Integrative Massage - which simply means that I use a variety of massage techniques throughout the massage.  Switching to each technique as needed while working on the client.

Swedish Massage - is a system based in the concepts of anatomy and physiology and employs the traditional manipulative techniques of effleurage (successsion of strokes applied by gliding the hand over the body), petrissage (lifts, squeezes & pressing of tissues), vibration (continuous trembling or shaking movement delivered by the practioner or an electrical apparatus), friction (massage strokes designed to manipulate soft tissue so that one layer is moved over or against another) and tapotement (includes tapping, slapping, hacking, cupping, and beating).  Swedish Massage employs movements that can be slow & gentle, vigorous or bracing, according to the results the practioner wishes to achieve.

Lomi Lomi - is intuitive bodywork using the forearms, hands, breath, and range of movement.  The practioner learns to listen attentively to the client's body.  The sessions are guided by the client, not by the agenda of the practioner.  Lomi can change the way you feel, move, think and breathe.

Myofascial Release - Myofascia is a specific type of deep fascia that is bound to muscle tissue.  It is also the tendons and ligaments that bind the muscle and bone.  Broadly defined myofascial massage is any type of bodywork that focuses on the myofascial unit, including muscle, connective tissue, and the neuromuscular junction.  Myofascial massage can also include simple self-care suggestions for stretching, self-massage, the use of cold packs and heat and relaxation to improve the effects of massage.
