Massage Therapy for People, Horses, & Dogs
Relaxation massage focuses on the entire body and helps with relaxing mind, body, and soul. This massage will help ease muscle tension using several massage techniques such as effleurage, petrissage, kneading, and compression. The pressure used is at the client’s comfort level. The client is undressed to their comfort level and draping is used at all times.
Therapeutic massage focuses on the problem areas people tend to have with a specific area. For example, tennis elbow, golfer’s elbow, stiff neck, or tingling fingers. I am focusing on the specific area while using neuromuscular techniques that work with the muscles involved.
I combine both relaxation and therapeutic since tension is almost always found during a massage.
The massage touch used for oncology and palliative clients is very light and soothing. This light, soothing touch is calming and relaxing during stressful & difficult times. A physician’s release may be needed for some clients.
