I highly recommend a treatment with her.  It was an opening of positive energy flow for me.

“At FLOW Bodyworks, I offer Thai Massage and Integrated Massage, as well as one on-one therapeutic yoga.
Thai Massage, often referred to in the West as Thai YOGA Massage, is often described as “having accupressure AND yoga done to you at the same time. Thai Massage is performed on a large cushioned mat on the floor. Depending on the needs of the client and the amount of time allowed, the session could include a series with the client lying down and/or sitting. Clients are fully clothed when receiving Thai massage, and no lotions or oils are used anywhere on the body. However, occasionally, an herbal balm may be applied to smaller localized areas of discomfort, such as the hand, neck, or lower back. Hot herbal compresses can also be applied to specific areas of the body or to the entire body to allow for deeper muscle relaxation and, therefore, more energy flow throughout the body. The hot herbal compresses are applied over top of the client’s clothing. I recommend that my clients wear dark-colored, loose-fitting clothing for this reason, and to provide for freer movement and breathability. Primarily, Thai massage techniques include hand compressions, thumb presses, forearm rolls, elbow presses, knee presses, and heal presses, all of which are applied to the body’s Sen lines (energy lines), allowing for greater energy flow throughout the body. Traditional Thai Massage also includes gentle stretches and potentially increasingly deeper full body stretches, depending on the needs and flexibility of the client.

At FLOW Bodyworks, I also offer Integrated Massage, incorporating relaxing but firm Swedish massage with deep tissue techniques, trigger point therapy, sports massage, and myofascial release techniques. My intention is to integrate a variety of techniques in my massages to ultimately help my clients heal themselves, but I can certainly exclude any of these techniques, as well as adjust the depth, intensity, and speed of my massages overall according to my clients’ preferences. In other words, I want to give you the massage that YOU want and need, and even that can change from one treatment session to another.

I also offer one-on-one therapeutic yoga as either part of the scheduled massage session or as a separate yoga session. As part of the massage session, I use yoga in one of two ways. I use yoga as either as an assessment tool to determine imbalances in the body and therefore guide me to massage certain areas of the body more in depth and use specific techniques to bring about more body balance. Or I use yoga as therapy after the massage session to address areas of tightness, inflexibility, and/or pain; in this case of yoga as therapy, I give clients specific yoga postures to bring about even more circulation, flexibility, and pain relief. Therapeutic yoga in addition to the practice of receiving massage can more fully address imbalances in the body (mind and spirit) in a way that is longer lasting than either self-care practice would be individually.

Please call me to schedule an appointment. I look forward to working with you!
