Many Spas and Massage Studios have a listing of services and types of massages, and more times than not, these services vary in price. My approach to this is different in that I charge a flat amount based on time, not modality. I never understood this varying price practice and felt that my job was to do the work necessary to achieve results. I’ve had questions referring to this, and wanted to clarify any confusion. Pricing can be found at the Pricing and Hours Tab!
Services That Are the Baseline of my Sessions.
Deep Tissue and Sports Massage w/ Assisted Stretching
Gradual and slowly applied deep tissue strokes are applied to problem areas while longer connecting strokes bridge everything together. Stretching, both assisted and PNF are used to increase the range of motion while finishing off the lengthening of muscle fibers. Clients leave the table with decreased pain, increased movement, and a feeling of ease and relaxation. An excellent choice for those who have physical pain, and or chronic and acute issues. Most popular selection.
I incorporate the fascia blaster into the massage as a tool to use for pain relief, as well as for aesthetic purposes. The primary purpose is to loosen the fascia and prepare the body for more effective and deeper work resulting in less discomfort. Inadvertently, the body does respond in a manner that is more aesthetic with decreased cellulite and trimming down of the body itself. For warming I use a large and weighted heating pad to prepare the fascia so that it is pliable and most ready to work with. Manual manipulation of the soft tissue alongside the fascia blaster allows for more meaningful and advanced techniques.
Long relaxing strokes utilizing some pressure and depth focus more along connecting the body to slow down the nervous system and bring a sense of calm and relaxation. A focus on the breath is encouraged making the client aware of not just the breath but bring awareness of the body. Ideal for those who suffer from stress, anxiety, depression and who need to feel a sense of calm and tranquility.
Elements That are Added in and Utilized as Needed
Hot Stones ~ Shiatsu and Reflexology ~ Aromatherapy ~ Energy Work ~ Chakra Readings and Clearings
I use both Basalt (traditional black hot stones) and Himalayan Stones. Himalayan salt is loaded with 84 trace elements and minerals and becomes an additional benefit when utilized in massage.
Shiatsu and Reflexology are Eastern based modalities that focus on pressure points and include a bit more compression and point work focused along the bodies various meridians.
Aromatherapy is the utilization of essential oils in the massage to address various issues the client has either through direct application or simply just the scent.
Energy work is the merely the facilitation of energy clearing, moving through dense and blocked areas of the body, allowing a clearing of dense and heavy energy and allowing for a feeling of lightness and clearing.
Chakra readings involve the use of a pendulum to read the 7 different energy centers of the body. Clearing of the chakras is done from a baseline of energetic work.
I tend to incorporate elements of Shiatsu and Reflexology into my sessions and use essential oils in a majority of the products that I make. If you have an interest in having a custom blend of essential oils, that option is available to you upon request.
Energy work and Chakra related work is only utilized upon request.
A variety of packages can be assembled upon request and the most common are as follows:
Sandbridge is a popular vacation spot, and many of the beach houses accommodate large groups of people. I bring my table, oils and body butters, and sheets to create an ambiance that allows you to maximize the relaxation and enjoyment of your downtime without ever having to leave the comfort of your vacation. In my experience of working in Sandbridge, it is still possible to achieve a calm and relaxing massage even in a fully booked house and all attention to details are considered when working on the client to ensure a calm and relaxing experience. 30 minute, 60 minute and 90 minute sessions are available in group sessions.
Bridal Parties are a time when you and those closest to you are celebrating your upcoming life. While the wedding may be everything you dreamed, planning and executing such an affair can take a toll on even the most ambitious bride and her party. Take some downtime to pamper, indulge, and celebrate this moment in your life.
Couples have found that the time spent bonding together can strengthen the foundation of what they have built together. Nothing builds that bond more than the time the two of you spend being pampered. Not only do you get a chance to relax together, but you also are able to learn techniques and ways in which the two of you can contribute to each others well being. Nothing builds a bond and intimacy better than a good massage.
