Depending on your physical condition and specific needs, modalities are combined to address discomfort from daily overuse created by job specific tension or regular workouts. Bodywork addresses injury/illness prevention and recovery, emotional holding restrictions, and movement re-patterning.

Modalities combined to address your personal needs during a session may include:

Trigger Point Therapy: Often used by Chiropractors, this focused point work goes deep into the inactive parts of muscle fiber to reactivate unresponsive areas, stimulating toxin release, increasing blood flow and thereby returning range of motion.
Russian Sports Massage: A vigorous, active approach to pre-event warm up, cool down, and recuperation.
Zero Balancing: A series of holds, traction, and movement releases that focus on tissue held vibration at the level of bone structure.

Prenatal Massage: For the mother to be, work is done side-lying with pillows, and helps relieve stress from tight hips, shoulders, and achy feet.
