Shannon M. Wong, LMT & Reiki Practitioner
Check out the descriptions of the services I offer through massage and Reiki below. Typically I tailor a session to your needs.
This type of massage uses predominintely long, gliding strokes and gentle kneading. The level of pressure is relatively light to provide for less stimulation. A relaxation massage provides such benifits as calming the nervous system, promoting a sense of well-being, improving blood circulation and stimulating the body's lymphatic system, which carries away waste products.
Deep Tissue Massage
This type of massage uses slow
deliberate strokes, and cross fiber friction to adhesions, knots and areas of tight muscle tissue. Thumbs, fingers, elbows and forearms are used to relieve tension and areas of pain. It can provide relief from chronic pain and acute muscle spasms.
Neuromuscular therapy, which is the use of focused pressure on trigger points can often be used during a Deep Tissue session to provide relief for specific areas of pain.
Hot Stone Massage
Indulge in a Hot Stone session for pure relaxation and bliss. The lava basalt stones soothe tired, tight muscles like nothing else can. It's a wonderful treatment to have during the colder months. I use a combination of Swedish and deep tissue techniques along with the hot stones to provide a custom massage that addresses your needs.
Please call/text or email to schedule a Hot Stone Massage!
Reiki (energy work)
Reiki is a lovely form of energy work that
gently uses the laying on of hands on
different positions on the body. Reiki literally translated means "spiritually guided life force energy". Life force energy is encouraged to travel "heaven" through the practitioner, to the client. It typically feels wonderful, soothing, relaxing and can be benificial for balancing or releasing blocked energy.
Cupping has been used for centuries dating back to as early as 3,500 B.C in Egypt. Currently, cupping is used for a wide variety of reasons, but in my practice, mainly for loosening connective tissue and musculature. It releases toxins, cellular debris and lymph that are stuck within these tissues so that the body may be rid of them. I use Clear and Blue Baguanfa Cups because they are 100% Medical Grade silicone.
This can be added at no charge!
