Massage Therapy is a centuries old practice where in the soft tissues of the body, muscles, tendons, and etc. are manually manipulated by a Massage Therapist to reduce tension, stress, discomfort, and pain within the body. There are many types of Massage Therapy, such as: Swedish Massage (sometimes known as Relaxing Massage), Myofascial Release (sometimes known as Deep Tissue), Neuromuscular Therapy (NMT), Shiatzu, and many more. All of which have their own benefits and optimal uses as treatment.
At Meditative Journeys, different techniques of Swedish Massage, Myofascial Release, and Neuromuscular Therapy are integrated into each session as befitting each client's needs in that session. Jacqueline understands that as each person is unique, so is each session, based upon what is happening in a client's life. Sometimes a client just needs to relax, and others that same client may require a more clinical approach, such as Myofacial Release or NMT to relieve discomfort.
