Unless you request a specialty massage such as Lomi Lomi, Pain Neutralization Technique, Cranial Sacral, Reflexology, Cupping/Guasha, or Zen Shiatzu, your integrative massage with Lea will be a unique and customized amalgamation of a full toolbelt of modalities and techniques as she intuits the needs of your body at the time of the massage session. Her expansive training and years of experience will be utilized to provide you with the best possible synergenic benefit.
Most full body integrative massages will be sceduled as 90 minute session to allow adequate time for effectively addressing areas of greater need in addition to relaxation of the full body. A focused massage such as neck-shoulder or reflexology or hand-wrists will be scheduled for 30-minute sessions. Zen Shiatsu or Cranial Sacral Unwinding will be scheduled for 30-minute sessions.
