A customized blend of orthopedic massage, myofascial release, and stretching techniques with focus on the soft tissue surrounding joints and the health of the joints.

Good for treating common orthopedic conditions stemming from repetive strains, sports injuries, postural imbalance from poor work ergonomics, chronic pain, scar tissue from surgery or traumatic injury.
Oncology massage is the adaptation of massage techniques to safely nurture the body of someone affected by cancer and cancer treamtents. This is a safe and effective treatment during active cancer treatment, recovery and survivorship.
Many cancer patients require long-term massage modification. As a trained oncology massage therapist, Andrea has an informed understanding of the pathophysiology of cancer, the side effects of cancer treatments, such as medications, surgery, chemotheropy and radiation, and can adapt massage techniques to safely meet the changing bodywork considerations during and after treatment.
Oncology Massage treatments are scheduled in 90 minute time slots. One hour is for hands-on work and the remaining time is for verbal assessments, updates and discussing each session plan prior to each treatment.
SOMATIC WISDOM BODYWORK
This holistic, body-oriented process addresses the physical symptoms of post-trauma and cumulative stress disorders. Trauma and on-going stress reduce our flexibility and move us towards rigidity. The experience of a traumatic event or surviving long-term stress can leave residual adverse effects that can feel "stuck" in one's physical being. Somatic Wisdom Bodywork provides a framework to assess where a person is "stuck" and helps one develop capacity to function with more resilience and ease.
This work can be helpful for anyone who has experienced accidents, invasive medical prodedures, life-threatening medical diagnosis, chronic illness, sexual or physical assault, emotional abuse, war, natural disasters, grief and loss, birth trauma, or stress from ongoing fear and conflict.
Touch and phycial movement can be part of this process, and clients remain fully dressed in comfortable clothing. This is an intentionally slow and gentle process. The aim is to promote better self-regulation through the awareness of body sensations connected to an event or circumstances, not to re-live or re-enact the story content or details.
