Custom Massage & Bodywork
Custom Bodywork is my personal favorite! We discuss and decide on realistic goals and expectations for the work. I use an appropriate combination of modalities to customize a session that addresses your needs. 'Homework', which can include lifestyle changes, stretches and/or exercises that can sustain and enhance the work we do in the massage room, may be recommended.

Pfrimmer Deep Muscle Therapy®
Pfrimmer Deep Muscle Therapy (PDMT) is a highly refined system of Cross Fiber Correctional Muscle Therapy which uses a specific series of soft tissue movements designed to aid in the restoration of damaged muscles and soft tissue in the entire body. PDMT is designed to facilitate corrective changes to damaged or adherent muscles and the adjacent soft tissues.
- triggers detoxification on a cellular level
- reduces inflammation and toxic congestion trapped in muscle and soft tissue
- restores cellular exchange
- brings lymphatic fluid to the cell for remoisturizing dry, fibrous muscle
- separates fibers for independent fuction
- releases adherent factors within and outside muscle bundles
- resolves entrapment of nerves and blood vessels in hard muscle and soft tissue
Manual Lymph Drainage (MLD®)
Dr. Vodder's Manual Lymph Drainage (MLD) 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 faster recovery from cosmetic procedures, injury, reduction of swelling and discomfort from pregnancy, and strengthened resistance to illness.
Myofascial Release (MFR) is a form of soft tissue therapy intended to eliminate pain, increase range of motion, and rebalance the entire body. It does this by using massage techniques to stretch the fascia and release the bonds that exist between the fascia, muscles and bones. Fascia is the connective tissue that connects and covers all muscles, organs, and skeletal structures of the body. Direct myofascial release is sometimes known as deep tissue work. Indirect release applies light pressure and gently stretches the fascia; this allows for increased blood circulation and relief from pain.
