Pain is your first indication that something needs to be addressed!!! Knots/ adhesions, trigger points, pinched nerves, and decrease in ROM can cause numbness and tingling or muscle debilitation. This treatment is 100% customized to provide the best possible outcome in your treatment time.
Fascia is a thin membrane or sheet of tissue which surrounds, covers and connects all tissues and organs of the body- muscles, bones, nerves, blood vessels, and internal organs- everything. It is like a netting of tightly woven connective-tissue which ‘holds everything together’ and allows independent movement between tissue layers. It is not highly elastic like muscle tissue.
Fascia becomes tight and restrictive due to poor posture, scoliosis, trauma, repetitive strain, chronic inflammation and surgical scars. Once an area of fascia becomes tight and short with adhesion formation the restrictions spread to other areas of the body creating further mechanical imbalances. Fascial restrictions range form microscopic adhesions at the cellular level to macroscopic adhesions forming overt scar tissue. In all cases there is movement restriction at the tissue level which can be detected with skilled palpation.
Skilled Palpation Demanded
These restrictions are often very subtle, they can be difficult to detect, and therefore demand a highly developed sense of touch to locate and interpret them. Equally subtle are some of the manual treatment techniques which stretch and release these adhesions. Again, a high level of manual skill is required to detect and treat fascial restrictions. The manual techniques are quite unlike those used for treating muscles and joints; rather, the adhesion-releasing techniques are performed very slowly and gently over relatively long periods of time. The results, though, are usually immediately apparent and often dramatic. Significant changes in both pain levels and improvements in mobility are often immediate and long-lasting.
NOTE: Working through fascia restrictions must be done with patience to find the root of the issue. My technique is adjusted differently to each client, therefore the pressure is adjusted allowing a deep therapeutic touch. This is the recommended treatment for any discomfort or Pain.

Starting with your first treatment using three steps: I-identify, T-reat, R-resolve
Thai massage (Movement education) is more energizing and rigorous than most other forms of massage therapy. It's also called Thai Yoga massage, because I use my hands, knees, legs, and feet to move you into a series of yoga-like postures and stretches. My clients say Thai massage is like doing yoga without doing any of the work. No oil is applied, so you are fully dressed during the session. A single Thai massage session will help you release stress and relieve pain, and help you function more effectively.
Perfect before chiropractic treatment.
Thai Bodywork- Bodywork is a form of massage and energy work. It uses conscious touch, stretches, range of motion, and other techniques, done more gently, to affect the whole energy and nervous system to relieve pain and restore balance. Great for improved movement, energy boosts, and circulation
Unlike a Swedish massage, oil isn't used and your muscles typically aren't kneaded. Instead, the practitioner will use their hands, thumbs, elbows, and knees to stretch, pull, and rock different parts of your body. They may even sit on you to stretch you into certain positions.
Benefits of Bodywork:
Increases circulation throughout the body with gentle elongating force on muscles & connective tissues along with improving lymphatic drainage through manual techniques so you shouldn't feel any discomfort during treatment session!
