“The art of relaxation”
Defined by its smooth movements it does not have the same intensity as deep tissue massage for example.
The benefits of a relaxation massage include but are not limited to alleviating tension in the muscles, improved circulation and an overall boost in mood.
“Breathe with healing pressure”
A deeper massage in which the fingers, thumbs and elbows are used to release chronic muscle tension, using slow deep pressure.
I work across the length of the fibres of the superficial muscles, with the intent of massaging connective tissue that lie underneath. Helpful for chronically tense areas such as neck, low back, and shoulders. ⚛ View Rates
“Magic with 9 Essential Oils”
Combines aromatherapy, reflexology and massage to create healing and cleansing through structural and electrical alignment to the body.

“Dancing with Stones”
A unique massage therapy used in different cultures for many years. I prefer basalt stones from Hawaii.
During a treatment, the client lies on a series of flat hot and cool stones - covered by a towel - that trace the spine. Oil is applied to the skin and glides the stones across the body’s meridian lines. Some treatments place small stones into the palms of the hands, and lightly wedged between the toes.
“Watch Your Belly Bounce”
This massage is for the specific needs of pregnant women. It's important to tell me how far along you are when booking appointments in order to ensure your comfort during the treatment.
As long as you get the green light from your doctor. You will want to avoid massage during the first three months of pregnancy as it may trigger dizziness and add to morning sickness.
“A Step to Better Health”
Reflexology is an alternative medicine healing system in which specific points on the feet or hands, known as reflex points, are manipulated to bring about changes in other parts of the body. These reflex points are believed to correspond to every major organ, gland, and area of the body.
Reflexology helps with boosting the immune system, fight cancer, reduce stress and anxiety, improve digestion, correct hormonal imbalances, ease arthritis pain and boost fertility.
Ayurvedic head massage supports the nervous system by alleviating stress; stimulates the lymphatic system, encouraging the elimination of toxins; helps break down muscle knots; relieves chronic neck and shoulder stiffness; increases oxygen uptake in tissues; and improves circulation.
Head massage can also be used to stimulate hair growth, improve concentration and relieve migraine pain. ⚛ View Rates
“Passage to Ancient Energy”
Reiki is a therapy often described as palm healing or hands-on-body healing in which I place hands lightly on or over a client’s body to facilitate the process of healing.
Offered in combination with guided meditation as I offer a narration to help elicit a specific change in your health or life. You are first guided to relax your body and mind, to help you reach a deep meditative state before going on a journey, in your mind, to reach a specific goal and healing.
“Healing with Herbs”
A mix of herbs is wrapped in a compress, then steamed (in bamboo or electrical steamer) and when hot, applied to the body by pressing, gliding in circular, linear and/or rolling movements.
This technique can offer a variety of health benefits such as stress relief, relaxation, alleviating fatigue and soothing muscles, and increase your emotional and physical well-being.
“Pressure points East to West”
Shiatsu is a manipulative therapy developed in Japan and incorporating techniques of anma (Japanese traditional massage), acupressure, stretching, and Western massage.
Shiatsu involves applying pressure to special points or areas on the body in order to maintain physical and mental well-being, treat disease, or alleviate discomfort. ⚛ View Rates
“If I didn’t tell you I was using my feet, you would never know”
Performed on a therapeutic floor mat. Ashiatsu massage is a deep pressure barefoot massage technique that has been performed for thousands of years, with roots in Asia and India.
Also known as Barefoot Shiatsu, Back Walking, or Gliding Feet Massage – is a type of barefoot bodywork using the heel, sesamoid, arch, and/or whole surface of the feet to give the massage.
