I use a few different types of oil or cream in my practice. Usually, you’re not really concerned about what the massage therapist is using on you during a massage (unless you have very sensitive skin), but there are many different types of oils, lotions, and creams that massage therapists use. The cream I use most often is Nutri-Naturals from Biotone. You can find ingredients and information here: Nutri-Naturals Cream.

The Grapeseed is intended for those who have very sensitive.

What is ‘Clinical Massage’? Clinical Massage is used to help relieve (and in some cases resolve) pain of diagnosed injuries in the soft tissue. Some examples are; carpel tunnel, tennis elbow, golfers elbow, runner’s knee, low back pain, sprains, strains, shin splints, whiplash, and planter fasciitis. In all these cases, Clinical Massage is employed during the RECOVERY phase of the injury. If there is inflammation, the injury is not in the recovery phase and massage could do more harm than good.

Massage Therapy has been used since the dawn of time by our ancestors to relieve pain in their family members. It was first organized into a practice in Eastern medicine.

“By touching a body, we touch every event it has experienced. For a few brief moments we hold all of a client’s stories in our hands. We witness someone’s experience of their own flesh, through some of the most powerful means possible: the contact of our hands, the acceptance of the body without judgment, and the occasional listening ear. With these gestures we reach across the isolation of the human experience and hold another person’s legend. In massage therapy, we show up and ask, in so many ways, what it is like to be another human being. In doing so, we build a bridge that may heal us both.” –Tracy.
Fibromyalgia and Chronic Fatigue Syndrome Now Recognized and Helped with Massage Fibromyalgia and Chronic Fatigue Syndrome have been little-understood by the medical community for some time. It’s only recently that they are now recognized by the medical community as real and actual disorders. For years the medical community assumed it was all “in your head” or merely came from an underlying emotional disorder. The Spokane region has an abnormally high incident of these disorders and as I have family and friends affected, it has always been one of my focuses. Anyone suffering from either a diagnosed or undiagnosed case can tell you it’s a very real and debilitating condition. Living.

Touch is extremely powerful. Anything from stress to injury can be helped into healing by touch. My goal is to maintain a safe, clean, comfortable, professional, and (very importantly) relaxing atmosphere. My top priority is to improve quality of life in a gentle, caring way. I will do everything in my power to rise to expectations and conduct our communication, whether it be through voice or touch, in a manner you see fit. Human contact is necessary for both mental and physical health. We need connection, caring, and love in our everyday lives and it is a tragedy that many of us go without the contact we need. Going without.
