As a Hospice massage therapist I am trained and experienced in working with patients at end of life. Massage can be a wonderful tool to aid in pain relief, help alleviate anxiety and fear, provide compassionate and caring touch and so much more. I do approximately 20-25 Hospice massages per week and have experience with almost every condition, including heart failure, cancer, MS, ALS, Parkinson's, Alzheimer's and dementia and many,many others. I am trained on what can and can not be done in almost any medical condition. I offer 30 minute in-home or in-facility sessions for 55.00 and 60 minutes for 95.00.
Swedish Massage is a very relaxing and therapeutic style of bodywork. It combines oils or lotion with an array of strokes such as rolling, kneading, and percussion to help the body improve its circulation. The benefits of this type of bodywork are wide-ranging and include relief from aches and pains, decreased stress levels in the body, enhanced mental clarity, improved appearance, and greater flexibility.
Deep Tissue Massage is a form of bodywork that aims to relieve tension in the deeper layers of tissue in the body. Deep Tissue Massage is a highly effective method for releasing chronic stress areas due to misalignment, repetitive motions, and past lingering injuries. Due to the nature of the deep tissue work, open communication during the session is crucial to make sure you don't get too uncomfortable. Keep in mind that soreness is pretty common after the treatment, and that plenty of water should be ingested to aid with the flushing and removal of toxins that will have been released from the deep tissue during the session. Remember that deep tissue does not necessarily mean deep pressure.
Reiki is a Japanese form of energy work that cleanses and balances the energy system in the body. As a result, the body's natural self-healing mechanisms strengthen, helping to establish optimum health. During a session, I work directly with your energy field to remove blockages, detoxify your system, and restore your vital life force energy. Reiki utilizes a gentle laying on of hands to conduct the necessary energy force between us. The benefits of Reiki range from the release of habitual mental/emotional stress to alleviating chronic pain.
The best of both worlds. Enjoy a 60 minute Swedish massage and end with 30 minutes of Reiki.

You do not need specific pregnancy massage certification in the state of Connecticut to give a pregnancy massage! It is, in my opinion, outrageous that most massage therapists barely skim the surface of pregnancy massage during their training.The information and techniques that I learned in my Pregnancy certification course were some the most valuable I've learned in any of my training. I can't stress this enough... Please only use a massage therapist that is certified during this amazing time in your life. It will make the experience much safer and more enjoyable for both you and your baby. Pregnancy is a time when a woman's body endures tremendous stress due to dramatic physical and emotional changes. Using various techniques specially developed for the expecting mother, Pregnancy Massage helps release the pain and discomfort experienced throughout pregnancy. The benefits are profound, including emotional support, the relief of joint pain due to extra weight and postural imbalance, and improved breathing and relaxation.
