45 | 60 | 90 mins     Therapeutic Massage     $60 | $85 | $115

Aims to relieve tension in the deeper layers of muscle and connective tissue in the body. Heat packs, stretching, and Myofascial release techniques may be used during a session to help release chronic stress areas in connective tissues and muscle due to misalignment, repetitive motions, and past lingering injuries. A specific plan of action is decided upon based on each individual's therapeutic goals.   

Myofascial release technique focuses on loosening the connective tissue which surrounds all muscle fibers, bones and organs in the body. This technique allows muscles to have space to relax to, and can help assist the body to realign on its own. This slow, and warming technique communicates with the body, asking the brain to release the tension instead of forcing the connective tissue and muscles to respond.  Many patients receiving Myofascial release on a consistent basis have reported overall improvement of their condition, diminished pain, soreness, or headaches after treatment, and prolonged relief after and individual treatment.

Due to the nature of the deep tissue work, open communication during the session is crucial to make sure you don't get too uncomfortable. Soreness for one or two days after the massage session is common after the treatment. Drinking plenty of water after a session can aid flushing of toxins from the body that were released from tissues in the body during the massage.

45 | 60 | 90 mins   Reiki Energy Work $60 | $85 | $115

Reiki, (pronounced "ray-key"), is a hands on healing technique that originated in Japan by Dr. Mikao Usui. There are many forms of Reiki however (Egyptian, Hawaiian energy work), and is a holistic method for stress relief. It helps to calm the nervous system, metabolize stress hormone, and also promotes healing and improvement of pain threshold. It is not a cure for any diseases, but a help with relaxing the body. We see it as a supplementary energy therapy that works in harmony with other types of medicine to combat anxieties and illnesses. 

All Reiki practitioners offer a different experience during a session. Typically, a session is administered with the client lying on a table, fully clothed. A reiki session focuses on facilitating a safe space for enabling meditation and calming of the body while stopping overactive of thought patterns often experienced day-to-day. An Integrative energy session can include the use of tools like essential oils, guided meditation, crystal and metal sound healing bowls, with Reiki energy work that can increase balance of energy and and calm in the body. As a licensed massage therapist, Nicole can incorporate therapeutic massage, or reflexology in addition to Reiki in an Integrative Energy Healing session, and she has completed two Reiki Master Certifications.

A Reiki energy session can focus intention on balance of emotional, mental and physical states. When energy of the Charka centers has been blocked over long amounts of time, it is believed that there is a link to physical, mental, emotional and spiritual dis-ease within the body. Reiki Master practitioners act as conduits, channeling the intuitive healing life force energy to areas of a client's body that is need of cleansing and relaxing. The practitioner may focus on specific Chakra energy centers, or areas of the body such as: hands, feet, legs, arms, shoulders, neck, or head. Hands are hovered over the body, or gently resting hands over the Chakras. When sound healing bowls are used, they may also be gently rested over the Chakra centers, and struck, or rung. The vibration of the bowls help to attune the vibration of that Chakra.  Reiki practitioners’ gift comes from a Higher source, our creator. Reiki is passed down by a Master Practitioner to a student, who teaches how to attune the sensitivity of energy; and this lineage goes back centuries.
