I am a Licensed Massage Therapist and have been actively practicing for the past 6 years. I studied Thai massage intensively in Chiang Mai, Thailand and Swedish/Deep Tissue here in Western Mass. I provide in-home massage in both Franklin and Hampshire county. Please see below for massage options:
Massage during pregnancy can be a great compliment to your prenatal health regimen. It not only soothes the muscles and helps to manage discomfort but it can also relax the mind. During a prenatal massage you are brought back into your body so that it can continue work with you throughout your pregnancy and during your birth.
This general “Swedish” style massage is meant to induce deep relaxation by using smooth gliding strokes. In this massage we work on the superficial layer to loosen tight muscles throughout the body and release tension in both the body and mind.
A firm pressure massage that works deep in the muscle tissue to help relieve chronic pain and increase blood flow in areas of tension. This massage is similar in style to the Relaxation massage with a firmer and more directed pressure (without causing pain ;)).
In Thai Massage we use both assisted yoga postures and traditional acupressure to release tension, increase flexibility and boost energy. We work with the meridian (energy) lines to bring both balance and rejuvenation. Note: This style of massage is done on a floor mat while fully clothed.
