Brigitta's style of therapeutic massage is a blend of Swedish massage, deep tissue techniques, and medical massage. She uses long, soft to firm strokes to soothe the body tissues in between stronger pressure that releases deeper layers of muscles and connective tissues within the body. In addition to face down and face up positions, she often has the client lay on their side as well (this position is more common in medical massage). This gives her the opportunity to work on sore or painful areas from another angle.
This modality is used to reduce stress, decrease swelling in the arms and legs, as well as relieve muscle and joint pain in pregnant women. The client will lay on their side, bolstered with pillows for maximum comfort. Brigitta will adjust her pressure to the client’s needs.
Therapeutic Hot Stone Massage
This is a regular therapeutic massage that integrates hot stones throughout the session. The hot stones provide soothing warmth for sore muscles and can also be used as tools for deeper pressure (although for most deeper pressure, Brigitta will be using her hands and elbows). This modality is only available as a 90-minute session.
Reflexology (as an add-on)
Reflexology is based on the idea that the glands, organs, and parts of the body are reflected in specific reflex areas on the feet, hands, and ears. Applying pressure to these specific points can reduce pain, alleviate anxiety, and improve circulation, relaxation, and healing in the body. This modality is offered as an add-on for either 15 or 30 minutes. Brigitta’s reflexology training focused only on the feet, so your feet will be the sole focus of this add-on session.
Note: During your initial visit, Brigitta will take some time to discuss your medical history, current health concerns, and the goals for your visit.
