Massage Styles

Therapeutic Massage is designed to relieve specific areas of concern, injury recovery, scar tissues mobilization, and to release deep held patterns of tension. The benefits of therapeutic massage can help increase range of motion, decrease pain and inflammation, increase blood & lymph flow, and allow you to get back to enjoying life.

Thai Massage uses point pressure, muscle stretching and compression, done in a rhythmic movement of gentle rocking. The therapist uses her hands,  feet, forearms, knees, and elbows to free tension from the recipients body.  Thai massage is applied on a mat on the floor, the work is done fully clothed and no oils are required. Traditional Thai herbs are steamed and used to compress areas of pain & inflammation.

Sound Therapy is the application of sound through the voice and instruments to balance mind, body and spirit.  It stimulates the body’s natural healing mechanisms and can relieve headaches, menstrual pains, back pain and other ailments.

Here’s what other clients have had to say about Kathy’s work –

I had shooting pain in my shoulder with limited mobility and didn’t know what to do.  I went to see Kathy and she had a gentle manner with a deep touch that helped me immensely.  She was able to release the pressure on my nerves, help my muscles relax and used stretches to help me get my mobility back in two sessions.  I was really impressed and will go back to see Kathy if I have any pain or injuries.  ~ Dave, Truckee

I’ve been coming to Truckee for 15 years and have been to different massage places over the years until I discovered Kathy 5 years ago.  She is amazing!  I like to go biking, skiing, hiking and backpacking and it’s always nice to come back from a big day and get a massage.  ~Sharyn, Walnut Creek
