Personal Kneads Bodywork
Services & Rates.
I'm turning over a new leaf!
Yes, as of January 1, 2018 I am no longer accepting tips! You may also notice some of my rates & services have changed.
We are all unique and have different stresses on our bodies each day. Understanding this fact, my goal for each session is to properly assess your individual needs for that day & be able to give you the type of treatment reflecting your goals...whether it's relaxation, stress/tension relief, need to get a kink out of your neck, or you overdid it at the gym or out in the yard over the weekend.
If you are in need of general relaxation, tension & stress relief, OR if you're a massage newbie, this is where I suggest you start. It's my interpretation of a Swedish Massage...which is probably the most common style of massage in the west.
During these sessions, light to medium pressure is used, long, flowing strokes (effleurage), along with smaller, circular strokes (petrissage), gentle rocking & compressions in order to promote a deep sense of mind/body relaxation.
If your goal is to just lay on the table, relax & interact as little as possible, this would be perfect for you. If you prefer deeper work, another style of bodywork would probably be more appropriate for you. Please don't hesitate to call if you are unsure of your "kneads". (pricing is subject to change)

Myofascial Therapy || Deep Tissue.
A more intense style that really gets in there, targets problem areas deep in the muscles’ connective tissue. This type of work is slower, requiring more time to work through the soft tissue. Not as relaxing for some, but the results are amazing!
This is a special time to pamper Mom's-to-be & new mom's after birthing. Using similar techniques as the Pure Relaxation session, and even a soothing belly rub for baby if you'd like! It will help alleviate the discomfort due to the changes the body goes through during pregnancy. Using the bodyCushion will allow mother & baby to be gently cradled while mom lays face down or side lying.
Designed to prevent muscle & tendon injuries, shorten the recovery rate (after strenuous workouts/events), alleviate inflammation and even provide a warm-up for athletes at any level. Can involve vigorous movements, resistive exercises, stretches, compressions & percussive strokes.
A La Carte.

MY TOWEL WARMER IS BROKEN! NO WARM TOWELS UNTIL FURTHER NOTICE :(

Active Myofascial Therapy.
If you are looking for a quick & effective way to reduce pain, increase range of motion, get rid of chronic problem areas...please consider an AMT session. It is NOT your typical "just lay on the table & zone out massage." This is an EXTREMELY interactive style of therapy, using various positions (sitting, standing, on the table), movement, resistive stretching & exercise, along with trigger point therapy & myofascial release, The client is fully clothed & actively participating during the session. It is a results based form of treatment, therefore you are not paying for time on the table, as with most conventional bodywork sessions. Please call Allison for more info & pricing.
