I have lived with hip pain on and off for several years, thinking it an inevitable part of aging and I was convinced it was arthritis. Shannon listened to my description of discomfort, determined where the imbalance was, and was able to provide relief in one session. Her blend of massage and yoga knowledge has created a wonderful approach to "moving massage" where necessary and beneficial. I highly recommend Shannon. -- Suzanne B.
Erin is a wonderful and a very knowledgeable massage therapist. She introduced me to Thai Massage, which my muscles desperately needed a few days before and a few days after each marathon. She customized each massage and used different techniques to address the issues my body was facing. I always felt renewed and refreshed after each massage. -- Rachel Q.
The treatment that Jamye gave me was remarkable! It stopped my pattern of very frequent headaches. In addition, I was amazed at your ability to address my shoulder problems. Your skillfulness relieved problems that I have had for many, many years. Thank you Jamye. -- Judy H.
I've been seeing Shannon for massage for several years now and am always so happy to be on her table! She always seems to know exactly what my muscles need that day. Her massage and yoga skills compliment each other well. The hot stones are SO nice and I LOVE her essential oil blends. Shannon is such a knowledgeable and skilled therapist! -- Jen S.
Erin is an excellent Massage Therapist. I initially came to see her when I had muscle tension in my shoulder so tight that I could barely raise my arm. She used a combination of cupping and deep tissue massage that got my shoulder back in good shape. I also highly recommend a Bamboo Massage. It is very relaxing... -- Kimberley E.
Jamye's yoga classes have been so beneficial for me. My back pain is under control and getting better every week. I've regained rotation in my shoulders and the added plus has been I am able to fit into my 'someday' jeans. You know the favorite pair of jeans you put away and will fit back into again 'someday'. I highly recommend yoga as an added addition to a better way of life. -- Beth T.
A life of construction work and hard outdoor recreation has affected my spine and shoulders. But Shannon's ability to identify problem areas and treat them effectively has been impressive, and I'm looking forward to more treatments--and possibly fewer chiropractor visits. -- Mike M.
Thank you, Jamye, for helping me accomplish my goal of running my first marathon. You have been a critical part of getting me ready to run week after week and keeping me injury-free. Thanks for all your instructions, advice & encouragement. I couldn't have done it without you! -- Colleen T.
Getting massage from Shannon on a bi-weekly basis has significantly reduced my chronic upper back pain. I finally understand the benefits of regular massage and highly recommend Shannon, whose sensitivity and perceptiveness, combined with her experience in massage and yoga, makes her a model massage therapist. -- Kerry S.
I was looking for someone to do deeper work on my back when I found Shannon. After the first visit, I knew I'd found my therapist. The movements she has me do during the massage really help to relieve the chronic pain and tightness I carry in my lower back and shoulders. -- Jennifer A.

Balance ~ a state of equilibrium, steadiness, or stability.

Every body strives for balance. A shoulder muscle tightens to support a weakened area (often caused by injury or overuse), and the opposite hip may tighten to maintain balance. Over time this response becomes habit, creating poor alignment and chronic pain. 

Functional Bodywork is more than just a massage. It meets you where you are and works with you to facilitate positive change. It not only relieves that pain and tension, it increases your flexibility and range of motion and decreases your chance of injury. No matter what you do for work or play, your body will feel better and perform better with regular bodywork.

Each session combines a blend of different techniques tailored to your particular circumstance. A typical session may include deep Myofascial work combined with Neuromuscular Therapy and stretches to release restrictions in a tight shoulder. On the other end of the spectrum, it could include gentle massage combined with breathwork, yoga poses, and meditation/visualization to help support fatigued adrenals.

 

Our therapists are trained in many different and complementary modalities:
