your Integrative Therapeutic 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 synergetic benefit.
How long should a massage session be?
Most full body integrative massages will be scheduled as 90 minute session to allow adequate time for effectively addressing areas of greater need in addition to relaxation of the full body.
A 60-minute session does allow time for a Zen Shiatsu session or a massage of the full body with no more than one joint/area needing extra focus. Please note that the shoulder is a complex joint so if this is your "extra focus" need, I would encourage you to get a 90-minute session. My typical integrative massage does include extra focus and acupressure to neck-shoulders tension, low back and spinal easement as these are the most common areas holding tension and/or bearing the results of labor, poor posture and/or day-to-day wear and tear.
A focused massage such as neck-shoulder or reflexology or hand-wrists can be scheduled for 30-minute sessions. Most Pain Neutralization Technique, Cupping, or Cranial Sacral Unwinding sessions will be scheduled for 30-minute sessions unless the client wishes for a longer session to address multiple areas.
Most Integrative Therapeutic Massage sessions will start with:
- Guided Breath Meditation with visualization to calm and revitalize the mind-body connection
During a "regular" therapeutic massage, Lea will draw upon and incorporate from the following to create a blended fluid massage of healing and relaxation:
- all of her knowledge in Traditional Chinese Medicine diagnostics and acupuncture meridian and points theory
- The unique points and point combinations used in Master Tung and Dr Tan Balance
- Swedish Massage
- Lomi Lomi Hawaiian Therapeutic Massage
- PNT Pain Neutralization Techniques (and modifications when part of a regular oiled massage session)
- Touch for Health
- Tuina (Chinese Medical Massage)
- Zen Shiatsu
- Cranial Sacral
- Myofascial Release techniques
- Releases learned from Physical Therapists and Coaches
(as fellow students in massage/technique classes and as a client)
- Unique techniques Lea has created over the years in self-treatments
Energy/Spiritual work intuitively and innately incorporated in most sessions:
- Medical QiGong
- Cranial Sacral space-setting and grounding/connecting
Pre- and Post- session discussion may include:
- Nutritional and hydration recommendations related to specific observations and goals
- A Stretch, Exercise, a Yoga, QiGong or TaiChi technique for a specific purpose for improved body balance and health
- Tips for use of common items to help in powerful yet easy self-massage techniques
- Suggestions if needed for balancing life/body with meditation and/or spiritual habits (never telling anyone what their spiritual habit should be, but a spiritual time is part of the balance needed for full health per sage Chinese Medicine wisdom.
- Handouts to help with self-acupressure and pro-active health
- Referrals to other specialists (local practitioners, books, and online sources)
