classic table sessions
During a classic table session, clients lie under a sheet and blanket on cushioned table while undressed to their level of comfort. Massage techniques are used that require massage lotion or oil during therapy.
A classic table session is ideal for:
a mini vacation - time to let go of your responsibilities and de-stress. Depending on your goals, Emily will only engage you in minimal feedback to make sure you are comfortable.
those comforted by the soothing application of oils. Experience the calming effect of gliding massage techniques that quiet the mind and support relaxation.
a cold or rainy day. Maximize the therapeutic value of heat with a table warmer and with the placement of heated packs on achy, tight muscles.
Fully clothed table and floor mat sessions
Alleviate muscle tightness and mobility restrictions with sessions that include rhythmic compression and stretching techniques with elements of:
thai massage - shiatsu - sports massage - restorative yoga
Remain engaged throughout your session. As movement is the foundation of these sessions, you will become aware of how your body feels and changes with each technique. Actively participating and staying engaged also strengthens your body awareness outside the session. Your awareness helps promote new muscle memory, break habits that cause discomfort and achieve long-term relief.
*Please arrive, or bring with you, gym/yoga attire that allows for easy movement (no jeans).
