Alyssa Schafer LMT.
Mulit-faceted passion for Mind, Body, Soul, alignment, Alyssa Schafer LMT is driven toward health and wellness as a way of life and daily living. Recognizing that the connection between how we feel physically, is largely a result of what we are thinking, mentally.
Alyssa has a background in therapeutics, trigger point therapy, myo-fascial release, cupping, deep tissue, sacral therapy, pre and post-natal massage, energetics and aromatherapy. During each visit, Alyssa incorporates range of motion through integrative stretching and activated awareness, and allowing the client to be a part of his or her own healing, as a journey to be explored, together. Breathwork, and stress management are also addressed as part of the integrative experience, as each session is truly structured on an individual basis.
In her free time, she enjoys being in Nature, and exploring the wild woods with her kitties; cultivating life in the garden and indoors, cooking nourishing sustenance for family and friends, practicing presence through gratitude and learning along the way how to navigate through life with ease and grace.
Swedish Massage is a very relaxing and therapeutic style of bodywork. It combines oils or lotion with an array of strokes such as rolling, kneading, and percussion to help the body improve its circulation. The benefits of this type of bodywork are wide-ranging and include relief from aches and pains, decreased stress levels in the body, enhanced mental clarity, improved appearance, and greater flexibility.
Hot Stone Massage
Hot Stone Massage is a style of massage where heated stones are placed at specific sites on your body to deepen relaxation and promote circulation in your muscles. Muscles that are heated with these stones release tension and stress much more deeply and quickly than with a traditional massage. The overall experience is very relaxing, nurturing, and rejuvenating.
Deep Tissue Massage
Deep Tissue Massage is a form of bodywork that aims to relieve tension in the deeper layers of tissue in the body. Deep Tissue Massage is a highly effective method for releasing chronic stress areas due to misalignment, repetitive motions, and past lingering injuries. Due to the nature of the deep tissue work, open communication during the session is crucial to make sure you don't get too uncomfortable. Keep in mind that soreness is pretty common after the treatment, and that plenty of water should be ingested to aid with the flushing and removal of toxins that will have been released from the deep tissue during the session.
Chair massage is a popular way of relieving stress and releasing tension right in your home or workplace. You receive your massage in a specialized ergonomic chair which I bring to your location. In addition to the usual health benefits of massage, another benefit of chair massage is that it is done over the clothing. With seated massage, you can avoid the discomfort and awkwardness that you may feel in disrobing for a traditional massage. Also, chair massage sessions are usually shorter than traditional massage, making it convenient enough to fit into your busy schedule.
Injury Massage Therapy
Injury Massage is catered to each client's specific needs, whether the cause is a car accident or work-related injury. I am able to work with you to cater your massage to your particular need and health requirements in order to get your body on the path of health, healing and recovery.
You Deserve It
Why have a regular massage when you can have a custom massage!
I believe that each client is different and each day the needs of the client may have changed. Each massage should be different and could be treated as unique as the individual. I make sure to check in with my client throughout the massage to ensure the best pressure and comfort of my client.
