Therapeutic Massage

($95.00 / one hour treatment)

The intention of massage therapy is to improve an individual’s health and well-being through hands-on manipulation of muscles and other soft tissues such as tendons and ligaments to prevent and alleviate pain, discomfort, muscle spasm, and stress.

During your session, I use a wide variety of therapeutic approaches including trigger point therapy, myofascial release, joint mobilizations, deep tissue therapy, and hydrotherapy.

In addition, I can help educate you with regard to proper postural procedures and prevention of harmful repetitive strain patterns.

Hot Stone Massage Therapy

($125.00 / one hour treatment; $170 / one and a half hour treatment)

Hot stone massage is one of the most popular complementary treatments. It combines Swedish massage techniques, the time-proven healing properties of hot and cold therapy, and stones for natural healing. The use of hot stones has its roots as far back as 1500 B.C. and has been used by Native Americans to detoxify, and find harmony and balance. It is the perfect treatment for achieving mental wellness as the heat of the stones causes a deep meditative state.

Some of the benefits that you can expect after a good massage therapy session using hot stones:

  • muscle relaxation – the penetrating heat is ideal for relieving muscle tension, aches and pains
  • deeply calming and relaxing
  • relieves stress improving insomnia, depression and emotional wellness

Testimonial

I've gone to Gerri for some craniosacral, but primarily massage therapy for about 14 years. I've tried several other therapists, too, and just keep going back to Gerri. For me, she provides the perfect combination of a relaxing and therapeutic massage, a soothing environment, her gentle nature, and knowing just how much to engage me in conversation before letting me drift off and enjoy the experience. Gerri is a highly skilled therapist and very intuitive to my needs. My only regret is that my wonderful sessions with her always have to end!~Charlene Ball, Client
