Designed for the therapeutic needs of the body, using a myriad of techniques (fascial stretching, trigger point therapy, etc.) to bring relief to a stressed and overworked body. Focusing on the deeper layers of muscle tissue and working to release chronic patterns of tension in the body through slow strokes and deep pressure on the contracted areas. The purpose is to “unstick” the fibers of the muscle while releasing deeply held patterns of tension and soothing the muscle. It is altogether corrective, therapeutic and relaxing.
Are you or someone you know expecting? Prenatal massage is tremendously beneficial for both mom and baby through every step of pregnancy. Let the soothing strokes calm frazzled nerves, as well as many of those “wonderful” symptoms such as irritability, swelling, nausea, fatigue and sciatic pain. This is also a great introduction to massage for the new arrival!
What is LOKTE™ Method, you ask? It is highly effective Connective Tissue Release and systematic approach to deep myofascial stretching. This modality can improve range of motion while relieving the source of pain (often times in one appointment). This is a great start to your massage session or can serve as a standalone session. Great for plantar fasciitis, back pain, carpal tunnel, sciatica, shin splints, migraines and more! Currently I am one of only two Level 2 LM Therapists in the state of Michigan, with Level 3 coming in November and athlete workshops are now available! You will learn several techniques that you can immediately incorporate into your pre and post workout athletic routine.
Fascial Stretch Therapy (or FST) is a very different approach to manual therapy that focuses on the connective tissue system rather than isolated muscle treatment (or static stretching). Working from the joint capsules to get a deeper stretch, FST can help to reduce or eliminate tight muscles, stiff joints, pain and improves flexibility, muscle activation and relaxation. Consider a Lokte Method and FST session together for the ultimate in pain relief.
LifeStretch is designed to help gain flexibility in the body, mind and spirit, resulting in not only becoming more functionally mobile, but also more capable in dealing with the physical and mental demands of life. The reward is pain free movement with ease and the beautiful experience of physical, mental and emotional well-being.
Yoga Tune Up®
Yoga Tune Up® is a blend of yoga and corrective exercise principles combined with various stretching modalities designed to highlight joint mobility and stability. The results are immediate relief from chronic tension, increased power through a greater range of movement, increased strength and healthy, supple joints. This is not your typical yoga class! Give it a try in one of our weekly mobility classes or monthly workshops.
The Roll Model® Method
The Roll Model® Method is a self-care fitness format that incorporates various sized therapy balls for soft tissue conditioning self-massage to relieve pain, correct postural imbalances and down regulate the nervous system. Therapy balls will often be incorporated into a Yoga Tune Up® class but will also be offered as a standalone class and workshop.
Our feet are miniature versions and road maps to the rest of the body. Reflexology uses pressure points on hands, ears, or in this case, feet, that “reflex” to specific areas and organs. By manipulating certain reflexes, a parasympathetic nervous system response is activated, resulting in stress reduction in the body. This enables blockages to be released by physiological changes. With stress reduced and circulation enhanced, the body’s ability to heal and stay in balance is encouraged.
Take care of yourself year round!
