Therapeutic massage involves addressing deeper, more specific muscles of the body compared to a Swedish massage that is performed to provide relaxation. The therapist needs extensive knowledge of anatomy and physiology and addresses the joint range of motion limitations. Therapeutic modalities treat the soft tissues of the body with a combination of techniques that include myofascial release, trigger point therapy, tissue manipulation and mobilization. These techniques are aimed at correcting soft tissue imbalances and dysfunctions, enhancing range of motion, increasing blood flow, decreasing pain and healing time, and more. CBD oil can be added to any massage to enhance the reduction of inflammation and pain. Each clinical session is designed towards the client's specific therapeutic needs which are revealed through their physicians diagnosis, direct communication, instinctual, and energetic discovery.
by Lisa Reavley, CMT
Since her childhood Lisa knew she was meant to touch people at the core of their being, doing what she could to make a difference. Well into her adulthood, after meandering through a couple of different professions, she circled back to her first love. Lisa quit her job and went back to school to learn massage therapy and in 2001 she graduated from the American Institute of Massage Therapy. She took her national NCBTMB test to become an LMT (Licensed Massage Therapist). During her studies, Lisa was introduced to multiple modalities which confirmed to her that her real calling lay within the field of holistic massage and bodywork. With her continuing education she naturally gravitated toward therapies that treated the whole person. In April 2008 she took the step of becoming a Reiki Master and not only did that effect her massage practice, it had a profound effect on all areas of her life. Lisa now practices what she calls Metta Massage, the act of loving-kindness through the bodywork she does. She believes in treating Mind-Body-Spirit so her massage sessions are blended to include various styles of massage, from deep to gentle and includes energy work and the Graston Technique to help guide you back to your natural state of balance.

Clinical Animal Massage & Reiki
for physical and mental pain management
Animals benefit from touch just like we do!
But sports massage goes beyond the loving petting they get from you. This therapeutic treatment modality can alleviate pain by reducing inflammation & swelling in the joints, enhance range of motion, rid the body of harmful toxins, positively effect emotion & mental stability. It can be performed on most any animal, at any point in their life. From the athletic, even competing horse or dog to the retiring and beloved family pet.
Reiki is a Japanese technique for stress reduction and relaxation that also promotes healing. Universal life force energy is channeled through the practitioner and applied in either a hands-on method or at a distance. Reiki treats body, emotions, mind and spirit.
Session lengths range due to size and compliance of the creature.
for bringing peace of mind and healing along with greater connection
The sensitive nature and unwavering honesty that animals cannot hide give aide to their healing process. The Trust Technique was designed to bring peace of mind to animals who have been abused, neglected, mistreated in any way. Behavioral issues such as excessive barking, aggressiveness with other dogs, discomfort with unfamiliar humans, dislike for being put on a leash, etc. come from past experiences, most likely in the very earliest stages of life. Animals have the capacity to go through an early life regression to release the fears that have molded their personalities. By going at the animal's pace and allowing listening to turn into learning, The Trust Technique teaches the animal how to find their way back to the peace they once knew and to the confidence they so deserve.
... anything can be accomplished.
This wonderful modality works hand-in-hand with massage to aid in the healing of the stressed animal.
Session lengths vary. CBD Oil for pets available upon request for an additional minimal fee.

"Erika is a fantastic massage therapist. She finds the knots and knows just the right technique and pressure to use to work them out. She is also a very nice and caring person which makes the massage experience that much better."
My horse loves Erika! She has really helped him when he's been hurt and by working on some old issues. She has a really nice energy that seems to relax him too :)
"Erika is knowledgable, personable and thorough. She does an evaluation each visit, focussing on what each client requires. As a long term client of hers, I am confident that she is a real pro and her work is truly beneficial, particularly on a weekly basis."
