Styles uniquely offered by Kamila, at Equilibria.
 

Reiki

Reiki has become much more well known and appreciated in the recent years.  Kamila was trained in the Usui lineage, but realized that she has in fact is self-taught in this healing for years before her official training.  Our intuition is often our best teacher.

With the unconditionally loving intent of healing Presence, this very simple form is profound in it’s impact.  By holding space with you, your body can find healing for itself.  With deep inner quite, you will be led and supported to follow into this deep, quiet place as well.  Reiki is done clothed while laying on a massage table.  Reiki can help speed healing post surgery, increase ones ability to Love (self and others), help move through or release grief and other difficult emotions, ease anxiety and provide longer term skill in managing anxiety.  It is beneficial for just about anything.  We all need Love, as well as relaxation to balance our nervous systems.  In a world with much to rattle the nerves, Reiki comes in to bring us back to balance.

Energy Work/Chakra Balancing

I feel subtleties in the body.  After almost 10 years of being a bodyworker, and a lifetime as an empath, I am sensitive to Energy.  What do I mean when I say ‘energy’?  You know when you get a ‘feeling’, a sense?  Some of us are better than others in trusting our this ‘sense’.  Some might call it intuition.  As a bodyworker, this sense can get quite refined over time, especially if you are someone who ‘listens’ really closely, really quietly.   Message can come through, and after responding to them, sharing them and seeing the powerful effects from these messages, it has come to be an important tool for healing.  

Chakra’s are a system of understanding which help us to organize the various aspects of what it means to be human.  From our basic needs, relationships to ourselves, our world, our emotions, our spiritual selves – these are represented in the chakra system.  By growing more familiar with each chakra, we can be guided more deeply into our healing and fulfilled expression in this life.

Swedish Relaxation

For those who are preferring a lighter pressure, soothing relaxation massage is a deeply calming, Swedish styled flowing massage that works as an energy balancer, gentle detoxifier, and wonderful balm on the nerves.

Deep Tissue Massage

Our specialty, and most requested style, Deep Tissue Massage does not mean hard or painful.  It means working deep enough to effectively release areas of tension, restriction, and pain.  We work with you to find your “edge”.  Your edge is the place where it hurts ‘good’. It is a place that may feel a bit intense, is not intense enough for your body to contract or stiffen in response to the pressure.  Finding this place is key to getting muscles to relax.  Using forearms and elbows in a slow mindful manner, we will communicate with you to find your “edge” and guide you with breathing to get the relief in those tight and or painful areas.

Myofascial Release

To understand what Myofascial Release is and why it works, you have to understand a little about fascia. Fascia is a thin tissue that covers all the organs of the body. This tissue covers every muscle and every fiber within each muscle. All muscle stretching, then, is actually stretching of the fascia and the muscle, the myofascial unit. When muscle fibers are injured, the fibers and the fascia which surrounds it become short and tightened. This uneven stress can be transmitted through the fascia to other parts of the body, causing pain and a variety of other symptoms in areas you often wouldn’t expect. Myofascial Release treats these symptoms by releasing the uneven tightness in injured fascia, leading to improved mobility, alignment, and posture, as well as circulation, therefore overall health.

The styles below are offerings only offered by Olivia Wycoff, LMT at Equilibria. 

Ashiatsu

Ashiatsu Oriental Bar Therapy is a Western Therapy inspired by Eastern techniques. The therapist uses parallel bars above the massage table to support themselves while delivering broad deep smooth pressure with their feet.  Ashiatsu is a deep tissue massage and is highly effective in lengthening shortened muscles and melting away knots and tightness.
 

Hot Stone Massage

Hot stone massage originally from Hawaii uses hot stones to warm up the tissue and melt away knots.  The stones are used as active tools as well as passively left on back, palms and feet for a deeply relaxing massage.
