Denise incorporates a combination of techniques into each personalized session based on what she FEELS the body needs that day. Techniques include Swedish, Deep Tissue, Myofascial, Muscle Release, Orthopedic Massage, and Active Isolated Stretching. Throughout the session, clients are encouraged to provide verbal feedback and actively participate in several techniques, both of which aid in awakening the mind-body connection. Denise has developed a strong intuition in LISTENING to the client’s body to determine which techniques will be most effective for that session. Afterward, Denise and the client discuss changes that occurred during the session; recommend stretches, postural awareness, or other lifestyle changes; then determine a plan for future sessions.
Massage therapy during pregnancy can help to alleviate the many discomforts associated with momma’s changing body. And massage therapy after pregnancy is just as important in maintaining healthy posture when breast feeding and when carrying awkwardly bulky infant carriers. During the massage session, Denise will incorporate a variety of techniques to lengthen contracted muscles and to improve flexibility.
