Massage and Bodywork promote blood flow and circulation, relieve muscle tension, decrease inflammation, and help to alleviate stress. These therapies stimulate the release of endorphins, activating the happiness center in the brain to regulate stress and pain responses. Over time, the frequency and severity of symptoms diminish as the body maintains a relaxed state, both physically and mentally.
Marisa may incorporate various techniques during your session, tailored to your specific condition and wellness goals. Whether you are an athlete, dealing with chronic pain, or simply seeking relaxation, Marisa’s holistic approach aims to bring balance and healing to both body and mind.

We offer a variety of massage styles including Migraine and TMJ Relief, Sports Massage, Deep Tissue Massage, Swedish Massage, Custom Massage, and Reiki Energy Work.
During your initial appointment, Marisa will discuss your concerns, challenges, and goals to help determine which type of massage or bodywork will be most beneficial for your individual needs.
Dress comfortably. For most massage types, you will be asked to undress to your level of comfort, but you will be covered with a sheet and blanket at all times. Reiki Energy Work is performed with the patient fully clothed.
The initial appointment includes a detailed discussion and a customized treatment, with follow-up treatments tailored to your individual requirements. The exact duration of each session will be discussed during your appointment.
The frequency of massage sessions depends on your individual needs, health goals, and preferences. Marisa will work with you to develop a personalized treatment plan.
Coverage for massage therapy varies by insurance provider and plan. Please check with your insurance company to determine if massage therapy is covered under your plan and if a doctor’s referral is required.
Reiki Energy Work aims to balance chakras, move stagnant energy, alleviate "dis"ease in the body, reduce stress, and promote healing. It is a gentle, light-touch therapy suitable for those seeking relaxation and balance.
