Using my feet and body weight, I glide on your body in order to melt away knots and improve your posture. This style permits blissfully deep penetration of large muscle groups and is a big hit for those who feel like therapists often "don't get deep enough". With the Ashiatsu bars above my table, I am able to stabilize by body so movements are deep, slow & hypnotic. All body types can receive Ashiatsu -- the pressure is easily lightened to accommodate smaller frames or those who don't want my full body weight.
Focuses on treating chronic, painful, problematic injuries and musculo-skeletal distortions. Typically used to treat specific areas of complaint, it is great for improving the condition of repetitive use injuries, pre-op/post-op discomfort, enhancing muscle performance & improving quality of life for athletes.
Traditional Thai massage is given through loose clothing and uses no oil. It fuses a combination of Acupressure and passive Yoga stretches to help you lengthen and re-center your body. Thai work is great for improving soft tissue health and joint flexibility.
The purpose of Swedish massage is to increase oxygen flow in the blood and flush toxins from the muscles. This style uses long flowing strokes, kneading, friction, tapping and vibration to achieve increased nourishment to the skin and muscle tissue.
Deep tissue work addresses both superficial and deeper muscles of the body. Unless requested not to, Ashiatsu is always incorporated into this style at Studio 3. Heat applications are used to warm up the tissue in order for deeper penetration.
An ancient form of energy work, Reiki is designed to balance the chakras (energy centers) of your neurological system in order to enhance your body's own natural healing capabilities. It's completely passive and only a light touch will be physically felt. Energetically however, recipients can experience a number of sensations including floating, spinning, lucid dreaming, tingling, vibration or waves of emotion.
( Most sessions are eclectic in nature and encompass a combination of skilled techniques )
