Modalities

Kristen offers the following massage, bodywork and healing modalities. They may also be combined for a custom-made session, depending on the client’s needs and requests. (The only exception is for Thai Yoga Massage, which is always performed by itself and for a minimum of 80 minutes – see details below.

A brief intake survey will be given before each bodywork session to assess the client’s present needs and to be sure that all issues are communicated and addressed fully.

Swedish/Therapeutic Massage
A gentle, relaxing, restorative, full-body massage, that increases circulation, relieves stress and revitalizes mind, body and spirit.

Deep Tissue Massage
A firm massage focusing on areas of chronic tension, using acupressure points and many deep tissue techniques to relieve pain, open up the full range of motion and restore energy flow.

Hot Stone Massage
A deeply relaxing, soothing, full-body massage using locally sourced warm river rocks, which penetrate heat deep into the muscles dissolving tension, melting away stress and balancing the energy field.

Prenatal Massage
A nurturing, relaxing, stress-relieving massage for the mother-to-be during any trimester, including the last trimester of pregnancy!  A specially designed table that gently supports the belly allowing a face-down position, enables you to fully relax the lower back muscles while enjoying all of the therapeutic benefits of massage for you and the little one, and easing the common discomforts of pregnancy.

Foot &/or Hand Reflexology
Ancient pressure point massage that moves stagnant energy, relieves tension, dissolves physical, mental and emotional discomfort and uplifts your entire being. 

Energy Healing Sessions (Reiki/Healing Touch)
Experience deep peace, relaxation, rebirth and renewal through a focused session with the universal healing energy often called Reiki or Healing Touch.  These sessions will help you to become more aware of the universal life force within you and all around you, and to discover your natural ability to heal and be healed by aligning with the presence of this divine light energy that is everywhere. (Sessions are given fully clothed)

Aromatherapy
Aromatic, therapeutic grade, organic essential oils, custom blended especially for you, are incorporated into any service free of charge. As they are absorbed through the skin, as well as through the sense of smell, a healing, comforting and integrating experience occurs for the whole being.   A wonderfully uplifting and therapeutic addition to any session!

Thai Yoga Massage
This 2000 year old dynamic bodywork therapy is a healing art directly rooted in the Indian healing traditions of Ayurvedic medicine and yoga.  The founder of Thai Yoga Massage, Jivaka Kumarbhaccha, was a renowned doctor and yogi, who treated the Buddha, among others.  The earliest Buddhist monks traveled to Southeast Asia accompanied by Ayurvedic doctors who practiced the ancient healing art that would later evolve into traditional Thai Massage.

In this unique healing system of Thai Yoga Massage, the practitioner guides the client through a series of gentle yoga postures, while palming and pressing along the body’s energy ‘Sen’ lines and pressure points.  Together these actions result in a full body treatment that relieves muscular tension, improves circulation, boosts the immune system and facilitates a balanced and rejuvenated experience of body, mind and spirit.

Thai Yoga Massage sessions are performed on a mat on the floor; both client and practitioner are dressed in comfortable clothing allowing ease of movement and flexibility.

Complimentary: (Offered for free with all services)

*Aromatherapy – Aromatic therapeutic grade organic essential oils, custom blended especially for you, may be incorporated into any service free of charge.  As they are absorbed through the skin and the sense of smell, a healing, comforting and integrating experience occurs for the mind, body and spirit.

*Hot stones – may be applied in target areas of chronic tension, as needed.

*Amethyst Biomat – a high-quality infrared heating pad that enhances the healing properties of the massage, detoxifies tissues and relaxes the body and mind profoundly. The Biomat is used in healing and pain relief practices all over the world and is registered as an FDA Class II Medical Device.  It offers relief from muscle pain, joint pain and stiffness, muscle spasms, minor sprains and strains, muscular back pain, relaxes muscles and temporarily increases local circulation.  How it works: Unlike an electric blanket which uses electric coils to create heat, the BioMat uses a combination of fabrics and Amethyst stones to generate far infrared rays which is then transferred to the body as heat.  The heat comes from friction generated within the body through the effects of far infrared rays.  Far infrared rays warm the inside of your body making contact with the BioMat, producing the effect of a gentle, internal massage for your cells.
