Stephanie is just really, really good at what she does.

If you are in need of massage therapy in support of cancer treatment (as I am), I would encourage you to run, not walk, to your telephone and make an appointment to see her.

During an extraordinarily difficult time in my life, she is helping me find a path to healing. Best of all, you will feel great during your session and the effects on your physical and mental well-being will last for days afterwards. Very professional; sweet and soothing space; flexibility in scheduling and payment.

Restorative Massage relaxes the body, calms the mind and nourishes the spirit. It is eclectic by nature and may include a wide range of modalities such as hot and cold stone massage, swedish, energy work or aromatherapy. It’s whatever you need at the time of the session in a lovely environment with organic sheets, sweet music, hot towels and your angels.

Oncology Massage is a specialized field designed for anyone, in any stage of cancer. Oncological massage is specific to you and where you are in your treatment with the intention to support you through the effects of surgery, radiation and chemotherapy treatments. 

It is gentle, non-invasive bodywork focused on relaxation and relieving stress. Loosening muscle tension calms the body and eases the mind. It helps improve digestion and sleep as well as your general state of well-being. Post surgery massage puts an emphasis on lymphatic patterning, reducing adhesions and preventing fibrotic tissue from forming. Massage will support your range of motion, address neuropathy, encourage the lymphatic system, reduce pain and swelling, reduce scarring and relax the nervous system.

Breast massage brings nourishing, oxygen rich blood to the breast tissue. Movement and touch stimulate the lymphatic system to remove bacteria, waste products and excess proteins. Healthy lymph flow can help reduce swelling and tenderness, tone the skin, support scar tissue healing and reduce the potential for disease. 

Breast Pain may be a result of hormone fluctuations, surgery, lymphatic congestion, estrogen replacement therapy, water retention, or stress. To vitalize and clear the breasts start by loosening any constriction around the chest, practice good posture and deep breathing whenever you can. Move your breasts by gently shaking or pressing into them and sweep up toward your armpits. The lymph node clusters in your armpits are responsible for cleaning 75% of the fluid draining from the breast tissue. The more you can stretch and open this area the better.
