Description: Do you love massages but feel that most of the time you get a massage it "doesn't do anything" or won't make a difference very long after you've left your therapist's hands?
I specialize in Neuromuscular Therapy that have longer lasting effect than a "regular" massage.
By going deep into your tissues we can release scar tissue and trigger points that many times are the root of your pain and sometimes poor posture. If these trigger points aren't being released in a muscle or it's connective tissues, only a very temporary release of your tension will take place, and soon after you've left your therapist, your pain will be back.
I also practice Craniosacral Therapy which can be very valuable after for eg. a car accident, dental work or a line of of traumas that the body might have experienced throughout a long life. CranioSacral work, which is a lvery non-invasive technique in order to work with the Central Nervous System, can also be an option for those of you who strongly dislike the heavy pressure that characterizes Deep Tissue work.
Lastly, I offer a combination of a Swedish Massage and other techniques and modalities, so that you can both relax and get pain relief too. Hence, the name!
