I'm Chelsea Parkhurst, CMT. I practice Swedish, Deep Tissue, Hot Stone, Acupressure and CranioSacral. CranioSacral is a gentle, non-invasive, hands-on method of evaluating and enhancing the body's own natural healing mechanisms. It focuses on the craniosacral system which consists of the membranes and cerebrospinal fluid that surround and protect the brain and spinal cord. It can help with migraines, TMJ, scoliosis, chronic neck and back pain, stress related problems, ear infections and more. A full session is done through clothing.
Acupressure is based on Traditional Chinese Medicine and is similar to acupuncture but uses eastern massage techniques and holding of pressure points as opposed to needles. It is done through comfortable clothing and is very relaxing as it uses reflexology, shiatsu and Tui Na. Pressure points along the meridians of the body enable your life force energy to flow releasing tension stored in the body. Give it a try! You'll love it!
I also offer Thai massage which is also done through clothing and uses many stretching techniques. Traditionally done on the floor, I'm doing sessions on the table because of my space.
If you want the more traditional spa massage you can receive Swedish or Deep Tissue and add hot stones or aromatherapy to any massage. Please see my list of services for more info.
I look forward to working with you!
