An increasing number of research studies show massage reduces stress, lowers blood pressure, increases blood circulation and lymph flow, relaxes muscles, improves range of motion, and increases endorphins (enhancing medical treatment). Although therapeutic massage does not increase muscle strength, it can stimulate weak, inactive muscles and, thus, partially compensate for the lack of exercise and inactivity resulting from illness or injury. It also can hasten and lead to a more complete recovery from exercise or injury.
Research has verified that:
Office workers massaged regularly were more alert, performed better and were less stressed than those who weren’t massaged. Massage therapy decreased the effects of anxiety, tension, depression, pain, and itching in burn patients. Abdominal surgery patients recovered more quickly after massage. Premature infants who were massaged gained more weight and fared better than those who were not. Autistic children showed less erratic behavior after massage therapy.According to the AMTA, massage helps both physically and mentally.

I specialize in transformational neuromuscular massage which is a technique that pins the muscle then stretches and contracts the muscles origin and insertion. This technique is used to reset chronic muscle patterns, relieve tension and reduce pain. I also practice various deep tissue massage techniques, pre and post natal massage, sports massage, infant massage, and geriatric massage as well as basic reflexology.
I am proud to announce the addition of Thai Yoga Massage to Mountain Massage. Also know as assisted yoga, this technique involves breath work through a sequence of stretching and releasing of both the mind (mental) and body (physical). Opening up joints, muscle fibers, meridians, and chakras. Bringing a full body balance.
My main focus is on reducing stress. I also focus on increasing circulation and lymph, relieving tension and pain which lead to a greater well being. I also enjoy doing spa work as I believe it is important to take excellent care of both the external body (integumentary system/skin) and internal body (organs/musculo-skeletal system). Spa treatments release toxins, nourish and replenish the skin. A greater quality of life begins with total mind, body, and spirit harmony.
