July 2018 marked 1 full year since I've been practicing at this location. Sincere thanks to all my clients who have followed me here, and to the new ones I have met. Thank you for your trust and confidence. I will continue to provide the finest care to you in all aspects, and to research and carry the special products that make your visits as effective as can be. I hope all are having a glorious Fall.
To your continued health and well-being!
With love and kindness,

I now carry topical CBD oil, cream and ointment for pain relief. CBD comes from the hemp plant and is a non-psychoactive compound. Humans naturally have cannabinoid receptors that bind to CBD making it an effective pain relief tool. These products also have menthol as an active ingredient, which is cooling, making them great for joint pain and inflamed tissue. You can visit CBDclinic.co for more information on why these products work. Clients who have used them here in the office are very happy with the results. You can purchase samples here and I am happy to place an order for your home use.
I am trained in providing Aromatouch Technique. This is a gentle 40 minute treatment that utilizes 8 essential oils and proprietary oil blends in a sequence, applied to the back and soles of the feet. The oils and blends in this technique were chosen to specifically counteract inflammation, boost immunity, and restore balance. This is a great adjunct to a 30 or 60 minute massage or reflexology treatment. Essential oils can take up to 4 hours to fully absorb, so showering directly post treatment is not recommended. You will enjoy the aromatic benefits of lavender, wild orange, clove, peppermint and others all day. If you have allergies or skin sensitivities this may not be the best treatment for you.
Brochures are now available. If you're local you can walk by the studio at 304 Columbus and take from the box out in front. Look for the splash of bright green with the deep blue lotus on the front!
Immediate benefits such as temporary increase in local circulation which leads to oxygenation and nourishment of tight and painful tissues, and decrease in pain are some powerful physical benefits.
The release of endorphins and increase of dopamine and serotonin makes us feel emotionally calm and mentally relaxed. Massage has also been shown to stimulate the production of cells that bolster immunity. This makes it an ideal, natural way to combat stress and support your immune system.
**Please take note that masssage isn't recommended if you are already fighting a flu or cold. Your body needs rest and supportive nutrition to fight viruses such as flu and the common cold. When we are flu-ish it may seem like getting a massage is a good idea because of the achy muscles that accompany it. Getting a massage after you are already infected may make you feel worse and put others at the clinic at risk. This is because your body is trying to manage and contain pathogens. Massage directly engages your lymphatic system, which is the main system for fighting pathogens such as flu virus.
Massage therapy takes it's place among excercise, healthy eating and meditation to maintain physical and mental health and ease the pressures of the daily grind.
There are different approaches to a massage session. These depend on your goals, both long-term and immediate, your lifestyle and your current state of health. I will work with you to determine the best course of your therapy with me.
