I believe in calming the body as well as the mind while approaching the fascia at a slow and deliberate pace. This provides a deep and effective massage. Many clients are unaware that their range of motion is constantly being evaluated, increased upon and reassessed throughout each session. Some clients really desire that "hurts-so-good" feeling, therefore techniques that give those sensations are used when they are safe and appropriate.
I am an active individual that has participated in triathlons and various other sports. I continue to regularly swim, bike, run, hike and lift weights. I understand how an active lifestyle can be a benefit and burden to the body and work.
At Sage Bodywork, there are no additional fees for different modalities, inclusionof essential oils, balms, cremes or hot or cold therapy. Therapeutic treatments are individually tailored based on each client's needs and generally include elements from multiple modalities.
