Therapeutic Massage and Craniosacral Therapy

small black flower

For a therapeutic massage session I use a variety of techniques based on a plan we make together. Deep tissue, Swedish relaxation, cupping and trigger point therapy are a few of the modalities I weave to relax, restore and deeply work muscles. My goal is to work with your fascia to get results while also calming your nervous system so your body can absorb the work we do. 

A Craniosacral therapy session is light touch manipulations and holds where there is restriction and tension. It works to support the bones, fascia and rhythms of the cerebrospinal fluid. I strive to give the body a chance to rest, process, heal and be witnessed. Sessions are done fully clothed. It can be helpful for working with personal trauma, chronic or acute pain, injuries, TMJ, head aches and so much more.

*Prices and discounts are dependent on payment at the time of service, does not include medical billing, detailed chart noting and progress reports to referring physicians.

I follow a sliding scale model for therapeutic massage and craniosacral rates:

60 minute massage or craniosacral sessions are 50-100$ 

A Quick Guide to Sliding Scale:

I do sliding scale to increase access. I will never question your needs or payment amount. I know that figuring out how much to pay can be stressful or bring up complex feelings. Here is a rough guide inspired by Worts and Cunning:

-The top price is the cost of the massage.

-The middle prices are suggested discounts for those who are able to meet their basic needs but have little expendable income. For example, paying for this massage may qualify as a sacrifice but it would not create hardship. 

-The bottom price is discounted for those who stretch or struggle to meet basic needs and paying for this massage would be a significant hardship. 

The economic concept of sliding scale at its most basic: people pay as they are able to for services, events and items. Those with access to more resources pay more and thus provide the cushion for those with less access to pay less, creating a sustainable economic underpinning for said services, events and items.
