Introduction: *I had 4 doses of Pfizer covid vaccine, and can provide proof if requested. I’m a fully certified Pilates Instructor and a Licensed Massage Therapist specializing/certified in in Myofascial Release. I also a certified ELDOA™️ Trainer. I am also certified in Low Pressure Fitness™️. Myofascial Release: If you are having a chronic issue, this is going to be a very effective bodywork therapy because it is very specific to what needs treatment. Your fascia/muscle is lifted and skillfully stretched- this lift can be similar to cupping without the bruising and unsightly marks. Ease muscle/fascial strain (it is your fascia that authorizes movement of muscles/bones/circulation), improve movement quality, and reduces connective tissue build-up. Pressures applied slowly, sustained & held until release is felt (about 60-90 seconds). Oil is not used in authentic myofascial work because you are not gliding over the bodies tissues, but rather gently/sensitively lifting adhered fascia/muscle, and helping normalize. This causes an interruption to the bodies neurological signaling or “holding pattern,” restoring the area. With regular myofascial therapy, the changes we create in a session have a longer lasting effect due to the fact that the pressure is held until multiple releases are observed. Lines of pull are visually assessed prior to treatment. Swedish Massage: Lymph and circulation focused-similar to that of a lymphatic massage, with the intention of effecting the bodies liquids towards the heart center. Very relaxing. Both modalities will take you out of fight/flight mode (beta brain waves) and place you in rest/heal/digest (theta brain waves). Pilates: I provide this service to clients who have their own apparatus, or mat work. My work as a Pilates Instructor is centered around improving flexibility in areas that are bound up, and strengthening areas that are overly lax. Joint stabilization, balance, proper techniques of load management are also areas of focus, helping to mitigate the problems that come with modern movement dysfunction. ELDOA™️: A French acronym that translates in English to LOADS longitudinal osteo-articular decoaptative strengthening. This is a highly effective way of creating space in our joints by lengthening the collagen tubules in our fascia(connective tissue & ligaments) to allow water to osmotically flow in. Low Pressure Fitness™️ Is as the title sounds, and much more. Not only is it one of the best practices for your diaphragm, TVA, pelvic floor, but also comes with an aesthetic bonus of lifting your abs. Perfect for postnatal (3 months if abdominal surgery, 6 weeks if vaginal), anyone with hernias, prolapse, incontinence, prudendal issues and more. The concept is slow fitness, relaxing the torso to enable hypopressives (abdominal vacuum). The practice starts with gentle core activation, Myofascial stretching and abdominal massage to begin the decompression of ribs and other areas of pull, and finally, the breath-work brings you to the postures where we do the actual hypopressives (abdominal vacuum). *Heart issues are a contraindication to hypopressives because the practice slowly brings you to what we call an exhalation apnea, where we pause the breath for the abdominal vacuum anywhere between 5-10 seconds. However, the slow breathing, the stretches, and postures are possible and beneficial to do without the breath hold. Assisting others to feel body-positive is what my work is all about. I encourage you to give your body the nourishment provided by my manual and movement methods.

Denise was on time. Her set up was wonderful. She asked me what my problem areas were and addressed them full on. She explained what she was doing and if her pressure was comfortable. I have booked my next session already.
