Shiatsu

60min – $80
90min – $115

Add on cupping for an additional $15

An Eastern-style massage that is guided by the elements of water, wood, fire, earth, and metal being in balance. Each element rules certain aspects of your being on a mental, spiritual, and physical level. This massage is done on a mat on the floor, typically fully clothed. It utilizes pressure along the meridians and assisted stretches to offer relaxation and restoration.

You will want to wear comfy clothes you can move in for this kind of massage, similar perhaps to what you might wear to yoga. The nature of this massage is energetically based, so you can have no pressure to a lot of pressure depending on your preference.

Energetic Therapy

30min – $45

An energetic therapy session is typically relatively gentle, combining one or more energetic modalities to bring a sense of balance and rejuvenation to the recipient. Receipt of energy work can help improve mood, relieve stress, and promote your body’s natural healing ability. It is not a replacement for medical care and treatments, but it is a wonderful companion to them.

A session will include one or multiple of the following modalities: reiki, basic polarity, foot reflexology, shiatsu meridians/points, chakra balancing.

 

Cupping

$15 add-on to most massage services.

Cupping can be added in with most services offered to enhance the massage experience. This technique uses special cups to gently pull the tissue up with suction, acting like massage in reverse.

This can aid in the reduction and breaking up of scar tissue, removal of toxins from the body and muscles, ease fascial tension, and more.

Please be advised that cupping tends to leave marks on the skin. They are not harmful or painful, but they look like perfectly round bruises. They can range from light in color to very deep, and can last from just a few days to a week and change.

Labor & Delivery Massage

$100 deposit, $50 an hour, plus travel. All rates to be discussed prior to services.

Massage for labor can be an amazing thing for the soon-to-be mother. It’s a fantastic way to help ease anxiety and tension associated with labor, can help mom be more comfortable during the process, and assist her with pain management. In addition, it will help support the body in relaxing muscles so that it has an easier time preparing for and allowing the passage of the child during delivery. In addition to the massage, I am a trained Reiki Master, and I am a longtime belly dancer and instructor so I bring both of those modalities to the table when it comes to assisting you with your labor and delivery process.

If you think that you might like massage to be part of your birth plan please be sure to contact me early in your pregnancy. I prefer to see you for at least one massage during your pregnancy so that we both know each other a bit more before this special time in your life. In addition I have limited availability for this due to the nature of babies and timing (they’re not reliable to their due dates). 

We will need to have a meeting, which will involve you, your partner (if applicable), and myself to review timing and expectations, as well specific payment terms and fees involved. Please contact me for further details.
