" type of massage. Let me be very clear about this: I do not participate in that and I only provide professional medical massage.
My rates are simple; no gimmicks.
60 Minutes ................................................ $60
90 Minutes ................................................ $90
2 Hours ..................................................... $120
Raindrop Technique.................................. $90
This is your classic soothing massage. This massage uses long gliding strokes to increase circulation and induce relaxation. It will also help to decrease muscle toxins, improve flexibility while easing tension.
Deep tissue massage is a type of massage aimed at the deeper tissue structures of the muscle and connective tissue. Deep tissue massage uses many of the same movements and techniques as Swedish massage, but the pressure will generally be more intense - however "no pain no gain" is NOT the goal with this massage! It is also a more focused type of massage, as the therapist works to release chronic muscle tension or knots.
Sports massage is geared toward athletes of every kind, from world class professionals to weekend warriors. The massage focuses on a specific group of muscles associated with the athletes' sport. This massage uses a lot of stretching techniques that promote flexibility, remove fatigue, improve endurance, help prevent injuries, and prepare them to compete at their absolute best.
Manual Lymphatic Drainage uses a very light pressure with gentle, rhythmic strokes to increase the flow of lymph in your body. There are lymph vessels, much like your blood vessels, that run through your body. The lymph system is part of your body's immune system and helps fight infection. Unlike blood, which is pumped around by your heart, the lymph system has no pump. Sometimes the lymphatic system needs a little help!
Help your body with this amazing essential oil Raindrop Technique! Ideal for anyone seeking to: support your immune system, aid in relaxing muscles, assist your lymphatic system, and enhance your overall well-being. Nine oils are dropped onto your feet and back, complemented by massage and lymphatic drainage. After the application of oils, a hot compress is placed on the back to expedite oil absorption and relaxation.
Aromatherapy is use of the highest grade essential oils either in combination with your lotion, or applied directly to your skin during any type of massage. Not only does it smell fantastic, but there are healing properties of the essential oils that will aide in greater relaxation and with your therapeutic relief. There is no additional charge for Aromatherapy during your treatment.
