Simone’s massage treatments are often a combination of therapeutic and relaxation massage. A relaxation massage is focused on wellness, and restoring balance in the body. It can be felt as meditative, nurturing and deeply restorative. A therapeutic massage is focused around specific goals to either rehabilitate, eliminate pain, decrease limitations, and/or increase mobility. Simone also provides pregnancy massage, deep tissue massage as well as hot stones massage treatments. During any treatment, essential oils are often used to help you deepen your experience. Massage Therapy can be used by itself or in combination with Reiki and Body Mind Therapy.
What is Massage Therapy?
Massage therapy is the assessment and manipulation of the soft tissues of the body, with the purpose of restoring health, free from pain and dysfunction. Massage therapy treatments optimize health and well being by acting on the muscular, nervous, lymphatic and circulatory systems of the body. Massage consists of hands-on treatment including kneading, pressure, manipulation of muscles, myofascial release and mobilization of joints.
Massage is highly beneficial in treating a variety of musculoskeletal disorders such as:
- tension headaches
- muscle spasms, strains and sprains
- chronic pain due to postural changes and dysfunction
- back pain including SI pain, facet joint irritation, herniated discs
- carpal tunnel syndrome, tennis elbow, rotator cuff injury, sciatica
- discomfort and pain due to pregnancy
