𖦹 Elderly Massage, Disabled, Special Needs
Love and healing touch is a basic human need to all of us. When mobility is limited or you are bed-bound, transitioning onto a massage table may not be feasable or feel safe. In this case, the massage can happen right on the bed, on an armchair or in a wheelchair. Together with you, I strive to create the most ergonomic place and position for you to receive your massage, so that you can feel at ease and enjoy it fully. Each session adjusts to you and your needs on that very day.
Colors of Soothing Touch for the Body and for the Soul
Intuitive Relaxation Massage
A portal into deep relaxation and connection. In consideration of your sharing and wishes before we begin with your massage, I let my hands guide me, ultimately following the energy that presents itself. Encapsuled in each movement a fusion of knowledge and intuition that seems to know what to do. Tension is given the opportunity to transform into lightness and flexibility.
A renewed-sense of self-connection can arise from within and clarity gained through feeling grounded back in your body. This massage offers to be a window into the space of no time where healing and regeneration happens deep inside. From beta to alpha, from fight-flight freeze to beingness and from mind chatter to embodiment.
Therapeutic essential oils can be incorporated.
Integrated Bowen Massage
A massage that seamlessly integrates ‘Bowen Moves’ (the foundational rolling movements over fascia, muscle and tendons of Bowen Therapy) with Restorative Relaxation Massage. As such it blends together relaxing intuitive massage strokes and specific sequences of intentional neuromuscular rolling movements. ‘Bowen Moves’ gently open up the body by sending signals to the brain to relax muscular holding patterns and areas of tightness through shifting the nervous system out of a stress-response into a balanced state. Now, relaxation can be experienced at a deeper level, as areas of constriction, such as tightness in the shoulder or hamstrings, or tension causing pain in the back are released.
You can think of Integrated Bowen Massage as a relaxing, holistic and effective way of balancing the body via the nervous system and fascial web that allows for restrictions to ease and emotions and thoughts to shift. After you get up from the table and walk around a bit, you may find that you feel lighter, move with more ease and that areas of tension and pain have improved or resolved. As your body continues 'to work' with the information and gentle impulses offered during the massage in the days following, you can support this process by drinking enough water, moving gently and ideally taking a few days off from strenuous activities or other therapies.
Foot & Leg Massage
A harmonious blend of a deeply restorative foot massage and the awakening of energy pathways through the gentle stimulation of reflex points on the feet. Profound relaxation of the whole body and mind can be experienced through this massage. Feeling this connection with our feet can be a wonderful grounding experience bringing us back in the body. You may not only feel muscle and overall body tension melt away during a foot reflexology massage, but also witness the tension around your organs 'drop' catapulting you into a state of deep beingness.
Receiving a foot reflexology massage can help the body to let go of tension and stress, improve circulation by increasing oxygen and nutrition to the cells, improve nerve and body supply, restore balance physically, mentally, and emotionally. This massage can be experienced in a comfortable chair or laying down on a massage table.
A calming and purifying foot bath preceding the massage (contained within it a blend of natural helpers such as magnesium, essential oils, himalayan salt and baking soda) sets the stage for a restorative and attuned experience.
NOTE: Plantar Fasciatis is an inflammation of the fascia along the bottom of the foot that connects to the heel bone and toes and is a common issue for many people. In this case, a combination of Bowen 'Moves', Myofascial Relase and Massage can be combined and are often very helpful in alleviating the pain and initiating the healing process.
Lomi Lomi Massage
Lomi Lomi massage has its roots in the Polynesian Islands where it developed as an indigenous practice over hundreds of years. The image that comes to mind is that of wave. In fact, the hallmark of a Lomi Lomi massage are strokes done with the hands and forearms. And these sweeping strokes may feel, much like long, rolling waves traveling along the body - waves that without beginning or end. Waves that are gently washing over you and that may remind you of how home must feel like.
Weaved deeply into this ancient practice is the wisdom of Polynesian natives and their connection to spirit. And so what *flows* into the healing art of a Lomi Lomi massage is the consciousness for sacred connection, the interconnectivity of life and the maturity of the practitioner.
SomaSense Massage harnesses the power of SLOW to bypass the mind and access our living body through slow and intentful touch and movements. Anything that we do slowly wakes up our brain to a greater depth of experience. This massage can create a deep and refreshing new level of connection with one's body via the activation of our felt sense through feeling sensations in the body.
Through slow strokes and touch our body becomes 'feelable' to us (again). Some describe this as feeling grounded back in the body and coming home to oneself.
Slow strokes and touch are weaved together with slightly faster strokes and touch mimicking the nature of nature - the ebb and flow of life, the waves of life on earth, expansion and contraction, the always swinging pendulum.

Creating Sustainable Change
Sometimes we sense that we just need one massage to help get us move over the precipice into a more balanced state of body and mind. Other times, we recognize the power of consistency to experience more sustained change. Please let me know, if you are thinking about setting up regular appointments - session rates will be lower.
