Massage for Anxiety, Relaxation and Stress Management
Designed for more intense focused work, massage for pain management uses feedback from the client to determine pressure levels and focus areas. This is an experience of both targeted deep pressure in specific areas and general all over long strokes with pressure, to create a deep massage feeling. Here, I use a combination of long, flowing strokes and smaller flowing circular strokes with medium pressure. I also incorporate one or two areas of deeper focus. (most people choose shoulders and upper back) The goal of this massage is relaxation.
Massage for Chronic Pain Management

Oncology massage is massage that is adapted for the specific considerations of oncology clients, by skilled and specially trained oncology massage therapists. These adaptations provide both relief and safety. I use a person’s cancer history and current treatment information to develop a care plan that provides comforting touch and relief from: pain, nausea, fatigue, anxiety, and depression. This care plan can be shared with physicians and nurses in your care circle, who can then be informed and have input into the plan. The goals of the massage therapy treatment are outlined in the plan as well as the modifications that are being made. Oncology massage therapy is a valued complementary therapy offered in hundreds of hospitals and cancer centers across the country, including Dana Farber Cancer Institute, Boston Medical Center, and Dartmouth-Hitchcock Medical Center.

Oncology massage intakes are more detailed, and are typically done over the phone a few days before the appointment in order to create a treatment plan.

Cancellations, no-shows and late arrivals
If you need to cancel or reschedule, please contact me as soon as possible. Having more time allows me to offer that appointment to another client, so it is really appreciated. There is no fee for cancellation and rescheduling. Should you forget or consciously choose to miss your appointment, you will be charged the scheduled appointment price. If you arrive late, your session will be shortened, and you will be charged the full amount of the scheduled session.
