FAQ

What kind of massage do you do?
My massage technique combines a variety of modalities in which I have been trained. It is based in traditional Swedish massage, but also can include deep tissue massage, trigger point therapy, myofascial massage, sports massage, stretching and other techniques specific to different conditions and body areas. Each massage is tailored to the needs of the individual client.

Where are you located?
I am located at 939 Baxter Avenue in the Highlands. There is ample parking in the rear of the building. For directions click here.

What is Swedish Massage?
Swedish Massage is what most people think of as "regular" massage. It combines effleurage (long strokes) and petrissage (kneading) to relax muscles. Additionally, percussion and friction can be used to awaken muscles and address specific areas of tension.

What are Trigger Points?
Trigger points are spots in the muscles where tension builds up and causes tightness and pain. They are what most people are referring to when they say they have a painful “knot” in their muscle. Trigger points often refer pain to different parts of the body than where they are located. In Trigger point therapy, the massage therapist can release trigger points by using special techniques of pressure and vibration. It can be quite uncomfortable for a moment. Trigger point therapy can release tremendous amounts of tension and make many muscle and joint problems disappear. Often the work is described as a “good kind of pain.”
