Massage

The practice of the profession of therapeutic massage therapy is defined as engaging in applying a scientific system of activity to the muscular structure of the human body for the purpose of improving muscle tone and circulation.

 

Nicole combines her knowledge of human anatomy, energy/body work, Ayurveda, and Traditional Chinese Medicine into each session. Additionally, all mediums used for massage are made by Nicole with organic ingredients. 

Massage therapy is a wonderful treatment for numerous soft-tissue pain and injury problems. Common conditions treated, but not limited to:

On your first visit, an assessment is performed before a treatment plan is given.The treatment plan gives the client an outline of what will be addressed and approximately how many visits are suggested [revisions may need to be done along the way]. We get started on that plan in the initial session.
 

The assessment:

  • Identifies which tissues are most likely involved

  • Includes the choice of the most appropriate treatment.

  • Helps determine progress towards treatment goals

Swedish and deep tissue massage address stress and tension/knots that have been experienced for some time. Swedish massage is known for its continuous movements that flow together, while deep tissue is less about flow and more specifically about targeting a specific area/knot. 

Swedish and deep tissue massage address stress and tension/knots that have been experienced for some time. Swedish massage is known for its continuous movements that flow together, while deep tissue is less about flow and more specifically about targeting a specific area/knot. Nicole often will combine both modalities depending on your goals. Swedish massage is recommended regularly for stress and muscle tension relief. Swedish massage is a great tool to develop a customized plan for you going forward as it helps distinguish the state of the soft tissue.

What to Wear

In General

  • Wear comfortable clothing that is easy to remove.

  • Put hair up so the neck is accessible for work; this also limits oil getting into the hair.

  • Remove all jewelry that would get in the way of treatment [e.g., bracelets, watches, necklaces, big earrings].

Swedish Massage

  • You are covered with a sheet [draped] and only the part of the body being worked on is exposed.

  • Undress to your comfort level [bras removed]

  • For an upper or lower body only massage, you may just remove clothes from that area.
