A Therapeutic - Holistic Approach to Health & Wellness PROVIDING A FULL SPECTRUM OF BODYWORK THERAPIES
WHAT DOES IT FEEL LIKE?
After more than fifteen years as a massage therapist, I work hard to use the least amount of force necessary to providethe optimalbenefit. New and short term problems are often relieved in one session. Many clients arrive with one known issue or location, and through the duration of the session the related, and sometimes unknown conditions, can be uncovered and remedied. Most massage recipients are generally more relaxed and experience greater range of motion after receiving massage treatment.
HOW LONG DOES IT TAKE? For most people, a one-hour session is sufficient. Some treatments, such as hot stone reflexology take about one and a half hours.
WHEN CAN I HAVE A MASSAGE?
Most of the work done in this office is by appointment. Emergencies, "off-site", and short notice sessions are accommodated as schedules permit.

WHAT IS MASSAGE?
In general, manual muscle manipulation utilizing the five basic techniques, plus direct pressure, heating, or cooling can be called massage. At Becky D. Lesik, LMT CMT, you can receive treatment through more than thirty types of massage and holistic treatments.
WHICH TECHNIQUE IS RIGHT FOR ME?
The short answer is that it depends on the reason for the treatment. Overworked muscles, hyper extension, strains, repetitive stress, or bruising are typical muscular issues for which massage is beneficial, and a number of treatment options can be used. TRADITIONAL SWEDISH, HOT or COLD STONE, NEUROMUSCULAR THERAPY, CRANIOSACRAL THERAPY, MU-XING and others are commonly used for these issues.
For longer term conditions, or challenging issues such as cancer, diabetes, pregnancy, pre and post-surgery treatments, sciatica and plantar fasciitis specialized treatments such as lymphatic drainage, reflexology, or hot stone reflexology can offer great benefits.
WHEN SHOULD I HAVE A MASSAGE? There are several ways to view massage:
Recovery, palliative, preventive, maintenance, stress reduction, and relaxation are some of the more common reasons.
RECOVERY ::After unusually heavy exercise, blunt force trauma, accidents or surgery a massage can aid in the removal of toxins like lactic acid. This can ease the residual stiffness that often follows such events. PALLIATIVE ::People who are permanently debilitated or dealing with end of life challenges often receive great relief when cared for by a skilled massage therapist.Our building is ADA accessible and there are "on site" treatments available for those unable to travel. PREVENTIVE :: Prepare for life challenges. People who have a massage before major exercise, before chiropractic adjustments, and even before some surgeries usually show faster recovery and less damage compared to those who have not received a massage. MAINTENANCE :: Some clients receive regular treatments because their work places a constant strain on their musculoskeletal systems.These regular treatments allow them to remain effective in their chosen profession. STRESS REDUCTION & RELAXATION :: Identifying and releasing muscle tension often allows clients to relax mentally and emotionally aswell.Many of us endure daily strains for which we have no easy releases. Receiving a massage to break the muscle tension gives us a chance to break away from the tensions of our everyday lives. Returning to our normal activities after relieving muscle tension can give us increased vitality to face our daily responsibilities.
