Jen incorporates a variety of massage techniques into all her massages. Each therapist has their own "tool box" they use for each session and Jen tailors the massage to your specific needs. Jen specializes in Deep Tissue Massage.
Deep Tissue Massage — a technique used to address issues occurring in the deeper soft tissue and fascial layers of the body. Scarring, adhesions, and muscular spasm are all treated with the goal of restoring normal function and motion to the areas affected. Deep tissue does not necessarily mean deep pressure, but rather a concentrated, specific manner of working in the deeper layers of the body to allow for more permanent changes to occur. Because this technique is very specific, some discomfort may be experienced for up to 24-36 hours following a session. We recommend that the client drink plenty of water following a session to expedite the elimination of metabolic wastes from the body and therefore speed recovery.
Cupping therapy is an ancient form of alternative medicine in which a therapist puts special cups on your skin for a few minutes to create suction. People get it for many purposes, including helping with pain, inflammation, blood flow, relaxation and well-being, and as a type of deep-tissue massage. Cupping therapy might be trendy now, but it’s not new. It dates back to ancient Egyptian, Chinese, and Middle Eastern cultures. One of the oldest medical textbooks in the world, the Ebers Papyrus, describes how the ancient Egyptians used cupping therapy in 1,550 B.C.
During pregnancy, your body undergoes tremendous changes as your baby grows and your body prepares to bring your child into the world. Massage can alleviate the muscle tension and discomfort that comes along with your body's structural changes. The goals for prenatal massage are to minimize stress, promote relaxation, and prepare your muscles for childbirth. Prenatal massage specifically addresses a pregnant woman's needs and is highly beneficial. Prenatal massage is an enjoyable and beneficial way to positively influence your pregnancy.
