INTRA-ORAL MASSAGE

A minimum of 3 sessions within two weeks gives the affected jaw an opportunity to heal.  

  30 minutes $42.80

 60 minutes $74.90

Temporomandibular joint (TMJ) Massage is palpation of the muscles surrounding the temporomandibular joint (TMJ).  Treatment includes the muscle attachments inside the mouth, or intraoral, as well as the external muscles around the head, face and neck.  This modality is especially helpful for individuals who have any of these symptoms or behaviors:

*teeth clenching while sleeping

*migraines/headaches

*popping or clicking in the jaw while eating, talking or wide openings of the mouth

*tinnitus (ringing in the ear)

*chronic neck/head/shoulder pain

 

The treatment consists of working the jaw muscles on both the outside the mouth. Sterile gloves are worn the entire time work is being done within the mouth. The intraoral technique is very slow and precise, with an emphasis on client communication about pressure and sensation throughout the session.

First session is one hour.   This allows time for observation of the jaw in rest and through range of motion.  Once the assessment is complete, treatment of the involved muscles follows.

TABLE YOMASSAGE

 60 mins $70.00  

90 mins $100.00

Restorative Stretch + Massage Therapy + Mindfulness = Yomassage™

Sending some warm Yomi love. I've recently completed my training to become a certified Yomassage® Therapist. I'm excited to bring this new service to the area and offer this mindful practice to my clients. Yomassage®  is another way to receive therapeutic touch, it's a relaxing massage modality that I am bringing  to the city. Being, aligned with my mission, its another way to make massage accessible and affordable  to the community. 

 

THE PHILOSOPHY

Yomassage was founded on the belief that everyone deserves access to therapeutic touch. In order to make this happen, Yomassage Founders, Tiffany Ryan and Katherine Parker, created a modality in which clients can receive touch in a small group setting. In addition to offering massage at an accessible rate, Yomassage sessions appeal to more people because they are fully clothed and offered in a safe environment.

The “Yo” in Yomassage is based on the principles of yoga: focus on the breath (pranayama) and the yogic philosophy of looking within. The combination of touch, gentle stretch, and mindfulness provide an avenue for relaxation and healing.​​

THE PRACTICE

Yomassage Therapists are trained to make sure everyone feels comfortable and welcome throughout the entire session. When you walk in the room, you will be greeted with warm smiles. Your therapist will walk you through a series of comfortable and supported Yomassage positions that will be held for 5-10 minutes. While you are relaxing in these positions, I will guide you through breath work and mindfulness exercises as they walk around and massage you in each position. You will end the session having received a full body massage, and feeling a state of ultimate relaxation.

Similar to Yomassage classes, this is a one on one service session. 

Indulge in a transformative experience that nourishes your mind, body, and soul. Each Table Yomassage session begins with a unique themed meditation that helps keep you grounded for the duration of the session. You will enter a deep state of relaxation as you melt into a series of six restorative stretches on the massage table while a Yomassage therapist provides therapeutic massage and guided meditation. Through the session, you’ll move into a deeper state of tranquility and relaxation.

BODY GUA SHA SCRAPPING

 45 mins - $60.00 

30 mins - $45.00 

Using a horned tool in a scrapping technique, constricted tissue and scar tissue is released. The gua sha tool stimulates blood circulation, improves range of motion, and relieves pain. Gua sha can cause red or purple marks on the skin that can last anywhere from a few days to a couple of weeks and might be slightly sensitive.  

What was once an intense massage technique used on the body in ancient Chinese medicine is now a highly sought-after delicate and meditative facial treatment amongst skin care obsessed women.

Also referenced as coining, spooning or scraping, gua sha (pronounced “gwa sha”) facials are much gentler than the traditional deep scraping technique that was used to treat things like a fever or cold.

CHAKRA BALANCING

60 mins - $75.00 

Reiki is not a religious practice. Reiki is a beneficial healing modality that is very popular and utilized for health and wellness. It is based on energetic principles and is practiced in many hospitals, medical settings, and in private practice all around the world. You lie with your eyes closed, hands up to receive the healing. Reiki helps balance a person's energy, remove energy blockages, and release negative energy. 

 

I lay my hands on the standard chakra positions or at various places on the body where I am called. The next step is for me to observe the movement of energy in your chakras. Finally, I return to the head of the bed and say affirmations of thanks for using me as a vessel for channeling the healing Reiki energy. Time is given for you to integrate and allow time for reflection and then the session is complete.
