About Sessions

 

Therapeutic Massage & Gemstone Therapy

Each session is tailored to every client’s needs and comfort, whether you need just massage, energy work or a fusion of both.  Combining Gemstone Therapy and Massage into sessions is what makes the work at Turn A New Leaf unique and effective.  Holistically approaching a condition or area of concern from both physical and energetic aspects is very balancing and beneficial.

 

I offer two types of sessions:

Restorative Sessions:

Aim to relax and balance the entire body and mind.  Whether stressed from daily physical challenges or mentally/emotionally exhausted—our central nervous system responds by activating a fight or flight response.  Prolonged activation stresses our heart, lungs and digestive organs. A session focused on the body and being as a whole can help relax the nervous system, allowing for much needed restoration.
These sessions tend to be longer in duration (60 min, 90 min or 120 min) and can help ease conditions like anxiety, depression, Fibromyalgia and chronic fatigue.

Focus Sessions:

Target a primary area or issue of concern by layering modalities.  Most begin with energy work on the target area like a gemstone therapy treatment and acupressure then moving on to gentle massage techniques (myofascial release and Swedish massage) ending deeper massage work that can include firm pressure and stretching.

 

These sessions can be shorter (30 min or 45 min) and usually scheduled more frequently to maximize effectiveness.

Main Session Techniques:

 

Therapeutic Massage:
Utilizes different massage a series techniques to improve circulation, enhance muscle and joint function, and boost energy levels. Techniques can vary from Swedish Massage, Myofascial Release, Sports Massage and Neuro-Muscular Therapy.  All massages are done with 100% pure organic jojoba oil.

Gemstone Therapy:
Gemstones are the physical form of immense concentrations of energy, that when applied correctly can bring relief to a multitude of physical, emotional, and mental conditions. Gemstone Therapy aims to clear energetic blockages in the subtle bodies that have manifested as pain, weakness, and illness, by applying them to either localized areas of the body, chakras, or acupressure and reflex points. The gems used in my practice are exclusively from Gemisphere, who are renowned for supplying the most superb therapeutic quality stones in the world.

Acupressure:
Uses finger pressure on specific points on the body.  These points have a higher electrical conductivity at the surface of the skin and by stimulating them the body is encouraged to balance the flow of energy to decrease pain, release tension and even affect our mental and emotional state.

Shiatsu:
A shiatsu session is intimate and done in comfortable loose fitting clothing on a mat as the therapist uses finger pressure along the body to open and balance the meridians and stretches to loosen stiff muscles and joints.
