Therapeutic Yoga Session
Originally, yoga was taught by one teacher directly to one student. The great ancient teachers understood the importance of individualizing each yoga experience to meet the needs of the student. Rather than focusing on yoga methods and practices, individual therapeutic yoga instruction fundamentally focus on the clients’ needs. Most people looking for a private therapeutic yoga session are either looking for relief from symptoms, pain or want to spend some time working with an injury or managing a condition. These sessions may be especially helpful if you are experiencing stress or anxiety. A Therapeutic Yoga session may incorporate mindful movement, breathing techniques, guided meditation or visualization, sound therapy, aromatherapy and more. It can help with healing from past emotional and physical trauma, living with auto-immune disorders, anxiety, depression, insomnia and a myriad of other conditions. When you work with a teacher one on one, the teacher is able to help you experience the benefits of yoga in a safe, personal way. A private therapeutic session will help you get the most out of a public class should you choose to take one as well. Students of all levels and experience are welcome. The therapeutic yoga session is designed specifically to meet your needs where you are right now. All props will be provided.

Deep Tissue Massage
Deep Tissue Massage is a form of bodywork that aims to relieve tension in the deeper layers of tissue in the body. Deep Tissue Massage is a highly effective method for releasing chronic stress areas due to misalignment, repetitive motions, and past lingering injuries. Due to the nature of the deep tissue work, open communication during the session is offered to make sure you are comfortable. Keep in mind that soreness can be common after the treatment, and that plenty of water should be ingested to aid with the flushing and removal of toxins that will have been released from the deep tissue during the session.
Reiki is a Japanese form of energy work that cleanses and balances the energy system in the body. As a result, the body's natural self-healing mechanisms strengthen, helping to establish optimum health. During a session, I work directly with your energy field to remove blockages, detoxify your system, and restore your vital life force energy. Reiki utilizes a gentle laying on of hands to conduct the necessary energy force between us. The benefits of Reiki range from the release of habitual mental/emotional stress to alleviating chronic pain
In Cupping Therapy, glass or plastic cups or jars are placed on your skin over an area where you may be having pain, tension or discomfort, and the cups create a vacuum by suctioning the air out. One way to think about cupping is that it is the inverse of massage. Rather than applying pressure to muscles, the suction uses pressure to pull skin, tissue and muscles upward, allowing increased circulation to the area. You usually will feel a tight sensation in the area of the cup. Often, this sensation is relaxing and soothing. The cups remain on your body anywhere between 5 and 20 minutes depending on your comfort. Each treatment is unique to you on that particular day. One very common area to be cupped is the back, although cups work well on other areas too- particularly on fleshy sections of the body.
Cupping causes the skin to temporarily turn red, blue or purple, especially if there is an injury or stagnant fluids (toxins, blood and lymph) in the deeper structures of your body. This is the therapeutically desired effect and is normal. The more visible or darker in color the discoloration, the greater the level of stagnation and toxicity. The skin discoloration can last anywhere from a few days to a week, but is rarely painful. As treatments continue and the release of stagnation has been dispersed (usually the 3rd or 4th treatment) no discoloration is likely to occur at all. This is the result of having internal unwanted toxins purged.
Fixed Cupping: The cups are placed on a selected area of your body and then left in place without being moved.
Moving Cupping: As the name implies, in this method your practitioner applies massage oil or cream on your skin in selected areas, puts the cups over the areas to be treated and then slides them around that region of the body- most commonly the back. The cups slide easily because the cream has lubricated your body.
Benefits of Cupping: Deep tissue work and release without discomfort, reduced pain, moves stagnation and drains fluids, relieves inflammation, promotes relaxation in the nervous system, breaks up and expels congestion during colds and respiratory issues, loosens adhesions, relieves stress and anxiety, reduced chronic pain and fatigue, boosts immune function and speeds up healing.
Swedish Massage is a very relaxing and therapeutic style of bodywork. It combines oils or lotion with an array of strokes such as rolling, kneading, and percussion to help the body improve its circulation. The benefits of this type of bodywork are wide-ranging and include relief from aches and pains, decreased stress levels in the body, enhanced mental clarity, improved appearance, and greater flexibility
Aromatherapy massage is a therapeutic technique which combines the natural therapeutic properties of the essential oils and the healing power of massage therapy. These oils are the concentrated essences taken from the flowers, fruit, seeds, leaves and bark of certain plants. There are about 400 essential oils, but only about 40 are commonly used in aromatherapy. In aromatherapy massage, essential oils are usually mixed with a carrier oil like sweet almond, fractioned coconut oil, or grapeseed oil. A relaxing aromatherapy massage, for instance, might have lavender or bergamot, while a massage for sore muscles might include peppermint and eucalyptus. Before your first aromatherapy massage session, your massage therapist will conduct an initial consultation with you to learn about your desired outcome. They might ask about the current state of your work life, home life, physical health and mental state to learn about what you need. The benefits of aromatherapy massage affect a wide range of health conditions of nervous, circulatory, lymphatic, immune and muscular systems. Aromatherapy massage is a pleasant method for mental clarity, relaxation, stress and headaches alleviation
