Island Massage Therapy ~ originally of Block Island, RI, after much journeying, has finally landed in North Kingstown, RI! Yay! It sure is good to have a home to put down some good roots, or Soul Seeds as I like to say!
My new studio is located in the Lafayette Mill Building on Ten Rod Rd, NK, and I am super excited to be sharing some new offerings with my clients. I've been studying and practicing Ayurvedic Bodywork, a very dynamic and old (think thousands of years!) health and healing system using several different modalities to help the client reach states of deep relaxation in order to access their body's own healing potential, bringing a sense of balance, ease and calm to their whole being.
The most common treatment I do is the Abhyanga, or Warm Oil massage. It's so relaxing, truly otherworldly and the results have been outta site!
I will have lots more information on Ayurvedic Bodywork coming soon!
The spectrum of my work spans from very Deep Tissue & Therapeutic massage, to more relaxing and meditative Swedish massage, and Foot Reflexology sessions. I also practice Polarity Therapy & Reiki.
As a Birth Doula I work with a lot of Pregnant people, offering support and encouragement during the Pregnancy, Labor, Birth, & Immediate Postpartum period, so naturally that extends to my massage practice. What an honor it is to offer the support of Pre/Postnatal Massage to those doing the big and extraordinary job of growing babies inside their bodies!
Being a Holistic Health Practice my goal is to offer a variety of services to help you connect to your healthy, happy, and relaxed self and nourish that connection to your source of vitality, healing, and strength.
Island Massage Therapy is dedicated to serving the community with a high level of skill and integrity.
