Cathy is the best around. I’ve had so many massages and left feeling that it was a total waste of my money. Cathy is worth every penny. You leave feeling like a new person! —Michele P.

  • Deep Tissue Massage
    Deep Tissue Massage

    Unlike massage used for relaxation, Deep Tissue Massage targets specific persistent muscular issues.  With a focused technique that applies deep pressure on the affected areas, it is designed to relieve the tension that often forms in muscle and connective tissue.

    Deep tissue massage has been proven very effective in the treatment of:

    • Chronic pain
    • Limited mobility
    • Recovery from injuries (e.g. whiplash, falls, sports injury)
    • Repetitive strain injury, such as carpal tunnel syndrome
    • Postural problems
    • Osteoarthritis pain
    • Fibromyalgia
    • Muscle tension or spasm

    We will work closely with you and explain a customized treatment plan that addresses your particular needs.

    When fascia is tight, it can torque and tighten joints and is often a precursor to more serious issues such as strains, ligament problems, back pain, swelling, limited range of motion and more. Overall, tight fascia can cause headaches, full body aches and rob us of vitality.

  • Lymph Node Release
    Lymph Node Release

    Lymph Node Release Technique (LNRT) is a unique manual technique that enhances the way the lymph nodes work as we encourage drainage of the surrounding areas. The lymphatic system is part of the immune system and it is very superficial. Composed by vessels and lymph nodes strategically localized, the lymphatic system is responsible for collecting and draining metabolic waste, toxins and water excess.

    By stimulating the lymph nodes and pushing the lymph toward the heart, it will go back inside the blood stream, filtered by your kidneys and flushed out through urination. In this process, water intake is essential.

    Benefits of LNRT:

    • Assists Detoxification
    • Reduce Swelling
    • Improves Water Retention
    • Reduces Cellulite
    • Encourages Weight Loss
    • Reduces Lymphedema
    • Relieves Heavy Legs
  • Massage Cupping
    Massage Cupping

    Cupping therapy has been used by healers for more than 5000 years.  On a deeper therapeutic level, it is very beneficial for many conditions such as high blood pressure, sciatica, edema, sports injuries, chronic headache, fibromyalgia and neuralgia.

    Benefits of cupping include:

    • Clears stagnation
    • Drains & moves fluids
    • Relieves Inflammation
    • Nervous System Sedation
    • Expels Congestion
    • Stretches Muscle & Connective Tissue
    • Loosens Adhesions
    • Nourishing Blood Supply to the Skin
  • Myofascial Release
    Myofascial Release

    The body fascia may be regarded as a continuous laminated sheet of connective tissue that extends without interruption from the top of the head to the tip of the toes. It surrounds and invades every other tissue and organ of the body.

    An extremely mild and gentle form of stretching that has a profound effect upon the body tissues, Myofascial Release is a form of soft-tissue therapy that helps to restore motion and flexibility and eliminate pain.

    Do not let the gentleness deceive you. You may leave after the first treatment feeling like nothing happened. Later (even a day later) you may begin to feel the effects of the treatment.
