Acupressure Massage

Acupressure Massage is like no other massage you’ve had before. I follow the energy of your body to deliver just what you need and want. It can be very light and relaxing. It can be very deep and therapeutic. Or, it can be very soothing and spiritual. It all depends on what you want and what you need at the time of your session*.

Acupressure Massage is the standard Clinical Massage that also includes the Traditional Chinese Medicine of Acupressure. I will work on specific issues and assist you in bringing your body, mind, and spirit back into balance so you have the best scenario for radiant health.

What can you use Acupressure Massage for? My specialty is chronic issues, but you can use if for just about anything that isn’t feeling like you want it to, physically or emotionally. If your body is physically and energetically in balance it can better heal, and Acupressure Massage brings it into balance. Here are some examples to get you thinking:

  • Muscle and connective tissue
    • Adhesions and scars
    • Imbalances
    • Injuries, strains, and sprains
    • Soreness, tightness
    • Spasms
    • Whiplash
  • Emotional Issues such as
    • Depression
    • Grief
    • Feeling “stuck”
    • Nervousness, anxiousness
    • Too much worry, anger, fear
  • Illnesses from the common cold to cancer
  • Injuries
  • Headaches
  • Chronic Issues such as
    • Arthritis
    • Auto-Immune Diseases
    • Back Pain
    • Blood Pressure
    • Chronic Fatigue
    • Digestion
    • Eating Disorders
    • Fibromyalgia
    • Lupus
    • MS
    • Respiratory issues
    • Skin Issues
    • Spinal Injuries, paralysis

What to Expect: For an Acupressure Massage treatment come dressed in stretchy shorts and a t-shirt. For women, you’ll need to remove your bra from under your t-shirt. Most of the time you will be on a massage table, but occasionally you may be on a floor mat, depending on the meridians that need attention. All you need to do is relax and let me do the work, which involves massaging meridian pathways and certain acupressure points, joint movement, and stretching.

* Note: You may want a TCM assessment to more precisely determine what you need and to find the imbalances. See the Additional Services page for more information.

Clinical Massage
Services  for People Only

Clinical Massage is not the “feel relaxed, let me sleep” type of massage. It’s the “lets get your pain fixed” massage. We are treating a certain issue while keeping the whole body in mind. It is typically used for muscular, skeletal, and fascia issues, but can also be very helpful in other ailments as well.

It is often considered “deep tissue” massage. The intent is to go deep enough to affect a relaxing change in the muscle and fascia tissue. For this it should not be deep enough to cause you to tense, since that will defeat the purpose, but deep enough to affect what we call “pleasure pain”.

What to Expect: We need direct skin contact in order to do this work so you will need to remove your clothing (to your comfort level). You will be draped with a sheet at all times with only your legs, arms, and back exposed and only when we are working on them. You will be an active participant in the treatment, letting us know when “enough is enough”, and actively moving or resisting movement. We do it together.

Swedish Massage is the typical massage that everyone loves—it’s the “aaaaahhhh” massage that relaxes you, lets you unwind, and relieves those tired aching muscles.

What to Expect: We need direct skin contact in order to do this work so you will need to remove your clothing (to your comfort level). You will be draped with a sheet at all times with only your legs, arms, and back exposed and only when we are working on them. There will be relaxing music and scent if you want it. It’s a full body massage from head to feet, and all you have to do is relax and enjoy.
