Few things tell staff that you appreciate and care about their wellbeing more than bringing massage to them. I offer in-office chair massages, designed specifically to relieve muscle tension where they likely feels it most - neck/shoulders, arms/hands, and lower back. Clients remain clothed during these sessions, which generally last no more than 20 minutes each. Rates start at $70 an hour, 3 hour minimum, plus a $25 materials fee.

PURE RELAXATION MASSAGE

Your pampering starts as soon as you settle into the Zero Gravity recliner, designed to decompress the spine and relieve tension in the low back through an advanced lumbar support system. Once fully reclined with your legs elevated above your heart, your body is better able to circulate blood and oxygen. You will feel weightless and a deep sense of relaxation on a mental and physical level. Next your feet are wrapped with warm epsom salt and essential oil compresses, while your hands are placed in paraffin wax. Your feet will also enjoy the paraffin treatment, but only after you’re transported into a more restful state through a scalp (and optional face massage post-COVID 19) massage that naturally releases melatonin and helps you relax and de-stress. A warm eye pillow rounds out the head portion of of the massage, which also helps relieve eye tension and sinus pressure. Next, after the paraffin bags are removed from your feet, your legs and feet are treated to a gentle exfoliating and revitalizing sea salt scrub in your choice of peppermint rosemary or lavender oil infused scrubs. A light moisturizing oil is then applied before a traditional Thai foot reflexology massage is performed. A variety of hands-on techniques, including graceful two-handed palm movements, stretches, circular massage movements and thumb pressure along with the use of a special teakwood Thai tool designed to apply acupressure to stimulate the 27 body organ reflex points, is used on the soles of each of your feet. Finally, after the paraffin bags are removed from your hands, the treatment ends with a deep hand and lower arm massage and finished with heated mitts to further intensify the massage and help your hands absorb the skin-softening paraffin emoluments while you are refreshed with a cooling face/eye mask and hot stones on your lower legs and feet. You are guaranteed to leave feeling relaxed, renewed, and refreshed. | 90 Minutes $90  

 

A shortened, 30 minute version is available as an add-on to any table or Thai mat massage for just $20.

ABOUT THE THERAPIST

Thank you for visiting my website! After decades in the for-profit and not-for-profit business sectors, I decided it was time to go into business for myself, in a career that would be rewarding and help others in a more tangible way. I think I have found my calling. I graduated in June 2018 from the highly-regarded Louisville School of Massage, and passed my licensing exam in the same month. I opened my practice in July 2018. 

I have come to appreciate just how fine-tuned the body is - like a high-end sports car - and if one thing goes out of alignment, or starts to work improperly, then the whole system suffers. There are many benefits of massage, and many modalities at my disposal to help you maintain your optimum performance.

Clients have used the words "precise," "therapeutic," and "intentional" to describe my massage techniques. There are a few principles that guide my work, but one I often share with new clients in particular is this: When a muscle encounters an unknown stimulus, it's first reaction is to recoil (think of how your foot and leg recoil at you stepping on a sharp object, like a tack); however, as the brain has time to process what is happening, it sends a signal to the muscle that it's okay and it can relax (hence, you're able to lower your foot/leg when you realize the tack didn't penetrate the skin). That signaling between your muscle and the brain takes about 20 seconds to come full circle. Similarly, when a massage therapist grabs or tries to stretch your muscle, its tendency is to recoil or tighten until it gets a chemical signal from the brain that it's not going to be harmed. With this philosophy in mind, my process is slower, more measured, and often viewed by clients as more therapeutic as I give the brain time to process what I'm doing and send those chemical signals to get the muscles to relax!
