Deep Tissue Massage is a form of bodywork that aims to relieve tension in the deeper layers of tissue in the body. Deep Tissue Massage is a highly effective method for releasing chronic stress areas due to misalignment, repetitive motions, and past lingering injuries. A common misconception is that deep tissue always means deep pressure. In reality, it means slowly and comfortably accessing the deepest layers of tissue to release these chronic issues in the most safe and comfortable way possible.
Jennifer is the creator of the S.T.A.R. technique, (Somatic Touch Autonomic Reset). This massage modality is a total immersion in relaxation. Warm table, heated lotions, aromatherapy, and soothing music are coupled with a blissful massage. The pressure is moderate with long, slow strokes and is never fast or choppy. We are not working out problems, but allowing the body to reset and begin to heal itself. Both client and therapist remain silent during the massage, enabling total relaxation. There is a focus on the breath as well as grounding, with extra time spent on aching and overworked feet. Acupressure and energy work are blended seamlessly into the massage, with no differentiation or disruption, allowing a more tranquil flow. Scalp and head massage finish the session, allowing a sense of pure calm and peace. The goal of this modality is to reset the autonomic nervous system back to ‘rest and digest mode”. It is a wonderful healing tool for those who have suffered trauma, are battling illness or auto-immune disease, are going through difficult times emotionally or are just feeling anxious or stuck

The best of both worlds. Enjoy a 60 minute customized therapeutic massage and end with 30 minutes of Reiki.
Reiki is a Japanese form of energy work that cleanses and balances the energy system in the body. As a result, the body's natural self-healing mechanisms strengthen, helping to establish optimum health. During a session, I work directly with your energy field to remove blockages, detoxify your system, and restore your vital life force energy. Reiki utilizes a gentle laying on of hands to conduct the necessary energy force between us. The benefits of Reiki range from the release of habitual mental/emotional stress to alleviating chronic pain.
