BodyTalk is a very simple and effective holistic therapy that allows the body's energy systems to be re-synchronised, helping to restore its ability to heal and fix itself. Within the massage session I am able to tune into your body's energetic field and work with specific  patterns, imbalances and miscommunications that surface. When all the parts and systems of the body communicate with each other, healing happens naturally. 

 

Reiki (Ray-Key) is a healing technique based on the principle that the therapist can channel energy into the client by means of touch and intention, to activate the natural healing processes of the client's body and restore physical and emotional well-being. Using Reiki within the massage session brings more ease to the mind and nervous system while creating a calm and serene environment.

***Every session with me is therapeutic and is in complete alignment with the ethical practices of the Virginia Board of Nursing and the National Certification Board for Massage and Bodywork.***

Sound healing  is the therapeutic application of sound frequencies to the body/mind of a person with the intention of bringing them into a state of harmony and health. We are literally a gathering of particles vibrating at various rates and emitting specific frequencies, which is why we get a "vibe" from people or situations. It's not just a saying, it's the truth! During the session I use singing bowls, tuning forks and vocal toning, to shift  your vibratory frequency to one which is in alignment with a healthy and joyous life.

Massage Cupping therapy is an ancient form of alternative medicine in which a therapist puts special cups (I use medical grade silicone cups) on your skin for a few minutes to create suction. This can help with pain and inflammation, increase blood flow and circulation, and as a type of deep-tissue massage. At times they leave marks on the body that fade away after a few days(this does not harm or damage the skin or tissues). What I've found through working with cups is that because we are so accustomed to being pushed in and down by gravity, when cups are applied that pull out and up it disrupts confused patterns and allows the tissues to reconfigure. Sometimes, this is just the opportunity that the body needs to come back to alignment and health.
