Descriptions of Services

Now that I am fully vaccinated, I am excited to return to in-person services! To learn more, read about my Reopening.

Because virtual services were so successful during the Shelter in Place, I am also continuing to offer services Virtually where you can tap into your inner massage therapist! Learn from the experts what makes a great massage so you can give, and receive, it at home!

plus:

  • Cupping – placing special silicone cups on well-oiled skin in a way that creates suction to draw out tension and toxins from the tissue. Cups stay in place or slide over an area. Either way, space is created between the skin and muscles, increasing blood flow to tight areas and easing tension. Reviewed by NIH. Used in the Olympics and Hollywood.
  • Skin brushing – with natural bristle brushes, exfoliating dead skin to reveal youthful, healthy skin. Increases energy, stimulates lymphatic flow and the boosts the immune system.
