Thank you for your interest in massage therapy, particularly your interest in wanting to know who will be massaging you. The style of massage and the professional trust that builds between you and your therapist is essential in creating a top notch, on going, quality massage experience for you as well as for your therapist.
Through my 24 years of massaging full time, I have always given my best massages when you, the client can let go, relax and receive the therapy. This letting go and receiving allows a space for my intuitive touch to flow readily and easily, assisting me to naturally pull from my tool bag of massage modalities to best help you. Below is a list of the different modalities of massage I have studied and currently practice.
For sessions that call for a focus on decreasing muscular tension and/or rehabilitation from injuries, I will incorporate a mix of Neuromuscular Massage Therapy (NMT), Active Release Technique and Myofascial Release. For the client seeking stress reduction massage I will use a blend of Swedish, Stretching and CranioSacral Therapy. Lymph Drainage is a speciality modality that I use to reduce any swelling, in your joints, from arthritis or sprains. I will also use Lymph Drainage for your face and neck to relieve sinus headaches and swelling from cosmetic surgery.
I realize there are many massage therapists and establishments to choose from and I will welcome your business and trust in my hands. However I am seeking clients who are sincere about wanting to talk care of themselves and who value the results of quality, professional massage care. If you are the type of person seeking balance, respect and well-being in your life, I am your massage therapist. Sincerely, Giselle Toran, LMT License#MT000858
