WHOLISTIC SERVICES & RATES

THERAPEUTIC MASSAGE

THERAPEUTIC MASSAGE

Rates

30 Min $40 / 60 Min $70 / 90 Min $100 / 120 Min $140

The therapeutic massage is my "signature massage" and is by far the most requested. It typically requires deeper therapeutic pressure to reduce pain and imbalance within the soft tissue. This massage is specific to the clients's dysfunctions and incorporates Neuromuscular and Trigger Point Therapy,  Myofascial Release, Table Stretching and Thermotherapy. I use any technique I feel would most benefit the client.

 

Self Care Tips

Muscle soreness can occur after deep work. The following self care tips will help offset soreness and lengthen the effects of bodywork.

  • Drink more water than "normal"

  • Take an Epsom salts bath 

  • Light stretching

  • Adequate nutrition  

Common Add-Ins

Cupping to a trouble area - $5

Kinesiology tape - $5-10 (depending on amount of tape used)

 

THERA-HERBAL MASSAGE

Rates

30 Min $50 / 60 Min $80 / 90 Min $110 / 120 Min $150

The Thera-Herbal Massage incorporates all of my herbal practices: topical essential oils, full spectrum herbal infused CBD oil & burning of sage and/or Palo Santo  before and after the massage to ground and cleanse the client. This massage focuses on down-regulation over therapeutic deep pressures. More stretching, myofasical holds, and heat therapies are used. This is not a "light pressure" massage. My intention is to bring you into your parasympathetic state over any using sympathetic nervous system techniques, amplified with various healing herbal elements. I love essential oils and herbal remedies, so this style of massage is my way of combining plant energetics with bodywork. 

This style of massage is excellent for those suffering from insomnia, anxiety racing thoughts, systemic inflammation and general heightened stress. 

Herbal Self Care Tips

  • If any citrus essential oils are used, do not expose your skin to direct sunlight. These oils are photosensitive and possibly create an inflammatory skin reaction. 

  • Wait to shower at least 2 hours post massage, and if possible wait until the following day. This will give the herbal oils time to provide their therapies. 

  • Allow your body to rest and down regulate. Avoid vigorous exercise and high stress environments.​

  • Increase water consumption. 

 

THERA-CUPPING MASSAGE

Rates

30 Min $50 / 60 Min $80 / 90 Min $110 / 120 Min $150

The Thera-Cupping Massage is my therapeutic massage incorporating multi-area or full-body Cup Therapy. I will combine massage techniques with cups to significantly increase blood flow to areas of dysfunction. I leave the cups on "problem" areas for 2-8 minutes. Cups will be applied as both gliding and stationary for maximum benefits.

I typically apply a cooling lineament of either Deep Blue, diluted peppermint essential oil, or CBD ($10 up-charge for CBD) to tone down the inflammation caused by the cups. We want some inflammation to initiate healing the soft tissue, but my intention is not for your body to see cupping as damaging...light anti-inflammatory agents can assist in welcoming cupping to the body's tissue memory.

Benefits of Cup Therapy (aka Cupping or Myofascial Decompression)

  • Increases circulation and blood flow to an area

  • Myofascial Release: the negative pressure created by the suction of tissue into the cups generates heat, which stimulates the mobility of fascia

  • Eliminates trigger points and adhesions within the myofascia

  • Soft Tissue pain relief

  • Relaxation by down-regulating the nervous system

  • Increases Range Of Motion of a joint(s) by loosing the myofascia around the articulation 

 

Self Care Tips

  • Do not take a hot shower for up to 5 hours post treatment. 

  • If the cupped area feels hot or itchy, use cooling care on the area. This could include some cryotherapy or lineament of choice (I recommend Tiger Balm, Real Time Pain Relief,  or some DILUTED anti-inflammatory and analgesic essential oils like wintergreen, peppermint, or lavender). These sensations are NORMAL. They are a byproduct of myofascial changes. 

Cupping Add-In : $5

Don't want full body Myofascial Decompression? Choose to incorporate cups on a "trouble area" of the body. 

 

KINESIOLOGY TAPING WITH ROCKTAPE

Rates

$35 Taping Appointment (no-oil myofascial release style massage & stretching to affected area + taping)

$10 Massage Add-In (price dependent on size of area taped)

Rocktape is a type of kinesiology tape. The biggest attribute to the miracle of kinesiology tape is that it changes the neurosensory input to the central nervous system at an area of pain and discomfort ...thus changing the sensory output and decreasing or taking away your perception of pain.

 

Taping doesn't cure your dysfunction in the long term. It is a way to tone down pain and inflammation while applied to the skin. While the tape is on, I encourage you to work on mobility of the affected area to retrain your mind that the body is capable of moving with-out pain. I believe kinesiology tape is relatable to a cortisone shot...it is a non-pharmaceutical anti-inflammatory agent. 

Benefits of Rocktape

  1. Helps relieve pain.

  2. Decompresses an area of swelling and inflammation.

  3. Help to correct posture & soft tissue imbalance. 

  4. Normalizes muscle tone.

  5. Allows full range of motion to the area of application.

 

​Self Care Tips

  • Can be left on for 3-5 days.

  • You can shower with the tape on.

  • When the tape starts to peel off, cut it back carefully. 

  • GENTLY peel off the tape (ask and I will show best way)

Rocktape is an adhesive, hypo-allergenic, acrylic based tape with NO LATEX. 

 

CBD SALVE ADD-IN

Rate

$10 

CBD is the abbreviation for Cannabidiol, a component of the Cannabis Sativa plant.  It is not psychoactive, habit forming or addictive and can be legally purchased in North Carolina. 

Benefits of CBD

  • Anti-INFLAMMATORY

  • Anti-ANXIETY & Anti-DEPRESSANT

  • Anti-CONVULSIVE & Anti-SPASM

  • Reduces MUSCLE & JOINT PAIN

  • Promotes RELAXATION & SlEEP

 

CBD oil can be added into the massage per request. It will be applied to areas of discomfort during the massage. 

I use RitualX Hemp Extract CBD products within my practice. These products are derived from full-spectrum hemp, meaning the oil was taken from the entire plant and not isolated out. Cannabinoids and terpenes other than CBD remain in the oil and provide a greater synergistic healing (referred to as the entourage effect). I use the Formula 11 Hemp Extract & Balm in my practice. RitualX is a local CBD company to Southern Pines, NC.

I use Doterra and Mountain Rose Herbs essential oils and products, local RitualX CBD salve, Biotone Organics lotion, & organic jojoba or fractionated coconut oil as massage topicals. I am aware of skin sensitivity and the use of chemical additives in many massage products, which is why I use high quality brands or create my own products.

I am a Doterra Essential Oils member.
