Nurturing Therapeutic Massage
Nurturing Therapeutic Massage (NTM) is a variation of Swedish Massage that combines mindful presence with technique. Specifically, NTM utilizes long slow strokes (effleurage) to warm the tissue and spread the oil/lotion and then deeper specific strokes (petrissage) to address specific muscles. This treatment is a full body massage with extra focus on the areas you identify.

Manual Lymph Drainage (MLD)
MLD techniques are designed to increase the movement of lymph and interstitial fluid. MLD uses gentle strokes on the skin with no deep pressure. The basic hand techniques are adapted to follow the anatomy and physiology of the lymphatic system. Your lymphatic system transports lymph, a clear colorless fluid containing white blood cells which serves important immune functions. It recognizes and responds to foreign cells, microbes and cancer cells. It works to remove toxins, fight viral, fungal, and bacterial disease, regulates the amount of fluid in your tissues, as well as absorbs protein, fat and fat soluble vitamins.
60 minutes = $80

"The fascia forms the largest system in the body as it is the as it is the system that touches all the other systems." -James L. Oschman, PhD
Injuries or chronic tightness due to the repetitive motions of everyday living (e.g. sitting at a computer) benefit from fascial therapy. Science is coming to understand that fascia is our largest system and connects all aspects of our bodies from our skin to muscles, to joints and organs. This is an interactive session involving postural analysis, fascial therapy strokes and assisted stretching. The client is dressed in shorts and a tank top and work is done on top of the table. Fascial therapy helps your body to unwind, reduce restriction (adhesions) and helps your fascia to hydrate and move.

Intuitive Presence is a form of energy-work that aims to direct more mindful attention into each client’s experience of their physical and energetic bodies. This energy-work offers a clothes-on experience of light touch, occasional sounds, off-the-body energy-work, and directed breathing. Each session is as unique as the person on the table and sessions will be approximately thirty minutes long after a brief check-in. This work is offered here at Sacred Body or at the Santa Fe Community Yoga Center Energy Clinic the first Wednesday night of the month.
