Massage

and Aromatherapy

For hundreds of years and across all cultures, massage has been a part of life. Massage therapy induces relaxation of the body and mind, and has countless applications for pain relief and dysfunction. Massage specifically addresses the body in a holistic systemic way to bring you rest and relaxation.

Serving the people of Rochester New York with high quality, mindful massage therapy since 2005, I bridge the gap between finding the difference in “just getting by” to reaching a higher quality of life. I would love to contemplate how massage therapy can help to transform you.

Your massage session is for YOU, and we only pursue along the lines of therapies you wish to receive. Any and all techniques can and will be adjusted to client’s comfort and open lines of communication are a constant.

What to expect at your massage session

After scheduling your massage appointment you will be emailed a link to fill out a health history form online. You must complete the form prior to receiving massage to ensure safety and the best care possible.  The form is HIPPA compliant and I am the only one with access to your chart.

Your massage will take place in my professional private office, located in the beautiful day spa Bodywork Unbound in Rochester NY. Here we will review your health before the massage session. You do not need to bring anything to the appointment unless otherwise notified, and can expect to undress to your comfort level. You will be draped with sheets in compliance with New York State regulations at all times.

Any cancellations or changes must be made by phone within 24 hours of the scheduled service. Failure to do so will result in a fee of 100% of the missed appointment cost. Please call me at (585) 737-2929.

 

Integrative Massage Therapy Session

My approach to massage therapy is to listen to the client and their body. I pull from several techniques in every session to offer you a custom massage based on your needs at the moment.

I am certified in NeuroMuscular Massage therapy, and also draw from other forms of including intraoral massage (within the client’s mouth), myofascial massage, deep tissue massage, Shiatsu, Swedish relaxation, Ashiatsu (massage given with the feet), aromatherapy and Ayurveda.

I have a strong background in conditions such as TMJ dysfunction, TMJD, chronic headaches, migraines, neck pain, limited range of motion, rotator cuff issues, low back pain, upper back pain, sciatica, plantar fasciitis, shoulder pain or injury, knee pain or knee problems and hip pain or hip problems.

Massage Room

Raindrop Essential Oil Massage Session

Steeped in Lakota First Nation traditions, this massage features essential oils gently poured onto the back (like raindrops), and massaged into the spinal tissue, back muscles and feet with specific strokes. Raindrop massage supports muscle, bone, skin and organ health, lymphatic movement and immune system support.

The essential oils synergistically support individual systems while ultimately fortifying the body in a holistic way. Hot towels are included in this session for deep relaxation and oil integration.

Ashiatsu

Loosely translated as “foot pressure” this style of massage is given by using foot pressure to deliver the massage instead of the hands. Also known as Oriental Bar Therapy, this modality makes use of a set of overhead parallel bars used by the therapist for stability and pressure control while using their feet to massage the client. It’s often described as deep but broad diffuse pressure, intense at times but also extremely relaxing.

Custom Aromatherapy and Facial Oils

Based on your massage session or intake form, I can create a custom blend of therapeutic grade essential oils for you to take home after your session to support any body systems that are in need. This includes blends for muscles, bones, emotional support, digestive health, women’s reproductive health, skin care, and many other areas where systemic whole body health is desired.
Ready for an all natural custom created skin care plan? I can create a facial oil based moisturizer specific to your skin care concerns, free of parabens, chemical preservatives, mineral oil and “fragrance/perfume”.  Natural skin care regimes can be suggested for the interested client! No matter if your concern is aging skin, blemish control, normal, oily or dry skin I can make a blend just for you!

I use therapeutic grade essential oils from Young Living Inc., which meet the highest standards in the industry, and pure organic carrier oils when desired. Contact me to request your personal blend or for more information!

Massage and Yoga Integrative Wellness Plan

Based on your massage session I can create an custom self care and yoga practice treatment plan for you.
Each body unveils certain patterns and restriction in a massage session. These patterns of overuse, injury compensation and postural dysfunction can lead to other systemic health conditions. It makes sense to create a therapeutically minded wellness plan at this point, in which the client can begin to reset these patterns themselves through the use of very specific yoga private sessions. After your massage I take notes of areas to focus on, and incorporate this into a custom yoga plan for you. The areas explored will give you a base in which to work from at home with yogic practices.

These private sessions are given on a separate day than your massage session to give the body time to integrate each therapy.  Yoga sessions are held in the professional yoga studio in Harvard Street Integrated Wellness.

Adding this package to your monthly wellness regime can enhance your quality of life across the board.
