Janeen Allies, LMT - Went to the Healing Arts Center and graduated in 2008 with over 600 hours of instruction in Anatomy, Physiology, Business, and Therapeutic Massage & Bodywork.
Modalities include: Swedish, Myofascial Release & Deep Tissue Massage. I enjoy helping people through massage and bodywork focusing mainly on Swedish and Myofascial work. I also utilized essential oils and CBD oil into my massage sessions.
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 (succession 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.
Myofascial Release - Myofascial 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.
ESSENTIAL OIL PROTOCOL: this massage utilizes several essential oils on the back/spine and feet to help increase relaxation and pain relief. The Protocol that will be used depends on what you want to achieve and will be discussed before we begin.

“My intention is to create a custom therapeutic massage that best fits your needs. I am passionate about helping you relieve physical, mental, and emotional pain and stress from your body and improving your quality of life. I believe that massage therapy and breathwork can facilitate healing on all levels; body, mind, and spirit.”
Deep Touch Massage: Type of massage therapy that focuses on releasing deeper layers of muscles and connective tissue. Some of the same techniques are used as classic massage therapy, but the pace is slower and the pressure is deeper and concentrated on areas of tension and pain.
Sports Massage: Sports Massage is geared towards athletes of all kinds from professionals, to joggers, to weight-lifters. One of the main benefits of sports massage is the ability to target muscle-tendon junctions. Sports Massage also incorporates movement and stretching in the massage.
MyoFascial Release: Type of massage that focuses on the connective tissue known as Fascia. It involves applying gentle, firm pressure into the Fascial connective tissue to eliminate pain and restore motion.
Hot Stone Massage: Hot Stone Massage is a style of massage that uses heated, flat stones to massage the body. The heated stones relax muscle and connective tissue and stimulate the circulatory and lymphatic systems, which is detoxifying and therapeutic. Hot Stone Massage can be beneficial for those with pain because the heat allows the therapist to penetrate deeper layers of muscle and connective tissues.
Cold Stone Massage: Cold Stone Massage is very similar to a Hot Stone Massage, except the stones are chilled. This may not sound appealing, but the stones feel refreshing on warmed skin and have a beneficial effect on the body. Alternating hot with cold, stimulates the circulatory and lymphatic systems, detoxes the body, and helps to relive pain and has an invigorating effect.
Prenatal or Pregnancy Massage: Prenatal or Pregnancy Massage is similar to regular massage. It aims to relax tense muscles, ease sore spots, improve circulation and mobility, and improve your mood; but Prenatal Massage is customized to the needs of the pregnant women and their changing bodies. I use a Pregnancy Body Positioning Cushion, which helps maintain complete muscular-skeletal alignment for pregnant women while providing exceptional comfort so that they can lie face-down during their massage as well.
Oncology Massage: Oncology Massage is the modification of existing massage therapy techniques in order to safely work with complications of cancer and cancer treatments.
Reiki: A Reiki session can help ease tension and stress and support the body to facilitate healing on all levels-physical, mental, and emotional. Reiki is an ancient Japanese healing art that promotes healing. The word Reiki comes from the Japanese word Rei, which means Universal Life Force and Ki which means Energy. Reiki is the life force energy that flows through every living being. If you’re interested in becoming a Reiki Practitioner, please call for Reiki Attunement schedules and pricing.
Breathwork Therapy: Breathwork is a specific body-mind therapy that utilizes conscious, connected breathing (no pause between the inhale and exhale). Breathworkas a therapeutic tool has the capacity to affect the physical, mental, and emotional aspects of our bodies. By breathing an open, healthy, connected breath our bodies naturally begin to release surface stress and physical tension. Then, as our bodies and breath become more relaxed, we find that this type of breathing has the capacity to release old emotional wounds and mental patterns.
