What is NMT?
How I can Help
I use a blend of myofascial release, trigger point therapy, muscle energy techniques, active ROM, passive ROM, and very heavenly deep, slow compression strokes. I do focused work on what is causing you discomfort.
Deep Tissue Massage
I offer a truly DEEP massage. So often we need that really deep, slow pressure in our sore, stiff, dense tight feeling muscles. I will give you a massage you actually can feel. One where you say, "Oh, that hurts so good!" I push deep enough into your muscles to bring back beneficial circulation and that peaceful feeling into your body.
Trigger Point Therapy
Trigger points are sore, painful spots—also called knots—found in muscles. These knots are sensitive and when pressure is applied, it produces pain in a different part of your body. A trigger point massage helps work out those knots and reduce the pain associated with them.
Reflexology is the application of pressure to areas on the feet (or the hands). Reflexology is generally relaxing and may help alleviate stress. Pressure applied to the foot is believed to bring relaxation and healing to the corresponding area of the body.
Myofascial release is a type of physical therapy often used to treat myofascial pain syndrome. Myofascial release focuses on reducing pain by easing the tension and tightness in the trigger points.
Active and Passive Range of Motion
Active ROM (range of motion) is the range of motion that can be achieved when opposing muscles contract and relax, resulting in joint movement. Passive ROM is the ability of a joint to be moved through its normal arc of motion while relaxed, with motion being performed by an outside source, such as the therapist’s hand, the client’s opposite hand, or gravity.
A unique treatment experience just for you.
Neuromuscular Massage Therapy is a simple yet very effective way to help you get out of discomfort and pain without harmful side effects. The benefits of this type of massage are felt after just one-hour session. It is affordable, beneficial and it just feels so good!
I can help you with TMJ disorder, shoulder pain, neck pain, low back pain, leg and feet pain. You can always send me an email and ask questions. I love questions!
This is not just another massage. I work on the areas in which you are hurting to alleviate pain.

I also use a blend of myofascial release, trigger point therapy, muscle energy techniques, active ROM, passive ROM and very heavenly deep, slow compression strokes. I usually don’t do whole body massages. I do focused work on what is causing you discomfort. We work together to reduce tight, dense, unyielding muscle. This work restores capillary blood flow, reduces tension, reduces discomfort and brings hope where pain pretty much brings depression. Sometime a muscle with “forget” what it is supposed to do. Sometimes it has been contracted so long it has “muscle amnesia” a real thing! You and I work together to “remind” or “rewire” the muscle and this restoration brings back balance. Other muscles no longer have to compensate for the muscle that was “out of service”. How long does this take? I don’t know. This restorative type massage is cumulative. It often takes a few sessions to work down into layers, restoring circulation. The older the injury the longer it takes. The newer the injury, depending on the injury, perhaps less time it will take.
