Investing in massage is an

investment in your health.

THERAPEUTIC MASSAGE:

$35 - ½ hour         $60 - 1 hour        $85 - 1 ½ hours  

Massage is an excellent way to bring the body into total relaxation.  It helps to relieve everyday stress and strain which in turn increases the bodies ability to fight infection.  It helps the body eliminate toxins and assists your cells in nutritional uptake so that all of the organs and glands work more effectively.  It also decreases pain and increases range of motion so that your muscles and limbs work better. 

I am trained and certified in many different types of massage and may incorporate a variety of different techniques into each session as I feel the need for them.  No two massages will be exactly alike.

Massage is good for everyone from babies to active teenagers, expectant mothers to be to stressed out dads, athletes to arthritic older folks. 

MYOFASCIAL RELEASE: 

$35 - ½ hour         $60 - 1 hour        $85 - 1 ½ hours 

This safe, gentle and consistently very effective hands on technique is applied to the fascia system rather than the muscles.  Sustained pressure is applied into fascia restrictions to facilitate the elimination of pain and restore motion.  Fascia is the tough connective tissue which spreads throughout the body in a three dimensional web from your head to your feet without interruption.  Inflammation, trauma, surgeries or habitual poor posture over time can create a binding down of the fascia system which may exert up to 2000 pounds of pressure per square inch (that's like having a horse sit on you!).  The resulting pressure can cause multiple structural or other problems in the body involving the nerves, muscles, blood vessels and organs.  

In addition, the fascia contains "cellular memory" which may also need to be released in order for genuine healing to occur.  Fascia releases may enable the body to restructure itself and return to normal posture as well as allowing you to become more balanced as a whole person, physically, emotionally and spiritually. 

REFLEXOLOGY:     $60 per session

This is the science that deals with the principle that there are points in the feet, hands and ears which correspond to every gland, organ and part of the body.  Proper manipulation of these points will relax tension, improve nerve and blood supply, help the body to normalize (return to Homeostasis or balance).  This is a great option for those who have a lot of health problems and also for those who are more comfortable remaining fully clothed (except for shoes and socks of course!).   Treatment consists of approximately 45 minutes working on the feet followed by a short neck and shoulder massage to finish out the hour.

ESSENTIAL OIL RAINDROP THERAPY:    $60 per session

Oils were mankind's first medicine according to translations of ancient Egyptian hieroglyphics.  The ancient Greeks, Egyptians, Arabs, Chinese and traditional Indian medicine all used plant derived aromatic massage oils and salves to enhance their physical and mental health.  Legend has it that Cleopatra delighted in the scented oils she demanded nearly every day to keep he skin soft, muscles toned and spirits high.  Hippocrates, the father of Western medicine is quoted as saying "The way to health is to have an aromatic bath and massage every day".

Essential oils have either anti-bacterial, anti-viral anti-fungal aand/or immune stimulating properties that when applied to the body will aid in the bodies own healing defenses,  Raindrop Therapy is the application of at least 8 different oils to the spinal column and connective tissue, releasing viruses, inherited weakness and in some cases stored emotional trauma.  Hot, wet towels are then applied while you allow yourself to luxuriate in the sensation of total relaxation. 

Raindrop Therapy is known to assist clients suffering from many different conditions, including scoliosis.  Try it for its therapeutic value or just to pamper yourself.  It's incredible!  

TRIGGER POINT PAIN NEUTRALIZATION TECHNIQUE:   

Initial evaluation $75 (includes treatment)     Follow up $50 per session

A cutting edge method developed and taught by Dr. Stephen Kaufman, D.C. for combining several simple, standard neurological reflexes to immediately and dramatically change the functioning of a painful muscle.  In many cases we are able to eliminate chronic exquisitely painful areas and symptoms within seconds!

It is widely believed by many health practitioners that the vast majority of clients with chronic pain have painful muscular trigger points causing or exacerbating the pain.   This method for treatment of trigger points can give patients relief from chronic (or acute) headaches, musculoskeletal pain in the low back, neck, TMJ, upper trapezius, shoulder, knee, elbow or any area that has not responded to other forms of treatment in the past.  It has also proven to provide more rapid and longer lasting improvement.

As the only practioner trained in this type of therapy in Sturgeon Bay or the surrounding Door County, WI area, I am excited to be able to offer this incredible form of therapy to my clients.  

ON-SITE MASSAGE:  There is an additional travel/ set up fee of $15 for services within the Sturgeon Bay area.  $20  North or South of Sturgeon Bay (up to 20 miles) $25 (over 20 miles up to 40 miles).
