This type of massage works with the connective tissue in the body, and allows for deep releases with often surprising new understandings of how parts of the body connect.
This type of massage offer specialized myofascial techniques specifically focused on relieving TMJ symptoms. Missy’s own issues in this area led her to seek out more training, and over time, she’s combined that training with her own knowledge and understanding of the body to make this work available to you. Getting a general massage helps, but when dealing with issues in this specific area, these techniques bring more relief because they get into deeper muscles, ones that don’t ordinarily get touched.

Reflexology is the practice of applying pressure to the feet and hands utilizing specific thumb, finger and hand techniques with or without the use of oil, cream or lotion based on a system of zones and reflex areas that reflect an image of the body on the feet and hands with a premise that such work effects a physical change in the body.
Research has demonstrated such effects for several reflex areas and their reflected parts of the body. In general terms, the benefits of reflexology have to do with the reduction of stress. Because the feet and hands help set the tension level for the rest of the body, they are an easy way to interrupt the stress signal and reset homeostasis, the body’s equilibrium.
