SWEDISH / ESALEN MASSAGE

 

Swedish Massage is the most common type of massage found in the United States. It is used to increase circulation of the blood and lymph. It relaxes the muscle and nervous systems. Some of the strokes used are petrissage (kneading), effleurage (gliding), friction (creates heat) and tapotment (percussive). Esalen massage is known for its long flowing strokes. Linda also adds Precision Kinematics (passive movement)  and Myofascial Release to her sessions. The combination of these techniques offers a relaxing, loosening and elongating effect on the body. Pressure is applied to your comfort level. Genitals and women's breasts are always draped.

PRENATAL MASSAGE

 

Expectant mothers go through many changes, physical , psychological, and emotional. Massage influences these changes in a positive way. Linda offers pregnancy massage in prone position (face down) with a special pregnancy cushion. She understands that it is not a one size fits all world, so she has worked with a local seamstress to make custom cushions for a better fit. No matter what the size of the expecting mother, her comfort and the baby's safety is the priority. If prone is not tolerated, Linda is well versed in doing the massage with mom on her side. If you have not been working with Linda already it is suggested that you wait until the second trimester for an appointment.
