Relaxation Massage

A relaxation massage is for the client who wants to drift off into a state of tranquility that may or may not include drooling all over the face cradle!  This massage is intended to help the client activate the part of the nervous system responsible for rest and relaxation, so they can reset and rejuvenate. Utilizing popular Swedish massage techniques, the therapist incorporates elements of other massage styles as necessary.

Deep Tissue Massage

Deep tissue (DT) massage traditionally works with the body's connective tissue, known as fascia.  Zoë's brand of DT combines appropriately deep pressure, detailed knowledge of anatomical structure, and long slow intentional strokes in order to relieve pain, to improve range of motion, and to relax muscles.  Integrating trigger point therapy, athletic massage techniques, cold stone therapy, and relaxing Swedish strokes allows the client to receive the most possible benefit from their treatment.

Cranial Sacral Therapy

Cranial Sacral Therapy (CST) is a gentle massage modality that addresses the brain, the spinal cord and the meninges that cover them, the cerebrospinal fluid (CSF), the mechanisms that create and reabsorb CSF, as well as the bones of the cranium, spinal column, and sacrum.

Unfortunately, the stresses and strains of daily life can cause body tissues to tighten and distort the cranial sacral system.  This can cause tension to form around the brain and spinal cord which results in restrictions.  Restrictions within the cranial sacral system interfere with the healthy performance of the central nervous system (CNS), and possibly every other system it interacts with.

The therapist uses their hands to assess the cranial sacral system by gently contacting and sensing various locations of the body to examine the ease of motion and rhythm of the cerebrospinal fluid pulsing through the CNS.  The therapist then utilizes gentle techniques to release restrictions in any tissues affecting the cranial sacral system.

 

Cranial Sacral Therapy is ideal for:

…clients with tightness in the jaw from teeth clenching or grinding

…individuals diagnosed with TMJD

…those who experience headaches, migraines, or cluster headaches

…clients who have neck or back pain that other massage styles have not brought relief to

…those who have injured or fallen on their tailbone

…individuals seeking a non-invasive way to achieve hormonal balance

…clients with vertigo

…individuals who have suffered from a concussion over one year ago

Lymphatic Drainage Massage 

Lymphatic drainage massage (LDM)  is a very gentle and relaxing form of massage, requiring only between 5 grams and 8 ounces of pressure to be most effective.

• to distribute immune cells throughout the body to maintain health and fight disease

•to repair injured tissues


LDM is ideal for

…clients who are pre- or post-surgery

…the treatment of minor soft tissue injuries such as sprains

…clients with frequent colds or allergies

Reiki

The word Reiki comes from the Japanese words Rei which means “universal life” and Ki which means “energy”.  Reiki is another word for the life energy that flows through all things.  Although often referred to as "healers", Reiki and energy practitioners do not heal their clients.  They are conduits for and facilitators of healing and balancing energy.  The energy flows through the practitioner, not from the practitioner, and the client always receives exactly what is needed.  Reiki always addresses discomfort at the root level of cause. 

A Reiki session with Zoë might include elements of guided meditation, healing affirmations, massage strokes, a basalt stone spinal layout, and chakra balancing techniques using hand carved marble stones.
