THE BC ETHOS
> Give the "power" back to the client. Education and embodiment practices allow people to feel that they are the greatest driver in their ability to heal...not the practitioner. The practitioner is simply the facilitator.
> Education! This is such a PILLAR. If we understand the "why" behind our pains, sensations, and imbalances...we will be more empowered to take a proactive step forward in our overall well-being journey.
> Practicing bodywork with clients creates short term change. LONG-LASTING change comes from balancing the body DAILY. Through self-awareness & habitual movement practices.
> From the wise words of the founder of Rolfing / Structural Integration, Ida Rolf : "Where you think it is, it ain't". The greatest shifts come from a connected, full body approach to manual therapy. Kacey's sessions are integrative and do not focus solely on the presenting discomfort. This can be a different experience than traditional massage.

My therapeutic massage incorporates various massage and bodywork techniques depending and adjusting to what each client needs on any given day. These techniques include Neuromuscular Technique, Trigger Point Therapy, Myofascial Release, basic Structural Integration techniques, aromatherapy, breath-work, table stretching, intention setting, heat therapy, cupping therapy and kinesiology taping. I use any technique I feel would most benefit the client.
Self Care Tips
Muscle soreness can occur after deep work. The following self care tips will help offset soreness and lengthen the effects of bodywork.
Drink more water than "normal"
Take an Epsom salts bath
I practice a bodywork modality called Cupping (also knowns as cup therapy, cupping therapy, myofascial decompression).Cupping stems from a Chinese Medicine origin, and is now practiced widely with-in the massage therapy community.
I no longer offer bodywork sessions for cupping alone.
All cupping therapy is now a complimentary therapy to my manual work, and will be added to a session when beneficial (if the client is open to it).
Benefits of Cupping Therapy
Increases circulation and blood flow to an area
Myofascial Release: the negative pressure created by the suction of tissue into the cups generates heat, which stimulates the mobility of fascia
Eliminates trigger points and adhesions within the myofascia
Soft Tissue pain relief
Relaxation by down-regulating the nervous system
Increases Range Of Motion of a joint(s) by loosing the myofascia around the articulation
Disperse stagnant energy
Self Care Tips
If the cupped area feels hot or itchy, use cooling care on the area. This could include some cryotherapy or lineament of choice (I recommend Tiger Balm, Real Time Pain Relief, or some DILUTED anti-inflammatory and analgesic essential oils like wintergreen, peppermint, or lavender). These sensations are NORMAL. They are a byproduct of myofascial changes.
Cup marks will most likely darken/intensify for up to 72 hours after the session
It is common to feel fatigued after a cup therapy session...listen to your body and rest if needed
