An ashiatsu massage therapist using her feet to massage a client


A deep tissue massage technique in which the therapist uses her feet and gravity to create greater pressure than manual work. This treatment is highly therapeutic and relaxing, using compression and gliding strokes to generate deep tension release, muscle stretch, and greater mobility of joints.

Myofascial release therapy

The fascia is the layer of connective tissue found directly beneath the skin and runs through the body in a three dimensional web. Restrictions in the fascia are found in tight musculature, postural imbalances, scars or other traumatized or inflamed tissue. Using the John F. Barnes' approach, the therapist uses sustained pressure with hands, elbows or forearms directly to the skin with compression, stretching or a  myriad of other techniques to  address these areas of restriction.

This modality can be a stand-alone, therapeutic treatment, or be combined with traditional massage therapy. If combined, 90-120min session is recommended.

Lorien caldwell, LMT

As a therapist who has been receiving and practicing healing arts regularly since 2002, Lorien has experienced the benefits that long term care can provide. Physically, mentally, and spiritually she needed touch therapy in ways she never could have anticipated when she began study. Hence the reason Lorien began practicing Myofascial Release (MFR). While receiving this work for her own issues, she realized that MFR can take you the distance in your own health and wellness goals. In various locations across the United States, she continues to study the science at hands-on training seminars. She is constantly reminded through her practice what a paramount therapy it is. MFR can take you deep into your body's own healing capacity. It gives you the opportunity to transform the pain and dysfunction so many face on a daily basis and to connect to your whole selves. As a client of Lorien's, she discusses your own goals for treatment at every session. Because things change!
