Treatment Massage 

TREATMENT MASSAGE
60 min $80  90 min $120

Katherine has been practicing massage since 2010, over the years she's learned a variety of techniques to create a deep and effective massage for her clients. The specialized modalities she includes in her practice are Somassage®, Myofascial Release, Trigger Point Therapy and Cupping Therapy. To learn more about these modalities please read the descriptions below:

Somassage® intentionally moves the fascia in a specific direction to combat the effects gravitation has had on the body. Its focus is to provide structural support, release connective tissue, address specific injuries, and bring balance back into the body. 

Myofascial Release stretches restricted fascia, which is a connective tissue that weaves itself between muscles, bones and organs. Unwinding the fascia in one area of the body allows other musculoskeletal areas and body organs to release tension. This release eliminates pain, increases range of motion and brings a structural balance back to the body. 

 

Trigger Point Therapy releases areas of hypersensitivity in muscles, ligaments, tendons and fascia. Trigger points are tiny contracted knots that develop in a muscle when it is injured or overworked and usually refers pain to another site in the body. If trigger points are the cause of the pain this therapy can get rid of aching pain, numbness, tingling, burning and other myofascial symptoms. 

Cupping Therapy draws up stagnant blood and sticky fluids from the applied area. This technique increases oxygen and circulation allowing for faster recovery and release of pain.
