THERAPEUTIC & DEEP TISSUE MASSAGE
For rehabilitation of injured, overused or stressed muscles and to decrease chronic and acute pain. Many techniques are utilized including trigger point therapy, muscle stripping, and some cranial techniques.
A light rhythmic massage aimed at getting your heart rate down and your parasympathetic nervous system engaged.
MASSAGE CARE DURING CANCER TREATMENT
I have additional training in massage therapy during radiation and chemotherapy treatment, as well in treating Axillary Web Syndrome (see to the right). Research at Memorial Sloan-Kettering Cancer Center states that, "...massage therapy helps reduce pain, mood disturbance,and fatigue in cancer patients undergoing chemotherapy. It can reduce psychological and neurological complications and provide comfort to patients undergoing bone marrow transplantation. Massage also improves sleep and reduces depression in patients with advanced cancer."

& CORDING (AXILLARY WEB SYNDROME)
fees include HST
Initial visit (CDT) 90 minutes $145
75 minutes $134
60 minutes $119
If you have lymphedema and are a new client, please book twice a week for 2 weeks with your first visit at 90 minutes, and once a week for the 2 following weeks.
Indicated for general enhancement of your immune system functioning. This is also a component of CDT.
COMBINED DECONGESTIVE THERAPY
The gold standard treatment protocol for management of swelling and lymphedema. In the initial phase of treatment clients are seen 2-5 times per week, weening off over consecutive weeks. Treatment intensity is dependant on the extent of the lymphedema and the client's compliance with home-care. See 'ABOUT LYMPHEDEMA' for more on treatment protocol.
(Some lymphedema responds well to taping between lymphatic drainage sessions, which I also offer.)
CORDING (AXILLARY WEB SYNDROME)
A common side effect of breast cancer surgery, axillary web syndrome (also known as cording) as well as soft tissue restrictions from surgical intervention are treatable.
