Massage Therapy -  

Equinox Healing Arts currently offers pregnancy and postpartum massage, Manual Lymphatic Drainage, and Bowenwork.  Those modalities are effective on their own, or can be combined depending on your needs. 

What is Manual Lymphatic Drainage?  MLD is a hands-on massage technique designed

to increase the movement of lymph and interstitial fluid.  It decreases swelling and

inflammation by activating the lymphatic system's activity, is very soothing to the nervous

system, and decreases the sensation of pain.  It can also, in the case of lymphedema,

redirect fluid around blocked or injured areas into healthy lymph vessels.

Pregnancy & Postpartum Massage

Elisabeth has received advanced certification in pregnancy and postpartum massage.  In addition, she has attended many births and been pregnant herself, and is very familiar with the physiological changes, discomforts, and joys of pregnancy and the postpartum period.

Most women find that this prenatal massage, which is based on trigger point and

myofascial release, significantly reduces hip and lower back pain.  While quite relaxing,

this is by no means a spa experience.  It is technically precise bodywork, designed to

specifically target the hip rotators, round ligaments, and sacral attachments, reducing

discomfort, and allowing for maximum opening during labor and birthing.

Chair Massage

Chair massage can be combined with table massage, or done alone, depending on the

client’s needs and comfort.
