Provides medical massage therapy, focused on restructuring the body toward creating pain relief, injury
rehabilitation, and better body alignment.
Have you been in a motor vehicle accident, had a work injury, sports injury or are aching due to old age? Treatment massage is right for you.
Focuses of the Medial and Lateral Pterygoid muscles, along with the Temporalis, Masseter and Supra-Hyoid muscles within the mouth.
Benefits help with TMJD, migraines, jaw clicking, a great deal of dental work, whiplash and so much more.
The massage starts with warming up the neck muscles anterior and posterior, chest, shoulders, scalp
and facial muscles; Then work on the Pterygoid muscles, Massester, Temporalis, and Hyoid muscles. Finishing, by working on the neck and shoulders.
This type of massage is for burn survivors who have been burned and have damaged tissue to the skin. This massage is good for breaking up scar tissue, helping alleviate pain, increasing flexibility and moisture to the skin, as well as helps with increase circulation.
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. 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.
Incorporates plastic, glass, or silicone cups to create suction. Once the suction has occurred, the cups can be gently moved across the skin (often referred to as "gliding cupping). The suction in the cups causes the skin and superficial muscle layer to be lightly drawn into the cup. Cupping is much like the inverse of massage - rather than applying pressure to muscles, it uses gentle pressure to pull them upward. For most patients, this is a particularly relaxing and relieving sensation.
Massage cupping is combined with a Deep tissue massage to first break up stagnate tissue with the use of the cups and then going in with hands and forearms. (Caution: that massage cupping leaves markings that can last up to 2 weeks.)
Swedish Massage is a very relaxing and therapeutic style of bodywork. It combines oils with an array of strokes such as rolling, kneading, and percussion to help the body improve its 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.
Sports Massage is a type of 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; With use of either quick movements or slow relaxed stretches, you will be clothed and we will be doing an active massage meaning lots of assisted stretches.
Is your son or daughter's back aching from another school year due to a heavy backpack, or are they just getting back to normal or have currently had a sports injury?
I can help them with some of that relief, in a treatment massage just for kids. We all need a massage whether young or old; the massage is reduced to 45 minutes for help with the limited attention span children have.
Children ages 10 and under must have the parent present in the room during the massage and all children under the age of 18 must have a signed consent form from a parent. Please see, "Helpful Forms" page for the minor constent form.
Chair massage is a popular way of relieving stress and releasing tension right in your home or 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, making it convenient enough to fit into your busy schedule.
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. I also incorporate healing crystals in my practice to help bring the healing energy further into the body.
In an Ayurvedic Consultation you will learn about your unique body type and ways to nurture your body into balance. Upon arrival you will explain your habits of daily routine, diet and health history. From there I will asked a series of questions to further understand the imbalance occurring in your body and finish with: pulse, tongue, nail, and skin assessment.
After my assessment, I will guide you in an Ayurvedic way of giving you simple suggestions to help enhance your current lifestyle and daily routines. I will follow up with emails and any other questions you may have.

Udavartana translates to "Dry Herbal Scrub." Udavartana is an invigorating treatment done with cleansing herbs.
The treatment differs per client's bodytype with the combination of herbs along with whether or not oil will be included in the treatment. Once the bodytype is determined we will proceed with a warm oil massage, and then an herbal scrub massage with the strokes either going up or down, depending on the imbalance to the client.

Is a vigorous massage completed with 2 bolices. The bolices are filled with either sand, rice, and or fresh herbs, and then placed in heated medicated oil or into heated milk depending on your dosha (body type). After an abyangha, then the heated bolices will be alternated and lightly pounded throughout your body; feeling the heat of the bolice and the coolness of either the milk or oil makes your muscles melt away any type of stress they may be holding on to. Once finished, heated towels will help remove any excess milk, or oil. This treatment is great to help increase circulation, paralysis, removing toxins, strengthening the back and spine, reducing stiffness and inflamation in muscles and the joints.

Shirodhara is a continuous flow of warm oil onto the third eye flowing into the hair. This treatment is an instant nervine and is great for people suffering from insomnia and other mental conditions. After receiving an abyangha and currently at a state of relaxation, lets go further and indulge in a shirodhara feeling the warm oil flow slowly onto the forhead and melt away throughout your hair.

Private Yoga In Home Session, I will come to your house for a private one on one yoga session to help give you the tools you need to start the wonderful practice of yoga. (private session costs may differ based on the distance of your home)
Join me at Village Yoga 153 Port Rd Kennebunk, Maine Starting November 1st, 2018 on Thursday evenings 5pm-6:15pm for my yoga class "Hatha with a Hint of Yin."
This class will encompass a wide array of yoga techniques. We will begin the class with pranayama, a meditative breathing. Then we will transition into Yang yoga, incorporating sun salutations to help warm up the body as well as asanas or poses to keep the body in motion. I will also be sneaking in some Yin yoga to give you a taste of having the body stretch a little deeper. Yin yoga is a deeper form of yoga where you hold a pose anywhere from 3-15 minutes; in this class we may hold a pose for a maximum of 5 minutes. The knowledge behind holding a pose for that long is known to help work the deeper muscles, and also works the ligaments, and connective tissues; by doing this, you work the joints and bones giving them more attention. You will also help your body steer clear of injuries, increase range of motion, bettering your bone growth, and helping your body reduce pain; combining all three practices will leave you feeling more grounded and balanced.
