Relaxation Massage

This massage service utilizes lighter pressure to melt surface tension away. “I just want to relax”, is often a request, or for the person wanting to receive care during physical or stressful times. Drift off and replenish while the massage encourages your body and mind to shift into a more relaxed and settled state. It is designed to create calm and ease muscle fatigue.

“I was able to drift in and out, not quite awake, not quite asleep.  I forget how good a massage can make you feel.”

Therapeutic Massage

To be effective, therapeutic massage must be tailored to your needs. Whether you are recovering from injury or illness, dealing with chronic tension and pain, Eileen addresses your specific areas of concern with this service. Treatments incorporate a variety of massage styles to help everyone’s unique body and pressure requirements. Most people are looking for pain relief when they request this service.

“I am not always good at stretching, so my therapeutic massages have helped to decrease tension from activities at the gym.”

Deep Tissue Massage Therapy

A deep tissue treatment can be a challenge! This work reaches the deeper layers of muscles, fascia, and tendons. It helps relieve chronic pain, muscle tension, and breaks down adhesions, which can restrict movement. Depending on activity level,  soreness can result for a day or two after this service. A few weekly sessions are recommended for the most benefit.

For those with chronic tension this work has been the most efficient in decreasing deep seated tension. It is not a relaxing session, but with loosening muscles and increasing the blood supply to areas, people feel more relaxed afterwards.

“I have had years of being in constant pain when a neighbor recommended I see Eileen. The first session was difficult, but after each massage session I felt a little bit better with more range of motion and better sleep.  It was the first time in a decade that I had periods of time when pain wasn’t on my mind.”

Oncology Massage

Oncology massage is comfort oriented to ease the side effects of the treatments, medications, and the disease. Studies have found that overall, massage therapy reduced pain, nausea, fatigue, anxiety and depression in cancer patients.

“I was so thankful to go to Eileen before I had my chemo sessions.  Everything about a cancer diagnosis is stressful, being able to get a massage from Eileen was a great respite.  I always felt so much better after I saw her, I was able to face another day.”

Eileen is a member of the Society for Oncology Massage.
