Christl customizes each therapeutic massage based on your individual needs. She uses a variety of light-touch, deep tissue, CranioSacral therapy, warm bamboo, acupressure, trigger point therapy and myofascial release to get results.
Descriptions of modalities used in Massage:
Warm bamboo/ deep tissue:
Broad deep pressure using warmed bamboo tools are to “roll out” deep tension in those stubborn areas. Less painful than a regular deep tissue massage.
This gentle yet highly therapeutic body work was created by Osteopathic physician John Upledger, M.D. For a full session, wear comfortable clothing. Very light pressure is applied to specific areas in the head down to the sacrum (low back) to achieve deep relaxation and balance to the body. Very helpful for chronic neck pain and headaches. It’s very important to have your schedule free after this work is received so that your body can integrate the changes without additional stress. For more information visit www.upledger.com.
Gentle and relaxing, this therapy is performed with no oil. For a full session shorts and tank or sport bra are worn. This work is not “deep tissue”, however, because the work is done slowly, deep release is attained. Passive stretching and focus on areas seemingly unrelated are addressed to achieve balance and deep release.
Cold marble migraine relief:
Deep neck work and facial massage to help decrease heat in the head and neck due to migraines and headaches.
