|A massage can do wonders for you, both physically and mentally. No longer considered just an indulgence, massage is also recognized as effective treatment for stress and anxiety, improved blood circulation and lymph function and relief of muscle and joint soreness.
There are many kinds of massage that descend directly from Sweden, Germany, France, England and the Orient. The common link among all the methods is interaction with muscles, muscle attachments and circulation (As opposed to spine and bone manipulation practiced by chiropractors).
My work involves the purest form of relaxation, primarily through the most popular form, Swedish massage. Swedish massage employs movements in a wide range of light to firm pressure. It can be slow and gentle, vigorous or bracing, depending on the client’s needs or wishes. It can involve gentle stretching, hand and finger pressure, gentle tapping or thumping and some friction.
During my business career I was also fortunate enough to experience many forms of massage around the world. I try to combine the best forms that I have experienced into the most popular, Swedish Massage.
Whether you want to relax, relieve stress or work on neck, back, or shoulder tightness, I will do my best to accommodate your needs. You are the client and you may direct the kind of massage and touch you need.
Depending on the Season of the year I use cotton or flannel sheets, oils or creams, always bring a heating blanket and a selection of relaxing music and CD player.
Of course I’ll be glad to discuss any of your needs or concerns before you make an appointment. Again, you are the customer!

|Massage Health Benefits Are Numerous
We all know that a massage feels great and the feeling can last for hours. That alone is reason enough for you to call me. But that’s just one of the many benefits of getting a massage. Therapeutic massage has been successfully used as one of the resources in the overall treatment of these health concerns.
Despite its many healing benefits, massage isn’t meant as a replacement for any type of professional medical care. It is best to let your doctor know when trying massage as part of a medical treatment.
