Swedish Massageis a system of therapeutic massage strokes performed in the direction toward the heart. The sequence in which swedish massage strokes are transfered are effleurage,( warming of the tissue) petrissage, (milking or kneading of the tissue) friction, (cross fiber or circular movement of the tissue) vibration, (slight trembling of the tissue) percussion(stimulating stokes to tissue) and passive and active movement which together improve circulation, range of motion and promote relaxation.
Deep Tissue Massage is a form of bodywork that aims to relieve tension in the deeper layers of tissue in the body.
Trigger Point or Neuromuscular Therapy is a style of bodywork that focuses on stimulating and releasing “trigger points” which are tender areas along myofascia tissue, which radiate pain to other areas. When these points are treated significant relief results. The techniques used in trigger point therapy are similar to those used in acupressure, but trigger point therapy is based on western anatomy and physiology. With this treatment session, a strengthening and stretching routine is used to regain strength balance and alignment. This process may be of discomfort at times, yet the effects are lasting and profoundly transformative.
Sports Massage is an adaptation of Swedish massage. Its purpose is to prepare athletes for sporting activity pre-event and post-event to help them warm up before and help them recover from the exertion after. Engaging in sports can often lead to strains and sprains. Sports Massage enhances performance and prolongs a sports career by helping to prevent injury, reduce pains and swelling in the body, relax the mind, increase flexibility, and dramatically improve recovery rates. Sports Massage is also highly effective in aiding the rapid recovery of an athlete whether from an injury or from overexertion by encouraging greater kinesthetic awareness and in turn promoting the body’s natural immune function.
was created by Lisa in the 1990's after positive lasting results. This system is patterned in conjunction with Swedish strokes, tigger point, neuromuscular and myofascial release techniques. Gentle light and deep flowing strokes are used with holding, friction, stretching techniques using origin and insertion of muscles: searching occluded fibrotic tissue, enhancing blood circulation, forcing irritants from sensitized nerve receptors, with light sacrum rocking to relieve and release tense holding patterns within the body.

Rx Perscription Massage differs from regular Massage and Bodywork in that the treatment is specifically directed to resolve conditions diagnosed by a medical doctor. I may use a variety of modalities or techniques during the treatment, but I focus the treatment only on the specific areas of the body related to the diagnosis. This enhances the body’s natural self-healing process and reduces the needed recovery time from injury.
