Mary Ellen receiving MFR

A form of bodywork that addresses people with painful conditions and injuries. It consists of releasing tension and restrictions of the fascia which is a form of connective tissue extends from the top of the head to the tip of the toes, covering and penetrating every structure in the body. It is one of the most effective techniques for relieving pain, improving posture and helping people in pain to regain their quality of life. Frequently recommended by physicians and chiropractors.

This therapy has been successfully used to treat headaches, neck and back pain, TMJ, chronic fatigue, eye problems central nervous system disorders, attention deficit and autism.

 

Deep Tissue Regional Massage:

When choosing deep tissue massage as a modality, very focused deep tissue massage must be applied to the region of concern (e.g. neck, shoulder or low back) and the surrounding tissues in order to achieve pain relief and healing to the region. It consists of slow strokes, carefully applied deep pressure work and trigger point therapy. Deep tissue regional massage is highly effective when combined with myofascial release in a session.

  • Accolades

    "With my intimate knowledge of healing modalities and my experience with healers of varied disciplines, I know that Kitty’s intuition, intelligence, compassion, skill and creativity provide a depth of skill that provides deep relief and profound healing."
    - Chris Curley, Licensed Accupunturist

    “'A Journey.' This best describes my sessions with Kitty. Unlike the majority of massage therapists who 'paint by numbers,' Kitty’s work is a fusion of healing techniques. Kitty has shown me how connected the whole body is. As a physician who has had regular traditional massage work, I finally stepped out of this paradigm to better understand my pain and limitations. Kitty works to identify the source(s) of the problem, and then develops a plan to bring the body back into harmony."
    - John S Hong, MD, MS


    "As a breast cancer survivor I experienced post operative physical pain and restriction . After my first session with Kitty, I knew that I was in the right place. Not only did my body feel better, but so did my spirit. I enjoyed movement without pain, a new sense of hope and a belief that my health could be restored."
