Beth prefers to take an "out of the box" approach with her clients. She understands that massage is not a "one size fits all" treatment and that every person has different needs, expectations and preferences. Each massage is uniquely tailored to the individual based on what will yield the best results possible. Beth will always take the time to discuss your options and explain different techniques to make you feel comfortable. Some options are but are definitely not limited to: Deep tissue, trigger point pressure for myofascial tissue, *lymphatic drainage massage (newly added) or dry cupping. You have your choice of 30 minutes ($40), 60 minutes ($80), 90 minutes ($115) or 90 minute lymphatic drainage massage ($150).
About dry cupping:
Beth uses many techniques of massage, but one modality that is quite popular is called “dry cupping.” Used for over 2,000 years in traditional Chinese Medicine, it is a technique used to treat pain, tightness or stiffness by creating better blood flow in the area and breaking up the adhesions in the muscle fascia (surrounding tissue in the body) This is done on dry skin to create a decompression of the adhered or compressed area. This pulls the adhesions in the layers of skin, muscles and myofascial apart, allowing for more oxygen and circulation. Used by many famous Olympic athletes, the technique can be recognized by the very temporary, red, circular skin mark. Is it painful? For most individuals it is very tolerable and slightly uncomfortable at the moment the cup is placed onto to the area being treated.
About lymphatic drainage massage:
Beth is also certified in this gentle and non invasive manual treatment which is highly effective in clearing out any trapped waste or toxins in the lymph nodes. The lymph is an important part of the immune system and also has a close relationship with the skeletal, muscular, digestive, respiratory and nervous systems. For this reason, having poor posture or having an imbalance in the pelvis can negatively impact lymph because the muscles around the main lymph nodes (shoulder/axillary and groin/inguinal) become tight, causing fluid to be trapped in those areas.
