In order to ensure you get the help you need, Im also willing to barter for other goods or services with those who are low income or just prefer an alternate form of payment. 




WOMENS WELLNESS SERVICES:
Therapeutic Companion Services  (PWYW Service)

Therapeutic Companion services are emotional support and companionship for those on their own, seniors, those with disabilities, those with mental health issues or others who are stressed or lonely and need some help with a task or just some company to kill the time. Some may even feel embarrassed to ask friends and family for help so they come to me. Im not a psychologist, counselor or someone who is gonna try to fix you or judge you, Im just a friend willing to give you the attention you deserve, make you feel cared for and help in any way. I have a well rounded background in Nursing, Caretaking, Personal Protection, Therapeutic touch and Communications and am a bit of a handyman which makes me well suited for providing these services. Any platonic activity you would do with a friend is acceptable, if that be an outing or even just need some company to break up the monotony of being home alone.  Learn More

Manual lymphatic drainage (MLD)

Type of massage  performed to encourage the natural drainage of the lymph, which carries waste products away from the tissues back toward the heart. The lymph system depends on intrinsic contractions of the smooth muscle cells in the walls of lymph vessels (peristalsis) and the movement of skeletal muscles to propel lymph through the vessels to lymph nodes and then to the lymph ducts which return lymph to the cardiovascular system. Manual lymph drainage uses a specific amount of pressure (less than 9 ounces per square inch or about 4 kPa) and rhythmic circular movements to stimulate lymph flow.


Pelvic Floor Release 

Pelvic Floor Muscles respond well to therapy. Childbirth, life long constipation, trauma, injury, abdominal surgeries, among other things, can contribute to weakened pelvic floor muscles. Damage to the pelvic floor contributes to urinary incontinence and can lead to pelvic organ prolapse. Prolapse occurs in women when pelvic organs (bladder, rectum, vagina or uterus) protrude into or outside of the vagina. Pelvic Floor Massage can strengthen and tone pelvic floor muscles. This can create a stronger and stable pelvic floor, release tight and sore areas in and around the pelvic region and facilitate blood flow in ischemic areas and allow the body to reorganize around the work. The body wants to be in alignment to work correctly and damaged soft tissue can be retrained with massage. I only focus on the external areas, if you require internal work I can give you instructions on how to perform self massage in the privacy of your own home.

Insomnia Massage 

This type of massage is dedicated to those who suffer from conditions like insomnia or restless leg syndrome(RLS). This particular massage modality takes place at bedtime, I will massage you until  you fall asleep for the night so there needs to be a pre-arranged plan for the therapist to leave your home without waking you up. This can be coordinated with another family member or some other method. 

Facial Massage

Massage is a mandatory procedure for skin care face and body. Using some techniques it is possible to treat various skin diseases, with the help of others to rejuvenate the skin, improve its condition, smooth out the wrinkles. Using myofascial massage eliminates deformation of the connective tissue of the body, give it the form and allow free movement. The effects of massage can be noticed after conducting 2-3 procedures. Massage can get rid of muscle spasms and tension, wrinkles on the forehead, at the corners of the eyes, smooth nasolabial triangle. In this case, normal operation of the nervous system, improves blood circulation with the addition of oxygen and nutrients to the brain, normal heart rhythm and breathing, there is a persistent glow and fresh look of the face and body. 

Complete Massage Add-on  (PWYW Service)

Make your full body massage a complete massage instead. 

A complete massage is a full body massage, but not limited to strict draping and every part of your body may be worked on completely. The client has the option of receiving a treatment loosely or completely undraped depending on their comfort level. With most massage sessions there is a higher emphasis on “draping” and “towel techniques,” whereby the client almost becomes lost in the process and the practitioner’s attention becomes more about the lay of the sheet, not the comfort of the client. Receiving a massage nude also facilitates greater relaxation since it enables us to relax fully and not be distracted by the therapist continually re-positioning the drape. Take away these distractions and you remove any barriers to the mind’s ability to free flow and it becomes much more of a natural, fluid process. Additionally it allows more convenient access to areas around the breasts and inner thigh which are traditionally skipped because of strict draping requirements. Women’s bodies especially are neglected by today’s Massage Therapists because it is so taboo to massage around a woman’s breasts or near the groin, these are both areas of major lymph nodes, large muscle groups, emotional storage, and chakras.  The University of Berkeley discovered that breast massage not only prevents breast cancer but can reverse cancer growth.  http://news.berkeley.edu/2012/12/17/malignant-breast-cells-grow-normally-when-compressed/. In Europe and Asia it is accepted and natural to work on the breast and around the groin.  After all they are only body parts that need just as much circulation and stimulation as any other part of the body, sometimes even more so. It can consist of only Swedish relaxation techniques or it can also include some deep tissue, sexual dysfunction and pelvic release techniques depending on your goals. So if you are wanting a complete full body massage integrating the entire mind, body and spirit without unnatural limitations and inhibitions then you will rejoice with my Complete Massage session.
