Our bodies are designed to move. They WANT to move. But pain and discomfort can limit our desire and ability to do just that. Injury can inhibit the range of motion, sometimes making it impossible to keep going. But massage therapy can help!
Massage therapy is one of the oldest forms of healing still in use today. Ever hit your head and feel the urge to rub it? It’s our natural instinct to touch the areas of pain or discomfort, bringing relief. The touch is comforting and familiar. However, massage works on a deeper level, stimulating circulation, relaxing muscle tension, rehabilitating injuries and more.
While each technique provides benefits as its own modality, we use an INTEGRATED approach to draw from each in order to tailor the massage to you. This is truly customized for YOU, responding to what your muscles and tissues need, each and every time.
You were never meant to be constrained by your body. You were always meant to be free to move…to be….boundless!
Do you have an injury? Do you experience chronic neck and shoulder fatigue? Does your body feel “stuck”?
This will bring back balance and movement while relieving stress and tension.

Trauma Touch Therapy (TTT) is a gentle, effective treatment to address buried traumas, pent-up emotions and deep tension throughout the body. This therapy is specifically designed for those that have experienced all types of trauma – from physical and mental abuse, to the loss of a job or a loved one. These losses can range from our sense of self, trust, capability, worth, value, power, our bodily rights and/or a sense of belonging.
Trauma lives in the body, often needing support to process out. Our TTT therapist provides a safe environment that respects client’s boundaries and allows for trust to build. Through trust and compassion, trauma can release and the mind/body connection can open and strengthen. This therapy is client-centered and client-led in order to facilitate empowerment, restore that which may have been lost in trauma, and impart the ability to find fun, creativity and joy once again.
Is Trauma Touch Therapy massage?
No. Trauma Touch Therapy is a method of bodywork, and the therapist may place their hands on you, but it is not technically massage. The therapist will ask your permission before placing their hands on you, and you will decide exactly how and where. The touch is usually static and very light. This method is called Simple Touch, and is designed to support and bring attention to an area of your body that is holding trauma.
Is Trauma Touch Therapy talk therapy?
No. Because Trauma Touch Therapy deals with trauma in the body, it’s not necessary to discuss your trauma, or even know what caused it. TTT supports and calms your nervous system, the stress centers of your brain and the tissues of your body, helping you to release the effects of trauma, separate from the emotions and events surrounding it.
I don’t have any big traumas in my life, but I’m feeling stressed and overwhelmed. Can Trauma Touch Therapy help me?
Yes! Your Trauma Touch Therapist helps your nervous system to calm down by creating a safe environment for you to identify the areas in which you are holding stress. Their goal is to provide you with tools to process the physical byproducts of “fight or flight” in your body. You and your therapist work together to teach your nervous system and brain that daily stress is not a mortal threat, allowing space for creativity and joy in your life.
This massage uses the highest quality, organic, non-GMO Cannabidiol (CBD) oil to better enhance your anti-inflammatory response in the body. CBD reduces pain, stress, and anxiety by impacting the endocannabinoid receptors present in the body. Massage further engages the parasympathetic nervous system resulting in a relaxed, pain relieving experience.
This “goes to 11!”
But What Makes Us Different
One – We know anatomy. Really know it – not just the name of a muscle, tendon or joint but its purpose and function. We know how your muscles work (or should work) and how they play together…either to your detriment or your joy. We know which muscles to target for a particular problem, which may surprise you (sometimes the troubled area is pain free). We work the full area of a muscle; not just the large, meaty part. And we ask you to participate on occasion. We are in this together. If you are interested in additional support between sessions, we are happy to give suggestions and “homework” to help you further strengthen and heal your body.
Two – We meet you where you are, in that moment. Each massage with us will be a bit different as differing muscles call out for attention at each session. We’ll fix the trouble zones, soothe the other zones and hit the reset button for well BEing.
Three – We make our own massage lotion complete with 7 skin soothing ingredients carefully selected to nourish the skin, ease aching muscles and be sensitive to all skin types. You know you want to try that!
