My "Barefoot Fusion Massage" starts with a foundation of the deep flowing movements that embody Chavutti Thirumal. However, traditional Chavutti Thirumal has a very specific progression through movements, whereas my barefoot fusion massage is improvisational. Additionally, I incorporate many styles and techniques into every session. During one massage I may use the slow deliberate pressure of Japanese/American Ashiatsu, the rhythmic pressing from Chinese Tuina, and marry it with some american sports style stretches. After 20 years and thousands of hours of continuing education class I have cherry-picked my favorite techniques and created something that is uniquely my own.
With Barefoot Fusion Massage no two massages are ever the same. This dynamic approach to massage means I can meet your body exactly where it's at today.
As is common with traditional Chavutti Thirumal I use LOTS of natural oil (a blend of coconut, avocado, olive, and grape-seed).
I have a range of aromatherapy options to help customize every massage session for your goals of that day. (If you are sensitive to aromas and need to be in a scent free environment I am happy to accomodate you. PLEASE contact me before you schedule and inform me so I can make sure the room/steam towels/and linens are free of scents before you come in for your session).
Steam towel treatment is included with all of my sessions.
Before each massage session I'll check in with you about your comfort level, areas of concern, and any adjustments you need to be as relaxed as possible.
I run a body positive practice. I believe everyBODY is worthy of respect and care, We will acknowledge where you are at in this moment and work together to bring you a sense of restful revitalization in a safe and non judgemental way.
