  • Sessions offered

    Swedish Massage

    A perfect way to relax and unwind. Swedish uses gentle, calming techniques to bring a sense of ease and relief to tight, achy muscles. Help reduce muscle soreness, tension, and pain. Help increase circulation and improve muscle tone.

    Deep Tissue

    Targets the deeper muscle and connective tissue. It can help improve blood flow, and realign the deeper muscle tissue. This uses deeper pressure, friction, kneading, stretching, jostling, and the more gentle techniques of Swedish.

    I also use a combination of Neuromuscular Therapy and Myofascial Release. This is a great choice for people that have specific ailments, injuries, or chronic pain.

    Sports Massage

    This uses passive and active stretching among other techniques. I typically incorporate aspects of this into my other sessions.

    Prenatal Massage 

    A gentle, calming massage to help ease the discomforts of pregnancy. The side-lying position is used to allow the most comfortable positioning. Must be past 1st trimester and bring a doctor's release stating you are cleared for massage.

    Massage Session FAQs

    What kind of massage do I perform?

    My work varies depending on the client's desired outcome. I use multiple techniques and methods to improve function, reduce tension, or just help you relax.

     

    What is the difference between the different styles?

    Swedish massage is gentle and non-specific. You still work the superficial tissues and can achieve relief from discomfort.

    Deep Tissue is a more focused work that targets the deeper tissue restrictions and adhesions.

     

    Will deep tissue hurt?

    Tenderness during a session is normal. Areas of high stress and restriction are typically tender to pressure. It is also common to feel a little tender in areas that receive deep, intensive work. Soaking in a hot bath, shower, or using a heating pad after a session can alleviate some soreness.

    I never want my work to hurt or cause pain. Do not feel like you have to deal with work you find to be too much. I ask for feedback during sessions so please be honest.


    How do I know when not to get a massage?

    You are suffering from a cold/flu/fever - please wait at least 24 hours after your symptoms stop to get bodywork.

    You have poison ivy/oak or other contagious skin conditions.

    Certain autoimmune disorders, diseases, spinal injuries, or physical injuries may prevent certain types of bodywork or limit the areas I can work. If you are under the care of a doctor or other health care professionals ask them if massage is appropriate. I may also ask that they contact me with an okay or the precautions I'll need to take.

     

  • About Esther

    I remember giving my mother foot rubs and back rubs, that sort of started the path. In 2006 I received my bachelors degree in English Literature from Columbia College. After I graduated I made the choice to pursue massage therapy. I attended The Massage Therapy Institute of Missouri. I was blessed with excellent instructors and a truly wonderful education. It may sound cliche but being an LMT allows me to work in a field of healing and helping people. It is so rewarding to help people get back in touch with their bodies - to realize they don't have to live in pain, and learn ways to listen to what their body is saying.  

    I am currently attending Wellspring School of Allied Health to add Personal Training and Wellness Coaching to my practice.
