While a massage session can be entirely about one of these massage types, most massage sessions (especially after we've worked together for awhile) will be a customized combination of techniques based on our pre-table conversation. Relaxation Massage can relieve pain, tension, and stiffness in joints and muscles; calm the nervous system; improve the supply of oxygen and nutrients to the cells. Ask me about coupling this with a mindful body scan for a total relaxation experience. And hot stones, cupping and/or hot packs and be added on request.
