Today people are increasingly looking beyond conventional medicine to find relief from pain, whether chronic or acute in nature or seeking overall well being. Alternative health practices, such as massage are a holistic approach to creating and nourishing a healthy physical body & clear mind, without negative side effects.
At Healing Rhythms Therapeutic Massage my goal is to provide skilled massage services individualized for each persons needs, in an environment that is professional & compassionate offering soft tissue therapies & encouraging self wellness to promote a healthy life.
I am a Wisconsin licensed massage therapist graduating from East-West Healing Arts Institute in Madison, WI. My education is fully integrated Eastern and Western massage, with the main focus of Tui Na (Chinese Medical Massage). I use a variety of modalities of Asian bodywork which can include acupressure points, cupping therapy, gua sha and IASTM (Instrument assisted soft tissue mobilization). Continuing education classes are focused on neuromuscular therapy from Precision Neuromuscular Therapy (P.N.M.T.) founded by Douglas Nelson, MT in Champaign, IL.
Tui Na Massage is Chinese Medical massage, literally translated in "push & pull" of the soft tissue. It uses a variety of different techniques to treat specific issues and can include modalites of acupressure, cupping, and gua sha.
Deep Tissue Massage reaches deeper layers of muscles. It is used to break down knots and relieve pressure points throughout the body. This massage is beneficial for athletes, chronic issues and those who sit for long periods of time.
Swedish or relaxation massage is used to increase blood flow, decrease muscle toxins, improve flexibility & instill a sense of tranquility using lighter longer strokes. Specific concerns may still be addressed if desired.
