Carolyn M. Phillips Massage Therapy
Welcome to my practice!
Welcome to my practice!
I am located in the Quarry Arts Building, a building designed and constructed to create an energetically healthy environment for Madison's healing and professional community.
It is my intention to help you heal and restore your body to a state of wellness. After a thorough evaluation of your health history, habits, work environment and pain management, I enlist a treatment plan that gives you relief in body, mind and soul. I use 100% organic Essential Oils for every massage to promote deeper relaxation and reap the benefits of Aromatherapy.
Living with pain and discomfort does not need to be a part of your life. Discomfort from the following conditions can be eliminated or greatly reduced:
Back/Neck/Shoulder pain Sciatic pain Gluteal Pain Headaches Migraines TMJD Carpal Tunnel Stress Allergies Sinus Problems Tendonitis Sports Injury Arthritis Pain
I provide therapeutic massage using an integrated approach to healing and wellness using a combination of the following techniques:
TuiNa- an ancient style of Chinese massage that stimulates therapeutically with strong, deep strokes and also includes the use of acupressure points.
Acupressure-Applied to specific acupuncture points with fingertips to open meridians and qi flow, helps to stimulate the muscles and the mind, helps treat acute and chronic musculoskeletal conditions as well as non-musculoskeletal conditions. Also helps to treat fibromyalgia, allergies, depression, insomnia, TMJ disorder and headaches.
Thai- a combination of massage, acupressure and stretches.
Deep Tissue- works to relieve chronic tension or knots.
Swedish massage-flowing, gliding stokes that help stimulate the lymphatic system and promote relaxation.
Fire Cupping-Glass cups are applied to specific areas of the body which are knotted,congested, tight, sore or "stuck". Cupping helps restore blood flow to these areas by removing metabolic waste, toxins, stagnation and restores movement and helps eliminate pain.
Gua Sha-A scraping action used along the skin with a smooth flat tool that brings up blood stagnation hence allowing blood to flow more freely to treat sore, stiff muscles.
Hot Stones-Basalt stones are heated and placed or used on areas of tension and dysfunction. Provides relief with deep relaxation.
