Massage Types

Thomasina will custom-create a tailored treatment based on your unique and individualized needs at the time of your treatment. You may also choose a specific modality from below. 

Myoskeletal Alignment Therapy

Using this holistic bodywork approach to pain relief, Thomasina will assess and treat imbalances and dysfunctional patterns in the musculoskeletal system. Treatments often include deep tissue work, joint mobilizations, muscle activation techniques, and nerve mobilizations. 

Deep Tissue / Fascial Release

After warming up the body area(s) to be treated, massage techniques such as myofascial release and trigger point therapy will target deeper muscle tissues to help relieve pain and stiffness, increase range of motion, or improve athletic performance.

Lymphatic Drainage

This massage can help move lymph fluid out of an area that is not draining well. The treatment may begin with appropriate myofascial release techniques to create space between tissues to promote better lymph drainage. 

Lomi Lomi

This deeply relaxing and meditative massage uses long, smooth-flowing strokes that mimic ocean waves lapping across your body. The therapist has oil on both arms, which glide from the client’s head to feet. This creates a profound experience that encourages the client to get out of the head and sink into the body and spirit.

Thai Yoga Massage

This treatment is performed on a mat on the floor, with the client wearing comfortable clothes. The therapist will use hands, feet, and other body parts to perform acupressure techniques to muscles along energy lines and to stretch the client into yoga postures.

Neck and Scalp

This deeply relaxing treatment aims to relieve stress and tension from the neck, shoulders, and scalp. It can also include a gentle face massage. The treatment may include Cranial Sacral Therapy or treatments for jaw pain and TMJ dysfunction.
