Prof Athletic Massage Therapy
Professional Athletic Sports Massage is a massage designed for highly active people who engage in athletics. Engaging in sports is harsh on the body and can often lead to injuries in both the short and long term. Sports Massage enhances performance and prolongs a sports career by helping to prevent injury, reduce pains and swelling in the body, relax the mind, increase flexibility, and dramatically improve recovery rates. Sports Massage is also highly effective in aiding the rapid recovery of an athlete from an injury by encouraging greater kinesthetic awareness and in turn promoting the body's natural immune function. I am also available to be present with a table and/or chair at a local sports event especially 5k, 10k, Mud Runs, etc.

Deep Tissue Massage
Deep Tissue Massage, a 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. 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. Keep in mind that soreness is pretty common after the treatment, and that plenty of water should be ingested to aid with the flushing and removal of toxins that will have been released from the deep tissue during the session.

Manual Ligament Therapy
Manual Ligament Therapy, LMT,
Manual Ligament Therapy (MLT) is a new and original technique created by Arik Gohl. Arik discovered a way to manipulate ligaments that allows our muscles to relax and almost completely “let go” of the tension held within.
What the research says: Research has revealed that ligaments feed the brain with more proprioceptive information about joints than muscles and tendons. We have learned that ligaments are a significant source of pain, especially in cases of chronic pain. Until injured ligaments can heal from their underlying dysfunction, muscles will remain in a tense and guarded state.
MLT stimulates cells in our ligaments called mechanoreceptors. By gently stimulating these cells, we are able to manipulate their sensory output to the muscles, tendons and fascia. The end result is a dramatic reduction in tension.
MLT is so gentle it can be used even in the most acute cases. You should experience no pain whatsoever with this technique

Myofascial Cupping is an ancient therapy, first documented over 5,000 years ago, clearly Olympic and professional athletes have gotten the message that "what’s old is still new!" Though cups and techniques have changed over time, today’s cups still create a suction and vacuum that allows for a decompression effect to take place under the skin. I am trained with RockTape Silicon Myofascial cups. I use them during massage session to assist with release of muscle tightness and can use in conjunction with the RockTape Kinesiology Tape.
Mobility is essential without pain or discomfort. Make an appointment TODAY!
Lymphatic Drainage Therapy aims to gently and rhythmically move the lymph through the body, especially swollen areas of the body, relieving pressure and enhancing the functioning of the immune system. As both a preventative and remedial technique, LD can be used for a wide range of purposes including faster recovery from injury, reduction of swelling and discomfort from pregnancy, and strengthened resistance to illness. The client and therapist work together during the LD with slow, gentle pressure, and rhythmatic movement stimulating lymph vessel contraction to reduce edema.
The sessions will be in a series of approximately four to five days continuing with each quarter of the body as needed. The series would be discussed during the initial intake between client and therapist. There will also be a request from the therapist for physician release if surgery was previously conducted.
Instrument Assisted Soft Tissue Mobilization or Simply IASTM is a new range of tool which enables clinicians to efficiently locate and treat individuals diagnosed with soft tissue dysfunction. The technique itself is said to be a modern evolution from Traditional Chinese Medicine called Gua Sha.However Gua Sha was not used to treat Musculoskeletal conditions but was traditionally applied along meridians to move the bad chi out through the skin.IASTM is a is a procedure that is rapidly growing in popularity due to its effectiveness and efficiency while remaining non-invasive,with its own indications and limitations.
IASTM is performed with ergonomically designed instruments that detect and treat fascial restrictions, encourage rapid localization and effectively treat areas exhibiting soft tissue fibrosis, chronic inflammation, or degeneration. As in any manual therapy treatment ,supplementation with exercises and additional modalities should be used in conjunction with IASTM.

Corporate Office Chair Massage
Corporate Office Chair Massage is a popular way of relieving stress and releasing tension right in your workplace. You receive your massage in a specialized ergonomic chair which I bring to your location. In addition to the usual health benefits of massage, another benefit of chair massage is that it is done over the clothing. With seated massage, you can avoid the discomfort and awkwardness that you may feel in disrobing for a traditional massage. Also, chair massage sessions are usually shorter than traditional massage, approx 8-10 min, making it convenient enough to fit into your employees busy schedule.
Employers, I am available to make appointments to your corporate office/ business for a personal “on-site” chair massage for your employees: 8-10 minutes massage can refresh and rejuvenate anyone. Prices will vary dependent on number of employees and travel distance within the Gainesville, FL area.
Happy Employees, Happy Business with Success!! Make an appointment TODAY!
Reflexology, a bodywork that focuses on applying pressure to the specific nerve zones in your feet and hands. Unlike other foot/hand massages that intend to mostly relieve tension in these areas, reflexology is a far more in-depth science that aims to harmonize your entire body. According to Ancient Chinese Medicine, every part of the human body is mapped into your feet and hands. Reflexology treatments have been found to be highly effective for conditions such as allergies, headaches, and depression.

Swedish Massage, a very relaxing and therapeutic bodywork. It combines oils or lotion with an array of strokes such as rolling, kneading, and percussion to help the body improve circulation. The benefits of this type of bodywork are wide-ranging and include relief from aches and pains, decreased stress levels in the body, enhanced mental clarity, improved appearance, and greater flexibility.
