Whether you are recovering from a car accident, were sent by your physician, are trying to keep your throwing arm in good shape, are managing stress or otherwise, we are glad you’re here and that we can help.
For owner and Licensed Massage Therapist Heather Ralston, slow, mindful, sustained work that accesses deeper tissues without creating a protective response in the body is her specialty. She does not work within the “pain is gain” philosophy and uses the body’s relaxation response, stimulating the restorative processes of the parasympathetic nervous system to allow body and mind to relax together. Often we begin with a physical injury or imbalance but our minds continue to guard an area, which wastes our precious energy and results in pain. Addressing fascial restrictions and trigger points as well as unconscious patterns of tension allows the healing work to make a more lasting impact.
Heather is trained in Swedish, Hawaiian lomilomi, sports, deep tissue, cupping massage, aromatherapy, lymphatic drainage (see description combined with cupping massage), prenatal, and infant massage. While prenatal and infant massage are standalone services, all remaining techniques can be combined. Click on any of the techniques below to find out more.
