Brooke blends several massage techniques into each session based on your symptoms and goals. Brooke's style of massage is always intended to decrease our "fight or flight" response to stress. Myofascial techniques can be applied to areas with adhesions and fascial restrictions to relieve acute or chronic tension and pain. Brooke's style of bodywork can create deep and lasting structural changes and relieve deep emotional pain.
Brooke also utilizes Craniosacral Therapy (CST) which is a healing technique that utilizes gentle yet powerful manual techniques on the connective tissue, fascia. CST improves the function of the nervous system. When the central nervous system functions well, muscles relax, circulation improves, and pain and swelling decrease. CST can release soft tissue restrictions, pain, and emotional holding patterns. It is very effective at relieving symptoms caused by whiplash, concussions, and other traumatic injuries.
Massage during pregnancy has many benefits for mother and baby. Massage therapy decreases maternal blood pressure, heart and respiratory rates. Increases blood supply to enhance overall fetal, reproductive, and mental health. Reduces swelling and relieves aches and pain associated with pregnancy. Brooke uses a side-lying and/or semi reclined position for your comfort.
HOT STONE MASSAGE
Smooth basalt stones are heated to approximately 120 degrees and applied to the body using various gliding techniques to relax the body at its deepest level. The penetrating heat of the stones draws blood into the area, increasing circulation, and creating a deeply relaxed state, making it a one of a kind experience. Therapeutic stone massage is a very effective way to melt muscle tension and promotes a sense of balance and peace.
