Relaxation Massage

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.

 

Therapeutic Massage

This blended approach to deep tissue bodywork uses myofascial release and neuromuscular facilitation to eliminate pain, increase range of motion and rebalance the entire body to reduce effects of stress, acute injuries, and chronic pain management.

Manual Lymphatic Drainage (MLD)

This is a specific technique which aims to gently and rhythmically move the lymph through the body, especially swollen areas of the body, relieving pressure and enhancing the functioning of the immune system. As both a preventative and remedial technique, MLD can be used for a wide range of purposes including seasonal tune up for optimal wellness, stress resilience, allergies, faster recovery from injury, reduction of swelling and discomfort from pregnancy, gentle enough for chronic fatigue syndrome, auto immune challenges, general anxiety, pain management and strengthened resistance to illness. Click here to learn more...

Oncology Massage

As a certified oncology trained and manual lymphatic drainage massage therapist I am able to provide safe and comfortable massage which may address the side affects of cancer both during and after treatments. Benefits may include improved sense of wellbeing and energy, decreased pain, improved sleep, prevention of lymphedema and peripheral neuropathy, improved range of motion and posture. Initial appointments include a detailed consultation. Follow up visits may be 30/60/90 minutes. Email me for a clarity call.  If you are in, or have a history of cancer treatment, please inform your therapist at the time of booking. 

CranialSacral Therapy (CST)

CranioSacral Therapy is a gentle, hands-on approach to evaluating and enhancing the craniosacral system, which is comprised of the membranes and cerebrospinal fluid that surround and protect the brain and spinal cord. CST is a complementary treatment that releases tensions deep in the body to help reduce pain, relieve dysfunction, and improve whole-body health and performance. By facilitating the body's natural and innate healing processes, CST is increasingly used as a preventive healthcare measure for its ability to bolster resistance to disease. This technique may be offered as a standalone or complimentary to any therapeutic massage or energetic session. learn more about CST and how it works, here.

New! Positive State of Mind (P-SOM)

Functional medicine recognizes that proper drainage at the head, neck and thoracic inlet is essential to optimizing proper metabolism for our brain. In some cases, chronic muscle tension, traumatic brain injury, illness, forward head posture, migraines, generalized anxiety and poor sleep can contribute to the impaired function of proper drainage which ultimately leads to further poor chronic health conditions. With this new 90 minute signature service developed by Christine Baade, LMT., CMLDT. we aim to restore balance to the whole body by combining the gentle touch approach of manual lymphatic drainage with cranialsacral therapy to the head, neck, abdomen and sacrum to remove restrictions and enhance proper flow and function. Benefits may include improved neurocognitive function, reduced brain fog, improved memory and mood along with supporting general wellbeing and stress resilience. Guided meditation, tuning forks and essential oils may be used to enhance healing effects of treatment.

Reiki - Energy Work

Reiki is universal life force energy which is transmitted from the healer's hands to the receiving person through light to no touch. This practice enhances deep healing by unblocking energy and putting the subtle energy body system, otherwise known as chakras back into proper balance. Crystal placement and essential oils may be incorporated to enhance the benefits. This healing method can be used on children, adults, pets, the elderly, even those who are pregnant. It is a perfect aid for chronic health conditions, chronic pain, oncology, and of course for deep relaxation. Click here to learn more...


Reiki + Massage

Promote relaxation, inner balance and grounding to help you access deeper levels of personal transformation. Create space by clearing negative and depleting emotions that impact or physical load of tension by setting clear intentions for renewal at the start of your therapeutic session.

Sacred Hot Stone Massage

This unique experience assists in grounding, nurturing and rejuvenating mind/body/spirit by honoring the sacred earth energy. Using heated and chilled stones which have been hand harvested from the New England shoreline in addition to a crystal gemstone array over energy centers of the body, this treatment integrates traditional massage techniques of deep tissue and effleurage designed to deepen relaxation and promote circulation in your muscles, calm the central nervous system and improve systemic detoxification. The stones embody the ability to remove stress, melt knots, soften pain and work with the chakra system to balance subtle body energy and impart a peaceful glowing energy.

Yomassage

The “Yo” in Yomassage is based on the principles of yoga: focus on the breath (pranayama) and the yogic philosophy of looking within. Considered as Somatic, the combination of touch, gentle stretch, and mindfulness provide an avenue for relaxation and healing. This is a fully clothed service which may be appropriate for those experiencing anxiety related disorders. Private or couples sessions blend guided meditation, restorative yoga postures, massage or energetics while supported by bolsters, blocks and blankets. Click here to learn more...

wellness Coaching

Guided Meditation

 Mediation practices help people cultivate core values of awareness, tranquility and insight. I teach self-care strategies and coherence breathing techniques developed by the Heart Math Institutes system for heart coherence and stress resilience. With each beat, the heart continuously communicates with the brain and body via the nervous system, hormonal system, bio-electromagnetic interactions and other pathways. Bio-feedback tech measures heart rate variability to monitor and train us to easily and quickly achieve coherence in real time.

Single Session Wellness Coaching

Re-imagine your vision for self-care when you combine and customize the tools and progress you'll make in our wellness programs enhanced by the deeply restorative effects of massage therapy. Everyone is unique and beautiful for that reason. Typically, massage therapists will attempt to squeeze self-care recommendations into a tiny 5-10 window, leaving this opportunity for self-care education sorely overlooked. Schedule this dedicated time before your massage or separately to discuss your wellness goals, mindfulness practices and encourage accountability to keep you on track feeling your best.
