Cannabidiol, more commonly known as CBD is the cannabinoid in cannabis. It does not contain THC which means you won’t experience the ‘high’ effect.
When used topically during massage it provides a deep relaxing effect. A CBD massage still provides all of the benefits as a regular treatment with the added benefits of CBD.
Benefits of CBD massage:
-Reduced muscle tension. CBD helps to relax your muscles as the cannabinoids enter our endocannabinoid system via the skin. Since it doesn’t contain THC, the active ingredient of marijuana, you won’t get high from it.
-Relieves chronic pain. Reduces inflammation and soothes muscles, relieves joint pain, and arthritis pain.
-Stress and Anxiety relief. Relaxes the nervous systems and promotes relaxation.
-Boosts your mood.
Therapeutic massage is a general term for massage that focuses on specific problems whether they are physical, mental, or emotional, and can be used to relieve symptoms from many different diseases or illnesses. While therapeutic massage is relatively new to the US, bodywork has been a fundamental part of Chinese medicine for thousands of years. The doctrines of Chinese medicine focus on not only healing but preventing illness as well. We offer Amma therapy, or Chinese medical massage, which is considered Therapeutic massage and is similar to acupuncture. We use the same energetic meridians and acupoints to balance the energy and blood in your body, leading to better health. Energy that is flowing incorrectly can cause blockages, such as poor blood circulation in the affected area. The goal is to create harmony in the body by getting rid of blockages and disturbances that manifest as pain, illness, disease, and emotional issues. Therapeutic massage can help relieve pain and muscle tension and is a deeply relaxing treatment. Pressure can range from light to deep tissue based on the needs of the specific area of the body and is suitable for everyone including children, and pregnant women.
The word shiatsu literally means “finger pressure”. Shiatsu is done fully clothed, typically on a mat on the floor. It uses specific points on the body to promote free flow of energy. Shiatsu therapy can help relieve headaches, aches and pains, anxiety, stress, or other mental disturbances. The therapist can use a variety of techniques such as finger, thumb or palm, foot, elbow, or forearm pressure, kneading or tappings techniques, and joint movement and stretching techniques.
A traditional Chinese medicine heat therapy which consists of burning dried mugwort over specific points of the body. Moxibustion can be used to prevent diseases and maintain health as part of treatments to help strengthen the organs and immune system. It can be used to promote circulation over areas of chronic pain or muscle tension, relieve joint pain, can boost the immune system and help with fatigue, digestive issues.
Cupping is a technique that uses small glass or bamboo cups to create suction on the skin. Once the cup is in place it can be gently moved across the skin known as “gliding cupping”. Rather than applying pressure, it uses gentle pressure to pull the muscle upward. While cupping is not painful, bruising should be expected but skin should return to normal after about 10 days. Cupping is a method to break up stagnation and promote even flow of energy through the body. Cupping is one of the best deep-tissue therapies available. It is thought to treat tissues up to four inches deep from the skin. Cupping can provide a visible improvement in skin color after three to five treatments. Cupping removes toxins and improves blood flow through the veins. Athletes have found cupping useful in treating muscle spasms. Cupping can improve metabolism, relief from constipation, a healthy appetite, and stronger digestion. A 2015 report published in the Journal of Traditional and Complementary Medicine noted cupping as an effective alternative method of treating acne, pain, and facial paralysis, and scar tissue.
Gua sha is the practice of using a tool to apply pressure and scrape the skin to relieve pain and tension. In a 2017 study, weightlifters who had gua sha felt that lifting weights took less effort after treatment. This could suggest that the treatment speeds up muscle recovery. Gua Sha is focused on bringing toxins and excessive heat to be released at the surface of the body. It is believed that Gua Sha can help reduce the effects of the common cold, fevers, flus, neck pain, asthma and other respiratory issues. Gua Sha can be compared to the commonly known practice “Graston technique” the Graston technique was developed from Gua Sha.
Acupressure is based on the same principles as acupuncture but without the use of needles and instead using pressure. It’s the use of finger pressure on acupressure points on the body to relieve pain and stimulate the free flow of energy through the body in a targeted area.I combine acupressure techniques in most customized treatments.
Shonishin, or pediatric massage
More commonly known as pediatric acupuncture, though no needles are used and skin is not penetrated, Shonishin literally translates as sho“little”, ni “children”, and shin “needle”. This technique was developed for infants and children up to 7 years of age. This non-invasive technique uses small tools to harmonize and boost your child’s vital energy. Regular Shonishin treatment offers an alternative to pharmaceuticals and has been shown to be effective for treating Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD), allergies, asthma, eczema, hives, bedwetting, and stuttering. Children as young as one month old have been effectively treated.
Massage Therapy for Children
Massage therapy for children can help with many different ailments your child may have. The list includes but is not limited to:
Problems with sleep
Children with Attention disorders:
Regular massage therapy treatments have been shown to increase attentiveness and decrease hyperactivity in children. Massage therapy reduces sleep problems for children which contributes to the increase in attentiveness throughout the day.
Psychological issues have been a focus of pediatric massage therapy research including aggression, anxiety, depression, and posttraumatic stress disorder (PTSD). Results of one study showed children had lower parent and teacher rated aggression scores on the Child Behavior Checklist. The children also had fewer social and somatic problems.
Massage therapy is becoming more prevalent in the mental health world in treating the symptoms of PTSD. Massage therapy is shown to decrease cortisol (the stress hormone), relieve anxiety and depression, relax the nervous system, decrease insomnia, and quiets the hyper-vigilant mind. Massage therapy is a great way for traumatized children to start moving forward.
Recovering from sexual and or physical abuse:
Children who have been sexually or physically abused, or have witnessed domestic violence may not know any form of touch other than abusive and violent touch. Regular massage from a trusted therapist can help restore the child’s faith in themselves and in the rest of humanity. Human touch is so important for human development and is crucial in the healing process from childhood abuse.

Yoga For Kids
When children learn techniques for self-care, relaxation, and inner fulfillment, they can navigate life's challenges with a little more ease. Yoga at an early age builds self-confidence, discipline, and body awareness with a physical activity that's noncompetitive.
Physically, it enhances their flexibility, coordination, strength, and body awareness. In addition, their concentration and sense of calmness and relaxation improves. Doing yoga, children exercise, play, and learn to connect with themselves.
Learning mindfulness at a young age can help children navigate stressful situations throughout every stage of life. All of my children’s yoga classes start with a verbal outline of what we will be doing throughout the class so they know what to expect and also what is expected of them. We then move into breathing exercises which is incredibly important for children, especially children who have a tougher time settling down. Children can take these breathing exercises off the mat and use them in their everyday lives when they are feeling stressed or having trouble sleeping. We move into a calm focused practice followed by “play yoga” which typically includes poses named after our favorite animals; silly animal noises are encouraged. To close the class we come back to a quiet seat to calm our minds before saying goodbye.
