Intentions Massage and Bodywork, LLC
About this pro
My work stands out from others because I focus on helping specific issues like chronic stress, anxiety, panic, depression, fertility issues and all aspects of pregnancy massage. I have taken continuing education in treating these disorders with massage. I am certified in Fertility, Pregnancy, Postnatal and Infant massage. I enjoy helping women achieve their desire to become a mother as well and helping to ease their transition to pregnancy as well as the journey back to themselves through postnatal massage. Being an infant massage instructor helps new parents bring the healing and nurturing aspect of comfort touch to their infants and children in a fun and comfortable environment. I have also studied upper body issues and headaches since all these issues go hand in hand. I have also been in the medical field for over 20 years and have extensive knowledge of the body and its systems and dysfunctions. I love that I can assist the body to heal and making someone feel great is so rewarding. I find it amazing how dysfunction in the muscles and fascia can mimic diseases and cause neurological issues and with massage therapy we are able to bring the body back in balance. Western medicine tends to brush off what it can't "fix" but my belief is that if you activate a wellness plan including massage therapy, chances are you won't create illness I the first place.

- How did you get started doing this type of work?I am an anxiety and panic attack sufferer, and at my worst moments the tension in my neck, head and shoulders was debilitating. Massage therapy and relaxation techniques helped me to better cope with my symptoms. My symptoms have been under control now for many years, and whenever I feel like my anxiety is getting out of control I get a massage, deep breathe, meditate and listen to music that brings my heart rate down. Once the adrenaline lowers the racing thoughts relax and I am able to think clearly again. The fact that I have the same issues as many of my clients helps me to be empathetic to what they are going through and where the pain patterns from stress really affect you. I am honored to be allowed to be able to assist you on their healing path.
