About Irene

Hello!  Allow me to introduce myself.  My name is Irene.  I am a licensed massage therapist and a 2014 graduate from Irene’s Myomassology Institute. I have long had a passion for helping others and it is my aim, that through massage, clients may find stress reduction and feel their best.  

In addition to massage therapy, I have training as a group fitness instructor and a physical therapist assistant.  Over the years I have continued my studies in body work and health care to expand my skills and knowledge to all aspects of our being – body, mind, and spirit.  My studies include courses in Myofascial release, Craniosacral therapy, cupping, kinesiotaping, Mindfulness Based Stress Reduction (MBSR), Yoga teacher training (200 hours), and Reiki (I & II). 

I offer several massage modalities from which you can choose beginning with a basic Swedish massage. Or, you may choose a massage tailored to your specific concerns which may contain a combination of myofascial release, cupping, stretching, or instrument assisted massage. There is also Thai yoga massage, prenatal massage, table Thai combo and Reiki (see description and fee schedule).  Hot stones will be available in the near future.

Swedish Massage

If you are looking to simply relax and let the stress of the day get massaged away, this is the massage for you.  Long relaxing strokes with mild to moderate pressure are used to relieve muscle tension.  Proper draping techniques are used at all times, and clients disrobe to their comfort level.  This session does not include the use of other techniques such as myofascial release, or cupping.

         30 minutes - $50

         60 minutes - $70

         90 minutes - $90   

Prenatal Massage

Pregnancy brings with it stresses on both body and emotions.  Treat yourself to an hour of relaxation.  The massage is done in a side-lying position with pillows used to properly support the body.  Long relaxing strokes will be used to massage the back, neck, legs, and arms.  Light massage of the head and face can also be included at the client’s request.

         30 minutes - $50

         60 minutes - $70

Tailored Massage

This massage is designed to meet the concerns of each individual and uses light, moderate and/or firm pressure and may contain stretching, instrument assisted massage, myofascial release, cupping, and or craniosacral therapy.   These techniques will be employed on a goal-based assessment and client medical history. (Some conditions may prohibit a particular technique).

         90 minutes - $105

Thai Yoga Massage

Sometimes referred to as “lazy man’s yoga,” this massage is typically conducted on a mat with the client fully clothed. The practitioner uses palms, thumbs, and feet to provide compressions and rocking, and assists the client into several stretches and yoga poses (see pictures).  Comfortable, loose fitting clothing should be worn to the session.

         

         60 minutes - $80

         90 minutes - $100

                

   

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Table Thai Combo

This massage is great for active/athletic clients as well as those with physically demanding jobs.  This massage is done fully clothed (loose comfortable clothing should be worn) and on a massage table.  It consists of compression (see Thai yoga massage above), massage, and assisted stretches and yoga poses (see pictures).

         30 minutes - $60

         60 minutes - $80

         90 minutes - $100

 

 

 

 

 

Reiki

The National Center for Complementary & Integrative Health, 2015, defined Reiki as “… a complimentary health approach in which practitioners place their hands lightly on or just above a person, with the goal of facilitating the person’s own healing response.”

Reiki is done with the person fully clothed.  The practitioner places their hands lightly on or just above certain areas of the body such as head, ears, heart center, abdomen, shoulders and hands, hips and feet.  Many of the areas of placement are over energetic areas of the body that contain endocrine glands and nerve plexuses.  The body has its own innate ability to heal and as the practitioner, I am merely a facilitator of that healing.  The healing may be emotional as well as physical.

         60 minutes - $70              

 

Hot Stones (Not available at this time, but anticipated in Dec 2020)

This massage is probably the most relaxing massage there is 😊.   This 90-minute session uses basalt stones, which have been heated in water and applied to various parts of the body (such as the low back).  Warm stones are then also used as tools in the massage. The stone massage helps to reduce stress, and may increase circulation, relive pain, facilitate relaxation of tight and sore muscles.  Cool marble stones are used on the face and may help to open sinuses and relieve congestion. 

         90 minutes - $140
