Today there is no practice. No doing of practice. No moving, no breathing, and no doing of moving/breathing.  No distinctions or duality.  Just breath moving through me. No struggle. No me. Only this gift of breath, taking flight. ~Julie Rappaport

Relaxation Massage


Massage is the manipulation of the soft tissues of the body including muscles, tendons, ligaments, fascia, skin, joints and other connective tissues with the intention of healing.  Massage helps to calm the nervous system, providing deep relaxation, as well as relieving soft-tissue aches and pains, improving range of motion, increasing local circulation, and providing an overall sense of peace and well-being.  These methods help to manage stress and anxiety and can help enhance immunity by improving the flow of lymphatic circulation.  Long sweeping strokes toward the heart may be utilized to relax and sooth the muscular and nervous system as well as stretching, trigger point and joint movement techniques that may be used to help release deeper tension patterns in the body. 
My massage style integrates techniques from Swedish Massage, Deep Tissue and Myofascial Massage, Thai Yoga Massage, and Reiki, and is utilized to help encourage well-being, deep relaxation and rejuvenation for the recipient on all levels--body, mind and soul. Full body massage is recommended to encourage overall balance and connection. I use gentle to moderate pressure with specific techniques aimed at reducing tension and stress from body and mind, leaving the individual feeling nourished all the way down to the core.
This massage is geared toward overall rejuvenation, rather than the treatment of injuries. It is excellent for those wishing to make bodywork a regular part of their self care practice. It is also good as a supporting, complementary practice for those who are healing from injuries or managing chronic discomfort, while they work with various practitioners toward this goal.
